HELLO- That is correct it is only designed to turn one way counter clockwise. There is a control catrige located inside,you will have to adjust it so it makes it to hot water inlet!

When the builder installed the single handle shower faucet in one of my spare bathrooms, the handle will go from off to the middle (warm), but will not turn any farther towards hot... how can I fix this,...


With some installations there is a setting screw to prevent the tap going all the way hot in an effort to prevent scalding to the elderly or children while in the tub/shower. You may have to take off the handle, and ring to check and see if this is the case, if so, a small adjustment to the screw inside will allow you to go beyond the current setting.

Please let me know if this helps and include feedback.

I just installed abrand new single handle delta shower faucet and the water does not get hot enough.


Many single-handle shower mixers have a hot limit, usually limiting the throw of the handle. You could go to the mfg's website (www.deltafaucet.com) & find instructions for adjusting it. Or, if you're handy, you could take off the handle & have a look; it shouldn't be too hard to see what's stopping the handle from turning more towards the hot side. Make changes in small increments & remember where you started.

Getting hot water when shower valve is first opened.


If I understand correctly, you have single handled shower faucet.
Normally there is a wait for hot water to arrive at faucet.
But now hot water is already at shower faucet.

Single handled faucets have a mixing area inside valve where hot and cold come together before going into sink.
This mixing valve can have crossover where the hot and cold can pass through to each other even when faucet handle is off. When single handle faucets get old, this can happen.
How it happens:
For example another faucet is turned on inside house, and pressure differential between hot and cold causes hot water at shower handle to pass through mixing area and into cold water line.
So if another faucet has been run, then that lets hot flow to faulty single handled shower faucet.
To confirm this is the problem: turn on other faucet and put ear against shower faucet to listen for moving water.
This condition may also signal there is a water leak.
The problem is not harmful, but will draw cold water into water heater each time, and is energy wasteful.
Replace faucet or have plumber repair problem.

I turn it all the way towards the hot but my water will only get luke warm. i try tried to fix it myself but only got as far as unscrewing the base.... Can you tell me what to do?


Take handle off of shower faucet and it will have a dial to remove and adjust to proper flow. Just remember where it is at. Remove it and move it about 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clocwise and reinstall to increase to hotter temp.
