Hi wpdot,


I assume  you want a greater percentage of hot water.


Most single handle bath/shower valves have a temperature stop which can be adjusted to gave you more hot water at the maximum setting.


To adjust the stop you must remove the handle and trim to reveal the cartridge, on the cartridge or the adjoining housing will be the hot water stop.


Move the stop the the next position usually to the left, to increase the volume of hot water, don't go too far as young children and elderly users may be scalded if the water in too hot.


Turn on the valve and test the maximum temperature, adjust as necessary to reach the temperature you desire.


For specific instructions go to your bath faucet manufacturers web site for the details on how to adjust the stop.
