Moen single handled shower the hot water turns cooler then cold after a minute


Your whole house is likely plumbed wrong so that it is impossible to have equal pressures of both hot and cold at your shower. If you had your home plumbed with aquapex using a radiator for the hot water and a radiator for the cold water and have the radiators fed with a 1 inch line you can have close to perfect pressures.

Shower not getting very hot


Check all the valves to be completely rotated and the shower valve to be set on hot water.

Try waiting a few minutes and see what's happening.

Last I cand think about is that your heating device isn't working properly, so call an plumber.

My Grohe Aquatower 3000 shower is wonderful BUT after 5 or 6 minutes, the water starts cooling off. Is there some adjustment to keep the water warmer for 10-15 minutes?


You are lucky that your shower is lasting as long as it does. If you have a standard 40 or 50 gallon water heater, mixed with 30% cold water as it comes out, you can expect about 60 gallons of hot water, give or take a little bit. Each of those showerheads on that Aquatower is rated at 2.5 gpm. Even if you are just using the body sprays, you could be using 10 gallons of water EACH MINUTE. There is really only two things you can do, and that is to raise the temperature of your hot water heater by 5-10 degrees so you are mixing more cold water with the hot. The other thing is to buy a bigger hot water heater, or supplement the one you have with another water heater in series.

Water turns cold very quickly


I had the EXACT same problem (installed my tankless last winter and worked fine, now this summer it fluctuates, have to turn the shower completely off and then on again to get any hot water and then it only lasts for a couple of minutes!) Argh - it is frustrating!

Here's what I found: the demand for hot water is lower during the summer (hot) months because the "cold" water coming in is already quite warm. You don't need as much hot water to make the shower temp comfortable. SO, my tankless was shutting off due to low flow demand. I've removed the flow restrictor from my shower head and it helped alot but didn't completely solve the prob. Next step is what has been recommended to me by several people but is much more expensive - change the pressure valve on your shower to a temperature valve. Or just wait til winter and it should work ok again :)

I have a 40 gal Whirlpool single element 3500 mobile home hot water heater. I have replaced the element thermostat high pressure valve (because it was leaking) & flushed for sediment. In morning I wash...


A 40 gal. electric water heater will give you aprox. 32 gal. of hot water in one setting, since they do not reheat as quickly as gas. So if you are using a newer 1.5 or 2.0 gpm shower head. You could take a 16 minute shower with straight hot water. If you are running 2 new shower heads at once you could get 8 minutes. If you using the tub spout the times decrease. Some of my customers like to turn up the temerature on the thermostat a little so they can mix more cold and get it to last a little longer. Be very careful doing this.
If your water heater has a lot of calcium built up in it the times will decrease.
With out seeing the heater, you mention it is a mobile home heater so I am guessing that it is bottom fed.
I hope this has helped.

Bath tub water doesn't stay hot


it is because the tub has a temp control valve in it so if you were to put more cold with the hot it will last longer but still won't be all the way hot,, now a days people are suing the manifacture because they are getting burned form the hot water so they put these saftey temp controls in place of the old style 2 or 3 handle faucets,, there fo no more real hot water nothing you can do outside of change to the othere type of faucet 2 or 3 handle tub shower diverter,, that why the water is hot in the sink but not the tub.....

Hot water is cutting out after 2 - 3 minutes whilst showering


check the screen on the cold water intake on the cold side,, you might have to flush the system out, and do you have the shower head water restricter in, if not you may be using to much hot water,,, how many other hot water fixtures are running at the same time? try running just the shower,,,if this is a tank water heater the dip tube could be bad that is on the cold side it takes the cold water to the bottom of the tank and forces the hot water out,, if you ar only getting a couple of min of hot water and the dip tube is bad it is not going to the bottom but just at the top and not getting all the hot water you will need a plumber
