Because they put round knobs on a faucet that should have levers.

Builders don't take the time to check after the trailer is water tested.
Mine canít be rotated due to a key on the cartridge and a notch on the valve body. If mine had levers, it would be correct, but it has round knobs, so the cold rotates the wrong way.

My bad. I assumed again. I thought we were talking about single handles faucets.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

The standard for 2-handled faucetry is:

Round handles: hot turns off clockwise, cold turns off clockwise

Cross handles: hot turns off clockwise, cold turns off counter-clockwise

Lever handles for lavatory faucets: hot turns off clockwise, cold turns off counter-clockwise

Lever handles for tub or shower: one handle turns off clockwise or counter-clockwise, the other turns off in the opposite direction

Mine are: hot turns off clockwise, cold turns off counter-clockwise.
If I cross the handles they are the opposite.
What I did is I took the hot off of a different faucet so: hot turns off clockwise, cold turns off clockwise.
Now I will have to order a couple sets of handles so all are the same.
