The protective finish has worn off of the brass drain assembly and there is alot of chemicals in your water. Only thing to suggest is a water softner for your home.

Remove handle and check temperature adjustment it maybe out. Remove handle and slide little adjustment gear out and move it a 1/4 turn and reinstall it to see if any difference occurs. If it is not set right you want be able to turn water off and possibly cartridge maybe be bad. With it being brand new and it should work out of the box take it back if no simple fixes will work. You want the best and not have to work on something you just bought anyway. Something may have been left off the cartridge maybe seat bad or o ring.

Shower not getting enough flow of water on hot possition cold flow normal! ..what could be the problem?? since all other are working just fine..

There is a safety limiter in the shower control. This essentially limits how far towards hot you can set the control. Yours sounds too low.

What you do is tape the drain, so you do not loose any small pieces, remove the lever handle, usually an allen, and then you can see what is limiting movement. Ususally a gear affair.

Scribe with a small scratcher, the current position, and Reposition it some in the direction you would thing gives more hot water...and test the hot temprature.... either you will have more or less, and then adjust accordingly.

Delta shower faucet with a single handle lose

You need a faucet handle puller, you can get these at most home center and hardware/plumbing stores.
Once you get the handle and cover off you might just find that the control was never fully mounted.

When turning on the shower faucet there is no hot water.

Can you remove handle , behind handle there should be a dial to move to increase hot or cold supply.

Remember where you start and remove it and replace a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise, just put handle on try it and see if it changes and adjust accordingly.

A single handle delta shower control lets water drip through shower head when shut do I fix it ?

Make sure the drip is continuous because the shower head will drip for a few minutes until it empties out. Replace the cartridge or washer kit if it keeps dripping.

My hot water in the shower is not as hot as from the sink right next to it. I know you can adjust the flow of hot and cold in a single faucet arrangement and open the shower handle and see two brass or...

Looking in at the screws from the shower side, first, check to see if you can feel any threads sticking out from either adjuster. Try to set them the same. Counter clockwise will give you more water from the pipe you adjust. If either of your pipes are smaller or filled with more corrosion than the sink pipes, you will have impared flow. If adjusting the valve doesn't give you the desired temperature, if you have the ball type valve, the seals need to be replaced. If you have the cartridge type valve, the cartridge needs to be replaced.

The device which directs the water up or down is called the diverter. Your diverter is not fully up or fully down. Rather forcefully push and pull the diverter a few times and your problem may be solved. good luck.
