Question about Plumbing
Very soon after installation, the handle on our Hansgrohe Swing C pressure balance valve started to loosen, so it is difficult to control the water temperature. Our contractor has tightened the inside screw several times, yet the problem immediately recurs. We have managed to live with this problem, yet now must rent our home (due to unemployment) and therefore need it to finally work properly. Is this a common problem and, if so, please advise how to *permanently* fix it.

i looked at it and there might be a press in cap with a screw underneath where the grohe label is. there also may be a set screw around the shoulder of the handle where an allen hex wrench fits to losen its clamp on the stem. also.......some handles just snap on and just pull off with some tugging and wiggling them just right.

Remove the handle by loosening the screw near the bottom. You should see a plastic ring, probably green, that is the hot water safety. Adjust it so that the handle will turn further for more hot water. It most likely pulls out, then turn it left, reinsert and reattach the handle.
