In response to Re: Anti scald valve
: Plumber installed new Am.Standard tub/shower unit on 2nd floor of old drafty house. He set the anti scald according to code, but by the time it gets to the shower/tub it's 97 degrees. We can't open the walls and insulate at this time. We have no small children and live in northern New England where we would appreciate a HOT shower! Can we bypass the anti scald ourselves/ without involving the plumber?
: Could you e mail me incase I forget to come back and check the message boards?
: Thanks

I also have an American Standard mixer in my shower and you can adjust the HOT SAFETY LOCK by removing the handle, cap, and hot limit stop. You should see a black plastic ring (protruding) which makes up part of the hat water limit stop. Pry this ring out towards you, and rotate it clockwise to a click or two and then push it back into place. This is all there is to it. The Phone # for American Standard is (800)223-0068 for technical questions. Good luck
