SOURCE: Shower goes hot and cold

If you are having trouble only at the one fixture (shower), and no where else, the problem is most likely in the shower valve...which either needs new cartridges, or a complete replacement.
hope this helps

SOURCE: electric shower hot and cold

it sounds like the flow is too low and causing the heat chamber to overheat ( or the heat sensor is faulty and thinks it is too hot) is the water too hot before it goes cold?

these valves can be adjusted by removing the handle and adjusting the white gear that regulates the hot and cold that come out, try going more to one way if it gets colder then go the other way.

Lets watch a video

The hot and cold being reversed is an easy fix. When he took the handle off and exposed the cartage the small stem in the middle there are two flat spots on the stem with the screw hole in it just take some pliers and turn the stem 180% you don't have to turn the water off for this. DON'T TAKE THE KEEPER OUT FOR THIS!
If cartage dosen't want to come out as mentioned in the video be ferm with it but don't get ruff. If the cartage was hard to get out it is a good idea to sand or clean the hole it came out of some very fine sand paper wraped around a pencel well do the trick. If you do sand use a squirt bottle and wash any debree out of the hole.

If not they must install a prv (Presure reducing velve) on the cold going to the house and geyser befor it t,s of to the house and even if the rest of the house water is fine u must ask ur plumber who intalled it if he took the cold water going to the new shower strait of the mains if so he must corect it by t-ing in at the right cold water supply or put a velve on the cold water to ruduse the cold presure . then u will have more hot presure and that means lovely hot shower

Very little cold water, lots of hot from kohler shower valve


Probably some pipe rust clogged the exit.
If u have pretty low presure as default on both hot and col water, try keep force closed by hand the water exit at shower pipe, then start both cold and warm water gradually as much as u can keep it closed with the hand.
The hot water pressure going back thru the cold water pipe might unclog that debris.
Just a simple fix which many times works as a charm..
Otherwise if this is not fixing, try close both water from main service valve.
Then unscreew the secondary shower valves and manually clean them or replace if very damaged.

Pressure is high can it be adjusted?


Is this a new install? Is this happening with cold and hot water, or just one? Is it just happening with the shower valve open if it's not a new install. it may be the shower valve bad. These can be replaced easily, Lowes $7-14 depending on brand. The water has to be shut off from coming in to the shower. If it is happening with the water running on either hot/cold, the each one has a valve like the shower knob. These go bad and are replaced the same. These release to much water when the rubber seal breaks down inside the valve. Let us know which way it's happening and maybe able to help more.

Cold water suply filling up header tank in loft thru hot water suply on shower.


hi did you run a seperate cold water supply from the storage tank to the shower pump & also a seperate hot supply from the hot water cylinder, it sounds as though the cold water is crossing into the hot service & pushing its way up to the tank as its the only way it can go, sounds as though the cold water connection to the shower is not tank fed & possibly directly off the water main.?
