Remove handle to gain access to anti scald valve you pull it out and turn it a 1/4 turn and reinsert back in and put handle on turn on and check it out.

Just move it a little at a time till it's right try counter clock wise.

before you start mark where you start from .

I just installed a new shower with no tub. I have water to my delta fixture but no water out the head. I used shark bite connectors and did not solder the fittings


Are your walls still open? I assume they are as you'd be unlikely to close them up without having had tested your water flow. Here is what I would do.
1.) use the orange plastic C shaped release tool to depress the white plastic ring on the shark bite fitting that you have on the delta side of the Delta-ShowerHead connection.
2.) Carefully and slowly turn water on and see if water is exiting the fixture where you expect it to.

IF yes, water is coming out of the delta fixture then you know the flow problem is somewhere between the delta fixture and your shower head.
IF no, water is not coming out the delta fixture then you need to re-access how you connected the supply lines to the delta fixture.

Hot water stops flowing intermittently from tub faucet


Newer tub faucets have a anti-scald feature. It normally looks like a piece of plastic dial just above or below The tub handle. It could be that your water set too hott and he scald valve shuts off the hot water only

I recently had a Glacier Bay single handle shower faucet installed. The hot water is barely lukewarm. What is the problem?


Inside the handle assembly there is an adjustment for the anti-scald feature. If the installer left you the owners manual,it should have instructions how to adjust it. If not, have the installer come back to adjust it.

My taps are new. When the handle is turned full hot , the water is only tepid. I think the anti scald feature is letting too much cold water pass. Please advise


there is a splined adjustment just under the handle of the 3175.

you need to remove the handle, usually held on with an allen screw
once you remove the handle, there will be a black "stop" held on with a screw, remove that, but remember its position.

once that is off you can adjust the temperature. there will be 2 white pieces, one has splines, you can move this counter clockwise one or two notches at a time untill you reach your desired termp.
be careful not to go too much, even though these are an anti scald valve, you are letting more hot water through it.

How do you adjust temp. water luke warm? This is a single handle. Hot water set at 145.


These type faucets have anti scald dial setting that if you remove the handle you can gain access to it.
Just remove handle and mark or remember where it is and pull it out and reinsert it about 1/4 turn counter clockwise.

It has got marks on it and looks like a little gear.

Not enough hot water in the shower even if I turn the handle all


Your valve has an anti-scald feature which automatically adjusts the water temp if cold water is diverted to another location, e.g., a flushed toilet, washing machine filling, etc. Most valves have an adjustment screw to allow you to set the temp. Since each manufacturer is different you'll need the manual or contact the manufacturers support. BTW, these anti-scald valves are being added to building codes in many parts of the U.S.

Water temperature varies while useing the hot water during a normal shower. jg


Try this before replacing the shower diverter valve.

If this problem is isolated to the shower only, then I would suggest that the shower diverter valve is equipped with an "Anti-scald" safety feature that can not be adjusted, however the temperature regulator/thermostat on the water heater can be adjusted to a lower temperature so as to not activate the the "Anti-scald".
