Question about Danze D135300BT Single Handle 3/4 Volume Control Valve

1 Answer

My Danze showerhead runs even when turned off

I have three of these valves in my shower and recently one of them began running even when the valve is completely closed. It seems that water is leaking around the cartridge - not a good seal. Danze has send me three replacement cartridges, but all of them begin to leak within 10 minutes of installing them in the valve. Weird thing is that if I move one of the original cartridges from another valve, the leak stops. Danze tells me there is only one cartridge and there's no chance they are mailing me the wrong part. Any help would be appreciated - I've run out of ideas!

Try cleaning the inside of the valve with 1500 grit wet sandpaper. and then put a lot of waterproof plumbing grease in there and also on the cartridge. sometimes you can get a build up of hard water inside the valve body and that will cause leaks. just dont over do it with the sandpaper and dont anything more abrasive than 1500 grit.

I don't want to pay for anything.  I didn't realize there was a fee attached until I got to the last part so I just shut my computer down without selecting a payment and still you contacted me.  No thanks!  Remove me.

When I rotate the shower handle up to the point where hot water starts to mix in I get a 'moaning' type sound and a very low vibration. The last time I replaced the valve the vibration was very...

The seal for the hot water is loose, allowing it to vibrate and give you that noise. The springs will go into the valve body, replacing the old springs and giving the seal more strength to resist vibrating from the water flow. I bet they give you directions, if not a good plumbing supply store may be able to walk you through it. Sorry to say I'm not familiar with your brand, but the generic problem is quite common.

Installed new tub/shower valve, water comes out of showerhead when water is turned on even though spout is open

the diverter valve is probably bad. put a new one in. the valve cuts off the water to shower, while running bath water.

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 and order them there.
