Question about Plumbing
The bath tube has a facet / handle shower unit mounted together. One must sit in the tub and take the hand held unit to shower. The problem is that a week ago the water would shut off soon after coming on. I would switch the water to run from the facet then back to the hand held shower unit. It seem to work. Two days ago it shut off completely. Today I turned on the water and it began to flow at low volume rate. When I increased the volume it began making a vibrating sound and the water stopped flowing. I removed the shower unit thinking that there was air in the line causing the impass. It did not work. I have turned on all of the up-stairs facets at the same time thinking that if there was air in the line it would pass. All other facets operated properly but the bathroom tub facet.
Replace the cartridge even if its new. The vibrating is from the internal workings of the stem. It also effects the volume of water.
good luck, Phil
