Bathroom tub faucet temperature adjustment – Home Repair Series
Hi I’m Robert, thanks for tuning in to my YouTube video. I’m a very handy person, I’ve been fixing things as far back as I can remember. since I was 9 years old. I have fixed things like sheet rock walls, small appliances, computers, and the list goes on and on. I even have some formal training in carpentry and computer repair. So I hope you find this information useful. Working with this Delta faucet, it has some different adjustments in it that were hard for me to figure out. It has a cartridge in it that can be installed upside down, and have the cold and hot reversed. I’m going to show you how to adjust it to get more hot water. It appears to be factory set for safety, not to hot. It is limited to only supply a certain hot water mix, I’m going to show you how to get more hot water. First take a Allen driver and loosen the screw to remove the handle. Once the handle is removed, you will see this assembly, pull that plastic off to expose the brass piece. You want to install the plastic piece to allow more travel to the hot side of the assembly. Reinstall the plastic piece as far as you can clockwise. (I apologize for the bad camera view). It was like this, I’m going to adjust it like this. Now it will allow more hot water to flow. I’m going to test it to see if that will work. Now, reinstall the handle and check the temperature. The handle did travel further, so I’m going to feel to see how hot the water is now. The water is very hot now. I can barely leave my hand in the flow path. I’m going to play with the setting a little. I moved the plastic piece more counter clockwise. As you can see, the full travel of the handle is more to cold. Do adjust it so that it will be safe and warm enough for your entire family. Here, I decided to set it 3 notches past the neutral position. That seemed a little to cool, so I moved it 1 more notch, and I’m going to leave it there, 4 notches clockwise. Thanks again for watching the video.
