The water pressure is too low, turn the stop **** up a quarter turn at a time until the temperature becomes adjustable as before.

I turned up my hot water heater up to 135 on the top should the bottom be lower setting


Most likely the bottom element is burned out.

To check, turn the top element down and the bottom way up, you might hear it heating the water, you might. Or turn the top element way down with the bottom up to 135 and wait for about 1/2 hour and take a shower. Did you run out of hot water?

Do you have a 50-55 gal hot water heater or larger? If not you need to turn the bottom element up to 135.

If you are taking really long showers you will run out of hot water with any electric water heater.

Install a low flow showerhead.

Water leak behind shower wall when i turn on hot and cold water


If it only happens when you turn the water to the shower on, it must be a problem with the piping after the valve. Take the shower arm out and wrap it with Teflon, it could be as simple as leaking threads. It could also be a leaking/poorly soldered copper fitting, or even a defect in the enclosure itself.

I have two vanities and a shower in the bathroom. We only get hot water to the sinks when we turn on the shower to hot. Even if we turn off the shower we will still get hot water for a while. It just seems...


Check the water supply lines to the shower at the faucet handles. If the fitting for the hot water line connected to the handle is loose, it can twist and kink off the water supply further down the line when you turn the faucet handle. I'm not exactly sure how this could be relevant otherwise, but under normal design circumstances this type of scenario with your shower wouldn't matter for other faucets.

Hello, I am putting in a grohe 35016 rough in valve. My shower has cold/hot 1/2" pex line coming in and i need to have one line going up into the ceiling for a rain shower head and another line going...


Hook the cold line up to right side and hot to left. Run line to wall shower off the top and use two 90 degree elbows with a short length of pipe turned slightly to the side of the line to wall shower. Run pipe up to ceiling height then 90 over and down to location you want forrain shower head. Hope I made this clear as I know sometimes I don't explain things well. Thank you.

Replaced a moen cartidge and now the water is not hot in shower


make sure when you turn on the hot and cold shut off valves all the way and turn the moen on after that. Some times I would get that problem if I turned one(either hot or cold) off then tried the shower.
