Single handle balances cold & hot. First cold then hot at full counterclockwise rotation. Only a trickle of cold coming through but hot side works fine. Appears to be a ball valve. What could the problem be?

There could be dirt in the cartridge or the integral cold side shut off is not fully open. the integral shut off has a slot for a screw driver. the slot is to face the same direction as the pipe coming into it to be open and straight up and down to be off.

Check under the sink at the valves that the hot and cold water lines are connected to. See if the hot water one is turned on all the way.

it is likely required. many new faucets have what's called a pressure balance valve that helps prevent scalding by lowering the pressure of hot when the cold pressure drops (due to a toilet flush or other water being run). Because you have pressure to only one side, that can cause the valve not to provide the necessary volume.

Moen and all shower valve manufacturers follow american federal guidelines. Hold the unit in your hand with the handle facing you - the left side is the hot water inlet and the right side is the cold water inlet.

Replace valve canister- no construction- just remove after taking time to shut off water- a few screws and the job takes 15 minutes. I take for granted you have good water hot/cold to the fixture. This fix will cure most temperature balance problems.
The single lever system is a EZ care system. Note the canister can malfunction faster when exposed to untreated hard water.

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.

Hot and cold water trickles from faucet--seems nearly clogged.


The debre from turning off the valves comes through the lines and clogs up,usually the aireator,the screen at the end of the faucet. Take aireator off ,,colena and reassemble. If that does not work,disconnect the  lines at the shurtoff agaoun and look for hte obstructions for the aireator back to the shurtoffs.

Not enough hot water, has to do with a shower valve


Hello, first if any water supply hot or cold is turned off, you will experience trickling as you mention. You must have both cold and hot in order to adjust the temperature on your valve. if you had a plumber intall this unit you should ask him to adjust it. Otherwise here is how:
Rotate the handle counterclockwise to stop and let water run till cold water is purged, check
temperature. Rotate handle to off, remove handle parts (see Disassembly in your manual) and temperature limit stop, rotate clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase maximum hot water temperature, reinstall temperature limit stop and handle (TIP: Do not screw handle in until desired maximum temperature is achieved) Repeat steps until desired maximum
temperature is achieved
