Question about Plumbing
We have a relatively new Hudson Reed thermostatic valve with outputs of which only 2 at a time can function. It was running fine for about a month and suddenly it will start making a banging noise. Turning off one of the 2 outputs works most of the time (doesn't matter which one) but so does turning it off completely waiting a second and turning it back on. Any ideas what the problem could be? We have 65 PSI and the unit is rated from 2 to 75 PSI.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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

SOURCE: moen shower valves are failing
the diverter is stuck. you have to move it up and down to free it up. the diverter is the mechanism attached to the tub spout that switches the water from shower to tub. you may also need a new diverter if fiddling with it doesn't work.

I would take the aerator off, and turn faucet on to see if the same thing happens. the aerator screws on the very end of faucet were water comes out. You may need channel locks to loosen, If your worried about marking up the aerator with scratches, then hold a cloth around aerator to protect the finish. Do not squeeze to hard with pliers. If there is a constant flow now with the aerator off, then your problem is a clogged up aerator. Disasemble, laying pieces out on table the same way they came out for proper reassembly, after cleaning.
