Question about Moen 3175 Legend One Handle Shower Faucet With trol Pressure Balancing Valve....
Ok, I just installed a 50 ga LP hot water tank and I still don't have enough hot water for 1 person to take a 8 min shower and at the end of the shower cold is turned completely off and only hot know is on. I believe it has to do with a newly installed shower valve. If I go to the shower valve and turn cold water on, it runs fine. If I turn hot water on it runs fine. If I go to the hot water tank and turn hot supply off to the house and go back to shower and turn the hot water on it is dry if I turn cold water on it just barely trickles out. The valve is a single handle moen turns counter clockwise starts on cold and turns to hot.
Take off handle (screw under cap) there is a plastic peice behind for ajustment if you move it one way it allows more if you move the other way less contact me if you have problems thank you for useing fixya please rate me

Hello, first if any water supply hot or cold is turned off, you will experience trickling as you mention. You must have both cold and hot in order to adjust the temperature on your valve. if you had a plumber intall this unit you should ask him to adjust it. Otherwise here is how:
Rotate the handle counterclockwise to stop and let water run till cold water is purged, check
temperature. Rotate handle to off, remove handle parts (see Disassembly in your manual) and temperature limit stop, rotate clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase maximum hot water temperature, reinstall temperature limit stop and handle (TIP: Do not screw handle in until desired maximum temperature is achieved) Repeat steps until desired maximum
temperature is achieved
