What’s the worst thing that could happen to you at home during the cold, winter season? Your water not heating up, of course! There are different reasons why the water coming out of your shower is not getting to the right temperature. Among those is that most of the valves that come with the showers are built in a way that they’ll have a maximum ratio of cold and hot water built into the valve.
The good news is that you can easily adjust this without really raising the temperature from your water heater. All you need are a few tools for opening the shower valve, a thermometer for measuring the temperature of the water, and detailed instructions from video creator ‘Scott Driscoll’.
Simply move on to the next page for the step-by-step instructions on how you can tweak your shower valve a bit to make the water from your shower heat up better. Just be sure to stay below your state’s temperature limits for showers.
