Question about Delta Home
We just bought a brand new Riobel single hole faucet for the bathroom. Hot water is perfect. Cold water starts a bit cool/warm, then continues to get hotter and hotter.
We now just got a second one, and the same problem exists.
We have tried reversing/changing the pipes, but still the same problem.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

After some additional experimenting, contrary to information I was previously able to gather, I discovered that the white plastic retainer doesn't (in this type of Moen faucet) actually screw off but rather is held in place by a spring clip inserted from the rear of the retainer (toward the wall side of the basing). Simply sticking a small screwdriver in the opening (approx. 45 degrees downward) and tipping the screwdriver toward the front of the faucet, snaps the spring clip out through the opening.
The plastic retainer than lifts off. Note: the flat sides on the retainer suggest that a wrench will be needed but such is not the case.

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

its the mixing slide in there its stuck u can take it apart at the handle it pulls out shake it if it doesnt move its bad. what happens is over time sediment gets in there and seazes it up. if you take it apart and its not stuck then its ur mixing valve on your boiler is bad good luck

Not sure where to find the diagram, but what type of faucet is it and where is it leaking? It it's a single lever, remove the hot/cold indicator to uncover an allen set screw. Loosen it and remove the lever, then the outer bushing nut. Now you'll have access to the interior parts around the cartridge (make sure you turn the water off to the supply lines before proceeding further). If it's the two handle type, remove the index buttons from the top of each handle to uncover a screw with either a slotted or phillips head. Remove the screws and remove the handles. You now have access to the valves and seats. If it's a 12-year-old faucet, the o-rings and seats will probably need to be replaced and this will fix your problem. If it's a single lever type, you'll need to replace the seats and springs and it will probably solve the problem.
