Hot water pressure is weak. Shower head isn't clogged. Cold water pressure is good. How do I increase the hot water pressure?


Is the hot water pressure good at other fixtures in the house? I'm guessing your newer valves have a scolding adjustment that is set very low. Check the instructions that came with the valve assembly.

The shower only runs hot water no matter where the handle is turned...even on the cold setting.


You need to replace the mixing valve. It's not terribly hard to do, if you have some tools and, if the valve is not stuck in the fixture. Here's a video on how to replace it. Take note of how the tabs on the valve are positioned so you can put it in the same way it came out. If cold and hot water are reversed, you need to take valve back out and rotate 180 deg. and put back in:

This is assuming you have hot water elsewhere in the house and not ot the shower. Check to make sure you have hot water at other faucets.

All hooked up dobble cked but water only trickles so ample supply


Make sure the hot water is turned back on. Pressure balancing valves won't work if both cold and hot water is not on. Pull shower head off and test to see how it flows out of the shower arm. If good, clear out shower head. Whenever water is turned off for a time, and then turned back on, restricting shower heads and aerators usually get clogged. In the future, always open up a tub spout before turning water back on. This releases the air and other debris most effectively before testing other fixtures in the house.

SINGLE VALVE SHOWER FAUCET TURN ON TO GET HOT WATER ONLY GETTING WARM WATER LUKE THE OTHER TUB AND SINK FAUCET COME OUT HOT HELP PLEASE


I can think of a few possibilities. 1) Something is blocking the hot water in to the mixing valve. Fixing this would probably mean cutting out the valve (then redoing the water lines with a new valve (possible option)).

2) The hot water line is losing too much heat going to this second faucet. (If the two tubs are on different floors this is more common. Many places are plumbed with one line with Ts to all fixtures.) Insulating the water lines might help; alternatively an point of use water heater would help.

3) The hot water and the cold water in are reversed. (Test by leaving the water on full cold and full hot for a few minutes each.) If you get full hot when it should be cold, valves with a cartridge are easy to fix. Open the valve assembly, remove the cartridge and reinsert it after turning it around (side closest to you when you removed it goes in first). Otherwise, the incoming plumbing needs to be redone at the point where the cold and hot lines come into the shower.

I hope this helps.

Replace valve canister- no construction- just remove after taking time to shut off water- a few screws and the job takes 15 minutes. I take for granted you have good water hot/cold to the fixture. This fix will cure most temperature balance problems.
The single lever system is a EZ care system. Note the canister can malfunction faster when exposed to untreated hard water.

Only warm water from the tub/shower


You can cap the lines at the tub faucet to rule out tub faucet. It maybe mixing there.

Faucet may be bad also the safety stop will alow you to change water temp it can be tricky to adjust water temp.

Two possibilities come to mind. 1. The shut off valve (in the wall under the fixture) is almost closed. 2. Trash in the valve assembly or a broken seal. Turn off the water at the shut off valve and remove the handle and stem from the fixture. Clean and replace anything broken. You could even open the shut off valve for a second to flush any junk out of the fixture. Reassemble, turn water back on, and test. This should solve your problem.

I get hot water but no cold water from my moen one hand tub fixture.


pretty sure that model has shut-off's/stop's.they are on either side of the center of faucet,they take a slotted screw-driver.check that,and the balancing spool could be clogged,if the stop's are open check the cartridge real good,as well as the faucet body for any debris. if you end up pulling the cartridge flush out the valve body to prove flow from both hot,and cold.

No cold water from bathtub fixture/Shower won't engage


If you put on the cold and Nothing at all comes out, check the water supply valve to the tub. If it comes out alittle ...the washer probiblly came off and is stuck you will have to remove the valve ,but 1st check that the handle is not stripped ,and that is actually moving the valve to the open position Turn the handle and see if the handle backs out ,like its trying to open.
Please rember to leave me some positive feedback if Ive been Helpful! Thanks !
