Question about Delta & Single Handle Shower Faucet

1 Answer

I believe I have a delta monitor shower faucet. I am wondering why the hot water pressure is less than the cold water pressure. Also I am wondering what size hex head I need to remove the lever so I can look at the inner parts. Thanks

Are you wanting to change/switch the hot and cold range of the shower or the temperature max and min? As for the range, the Monitor pressure balance valve may be having build up or problems. This valve controls the mixture of hot and cold water. To fix this, you will need to turn off the water supply, take the pipes apart and clean out the valve (I would recommend a professional). As for the max and min, you may just need to check the water heater pressure in your house. It may not be the faucet at all.

I have a Delta scald guard shower faucet (older model). The cold water pressure is good but as a turn to hot the pressure drops to a drizzle. There are 2 other sinks and another shower upstairs and there...


It is more that likely the valve in the stem of your fixture, I'm assuming this is a single handle faucet. If you can replace the valve, you will cure your problem. I am giving you a link to how to adjust the hot water temp.

Good afternoon, We have a 25yr old delta shower faucet and head. both work wonderful but the water is not all that hot- our new hotwater tank is set at 130 degrees. If i need to change the mix do i do it...


You don't change the setting on the faucet or behind the shower wall. You change the mix in the hot water heater itself. New hot water heaters are set at a relatively lower hot-water-setting for liability purposes. To achieve a hotter mix, take the cover plate off the hot water heater. You will see a dial setting that allows you to turn up the heat. Depending on what type of water heater you have, there might be two cover plates (lower and upper). If so, you'll need to adjust both of these.

Delta 13022 - Hot water out of the shower is much cooloer than out of the sink faucet. How is the mix of hot & cold controlled?


The Delta shower has a rotational limit stop designed so that when another fixture is activated, such as a toilet or dishwaser, the water does not go to extreme hot or cold. The reason for this is that the Delta shower unit is not pressure balanced or does not contain an anti scald device. The pdf document below will show how to adjust the water tempature if you feel it is too cold. Please use caution as it is probably set the way it is to prevent scalding.

It takes a 1/8" allen wrench to remove handle. To increase hot water flow remove plastic dial that sets temperature. It is right behind handle and slides off stem for easy adjustment.

Remove indicator and replace about 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clock wise to increase to hotter temperature.

Water is not very hot.


First try adjusting the pressure balancing gear located right behind the handle. If you still do not have hot water I suggest to replace the cartridge.

My shower has a delta monitor single faucet. And the flow has diminished so much that I am only getting few drops. The house has a lot of water pressure. What can I do?


Sounds like you have lost pressure on one side of the valve. ( either hot or cold ) Or the cartridge has gone bad. If you have hard water if probably is the cartridge. There are a couple of different series for your style of faucet.

The reason why you only get a few drops is the cartridge is pressure balancing. It is a safety device which prevents scalding if one side of the supply shuts down.

Please rate this response and Good Luck, Phil
