SOURCE: moen single handle valve tub/shower

The Moen Posi-Temp Valve is a pressure balanced valve and when not used for long periods of time they can stick causing only cold or hot water to pass through the valve.
A New Posi-temp cartridges can be purchased at most plumbing supply houses or big box outlets such as Lowes or Home Depot.
As long as you had cold water before, a new cartridge will solve the problem. In the future it would be wise to occassionally operate the valve at least a couple of times a month in order to keep the pressure assembly from becoming lodged in position. Just follow the instructions included with the new cartridge on the proper removal of the old cartridge and the installation of the new cartridge. a little silicone grease inside of the valve before installing the new cartridge will also help.
Be sure that there is no particles of the old cartridge left in the valve.

SOURCE: shower not getting enough flow

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.

SOURCE: my creda shower 8500dl won't shut off water keeps

Switch off the power at the main switchbox!

Unscrew the shower cover to reveal the main valve/switch assembly (green in my case)

On the green valve you can line up the bit that moves to select power settings and remove it

Undo the two screws holding the outer switch frame and lift it off

Undo the two screws holding the valve body in.

Remove the valve body, underneath you will find an ordinary tap washer - probably split

Replace the washer - I didnt have an exact match in my toolbox but drilled the middle out of a large tap washer to match

Reassemble..

Water was turned off because of fault now shower is running cold water what do i do


Most showers have a low flow protection on them so it is either the mains pressure has dropped after the fault was repaired or it could be a blocked filter, the shower should have a low flow indication on it by means of a light on the front of the shower unit.

I have a Moen tub and shower system similar to the Moen 2919 Chateau two handle above. When I turn on the faucets up to 1/2 way everthing works fine. If I try to increase the water capacity by turning up...


To talk about your problem forces me to assume a few things.....If you allow the water to flow without cartridges and handles, the water must be flowing straight through the cartridge channels and out into the tub. It is not flowing through your tub spout or shower head when you test the water this way. If I'm correct, then the problem is isolated to the water mix operation. That means coming out of your spout or shower head. So now I have to ask a question. When you operate as normal (cartridges and handles installed) does your problem show up only on your shower head or does it also show up when operating out of the tub spout? If the problem is isolated to the shower head, try a head replacement. It may be partially plugged. If it's head or spout there may be something in the mixing pipe that only shifts around as pressure increases. I hope that is not your problem. It would require pulling those pipes out for inspection and most likely replacement. Nimsgame

Hi my bosch tankles water heater lites up and the goes out any ideas what i should check. best wishes


Hello, Your Tankless water heater will briefly turn on when the propane is turned on and you switch it on but it only stays on when the shower handle is turned on to allow the flow of water. The water faucet must be on obviously. The unit will only stay on while the water is flowing out of the shower head.
If the unit doesn't turn on there is 3 things that will prevent it from operating correctly; 1. Batteries must have a charge /power. 2. The propane fuel must be on. 3. Water must be flowing from the shower head regardless of the spray pattern.
Good Luck!

Rinnai gas water temperature keep alternating from hot to cold


A fault often found with these units is due to insufficient water flow. Usually this causes specifically the shower to run hot and cold. Try turning on more than one hot supply; if this fixxes the fault you will need to try and increase water flow. Most new tapware/showerware have water flow restictors built in. These are the cause of many problems with continous flow heaters such as the Rinnai. In taps they are usually located in the spout if it unscrews. In showers try the shower hose. Find them and take them out. Also make sure your mains supply to the house is on full.
There are more technical faults but this is something you can easily try first.

This is not an uncommon problem with 'flash heaters' of this type; for safety, they all require a certain minimum of flow before the gas supply is turned on. Some brands/models have a factory-set adjustment for the minimum flow rate.
You might locate the mfr.'s website, contact them and describe your problem. This can also be caused by the modern flow-limited shower heads not allowing enough water to flow to keep the heater turned on.
If you have a retired shower head, you might try replacing the one currently used to see if it allows enough flow to allow proper operation. Either way, it is a waste of water.

These unit is design to operate at a specific flow rate and cannot be ajusted if you need to have a warm shower you will need to get a bath remote where you can turn down the temp whenever you need without disrupting the flow rate

Water pressure to main hose has ceased, with water now pouring out of a small outlet pipe at bottom of unit next to fixing for main hose.


Sounds like your outlet at the top has clogged with grit/dirt. Turn the shower off, remover the entire shower head hose from its base (where it screws into the wall or pipe. Turn water back on. If you get a steady flow (as you should) the problem is isolated to the shower head/hose. Detach the shower head from the hose and clean the screen inside, attach hose back on first, try water again, if this flows then your blockage is in the head itself. After removing and cleaning the screen inside the shower head, reattach and run water, this should fix your problem, if not, you may need a new shower head. If the water will not flow to the outlet pipe alone, either your shower switch is broken or you have a serious plumbing problem.

generally if the flow sensor notices no water through the pump it will auto matically shut the pump down. so it could be the flow sensor is bad or the pump is not working like it should. now it depends on how old the pump is. i would start with the flow sensor.
