Http://www.plumbingspecialties.com/downloads/PPfistertoSpeak.pdf......this website offers several blow up diagrams of the mixometer. More than likely it is the packing and all you have to do is tighten the packing nut. You can do this by removing the handle and tightening the nut below it. You may have to remove the escuteon to gain access but the blow up should help you. If you have any questions just ask.

Thx

Write down the type and model of faucet you have. Most hardware stores have rebuild kits for faucets.( washers, rubber o-rings and or gaskets) You will have to turn your water off and do some minor repairs.
The kits come with step by step directions.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.
