Sounds like you hooked up the the supply lines backwards .

On single handle shower valves, designed to let cold water first and turn handle farther to mix hot water to desired setting. If hot water turned on first, possibility of getting scalded. If seperate hot/cold handles for shower, shower valve needs work.

First make sure that the hot and cold supply lines (the plumbing) aren't backwards (hot should be on the left as you are facing the faucet) or that someone accidentally ran two hot lines. For the problem to be in the faucet itself you would have to have a single handle faucet. If this is the case the control valve is broken and should be replaced. Three handle Left= Hot Water Flow. Right= Cold Water Flow Center= Controls whether the water comes out the shower head or tub faucet. Two handle Left= Hot Water Flow Right= Cold Water Flow (Diverter Valve is elsewhere if it's a tub/shower) Single handle One handle controls both water pressure and temperature

First off - be on the outside of the shower and screw with it clockwise and anticlockwise and see what happens. Works every time.

It's called water-hammer. I vibration from the water pressure. A snub-end pipe can be added to devert the vibration.

Approx. 15 to 20 litres are used in a single shower

Is there a leak behind the wall? Does your hot water system have a re-circulation system in it? Is the shower very close to the hot water heater? All could be factors that keep the handle and water warm.

Turn the water off to the faucet. Remove the handle. The top of the faucet should unscrew to get to the ball valve. Replace the valve and gaskets then reassemble the faucet.

Generally, the handle needs to be removed either by popping a single tab off the center of the handle, or removing a set screw from the side. Once the handle is removed, there will be a plastic ring through which the center post connects the handle to the valve. This black ring and be pulled out, and rotated to raise or lower the maximum temperature setting.

You have a cross connection on a faucet somewhere in the house. That means the hot is overriding the cold because of a malfunctioning faucet. Usually happens at the tub/shower diverter if it is a single handle.

Remove the handle, turn off the water with a wrench and reatache the handle in the correct position. Good Luck

If this is a shower handle, this is a common mistake installers make. Just remove the handle, and rotate the pin that the handle connects to by 180 degrees. This will reverse the mixing cartridge. If this is a sink, then your water supply lines are reversed. Just shut the water off, and switch the lines supplying water under the sink.

The shower head possibly has mineral deposits restricting the flow

Shower, Shower heads can usually allow anywhere between 2.5 and 5 gallons of water a minute. Toilets can use this volume in a single flush. As most showers last longer than one minute the shower volume is considerably higher.

Water entering the shower has no sperm. Water leaving the shower might, depending on who was there last.

In a single handle faucet the mechanical principle is a ball valve one. This is where the ball valve acts to cut off whichever type of water is not wanted so the correct water comes out.

In modern single piece shower controls, the system can break an o-ring or hard water can cause the cold supply line to become clogged at the smallest juncture.

Under the handle (usually held on by a set screw) are two color coded interlocking washers that slide off (after removing the screw holding them together) to adjust the cold and hot water ratio.

Water source+ pipes + pump = active shower.

Some shower fixtures have a hot water adjustment on them so that you can set the water temp lower. take off the handle and look at the assembly. Do you see a small plastic sleeve that can be turned? If so turn it to the left and see if that changes the water temp.

For Moen, there is a part called a "posi temp" and this can be replaced to manage the hot water. You may need a specialized tool called a puller. There is an amusing You Tube with Steven Lavmoniere that shows the process to do this.Maybe. If it is a Moen or other type of single handle shower valve, try changing the cartridge first. If this doesn't work, you need a new shower valve.ANS2 - Shower valves of all types will clog up with any bits of sediment or rust in the system. This is very common. Take the valve apart and check carefully inside.

The handle. The handle attaches to the stem. The stem is part of the valve. Single handle or quarter turn faucets, the stem is in a cartridge. That should cover it. The handle on a faucet does not have a special name, it is just a handle. ________________________________ It's called a spigot.

The shower water filter's location varies on what type of shower head it is. It is located within the shower head, or it can be a separate device that is attached to the shower head. It is usually located just before where the water comes out of the shower head.

Could be bad washers and they need to be replaced or something broke in the handle of the faucet.
