SOURCE: shower too hot

Hi sallypenn

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question seems to be how to adjust the temperature of a shower valve?

I'm going to assume this is a single handle faucet. Most are adjustable under the handle. This is the responsibility of the installer but sometimes they forget and you can't get them back. Anyway this requires a little mechanical ability and a few tools.
First be sure to turn off the water to the faucet, then remove the handle (allen wrench or small screw driver). Most have a temp. adjustment ring right there. Simply pull out, rotate and replace. With some you have to remove the sleeve or bonnet under the handle to expose the adjustment fitting. Reasemble and turn on. It is not uncommon to have to do this two or three times before the customer is happy with the setting. The adjustment fittings usually don't have tenp. setting numbers to go by so it might take a few tries.

SOURCE: Our Aqualisa power shower lacks water pressure power

more than likely you have some debris near the shower head

take an adjustible wrench( crescent or channel lock
wrap a rag around the eustaceon( chrome tube coming out of shower wall srap around tube to protect the chrome hold it firmly with vicegrips or channel locks, take adjustible wrench or chanel locks and remove the chrome nut holding the shower head on to the eustaceon(turn counter cockwise be careful not to drop the tools that wil damage the tile or fiberglass

after removing showerhead

turn on shower to force and debris out and place shwoer head into stream of water to clean out any deposits the head may have some type of screen to strain the water

this should work if the flow has not incresed then there is a need to adjust the flow valve at the control

to reinstall the shower head reverse procedure

if you have any teflon tape wrap it around the threaded portion of the eustaceon

good luck

hoe this works

SOURCE: low water pressure in grohe hand held. Is there a

1 Check if the holes in the hand held shower are not clogged with scum which generally happens over prolonged use. Clean them with a pin. 2 If this does not help, then check the the pipe connecting the shower to the water outlet. It should be clean and not clogged with foreign material which restricts the flow of water. 3 It still it does not help then you may have to fix a booster pump or raise the level of the water reservoir.

Little used shower system (rain head, hand held and body nozzles) now has very reduced pressure. was fine 6 months ago when last used.


Pull it apart and see if the flow restrictor is plugged in the water inlet to the shower head.

Low water pressure from my shower.


You probably have a water flow reducer in the shower head. It is a rubber disk with a few holes in it. Just remove it and put the shower head back on. They are installed at the factory to save our environment. (Mine are all removed)

How do you change the filter to a culligan water softener


Here are instruction to remove the filter housing. This is from my tips posting. Culligan filter housings are just Pentek/Pentair water filter housings and these tips apply to virtually any filter housing.

Frequently whole house filters can be very difficult to remove. The canisters become almost impossible to loosen, even after pressing the pressure relief valve and using a housing wrench. The most common reasons for this are the housing was put back on with the housing wrench, debris in the housing threads and a bad pressure relief valve.

How to remove a stuck filter housing.
1. Turn off the incoming water.
2. By-Pass the Softener
3. Go to the nearest cold water faucet, open it and let the water run until pressure drops significantly.
4. Turn the water off at outlet of filter (If housing has shutoff on top off head, turn this off now).
5. Press and hold the pressure relief button to relieve pressure further.
6. Use filter wrench to unscrew housing (If it still won't loosen repeat steps 2-5).
7. After removing, clean housing thoroughly, make sure threads are clean on filter bowl and housing head. Lubricate threads of housing and head with plumbers faucet lube or silicone.
8. Clean and lubricate the O-Ring (replace the O-ring every couple years or if housing leaks after screwing back on). It helps to flip the O-Ring over a couple times per year.
9. Replace the cartridge filter and screw the housing back on.
10. Turn the incoming water on slowly while holding the pressure relief button down until all air is purged.
11. Open outlet and let water run to cold water faucet until all air is purged.
12. Put softener back in service.

IMPORTANT! Only tighten the filter housing by HAND!
NEVER use the housing wrench to tighten the housing.

I hope these tips help you with the angst of removing stubborn filter housings.

Shower heads usuasly have a plastic reducer in them and they tend to block up with deposits. You can remove it and use the shower head without which will increase water pressure.the reducer is located by unscrewing the head . It's a circular coin size plastic and are normally either red or black in colour.

Have a shower only no tub. replaced both the hot and cold stems because shower was dripping and water pressure was low. Thought if I replaced the water pressure would return. Tightened the top nut before...


Take the shower head off and see if the pressure is better or the same. If it is the same then you will need too look up-stream for blockage in the water lines. If it is better then replace or clean out the holes in the shower head. It may also have a filter screen before the shower head.

When lever on tub spout is pulled up for shower use some hot water still comes out of the tub spout...reducing water pressure and temperature of water coming out of the shower head... Tub spout does NOT...


2 things can be happing here depending on the age of the tub spout. If the spout is more than 5 years old, you may need to replace it. if not that old then you may have a screen filter blockage in the shower head itself. remove the shower head from the shower neck and see if there is anything in the filter. while you have the head removed, try the tub spout again and see if problem continues. this should guide you in the next step to either replace the tub spout or just clean the shower head screen filter. Hope this helps.

How do I change the filer in my Culligan unit?


Turn the water off IN & OUT, (If this is a Culligan pre-filter it may have the shutoff valve on top), Press the red pressure relief button and hold it down for several seconds. Use the wrench provide and unscrew housing. Clean out the housing, lubricate the o-ring with silicone lube, replace filter and housing. Only tighten the housing by hand. Turn incoming water back on. It helps to hold the pressure relief button down after turning water back on to purge the air.

The shower head was in place for over a year. Then when my daughter was taking a shower the whole ''T'' head flew off at her. I've tried to reinstall a couple of different times but it keeps flying off...


just replace your shower arm that is what the shower head is connected to make sure you use teflon tape around the threads on each end of the shower arm that should do the trick

No water from Culligan Aquaclear AC30 after replacing filters


Try reducing the pressure to 7-10 PSI empty then no more than 35 PSI when the tank is full. This should solve the problem.
