Subject: New shower, can't get really hot water.

East central Iowa

We had a shower that was 30 or so years old.  When you moved the handle to the hot side you got hot water.  

My wife wanted a different finish, brushed nickel rather than shiny chrome so we got a new shower valve with the brushed nickel finish.  

It controls the water temperature so you can't have just hot water.  I really don't like that.  There's some kind of portioning valve that demands a mix of cold with the hot. 

We've had this blamed thing for a couple of years and I thought maybe somebody would know if there is now available a shower valve, brushed nickel that allows hot water only.  I'm tired of lukewarm showers and I don't want to raise the temperature of the water heater any more.  Water directly from the water heater is 125°.
