    I'll still have to try this solution but it seems very thorough and logical. Even if the new washers don't I believe that it should be the valve that needs replacing. Thanks so much! I really appreciate you helping me out and in less than a day! Wow, you're so fast, efficient and helpful!

Turn off the water, remove the handle, escuchion, and stem.
Replace all washers/O-rings. If it is a plastic stem, replace the stem.

The seals are worn, allowing water to pass by.

On some really old valves, the actual metal walls of the valve eventually get worn, and washer replacement does not completely solve the problem, or last long. In that event, replacing the valve is about the only option.

How to repair a washer-type bath & shower faucet


  • To take apart a bath/shower faucet for repair, first turn off the water. Then take the faucet apart by removing its handle, escutcheon and packing nut. The packing nut may be buried deeply in the wall, requiring a socket wrench for removal.

  • Your bath and shower faucets may have a renewable seat that can be smoothed with a seat-dressing tool or removed and replaced using a seat wrench. For replacing and repacking the washer, follow the same instructions provided for a washer-type faucet. Some faucets may need a complete replacement of the combination stem/seat unit.

Write down the type and model of faucet you have. Most hardware stores have rebuild kits for faucets.( washers, rubber o-rings and or gaskets) You will have to turn your water off and do some minor repairs.
The kits come with step by step directions.

Check the water supply lines to the shower at the faucet handles. If the fitting for the hot water line connected to the handle is loose, it can twist and kink off the water supply further down the line when you turn the faucet handle. I'm not exactly sure how this could be relevant otherwise, but under normal design circumstances this type of scenario with your shower wouldn't matter for other faucets.

MY DELTA SCALD GUARD FAUCET WILL NOT TURN OFF HOW DO I REPAIR


When a Delta Scald Guard will not turn off, more than likely it is because the seats have worn out. Turn off the water supply and open any faucets lower stream of the shower unit. Using an allen key, locate the set c=screw in the handle and back it out. Next,Remove the Phillips screw holding the handle in place.Next turn the retaining ring counter clockwise and pull the catridge out of the faucet.Some catridges have two parts front and back. Behind the back part id two small rubber washers called seats and two springs. Install two new seats and springs and everything else in reverse order.

Not hot water should not exceed 120 degrees. If it does it will continue to melt the seats.

Installed a new moen adler tub faucet with shower diverter. When you turn on the shower water continues to come out of the tub faucet. Is there an adjustment or is it just the way it is??


Our Moen always dribbled a little since the diverter is metal-to-metal and doesn't really have any seal. The loss shouldn't be a stream though.

Water does not come from the shower head


Hi,
If your showre head has an external adjustment (usually on the face of the head) make sure that it is opened. Shower saver type valves have a push button on the pipe from the wall to the showerhead, usually close to or are a part of the showerhead. Make sure that it is opened, if you have one. Once done, remove the shower head and turn the water on. If you get water, look into the shower head. Most come with a water restrictor and it can come out of position and block the passage of water. The restrictors can vary in appearance, but usually they consist of a rubber washer and plastic disc, and are in the back of the showerhead where it unscrews from the piping from the wall. If you can get water without the shower head on, but no water through the showerhead, you can take it apart and look for restrictions or just replace it. If you cannot get water after all that, the problem is in your faucet or piping. Most Delta single handled faucets that I'm familiar with have a spring and cup washer valving arrangement. Those equipped with scald gard are somewhat more difficult to work on. Parts are available from H/Depot, Lowe's and similar. Hopefully the problem is in the showerhead proper, and not in the valve.
Best 'o luck, --W/D--
