Question about Delta & Single Handle Shower Faucet

1 Answer

When turning on the hot water on dedicated hot water faucets, the water is almost scalding. However, when turning on the shower and tub that has only one faucet handle (mixes cold and hot) and put the handle to the hottest temperature, the water is only luke warm. How can we modify to get more hot water?

Pull apart the front of the valve and there is a limiter that is set to limit hte hot water, you need to adjust that limiter. I find many valves are shipped with teh setting too cold.

Temperature regulating faucet, aka anti-scald, are fast becomring a requirement under local building codes making it, technically speaking, a building code violation to alter the faucets function (assuming someone reported it the loccal buildings dept. That said the function of the anti-scald faucet cannot be altered. You should contact whomever installed the faucet to come back and adjust it so the temperature is more suited to your needs.

Only warm water from the tub/shower


You can cap the lines at the tub faucet to rule out tub faucet. It maybe mixing there.

No cold water


Anti Scald Valves have an adjustment under the handle (remove handle) to allow so much hot water in no matter how far handle is turned. Its possible that the adjustment is set to allow only hot water in, this of course defeats the purpose of anti-scalding. Check to see if you can adjust this back. Good Luck have a Great Day. Please give a 4 THUMBS UP if this free answer was of any help.

No cold water


Behind the handle there is a dial to adjust water temp cold and hot you can remove it and replace it a 1/4 turn til you can get both cold and hot. It is a anti scald it may have been put in wrong.

Make sure the cold water line is not blocked coming to valve and is open .

You may have to disassymble the faucet to see if there is something that is stuck in there or that the assymbly internally is stuck in the closed position.

SHOWER HOT WATER SCALDING


hi as you are probably aware ,when the toilet is flushed the water pressure to the shower is reduced so you get hot/scalding water unfortunatly there is NO easy solution you could put a needle valve in the supply to the toilet and with trial and error by turning the valve down reach a compromise between the time it takes to fill the flushing tank and the shower temp the only real solution is to feed the toilet and shower off independent supplies but in most houses this is impractical if not impossible silk090
