Shower/tub flow

Hello, Having trouble maintaining water temerature. I have an old house with a standard 3-valve diverter. A few min. after I set temperature it will change either hot or colder. I replaced all three valves, same problem. Out of curiosity I turned on the hot water, after a minute or two the flow started to diminish. suggestions please. Thank you, Al

My guess is the hot water is expanding the valve components closing it up a bit.

Hi toolmom, thank you for your response. When you speak of "valve components" what might they be, I replaced the three valves that go into the diverter, are you talking about the water heater and the supply lines? Al
