SOURCE: shower gets hotter or colder when toilet is flushed.

The problem you have is so common. It is caused by the fact that all of the water lines in the house are the same size, usually 1/2" copper tubing. The only way to eliminate this problem is to use 3/4" tubing as the main lines and branch off with 1/2" near each faucet. Not an inexpensive fix. In the short run tell everyone not to flush the toilet when the shower is in use.

How do I adjust water temperature after valve has been installed


Don,

there be should be a knob (typically red in color) on the front of your water heater, with temperature degrees listed. The knob should also delineate a typical range of settings for domestic use, which range from 120 degrees to 160 degrees. While a hotter setting will allow an increased amount of warm water, for example for longer shower duration, these temperatures can present a risk of scalding and require more energy to maintain the selected temperature.

Adjusting Apollo hot water tank


I am not sure what you are asking, But i am going to assume that you want to know about changing the Temp on the heater for inside the house.
If the floor heat was installed properly than it should have a temperture manifold or adjustable thermostat for seperate heating.
You need to find the thermostat or manifold for the garage heat and set it at what ever temp you want the garage to stay at.
Then you can change the A B C knob to a higher setting A is cold B is warm ac is hot. So Increase your temp setting on the heater and this will increase your house water temp for hotter showers and faucet temps. However, they recommend not setting the temp above 120 degrees to prevent severe burns.
If you have a newer home increasing the Hot water heater temp setting may not change the temp at the shower or faucets if you have scald guard faucets installed in the house. This will require adjusting the scald guard valves on each faucet.
I recommend using a candy thermometer or digital thermometer to check the faucet and shower Temp prior to using them and make sure that you inform everyone in the house after you change the temp so that no one gets scalded.
I hope this answers you question, feel free to contact me if you need more help!

How do I just the water heater to make the water hotter


To make the water hotter, u may constrict the water flow that goes through the tap, shower etc. With the water flows slowly, the heater has more time to heat the water in it and then the water will be hotter although it won't be boiling hot(100 degrees Celcius) because the water heater is not designated to heat water up to that temperature

I installed a 30 gallon gas hot water tank and sometimes i get strong water pressure but my hot water doesn't last long enough for 2 showers, but if i have low water pressure we can get in 4 showers. Any...


At a high pressure you are consuming more hot water. It sounds to me like the water heater isn't big enough for what you need. You can try turning up the heat thermostat on the water tank. If the water gets hotter you won't need as much for each shower and it will also recover faster at a higger temperature.

My 50 gal elec water heater model #81v52d only stay hot during a shower for 10 min how do I make the water hotter is there a dial on it?


Remove the four screws that hold the covers on the side of the water heater and carefully spread the insulation apart to see the thermostat,reset button and heating elements. The thermostat will have a adjusting screw on it that you can turn with a small blade screwdriver.There is a arrow pointing to temperature setting that you can adjust by turning the screw clockwise to increase the temperature. They normally come from the factory set at 120 degrees so you can turn it up to 135-140 and see if that helps.
Thank you and I hope this helps you.

The thermostatic stop is set too low. Havent set a grohe before but most other thermostatic shower valves work similar. pull off the handle(however a grohe handle comes off . . ) there should be a notched ring or stop which keeps the handle from going all the way hot. pull out the ring and turn it a few teeth hotter put back and reinstall handle try water temp and adjust again if necessary.

The temperature in my shower is very luke warm only at the shower


Do you mean the other faucets in the house are hot and only the shower is warm? If so there is an anti-scald adjustment on the faucet that needs to be turned up a few notches. Havent adjusted a Grohe faucet but most faucets you rmove the handle and behind the handle is a nothced adjustment ring that prevents the faucet from getting too hot. This ring, or stop, is pulled out and twisted clockwise(or counter clockwise to set higher or lower max temp, then pushed back. maybe you can look up grohe to see which way ring or stop adjusts for hotter water.

Shower gets hotter or colder when toilet is flushed.


This is typical for an installation without a balanced valve/anti-scald valve on the shower.

If you are using manual on/off valves on the shower, about the only way to fix this is to install the device mentioned in the previous paragraph.
