I have a Brizo Shower and can't get the water hot enought

I have a Brizo Shower with a hot water limiter. I have set the limit stop at the highest possible setting but the water is still not hot enough. About 101 F. Water temperature at the sink is 120 F so it is not the supply.

I just installed abrand new single handle delta shower faucet and the water does not get hot enough.

Many single-handle shower mixers have a hot limit, usually limiting the throw of the handle. You could go to the mfg's website ( & find instructions for adjusting it. Or, if you're handy, you could take off the handle & have a look; it shouldn't be too hard to see what's stopping the handle from turning more towards the hot side. Make changes in small increments & remember where you started.

Shower not getting enough flow of water on hot possition cold flow normal! ..what could be the problem?? since all other are working just fine..

There is a safety limiter in the shower control. This essentially limits how far towards hot you can set the control. Yours sounds too low.

What you do is tape the drain, so you do not loose any small pieces, remove the lever handle, usually an allen, and then you can see what is limiting movement. Ususally a gear affair.

Scribe with a small scratcher, the current position, and Reposition it some in the direction you would thing gives more hot water...and test the hot temprature.... either you will have more or less, and then adjust accordingly.

WEll, the question is do your sinks have water that is hot enough? If no, perhaps your water heater is set too low. If yes, many shower controls have hot limiter and if you pull the handle, often there is a spline assembly that stops the travel from going hot, adjust to allow more.

Why is my hot water so low on pressure with a single handle faucet. Parts have been replaced yet pressure reduces to less than half when trying to get enough hot water to shower and rinse. Could this be...

Remove handle and adjust the rotational limit stop. As you move the rotational limit stop counter clockwise it will increase more hot water in the mix.
Remember where it is before starting and pull in back onto shaft out of place so you can move it a little and put back into place. It should have marks to line up to get you different setting's. Just put handle on and turn on and check for desired hot setting.

The only way to adjust this is to pull it out of place due to it fitting in place like a gear and reinsert and check water.
