Can anyone tell me why my Moen single handle shower facuet works the opposte of the way it should?? (i.e. Clockwise is hotter, Counter-Clockwise is colder)

And how I can fix it?

Right now can't get to the pipes to see of it is plumbed correctly, which I imagine would be the obvious problem.

Is this a new shower mixing valve that was recently installed?

Remove the handle, pull up on the retainer clip to remove it, pull straight out on the cartridge, rotate 180 degrees (the cartridge that is), put cartridge back in, put in retaining clip, put handle on, should work ok.

Oh, turn the water off to the house first.

Yes, the bathroom was fairly recently remodelled, before I bought the house.

OK, so Hot is now Hot, however it seems to have much lower (approx 50%)pressure than the cold side.

The pressure on the cold side of the mixer seems fine and the hot (as well as cold) water at the sink is fine.

Could I STILL not have this right???
