    The only problem with replacing the thermostat is that if you lower temp to 120 degrees ( normal setting) you get less hot water because you will add less cold water to the mix. You could run out of hot water in shower.

      Hey, Ken! It sounds like you are concerned with water pressure in the shower – which does affect the temperature if you want more water volume. Check out our video on installing a Water Pump Accumulator Tank – that could get you where you want to be pressure-wise in the shower without requiring a higher thermostat temp.
