help with this valve.


here is my shower valve. the problem, the water does not come out hot enough.
there is a limiter inside there. i can muscle the handle a little and get it a little hotter.

i need to get this apart. but its stuck. i took the handle off easy. but thats it. i don't care how it comes apart, except that the valve itself is still working. as i don't want to replace it just yet.

Really irks me that the nanny state thinks it needs to protect us from hot water and from ourselves. I'm sure faucets cost more because of the added parts. And my tankless water heater came pre-programmed for only 120 degrees. Good thing that was easy to change.

I bet if you Hit it with some CLR a couple times and walk away. It will bring back the shine. Just dilute a little in a spray bottle. Not like the instruction say.

its actually a nice safety feature. slow reacting persons could bump the handle. and get burned because they couldn't turn it back fast enough. had i thought about it at the time, i would have just turned is back a little, instead of cutting it off.

yeah, its a bit dirty, ay. the whole bathroom is going to be gutted someday. so i am not much interested in spotlessness in this room.
