Question about Plumbing

1 Answer

PROBLEM; Aqua Brass faucet that controls water to either the tube or shower has come apart. The problem is that the metal pull lever that is situated on the top of the faucet has come off. With that, the internal plastic piece also has come off the pull piece that was located interally inside the faucet. I tried to place it back inside the faucet however it appears there is something missing and the parts will not stay inside.Question, is there just the one plastic piece with the small washer that fits inside the faucet or is there something else that I am missing. If not, why can't I connect the control metal arm to the plastic piece back in place inside the faucet?

You are probably missing the clip that holds it together.

It may be easier to just replace the tubspout/diverter with a new one.

Most just screw off, some are mounted with an allen screw on the underside and use washers to prevent leakage.

Replacement time 15 min. Cost 12 bucks.

Rebuild the diverter and you may make several trips to the stor just to find tyhe right parts. You will still have an old diverter/spout. and take just as much time repairing it.

Thermostatic valve does not turn

followt this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Turn off the water supply and open the faucet handle to relieve water pressure.
  2. Carefully pry off the trim cap with a small screwdriver or putty knife.
  3. Remove the locknut with an adjustable wrench, then lift the spindle out of the faucet.
  4. As needed, remove and replace the O-ring. Before reinstalling, coat the stem lightly with plumber's grease.

  6. As needed, inspect the seat and replace if damaged.
  7. Install the valve and tighten, then reinstall the handle and test.

Why is there restricted water flow

It may be as simple as cleaning the aerator out. If that is not the case then you will need to disassemble the faucet and investigate.
