American Standard Cadet 2-handle tub & shower set-Model#3275 - low pressure output

We just installed this new tub and shower set and the pressure output is just a trickle. All other water pressure in the house is normal. Could this have anything to do with how far the cartridges are screwed in before the handles are installed?

When you installed the new tub faucet you probably turned off the water to that faucet of even the whole house. IF IT IS AN OLDER HOUSE, TURNING THE WATER OFF AND BACK ON CAN LOOSEN SOME DEBRIS IN THE WATER LINES THAT CAN FIND THEIR WAY TO YOUR NEW FAUCET. If there is a screen at the end of the water outlet it can be clogged with gunk. Uncrew the screen on the water outlet and clean. You may also want to flush out the hot and cold outlets by turning the water off, removing the cartigages and slowly let water flush them out. Then reassemble. Also when you have the tub handles out you can turn the hot and cold supply valves off and on a few times to loosen more debris if it exsists........Joe

Our bath taps which are a mixer with shower attachment stay really hot if you put the hot on first or really cold if you put the cold on first any idea how to adjust so we can have warm water when turning...


you make no sense. From the picture the water "mixer" is the center lever or is it a diverter valve for the shower and water nozzle below???
The knobs are for hot and cold water??

Diy plumbing


most likely that it is a old drain pipe as some plumbers used copper for that purpose. if it is a drain all u have to do is cap it. if it turns out to be a vent pipe u can install a end of the line vent cap. I cant remember what it is called but your supply store will know. just tell them u want to install a vent under the sink not through the roof.

Open water tank


Couple things you can try to help free it up. A nice strike with a hammer can cause vibrations to help break it loose or you could try applying heat, I usually use a mep torch. The heat lets metal expand slightly which helps to break up any buildup. Best trick is to not give it constant pressure, rather sharp taps. It it feels like your about to break it, you're probably right.

Istalling a tub


You may not need to install a vent, it depends upon how far the tub is from the main drain. I suggest you check with a licensed plumber.
