Bath tube plumbing is making vibrating sound then shutting off

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

If you pull the silver knob on the tub spout up, the diverter located located inside will redirect water up to the shower head and when lowered it will return the water to the tub spout. It sounds as thought the diverter is not working properly. Hope this helps..

How to adjust anti scald valve on american standard shower faucet


Remove the handle,and all the trim rings,and the cartridge cover. take a flat head screwdriver and use it to lift
up the red ring behind everything, this is the hot limit safety stop,
this just stops the handle from turning to full hot.

Once you have the red ring lifted up, notice the numbers and the pointer
on the ring, numbers are on the fixture,

O= hottest 7=cold

See what the ring pointer is set to now, and move it half, before you put this back together, just set the handle on the unit and run the water to see if its to hot or not enough. Once you have found what is the best setting, then replace all covers and trim, handle.

Leaking faucet


Hi johnparker,

The dripping is caused by the ceramic cartridge leaking. It is a non servicable part.

Couldn't find the model number listed but here is a Talia schematic.

http://www.grohecatalog.com/product/25596/

The replacement cartridges are list as 4 and 5 in for hot and one for cold. Also consider replacing part #7 it is a seat.

Good Luck and please rate this response, Phil

This is something best handled by a tub resurfacer. It is an area of specialized repair. Results varied depending on material tub is made of. Cast iron tubs Show repair more so than fiberglass. Check for tub resurfacing in Repair Service Link.
