    The only way to adjust that type is to bend the rod. I would dismantle the valve, make sure all the parts are clean and the diaphragm is not split. If that doesn't cure it buy a new valve.

    Fixed it by replacing the standard screws ones with a tool station high pressure one..
    Even the plumbers didn’t have an idea or want to know tbh
