SOURCE: Moen Bath Tub Faucet

Hi varn4620,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: You had to replace the faucet in the tub due to a broken plastic piece in valve stem. Bought a Moen ripped the wall out and put new faucet in. Went good untill we turned the water on and the shower rained on us. Tightened everything you could find to tighten .Every time the water is turned on the shower rains. Can this be fixed or is the faucet broken?

Is this new faudet a single handle? If so I"ve had this experience also. Most of the time it's because the guts were not lined up properly at the factory. You may have to play with it a bit.
Turn off the water and take the handle off and remove the sleave, remove and rotate the guts. Try 90' at a time. Turn water on to try it. Useually one of the other 3 positions will be right. The correct position is there, but it may take time to find it.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: wobbly faucet on new elkay sink

this faucet comes with diffrent hold downs for diffrent sinks on is wider for stainless sinks the other is smaller for granite or corian sinks, it sounds like your plumber might have put the wrond spacer under the facet where it mounts to the sink,, it doesn't matter the sink or the faucet they all come with proper adapters, and I do know that moen and delta have them in the box with the faucet,,, good luck with yo people, this faucet of yours even comes with the plastic tool to put the faucet in because it has a long shank with threads on it and is hard to get a wrench on

SOURCE: I just installed a Glacier Bay tub/shower faucet

Hopefully you still have the directions - the diverter isn't set correctly.

30 year old Elkay bathroom one handle faucet is leaking from underneath. Does this use a replacement cartridge and how can I get a replacement part?


If it does have a cartridge, replacing it would only help it stop dripping out the faucet or from around the handle. A leak underneath is most likely to be a failure of the seal from the supply pipe to the faucet, from corrosion and/or hardening of the rubber seal that is part of the supply pipe connection. Shut off the supply. (Hopefully you have a shutoff valve under the sink.) And remove the supply pipe/tube/hose. This is very hard to do without a basin wrench. (All hardware stores have them, and they are pretty cheap.) Take the supply pipe to the hardware or home improvement store to select a replacement. Other than the material and construction of the pipe itself, and the length, there are only a couple of different fitting configurations.

All in one tub and shower has a leaking tub faucet, how do i take the whole all in one tub and shoer out, and how do i fix the faucet to the tub then put shower and tub back in(all in one piece).


When I went to take mine out I had to cut it in half. Before doing anything drastic are you sure there's no way you can excess the plumbing from the other side of the wall? Its a lot easier to patch drywall than pull a tub. The faucet and pipes should be attached to the studs in the wall and not really attached to your tub. I don't really know what part of your faucet is leaking.. Some parts you should be able to excess from the front without pulling your tub. If its from the down spout you could probably loosen a screw or allen head that's on the bottom pull it off replace it or replace the O'ring inside. I hope I have help out.

Water pressure is low on the elkay fountain


if you mean the amount of water that comes out of the bubbler head....you can adjust that by accessing the push button cartridge and turning it to adjust how far it is pushed.

American Standard Cadet model 3275 - Plastic piece inside of pipe


Yes, there is a non-replaceable plastic restrictor device screwed into the tub spout outlet of the faucet body. It's purpose is to force the flow down to the spout for when the spout diverter is not closed. It keep water from rcoming out of the shower head when the tub spout is also discharging.

This is all fine and dandy where the water supply is clean without sediment. A co-worker of mine had one of these and old galvanized piping. After 3 years, it clogged up. She got a 'deal' from a handyman plumber to replace with an identical faucet. She will have the problem again. If she had spent the money to fix it right, she would have had a single handle mixing valve put in. If it clogs, you can just pull the cartidge from the body, clean it and put it back in. Now she will have to cut into the wall again, get the plumber to replace the 2 handled unit and patch the wall again.

Or, she could have the plumber drill out/remove the restrictor but then she might get water out of both outlets at the same time....."pay me know or pay me later"....repalcing the mixing valve with a scald prevention single handle valve (with remodel plate) is the BEST long term solution.
