I love the look of this but I cant get the water hot enough. I checked it and it is 112 degrees and all the other faucets in the house are 139 degrees. A plumber came over and made an adjustment from the back side of the unit (back wall and pipe exposed and accessible). He said that the only way to make the water hotter is to remove the scald guard. Is that correct? or is there another way?
I also have the wall mounted handheld shower installed. Not sure if you needed to know that.
I am sorry to hear about the trouble that you are having with your faucet and I would be happy to help.
The increase the maximum hot water input for your faucet, you will need to adjust the rotational limit stop. To do this, remove the temperature handle but feeling behind the handle and prying off the outer cover. Remove the philips screw to remove the next piece.
You will then see a round piece that looks like a gear. Each notch you move this piece counter clockwise will increase your maximum hot water temperature by 3-4 degrees.
