I have three toilets in my home. In one, the water that fills the tank is far too hot. What can I do to correct this?

1- Mixing valve failed

2- Stratification of the hot into the cold water lines as heat goes to the absence of heat


3- Cross connection like a shower head or an older type of Moen shower body

4- Washing machine solenoid valves not holding

5- Installation of hot water heater wrong as they did not allow a heat sink

6- Check all faucet connections to make sure there is no HW by passing into CW lines

7- Cold water lines not separated properly from the heating or hot water ones and having transfer of heat by being to close

8- Hot water heater not piped in according to instructions
