Adjusting Delta Shower Valve Temperature Setting

Marty Hatley explains scald guard protection and demonstrates how to set the temperature limit stop on Delta single handle shower, tub and shower, and tub valves.

   In most of the country adjusting the temperature setting only has to be done once. This is not the case in the Phoenix metro area. The wide temperature swings in the water coming into the house from winter to summer means that the temperature adjustment will have to be done twice a year, in the summer when the water becomes very warm and again in the winter when the water is cold.
