Question about Jado 842/404/144 Hatteras Low Spout Roman Tub Set w/ Handshower Cross Handle - Brushed Nickel Pictured in Chrome

1 Answer

Why did the valves stop working in a few days?

The faucet worked for a few days and then the handles stop changing the water flow. When I opened the valve body, I could tell that the ceramic disks slipped. Why? What can be done to counter this?

    It was "like new". But what can go wrong with the valves? Can this be a result of the water pressure being too high or something like that?

    Thanks! I actually tried it with another set of valves and the same thing happened. Can the Faucet body be defective somehow or this is a coincidence. You'd agree that it's too many coincidences... Can the spout allow for too much water flow somehow for example and this would cause the failure?

Water quits flowing


There is a little popper in the spout area. You need to remove the top handle and slide the spout off. The popper is in the main tube coming up. It.s a standard part at most big box hardware stores and it costs less than $10.

I have a pioneer shower valve that has pressure problem


The way anti-scald valves work is there is a slide tube inside the faucet which requires pressure from both hot and cold or else it will cut off the flow. As for temperature adjust I do not believe there is an adjustment screw but more so there are these white plastic toothed stop rings which prevent the handle from turning 360 degrees. When your adjust the stop ring, it adjusts how much hot water is allowed to mix with the cold water. My wife likes her showers a lot hotter than I, so I gave a good allowance with the stop ring. The "adjustment screws" which you are viewing are not for adjustment of temperature, they are remote cut-off screws to stop the water entirely to change the washers in the unit if needed. SO open those all the way and leave them open. Think of them as not having to go all the way into the basement to shut off the water supply just to change a few washers.

Try opening all of your faucets in the house including the two that don't work. then go around the house and shut off one faucet at a time. Sometimes the air that gets trapped in a system will do weird things. I had a similar experience and finally the faucet started sputtering and then full water flow... still can't figure it out.

wow... I wish you hadn't gone thru the expense of replacing the faucet... it's perfectly good... your problem was the aerator, it unscrews at the tip of the water spout and had collected too much sediment which eventually blocked water flow. Often happens quickly after your water is shut off at the main valve. Aerators cost about 50 cents...

if this is the faucet in picture, turn off water, pull out cartridge and inspect for any debris in cartridge or valve body, if not, turn on hot water to see if water is getting through valve body. May have kinked line or debris from or in angle stop line.

Not alot of hot water?


1st Check the temperature restricting coller behind the cover under the handle. It is used to restrict the flow of hot water to stop you from being scaulded.
2nd Those set screws will control the flow. Check to ensure both sides are open the same amount of turns. If the water pressure is good turn in the cold side.

Low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet


It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.
