What happens when you install a shower valve upside down?
Similarly, can a mixing valve be installed upside down?
The thermostatic mixing valve can be installed in any position i.e. upside down or sideways.
Also Know, can you flip a Delta cartridge? A Delta means you need to shut off the water and flip the cartridge 180 degrees.
Just so, how do you reverse a hot and cold shower?
How to Fix a Shower With the Hot and Cold Water Reversed
- Turn the water off at the main.
- Unscrew the faucet using a small Allen wrench (a small standard screwdriver will also work).
- Unscrew the cartridge screws with a Phillips screwdriver and set them aside.
- Take off the hot limit stops on the cartridge and change the setting 180 degrees.
Are shower mixing valves universal?
First, you absolutely CANNOT mix manufacturers on trim and rough-in valves. In fact, even within one manufacturer, they have many valves and the trims are not interchangeable. Shower sets are not always sold as separate trim and rough.
