Installation instructions plumbing

How do I change the faucet direction for the cold water? The plumber installed it so that the cold water faucet turns counterclockwise instead of clockwise to shut off.

    He did put the cold water faucet on the correct side (the right), but I learned later that both the hot water faucet and teh cold water faucet are supposed to turn clockwise to shut off. The cold water faucet instead turns counterclockwise to shut off. I'll call the plumber--it make require replacing the cartridge to fix it. Thanks!

He put the wrong faucet in the cold-water side.. There may be a way to change the direction without changing the faucet... but, if there is, I don't know about it... I think you need to make the plumber come back and fix it right.. I had that problem in my shower after a plumber worked on it.. I almost burned myself to death trying to adjust the temperature.

I need to replace the hot water handle


A picture, model, or brand of the type of faucet you have will be helpful as there are only three types of faucets. One hole, two hole, and three hole faucets. The one hole ones have two types: a single hot or cold, or a mixer valve to combine hot and cold into a single faucet. Each have a surface mount or wall mount version.

They all follow the same similar installation method. Turn off water supply. Unscrew supply lines from supply to underside of the faucet. a Plumber's wrench is needed or a spanning crescent wrench to remove the supply lines.

-Unscrew whole assemble from the sink.
-insert new one into the same hole as old one.
-from underneath, install the new faucet using the supplied hardware.
-Use plumbers tape (Teflon tape). It's often a white or pink silicon tape around the threads prior to screwing the supply lines back in. Re-connect the supply line.

-Open hot water faucet to maximum. Slowly turn on the water supply. Watch for leaks and drips. If any close the water supply and undo the supply leads and apply more Teflon tape.

- to apply tape. Start at the end and pull tightly, wind the tape into the threads in the direction of the turn. Do not wind in opposite direction.

-Try to turn on water again, turn slowly until it is at maximum, watch for leaks and drips.

-now slowly close the faucet and continue watching for leaks and drops.

If the faucet is fully closed and there is no leaks, you've done a good job... basic plumbing 101.

Now if your pipes are solder types and not screwed in supply line, and you're not confident with a torch or have little experience, ask for help from a friend who has some torch knowledge or hire a plumber. It is simple to do but requires a lot more steps than simply screwing in and unscrewing supply lines.

Water Heater Rumbling When Running Cold Water In Faucet


Check and see if the cold water has been plumbed to the 'c' on the heater, the hot to the 'h', and the relief valve somewhere else, usually on the side. Maybe the plumber cheated somewhere to make installation easy.

Our tankless hot water heater runs cold sometimes.


Check for crossover: Where bad faucet cartridge or check valve lets cold enter hot pipe so hot never arrives at tap.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html
If problem is not plumbing, then add a comment and describe which water heater you have, including approx age and what has been done so far.
Call local plumber to fix tank-type heater
If you have tankless, call manufacturer to get list of local technicians who work on these computers that heat water, or save money and tear it off wall and install tank-type heater today.

We have a Reliance 501 Electric Water Heater. We get only very hot water in bathtub in one bathroom but not the other bathroom. Could the problem be the water heater?


No, the problem is not in the water heater. It could be the plumbing pipes were installed incorrectly.

A common problem with hot water is also found in the settings of anti-scald and pressure balance tub and/shower valves. You may only need to reset the temperature control on each faucet. Every faucet brand has a slightly different adjusting system. Hopefully you can find the faucet's brand name, and then visit their website to find the owner's instruction manual for your model.

A cross connection in the water piping system is rare, but it does happen from time to time. It would allow cold water to mix with the hot. You would need a plumber or leak detection company to locate every water pipe connection in and/or under your home to confirm and correct the issue.

Very little cold water from shower valve


If this is a new installation and has always beenj this way, then I would suspect that there may be an obstruction in the cold water line leading to the valve. Or something stuck in the valve at the point where the cold water is connected. If someone has worked on thius valve recently , then I would suspect that they got the valve cartridge in backwards, If the catridge is not placed in the valve correctly the opperation is messed up.

Installing a Pot Filler


Hi 13Kat,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You must connect to a flanged fitting behind the wall. The wall is sandwiched between the flange behind and the escutchen in front that holds the pot filler in place. These are usually installed on stainless steel sinks that have stainless steel back walls and do not come supplied with the flanged fitting, available at any plumbing supply.

Feel free contact me again!

Hi rbyerly,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is:
remodeled bathroom,installed new moen valve and hardware. Now water is coming from both the shower head and the faucet when the diverter is in the down postion. Question; Is this a single handle or three handle diverter? Assuming it's a three handle, it should just be a mater of adjusting the center handle. If single, the diverter is in the spout not the valve. I don't know how to direct you further without specifics. Feel free contact me again!
