Shower Valve Question


Hello All,

I'm nearly finished with a shower stall upgrade in my bathroom. I haven't changed anything to my (circa 1986) shower valve and when I used the shower for the first time last night the water didn't get hot as it use to. The other shower and all sinks still have hot water so I'm thinking the valve may be the issue. I'm not sure what kind of valve this is and whether or not it has a cartridge inside that needs to be either cleaner or replaced. Any help identifying would be greatly appreciated!

Shower Valve Question


Anytime a bathroom is remodel with fixtures are that old it's always better to also change out that valve.
So what is it you remodeled that could have effected that valve?
Newer valves have a set screw that allows you to adjust the anti scald valve. Not sure if one that old would even have one.
Every company makes there's differant so it's hard to tell you where the screw is.

Shower Valve Question


There is a screw to the left of the valve stem (the images I attached were rotate 90 degrees to the left for some reason). After some research, this valve looks to be a symmons that contains a TA-10 cartridge.

The only thing that could have been affected during the remodel is the introduction of dust/debris through the shower head neck. No plumbing was altered other than that.
