SOURCE: shower gets hotter or colder when toilet is flushed.

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.

SOURCE: How can I adjust the shower knob to produce hotter

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.

SOURCE: I have a pioneer shower valve that has pressure problem

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.

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.

I have a moen shower faucet where the water mixture keeps getting hotter with very little cold coming through. the temp must be set nearly all the way to cold to prevent scalding.


Sounds like a pressure-balance shower valve. The pressure balance cylinder is stuck. With water off, remove knob and trim plate. Remove pressure balance cylinder (horizontal). May be hard to get out. Use emory paper to clean up cylinder and smooth it so it moves freely. Reassemble and you'll be happy.

Adjusting Apollo hot water tank


I am not sure what you are asking, But i am going to assume that you want to know about changing the Temp on the heater for inside the house.
If the floor heat was installed properly than it should have a temperture manifold or adjustable thermostat for seperate heating.
You need to find the thermostat or manifold for the garage heat and set it at what ever temp you want the garage to stay at.
Then you can change the A B C knob to a higher setting A is cold B is warm ac is hot. So Increase your temp setting on the heater and this will increase your house water temp for hotter showers and faucet temps. However, they recommend not setting the temp above 120 degrees to prevent severe burns.
If you have a newer home increasing the Hot water heater temp setting may not change the temp at the shower or faucets if you have scald guard faucets installed in the house. This will require adjusting the scald guard valves on each faucet.
I recommend using a candy thermometer or digital thermometer to check the faucet and shower Temp prior to using them and make sure that you inform everyone in the house after you change the temp so that no one gets scalded.
I hope this answers you question, feel free to contact me if you need more help!

Installing a Mixer Shower from a Combi Boiler.


hi there, your boiler will perfectly match the mira excel ( a great choice i might add) a 24cdi will give about 9.8 litres a minute flow rate hot water.
The mira excel is suitable for any plumbing set up and there installation instruction are very well laid out & their helpline is fantastic.
The hot water will fluctuate accordingly to the time of year as the cold water temp coming into the property will vary. but the boiler will modulate to compensate.So in brief in the summer you will notice it hotter than you would in the winter, this has nothing to do with the boiler just the incoming temp of the cold water.
