Warm Shower
Funk

Hello everyone,

I recently remodeled my bathroom, and I am having a problem with my new shower.
When I crank up the heat, to get a hot shower, I get warm.
I adjusted the two screws on the intake, so the cold water line is at the minimum, the hot water is at the maximum, and I have turned up the hot water heater. Am I out of luck?
Will I need to bring a burning barrel of trash with me into the shower every time I want a hot shower?

Thanks for any advice, tips, or whatever else is contributed.

my guess would be that you have to adjust the temperature limit inside the shower valve. both hot and cold water feeds should always be turned on 100%

Or you installed the cartridge upside down.
