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.

pull the handle off and there is a black dial you can pull out and readjust on the shaft of the cartridge that will allow you to have cooler and hotter settings. it's black plastic and has little splines on it . the more you go one way the hotter it gets and the same the other way gets cooler

Should be able to adjust clockwise or counter clockwise to adjust the temp. You said that the temp used to be hotter. Check the temp setting on your water heater. Did you replace your old water heater? Hope this helps.

The way anti-scald valves work is there is a slide tube inside the faucet which requires pressure from both hot and cold or else it will cut off the flow. As for temperature adjust I do not believe there is an adjustment screw but more so there are these white plastic toothed stop rings which prevent the handle from turning 360 degrees. When your adjust the stop ring, it adjusts how much hot water is allowed to mix with the cold water. My wife likes her showers a lot hotter than I, so I gave a good allowance with the stop ring. The "adjustment screws" which you are viewing are not for adjustment of temperature, they are remote cut-off screws to stop the water entirely to change the washers in the unit if needed. SO open those all the way and leave them open. Think of them as not having to go all the way into the basement to shut off the water supply just to change a few washers.

Testimonial: "Thank you exHandyman.... it worked "
First step remove handle and behind it there is a dial that looks like a gear. Mark where it is and remove it and put back in about a 1/4 to 1/8 turn counter clockwise to increase to hotter temp.
These faucets are equiped with anti scald setting's to protect the public and preset for this reason.
