If the water pressure is high all thru the house then turn down the valve on water main or or if well adjust cut in -cut out or valve down a bit if just high at tubs can adjust valves on water line can install a water saver behind shower head or if u have access to the valve body in wall there are adjustments on both sides where the water lines come into -----if this is about temp in ur paperwork advises how to adjust the anti-scold --remove handle and trim will see a blue and red plastic clip on valve stem adjust till temp is comfortable

Our shower valve will not shut off on new install


It's not clear whether you installed this yourself or whether a plumber did the install. I suspect it's a DIY effort, so you may have to de-install the unit and return for an exchange. A reputable plumber would have checked the unit out before leaving your home.

Installed a new tub faucet and I have no water coming out of it


When you turned off the water to remove the old faucet did you have to turn off the water to the whole house or was there cut off valves going to the tub. Did you install cut off valves for the tub and forgot to turn them back on before trying the new faucet. What type of faucet did you install? Whats the make and model. Its possible something got caught/dropped in the pipe when you were installing the new faucet and is now blocking the flow of water.

I have a leak coming from the "cold" line right at the valve joint. There is signifigant calcuim build up on the pipe from the valve to the connection of the water heater, (maybe 8 inch of pipe)...


Very simple - call a Plumber. He will fix your plumbing problem, and any foreseen potential problems related to your water leak. He may also suggest replacing your 6 year old water heater. Of course ..... for a professional cost.
However, depending on your time, skills, proper tools, patience and luck, it's easy enough to perform yourself:
1. Switch off the water heater Breakers (220v) in your service panel.
2. Turn off the water supply to the water heater.
3. Attach a water hose to the drain faucet. ( a good time to flush sediment -calcium deposits)
4. Open a hot water faucet to vent (above the level of the water heater drain - kitchen sink)
5. Remove the suspected leak components. (a union connection is a good place to start)
6. Install New pipes -3 wrap all male threaded ends with teflon Tap. Tighten securely - using 2 wrenches.
NOTE: Before refilling - you can turn on the water heater supply valve for a few minutes, to flush out any lingering calcium debris.
7. Shut off drain valve - remove hose. Shut off venting hot water faucet.
8. Turn on water supply valve to fill water heater.
9. Open a hot water faucet to relieve air pressure while filling - preferably the bath tub faucet, it doesn't have a screen that might clog.
10. When water flows without air - shut off tub faucet.
11. Look for leaks.
12. Switch the water heater Breakers on.
Note: 50 gallons should take an hour or more to heat up. Turn on a hot water valve momentarily within this heat up time to relieve thermal expansion. ( the PT valve on your water heater will perform this task if pressures/temperature exceed new water heater tolerances - it's just a precaution to introduce these fluctuating pressures on your fragile 6 year old unit)

These are just basic instructions - assuming you fill in the common sense and work safe steps.
Good Luck - The Skill will only come after trying.

We have Delta brand tub/shower fixtures, the one handle kind. The problem is that water comes out of both the tub faucet and the shower head, even though the shower is not turned on. This happens every...


You need to replace the tub diverter/spout. There are two kinds, I hope you have the kind with
an allen head set screw on the bottom side of the spout near the shower wall. These are super
easy to replace ! Loosen the set screw, twist the spout a little and it should slide off. When installing
the new spout, smear some vaseline on the copper pipe sticking out, this will help seal the new O rings in the spout.

The other kind of spout has pipe threads in it. They can be a little more tricky. I got called to a
house one time. The plastic female threads on the spout cracked when the plumber installed it.
The water ran down the inside of the wall and did damage down stairs. The leak could not be seen
until the sheet rock down stairs fell down from being soaked. You need to put some pipe dope on the threads, then tighten the spout on by hand, so as not to scratch it with a pump pliers.

I hope this helps !

On new Moen shower faucet, when I turn on faucet, water drips from shower also.


The faucet was installed upside down.
The shower riser pipe in the wall is to short( the distance between the faucet and shower head).
One of the biggest problems is if your shower faucet was installed with Pex pipe to the tub spout. Pex pipe will restrict the flow and force the water back up and out of the shower head.
The tub spout must be piped with at least 1/2 brass pipe nipples and fittings, or 5/8 OD. copper pipe and fittings.
Hope this helps, if you further questions please let us know.

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.

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!

Thank you,
Harvey your Master Plumber
