I suspect that the hot water flowing through the fixture is expanding one or more pieces involved at the swing point making the joint too tight to allow movement; I know of no way to fix this except to replace the faucet.

Shower temperature fluctuating and will not stabilise


You haven't provided much information to help narrow down the source of the problem.

Is the flow of both hot and cold water flowing freely? Are the water lines not clogged internally with corrosion or residue? Is it possible that the water is being diverted such as in an apartment building or to an outside spigot (sprinkler system) or kitchen faucets (dishwasher)?
Is your water heater temperature setting correct and is it supplying sufficient hot water flow to the shower?
Do you have a temperature balance cartridge in your shower faucet? If yes, it could possibly be faulty.

Why does moentrol bath valve give hot water pointed to "C" and vice versa?


Easy one.
Feel the pipes. The pipe on the right should be cold. If the pipes are correct, turn the cartridge 180 degrees.

Every morning there is 3"


Hello,

THats a bit tricky determining which water valve it is...while the one way to be sure would be a process of elemenation the cold water valve is most likely going to be the one. A fairly easy way to determine which one is,is turn off just the hot water tap and cold water tap seperatly over the course of a couple days and see when either is off if it still has water in the drum...meaning if with the cold water faucet off does it still have water in the morning and vice versa for when hot faucet is off

so with the cold faucet off no water in tub from overnight its the cold water valve
if no water in tub when hot is off its the hot

Water takes 30 sec to cover 10m from heater to tap

What type of faucet do you have?
1/2" pipe has inside diameter of .54" and holds 1.2 gallons per 100 feet
10 meters is 32 feet and holds .4 gallons
Average faucet puts out 2 gallons per minute, so 30 seconds you should get 1 gallon of water.
Put a bucket under faucet and check amount of water flow.

Assuming you draw just hot water from the faucet, then 30 seconds is slow for receiving hot water.
If you have single-handle faucet and raise handle straight up in middle, then you are drawing half hot and half cold, so it would take 30 seconds for hot to arrive.

If hot water is slow, the problem might be crossover.

or low water pressure due to clog in water line

Other problems could include clogged water filter, clogged water softener, defective pressure valve, and low water pressure.
