HUB-001A-WAX Vado Thermostatic Cartridge Not Regulating Temperature

The Problem

 - The shower doesn't regulate water temperature correctly

 - Water temperature too hot

 - Water temperature too cold

 - Water temperature too tepid

 

Solution

Usually, if you're experiencing problems with the temperature of the water coming out of the shower valve the issue is one of the following:

1.  No hot water feed coming from boiler

 - Check to see if hot water is coming from the boiler

2. Blocked hot or cold water pipe

 - Check to see if hot and cold water pipes are clear of blockages

3.  Thermostatic cartridge problem

 - If the above two points are okay then it's likely that the cartridge is the problem.  In this case, replacing the old Vado HUB-001A-WAX cartridge with a new one should solve the problem.
