    Why isn't my shower a constant temperature?

    Bathroom Specialists

    Why is my shower temperature proving inconsistent with the temperature I’m setting it to? Is there something I can do to fix this? Thank you.

    "It may be the most common and well-known cause of inconsistent water temperatures: Another water demand is initiated elsewhere in the house, thus affecting the temperature of the water flowing from your tap. When a dishwasher turns on or a toilet is flushed, there is a new demand for water placed on the system. Since the system is central to all of your home's services, all must share both the cold and hot water.

    Pressure-balanced and thermostatic shower/tub controls are designed to counteract that problem. Replacing the shower cartridge is often the best way to fix inconsistent water temperatures."
