Water, not so hot in shower

Hi, I was wondering if any of you have had that problem. I'ts only been a month now and the water in my shower is not as warm anymore as the water in my kitchen. First I tough it was my heater but the heater is fine and it's only like if the water in my shower would come warm but not as warm as it use to be.

Is there any adjustment I would have to do in my shower or something? I have been in Mexico for 5 months, the water is kind of salty there so I;m wondering if that could be the reason?

Thanks for help

We've experienced the problem also, and when it happened to us, I attributed it to lime and such coming loose from the inside of the water heater and partially plugging the small tapered inlet in the shower valve. It's a real pain to remove, disassemble, and clean the valve, if even practical, I don't know.

To check to see if this is possibly your problem, take the shower head off of the flex hose, and inspect the head inlet for trash. There may be some in there. Also check the kitchen and bathroom screens on the faucets for trash.

The only good news I have for you is ours eventually seemed to clear itself and we got hot water back.

Most shower valves have limiters that prevent scalding water from being expelled from the shower head.

My bet is that it needs an adjustment.

My delta style faucet has an adjustment right under the handle.

(The handle must be removed by loosening the tiny allen head set screw)
