SOURCE: shower mixer taps

look for a scald safety screw adjustment. Remove the handle, and it is underneath. this is for safety of young children, and is factory set.

SOURCE: Shower not hot

There is a handle limit stop under the handle. Remove the handle with an allen wrench and you should see a plastic piece with a tab on it fit into the assembly. Remove it and rotate it slightly to allow more travel in the handle and reinsert. You will have to test it to see if it allows enough hot water to mix in. If it is still not warm enough repeat as needed. Once you have the water at a comfortable temperature reinstall the handle and enjoy.

SOURCE: low pressure on hot water taps and showers

Many states building codes require a pressure regulator and expansion tank for hot water heater installation. Check the pressure regulator if you have one as this would only affect the hot water pressure. Adjust or replace. Rap the expansion tank like knocking hard on a door. Hollow sound is good. Dull thud means it needs to be replaced as it is filled with water.

Bradford White 40 gal water heater,works fine, but has started whining when not in "low" setting. Seems to only do it during showers, or when temps drop outside etc. Only lasts a few minutes


it is possibly a high frequence '"water hammer" from a failing tap washer
call a plumber to replace all the tap washers especially the shower hot water tap washer
water hammer is when the water flow is intermittently interrupted ( (normally as banging pipes) but when it is fast it appears as a whistle or squeal

If you have single-handled faucet the faucet cartridge might be bad.
If you have recirculation system, then check valve might be bad.

Cold water pressure poor in shower. Just had Rheem installed.


You might have clog in water lines.
If shower is only place where low pressure exists, then clog is probably at shower valve.
Disassemble valve and see if clog will flush out.
From there, you have to keep moving back along cold water line looking for pipe filled with sediment or elbow that has obstruction.

If pressure problem is bad at every cold tap, but doesn't affect Hot water, then clog is inside Cold line somewhere after water heater connects to cold line.
Buy a pressure gauge that connects to water hose.
Buy adapter that also fits pipe thread.
For example Brady BTG 100.
Test outdoor spigot for baseline pressure.
Open cold tap inside house and see how much pressure drops.
Close cold line and open hot tap and see how much pressure drops.

Next, move pressure gauge along cold water line.
Take apart pipes and inspect for obstruction at elbow or pipes filled with sediment.
Look for any place galvanized pipe connects to copper pipe, since this will be likely place for obstruction because of bi-metal corrosion.

Water changes to hot while showering


it can be that your geyser is not sending enough cold water to the pipes of your shower so you should check the sensitivity of your tap/valve. it happens sometimes that the tap turns as the water comes into contact with it. it can also be that cold water is used by someone else that also uses your geyser's water

Rinnai tankless water heater


where the pipes are laid out it may run along an outer wall and the cold weather is cooling the water before it gets to the shower try to track the pipe from your water heater to your shower and insulate it where it is coldest
