It is more that likely the valve in the stem of your fixture, I'm assuming this is a single handle faucet. If you can replace the valve, you will cure your problem. I am giving you a link to how to adjust the hot water temp.

The way the faucet cartridge is designed it will protect you from large changes in water pressure. This can happen if someone is useing the shower and someone else flushes a tolet there is a sliding valve in the cartridge that will close off hot water supply to protect you from getting scalded.If you are not getting hot enough water there are adjustment you can make to increase the maximum setting.
As long as you are getting good hot water supply in other fixtures in your house I doubt that changeing the water heater is going to help.
I think that you may have a defective cartridge and I would call delta again and give them another chance. They generally have very good customer service, and perhaps the one you talked do did not understand that you have good hot water supply elsewhere.
If you do not have hot enough water to shower valve that can eaisily adjusted by removing set screw that holds the handle on and remove the handle.If there is a white temp. limit disc on the stem then remove it. Slid the chrome sleeve from around the valve body off. You should see a disc that you can slid out a little and rotate to the left a small amount. This adjusting disc and its mating surface have teeth on them that mate. There should be marks on the valve and disc with a arrow on them to show which way to turn for hotter water.Reassemble and check.
If your water starts out hot and then gets cooler while being used and you still have hot water in other places then I think you have a defective cartridge. It should be under warranty. Hope this helps you some. Good luck and thank you.

We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had our hot water heater replaced. Now it takes longer for hot water to get to the faucet. Could debris (calcium build up, etc.) from the replacement get in...


Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

Attempted to update a single level "diamond" ball shower handle for an older Delta 600 series. Everthing seemed to go well, but when I turned the water supply back on, and when the handle was pointed...


On a single lever shower handle, when the handle is pointing straight down the water is off. The handle will then rotate 270 degrees to the right through cold - warm - hot. What has happened is when you took the other handle off the new handle didn't go into the same position as the old one. So now when the handle stops at the down position the valve is still open probable running cold water. The fix is to take the handle back off. Rotate the valve into the off position so that water stops flowing and reinstall the handle pointing down. Now when you rotate the handle to the right you will get cold then warm then hot at 270 degrees and back to off when the handle is pointing back straight down. If you are still having problems please let me know and we will examine it a little closer.

I have an older single handle Delta shower valve, and I am only able to get good water pressure on cold water (which is opposite of the normal right hand). Can you suggest a solution?


A rebuild kit for a shower is pretty cheap for delta. the actual ball behind the handle maybe wore and not allowing it to seat properly and restricing water flow hot side.

Also if you take it appart the 2 washers and springs you might as well replace them also.

Replace washers and springs and the ball with shaft that handle fits to.

Shut off water before taking appart.

My shower has a delta monitor single faucet. And the flow has diminished so much that I am only getting few drops. The house has a lot of water pressure. What can I do?


Sounds like you have lost pressure on one side of the valve. ( either hot or cold ) Or the cartridge has gone bad. If you have hard water if probably is the cartridge. There are a couple of different series for your style of faucet.

The reason why you only get a few drops is the cartridge is pressure balancing. It is a safety device which prevents scalding if one side of the supply shuts down.
