Shaking of the valve D500058BNT Parma Shower, not the pipes

The valve start shaking sometimes when I mix hot and cold water, not with only hot, or cold, and you have to go back and forth with the handle to get the shaking.

    mixing valve allows hot water only; as cold water is added, the water temp stays hot but the volume decreases. When valve turned to cold, no water flows.

The issue you have is known as water hammer per se. It is the result of water logged air chambers in instances such as yours. The easiest solution is to turn off the water supply to the house and drain the entire system from the lowest point available such as a hose bibb/water spigot. Turn off your electric water heater if applicable as lack of water will burn out the elements. Once this is done turn the water supply back on to the house and bleed the excess air out of each appliance by turning it on and running both hot and cold water until air dissipates. Another cause may be an inadequately secured plumbing system behind the shower itself. The piping should be secured to some cross member to prevent movement caused by water pressure. A special device is made in extreme circumstances and larger systems called a water hammer arrester which does the same job as an air chamber but uses different principles to accomplish the task. I hope this is of assistance to you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

Is it possible to adjust shower mixer temperature?


Now my best guess is that you kept heater too high for a long time which means that the pipe carrying hot and cold water got touched and water became hot So turn off the heater for while and let the pipes cool off then turn the heater on at a low setting ...

Adjust water temperature


It is possible that there is an open valve on the back of the water heater which is allowing the hot and cold to mix. Locate the back of the water heater. You will see a water line going into the bottom of the water heater. That is cold water in and there will be a valve on that line. It should be open (The handle inline with the direction of the pipe). At the tope there will be another pipe coming out. That is the hot water out. It may or may not have a valve but if it does make sure that it is open. Then there will be a water line connecting the top and bottom water lines and it will have a valve in it. Make sure that the valve in this line is closed. That is a winterizing bypass valve. If this does not correct the problem let me know and I will give you more steps to consider.

The hot and cold are reversed on our single handle shower (no tub faucet -- shower only)


Hot on left.
Cold on right.
Some single handle faucets have bleed-over where both hot and cold enter mixing valve each time handle is turned on, even when faucet calls for just cold or just hot.
Otherwise maybe a do-it-yourself plumber got pipes backwards... or maybe the tub used to be on other side of wall, and tub was moved during remodeling but pipes were not changed.

To fix problem:
First of all, turn off shower faucet. Turn on Hot at sink and put ear against shower faucet listening for sound of water flowing through the mixing valve.
If mixing valve is working fine, you need to open wall and investigate more.
For example if you have access door, reach in and feel which pipe is hot.
Pipes might need to be reversed if problem comes up in home inspection, otherwise the problem will not harm anything.

My Bristan Meridian Show start ok with hot water then after a few minutes the water runs cold. Even if you try and increase the temp it still remains cold. You can switch of the shower and start again...


It sounds like 1 of 2 things to me. I will start wit hot water heater. The first test for the water heater is to have someone run the hot water while you hold the hot and cold pipes and see if the water is coming out of the water heater cold when the shower goes cold. Of the water heater is cold coming out then the problem is in the heater. ether a lower element is bad or the dip tube is broken at the top of the tank. if the hot water heater continues to put out hot water when the shower goes cold then it has to be the mixing valve for the hot and cold mix at the shower and that valve will have to be repaired or replaced. hope this gives you a good start. let me know if I can help further.

Shower valve has a thumping sound when other faucets or toilets are turned on and off.when you turn shut offs to danze shower valve off sound goes away.could this possibly be the plunger in the valve?


Vfiippone,
I have the same issue with a Danze Sonora shower Valve. I called Daze and they sent me a new cartridge. After installing it I have the same problem. I also put a surge arrester on my toilet which had little effect. If you find the cure please post it.

No hot water coming through the shower system, though hot water comes through the pipe without system attached


When you adjust the dial to mix the hot and cold for your desired liking, it goes into a mixing chamber before going to the shower head, im asumming your issue is within the mixing chamber.

Danze control valves producing loud water hammer


It sounds like your flow diverter isn't closing properly. Try removing the flow restrictors from the shower nozzle and see if that helps.

Water leaking from tap when turned off


In order to remove the Danze handle from this particular model grasp the handle of the valve and then the body of the valve and turn the body counter clockwise in order to remove.

Hope this helps.

If you don't have a supply house near you that carries parts for the Danze products you can go to danze.com and order them there.
