In response to Re: Lukewarm showers, suddenly
: I have a Kohler Fairfax tub/shower faucet. Over the past month, I've noticed that my showers have gotten increasingly lukewarm with the handle at "Hot" (maxed). I get perfectly hot water from the sink. I adjusted the temperature screw in the tub faucet, didn't make much difference. Is my only recourse to replace the valve assembly? Anyone had this problem?

: I checked the drywall, downstairs ceiling, and plumbing access panel for leaks, didn't find any.

: Thanks!

The cartridge for the faucet may need to be replaced if it didn't take an adjustment, shut the water, disassemble the faucet, bring the part into a replacement parts store or plumbing supply house for an exact match up. Check out Kohlers website for a parts explosion to get a part number.
Good Luck & Happy Holidays. e-plumber
