The flapper at the bottom is leaking and needs replacing. Water is leaking out and causing the tank to fill when the level drops. It sounds like a flush, but it is actually the tank filling.

Refer to instructions that came with valve body, orgo on line and read them
CONTINUOUS FLUSHING:1.The Regulating Screw (061024A, item #4) may be turned RIGHT (clockwise) TOO FAR. Adjust by slowly turning the Regulating Screw LEFT (counter- clockwise) (except -6, -48, -42, -19 and -05 models which are fixed volume).2.If flush is still continuous, close inlet stop, remove Regulating Screw (061024A, item #4), CLEAN bypass slot in the Screw, REPLACE it in the valve and Adjust slowly for proper flush (except -6, -48, -42, -19 and -05 models which are fixed volume).3.CHECK the relief valve in the Handle Cage (060810A, item #12) and see if it is stuck in the open position or fouled by debris. Replace the Handle Cage(060810A, item #12) if necessary.4.Remove cast cap assembly (see Table 1) and Diaphragm/Guide Assembly (061323A - WC, item #7a or 061324A - UR, item #7b, 061376A - UR,item#7c) and check for contaminants at renewable seat and diaphragm and check for debris in the cap for blockage. Also CHECK that the Diaphragm/Guide slides easily in the Renewable Seat.

Depending upon the type of faucet, there is a retaining screw concealed under the temperature button.

Most modern shower restrictors are permanently fixed and require some prying with a pick or small screwdriver and possibly drilling. Be careful that in removing some of the pressure reducing stuff you do not slip and put a hole in yourself. You don't have to get it all out, just enough to allow full pressure to the head.

Clean hand held the unit is probably clogged . If you have ard water you can soak it vinegar for a couple of hours.

Delta Home | Answered on May 16, 2019

If I am reading this right. You have one single handle that controls the temp and flow in your shower, correct? This being the case and you cannot adjust the HOT down enough with the handle. Then my suggestion would be to turn it down at the water heater. If you remove the access door on the side of the unit. There should be either a dial you can turn with a small flathead screwdriver. Or a switch that selects the desired temp. But take into consideration that this will effect ALL water temp throughout your house. Washing machine, Dishwasher, etc..................
There might be one other thing to investigate as well. Look into the cold water supply side at the water heater. It might not be open all the way. Thereby restricting the cold water flow..........:)
Good luck,

A leak in the line that runs to the shower head

Delta Home | Answered on Mar 05, 2019

Guessing you have hard water. Is there there white crusty stuff around the little holes? If yes, take the head off and put it in a bowl of vinegar for half an hour or buy CLR. Either should soften or dissolve the lime. OR When you take the head off check the little filter screen for dirt. If the water has been off recently, the rush of water gilling the pipes again can stir up any dirt in the pipes. Take the screen out, clean and replace.

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!

not all that familiar with your particular faucet. but in my experience, most plumbers dont put grease on the valves when installing them . the factory just uses enough grease to get the valve in the faucet. if you have extremely hot water and use it . it wont take to long for it to cause this problem.. just an opinion. i cant imagine how the buildings shutoff could have anything to do with your problem.

check the placement of the valve,, it may be 180 degrees out,, also,, try it with the shower head off, it may be clogged
