Simply so, how do you adjust the temperature on a posi Moen?

This stop is what you adjust to change the water temperature.

  1. Turn the Moen faucet handle to the full hot position and allow the cold water to purge from the line.
  2. Shut off the water at the faucet and shut off the two water supply valves to the faucet.
  3. Remove the handle from the faucet.

Additionally, how do you adjust a mixing valve? To adjust the mixed outlet temperature of the valve, remove the cap to gain access to the adjusting spindle. The spindle should be rotated-clockwise to reduce the temperature, counter-clockwise to increase the temperature until the desired set point is reached.

Considering this, how do you adjust anti scald devices?

Slide the shower handle off the stem to expose the “Rotational Limit Stop” anti-scald valve. Grab the center of the “Rotational Limit Stop” and pull it toward you. Turn the Delta anti-scald valve to the left to increase the maximum temperature of the water, or turn it to the right to decrease the water temperature.

How does a Moen Posi Temp valve work?

By controlling the turning range of the handle on a Moen PosiTemp valve, these temperature limit stops restrict the water temperature range, meaning it cannot get too hot or too cold. This will increase or decrease how hot or cold your water temperature will get.
