 UPC Tub Faucet
Author: skipg68 (GA)

This faucet has never had hot water; probable installed with incorrect setting. Can the UPC cartridege be adjusted or must it be replace? I see a red Plastic ring and a inter green plastic ring; does the red ring adjust or come out? Do I need a special tool to remove the cartridge?

Thanks,
Skip

Don't remove the cartridge. You are only interested in adjusting the temperature limit which would be the red/green part of the cartridge.

I think the red ring pulls out , rotate it to the left and push it back in.

Thanks for you response and my understanding is you are correct but how do I pull it out? Use needle nose plyers or knife to force out?

I have used the tip of a knife blade.
