Yes - This is an easy (though not widely known) diy fix! Remove the cover of the faucet handle (may pop off if crystal type or use a screwdriver to remove the screws) inside there is a scald guard safety mechanism - using a flathead screwdriver, turn the guard some the left. There should be a guide so that you do not turn the water up too hot. If there is not, you may need to consult a plumber or supplier in order to adjust the hot to a moderate temperature.

Hope this helps! ;)

Most all shower valve's these days have anti-scald protection. There are 2 ways that this protection is accomplished; temperature control device or a pressure balance device.
If your's has a pressure balance device, both cold and hot water lines that supply your shower valve must be fully opened. If you only turned on one, water will not flow from the shower valve.

If both hot and cold supplies are fully opened and you soldered copper pipe to the shower valve, it is possible that excess soldered is was sucked into the valve and could be obstructing the valve's outlet.

SOURCE: water comes from both the shower head and bath tub

if it is standard shower where you pull the knob up when water is running. the pull knob lifts a flap to shut off water to bottom faucet it proably has some buildup on the flap clean well with some clr or other calcium cleaner like it so the flap gets a clean seal on downspout

sometimes check the faucet screws they come loose or if they are old you might want to replace the whole diverter, take them to lowes or home depot and have them guys in the plumbing department hook you up. trust me you are opening a can of worms with rubber valve seats just get new ones. Make sure before pulling you cut off water supply to them.

SOURCE: I bought a tub/shower valve

it sounds like the tub filler itself. When you pull the knob up it's supposed to divert the water to the shower, if it's coming out both, I'd look at that piece, inexpensive and easy to replace

these valves can be adjusted by removing the handle and adjusting the white gear that regulates the hot and cold that come out, try going more to one way if it gets colder then go the other way.

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.

Faucet may be bad also the safety stop will alow you to change water temp it can be tricky to adjust water temp.

Delta T13090 faucet shower head working at the same time.


The only possible explaination is that the water is finding it easier to go up than down. Water is lazy, just like me. ;)

Use an allen key to remove the tub spout. It's underneath and awkward. Once the allen key is loose, the spout just slides off. Try running the water. This may solve your problem and all you'll need is a new tub spout. If not.....

Turn the water off to the house.

Use an allen key to remove the handle.

Use a phillips to remove the trim plate (2 screws). Cut the silicone around the trim if it's there (which, in a proper installation it shouldn't be, but...)

Unscrew the nut (usually chrome) holding the cartridge into the brass body of the valve. The cartridge pulls straight out. Check for restriction in the ports of the cartridge itself. Check for restriction in the line going down to the tub spout. If you can't find anything, replace the cartridge.

Reassemble & Enjoy!

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.

American Standard Cadet 2-handle tub & shower set-Model#3275 - low pressure output


When you installed the new tub faucet you probably turned off the water to that faucet of even the whole house. IF IT IS AN OLDER HOUSE, TURNING THE WATER OFF AND BACK ON CAN LOOSEN SOME DEBRIS IN THE WATER LINES THAT CAN FIND THEIR WAY TO YOUR NEW FAUCET. If there is a screen at the end of the water outlet it can be clogged with gunk. Uncrew the screen on the water outlet and clean. You may also want to flush out the hot and cold outlets by turning the water off, removing the cartigages and slowly let water flush them out. Then reassemble. Also when you have the tub handles out you can turn the hot and cold supply valves off and on a few times to loosen more debris if it exsists........Joe
