Leaking hotwater from the tap

I have a whirlpool bathtub. I am leaking hotwater from the tap. I have removed the covers from the hot and cold handles and taken out a screw from each. I thought I could then remove the handles and then see something like a washer/stopper that I could replace to stop the leaking faucet. I can not remove the handles. What can I try next? (I have never fixed anything before but have decided.. WHY NOT!!!!!!!)

You have two options. You can either replace the faucets- which is much easier for a novice, or you can rebuild them. As far as removing the handles, double check and make sure there is no set screw. If there is not, then the handles should come off. You may have to gently rock each one from side to side. Once you get the handles off, you should see where the valve unscrews. Now would be a good time to turn off the main water going to the tub. Once that is done carefully unscrew the valves and remove them. Take this to Lowes or Home Depot and you should be able to find repacking kits. They usually have full installation instructions included.

I'm trying to change a tap washer but there is no hex screw holding the tap on .Only an adhesive "hot " label. I can unscrew the wall mount only a certain distance


if your HOT label isn't attached to an end cap that can be removed to find the screw then look for a C-clip under the handle, pull it off then the handle will pull off

Shower goes hot then after few minutes cold then hot again and constantly up and down. this shower is only 2 month old and has done this since fited


it is possible that the hot mix valve needs to be adjusted higher or there is a crossed plumbing line somewhere down the line. ( just wondering(?) are you tapped off a standard hotwater tank or a hotwater on demand system ? ). also, how is the hot water throughout the rest of the house ?

HELLO THE FAUCET DRIPS AT THE HANDLE AND THE HOT AND COLD SEEM REVERSED


On this valve the hot/cold in reverse is easy enough to fix, but the faucet dripping at the handle is another issue. To reverse the hot and cold, turn off the house water, relieve the pressure by opening a nearby faucet. Once the water stops, remove the handle and faucet cover so you can see the valve. then the four screws that are visible need to be removed. Mark one of the screw holes with a crayon or pencil and then remove by pulling straight out. Once out, inspect the main o-ring right behind where it sits against the valve, (if this is damaged, it might be why the handle area is leaking) then turn the whole assembly clockwise 180 degrees then insert straight back in and insert screws. Tighten screws until snug. Turn water back on before installing cover and handle to check for leaks. If no leaks are found, install cover and handle and check for proper position of hot and cold. If there are leaks, tighten screws in clockwise rotation tightening each screw a quarter turn, then moving to the next one until dripping stops. If dripping is from center of stem, where the handle attaches, you will need to contact Price Pfister to request a replacement. They are very good to work with. Good luck.

Bath tub leaks


Well if its not from drain then it could be from one of the supply valve (hot/cold) it is also possible that its leaking from the overflow drain. this gets overlooked sometimes because of its location. One thinks that water has to be filled that high but one might be surprised how much water gets there when taking a shower or splashing in the tub. There should be an access panel to check the valves and overflow gasket. If not remove the handles and echuns to see if you can see anything.

I have mixer taps on my bath, cold water tap works


Remove the tap outer cover. Take out the barrel & inside there is the washer on the end of a screw which slides in and out when the tap is turned. This could have been turned too far out and will not go back in. Clean both the screw thread and inside the barrel, lubricate with petroleum jelly or similar and reassemble & test before replacing the barrel. Again lubricate all threads.
Alternatively buy a new barrel
