Shower may have an anti-scald shower valve installed. If so, shower valve can be adjusted to desired temperature.

changing a shower valve can be sometimes impossible with out cutting a hole in the wall behind it. If you have a shower valve that is leaking through the valve and out of the shower head when shut off then I recommend trying to find new cartridges or replacement seals for the valve. If you need to replace the shower valve then I would cut a hole in the sheet rock behind the shower valve big enough so you have enough room to replace it. Sometimes if you can't get behind the shower wall and your water pipe isn't galvanized then it might be possible to change the valve through inside the shower but it can be a real struggle and most of the time you will need a wider trim plate. If you don't have much experience in soldering or using pex pipe and fittings then I would save you a headache and call a service plumber.

Some shower valves have integral stops which can be accessed by removing the trim plate. Most shower valves don't have these and the water is shut off by turning off the main valve to the house or apartment.

Though not a plumber, I can say that shower valves are usually made of brass(a very good material). Therefore they are also expensive to replace (50 dollars for the valve, 150 dollars per shower valve if done by a competent plumber). Therefore, when you notice a leak coming from your shower, try to replace the seat washer (usually the hot water side needs to be replaced first). If you still have a leak, it's time to replace the shower valve.

The same height as the normal western shower valves, this is why they are yellow, they can't show because they can't reach the valve.

On older modelsBehind the valve stem sleeve and escutcheon there is usually a packing gland nut which can be tightened with a valve stem socket wrench designed for the make and model of shower control your asking about..

Your water pressure is low. Consequently, when cold water is diverted to another application such as a toilet or a sink, the amount of cold water available at the shower mixing valve decreases as the low pressure is unable to keep up with the shower's demand. This causes a hotter mixture at the shower head. The solution is to either improve the cold water supply to the shower or to replace the shower control valve with a temperature compensating type. Pressure balancing is the cheapest and simply changes the shower temperature according to the pressure in the cold and hot water lines. When the toilet or sink is used, reduced pressure to the shower valve is detected and the valve reduces the hot water pressure, thereby maintaining the temperature. The more sophisticated approach is a thermostatic shower control valve. These are significantly more expensive, but will not reduce the pressure at the shower head (a drawback of the pressure balancing valve). The thermostatic valve would be required when one shower control valve is operating several shower heads. Moen, Kohler and Delta all make both types of control valves. They can be readily obtained from a local plumbing supply house.

Seats in the main valve body are leaking by, allowing water to go to the shower head.

Most probably lime or other mineral deposits inside the valve stem. Remove the shower head and clean off the deposits.

To remove a valve stem you have to do the following 1- shut off the water supply 2- remove the handle 3- remove the escutcheon if applicable 4- open the valve to the half open position so it does not bind 5- use a shower socket for the size valve bonnet for the type of valve you have, Gerber, Savoy, Sterling, etc

Install a new pressure balancing valve in shower which helps with problem.

If everything else has plenty of hot water, shower valve may need adjusted or replaced.
