Shower only has hot water


Hi everyone,

Was wondering if anyone has run into this problem. When the shower is turned on the shower head only puts out hot water. It is a set up with the Hot and cold knobs. Then it has the center piece twist to turn on shower. If I turn on the hot water knob the water coming out of the shower head will get a little cooler but then I lose water pressure. Any ideas on this? I was thinking of replacing it anyway but didnt know if that would fix it.

Shower only has hot water


One of the handles has a defective seat washer(cold)--Remove the cap nut and faucet stem--
(turn off the water to the house first!)

Take that to a plumbing supply house and get the replacement parts--install and you should be good.
