In response to Re: Too hot showers! (where's the cold?)
: I live in an old shared house. I've noticed that we can't get 'cold' water during a shower. When you first turn it on, it's cold, then goes hot, and when you turn the dial (one handle, those octaganal clear plastic handles with one screw in middle)it's scorching all the way to the left ('hot) and very very hot all the way to the right (cold). While some of the roomies don't notice (liking very hot showers) I can sometimes barely stand to remain under it. Is this something I can fix myself unscrewing and fiddling with the knob or do I need to call a plumber?? (no one has plumbing knowledge).. help, my showers are becoming anxious experiences.... THANKS!

You need a plumber because it is too involved.
You have to know what brand of model valve you have and how old it is. (that info. can be seen on the face of the shower knob or base)but I do
not suggest you try the repair because a valve more ten years old will be out of stock.
