- Q: How do I reverse hot and cold to required handle operation?
A: Simply rotate the cartridge as described in the "Back to Back" installation guidelines enclosed with all Tempress products.
- Q: How do I eliminate Tub Filler or Shower Head drips after shut-off?
A: Normally some water remains in the shower piping although incorrect setting of the stop-ring causes a partially open cartridge or, and although unlikely, it is possible that the inlet o-ring seal is defective or simply worn out.
Allow the column to drain for 3-5 minutes or push lever on tub spout to tub fill position.
Reset the stop-ring as described in the 'rough-in' instructions.
Check the o-ring for cuts or other damage/wear and replace if necessary.
- Q: If the shower is insufficiently hot, how do I correct this?
A: It is most likely that the hot limit stop is incorrectly set.
Refer to the instructions included to reset stop and again check hot water temperature.
- Q: Hot or Cold water is not flowing properly
A: Partial or no Flow usually indicates that either the system is not fully pressurized, debris is caught inside the inlet of the cartridge or the escutcheon is not engaging with the plastic valve driver.
Be sure service stops are fully open and system is pressurized.
Remove and flush the cartridge and/or remove/flush any debris lodged inside the hot/cold inlets.
If not engaging properly, use either the 1/2" or 3/4" Extension kit.
- Q: Installed the valve body too deep in the wall. Solution?
A: Install either the 1/2" or 3/4" Extension kit.
