Question about Home

1 Answer

I am attempting to replace a Symmons shower stem and washers. I have the trim removed and I am looking at what I think is the T-11 nut. It says to turn it counterclock wise. But, I can't budge it and I am afraid that I am not at the T-11nut. I have been trying to find a picture of one so that I can see it but have had no success.Any thoughts?

Why won't water turn off?


YOU MUST SHUT OFF WATER FIRST!! Because you need to replace the valve stem washer. Most likely OO washer size, black hard rubber washer is worn out.
Remove the excursion (handle) one or hot and cold. Phillip screw or allen nut back of handle.

You will see a brass valve stem the handle was attached to. Use a crescent wrench and unscrew the stem and pull to remove.

Ar the bottom of the stem you will see the black washer. Remove the screw holding the washer in and replace with new. Reverse steps to install.

Hope this helps, I never know. Mike

How to repair a washer-type bath & shower faucet


  • To take apart a bath/shower faucet for repair, first turn off the water. Then take the faucet apart by removing its handle, escutcheon and packing nut. The packing nut may be buried deeply in the wall, requiring a socket wrench for removal.

  • Your bath and shower faucets may have a renewable seat that can be smoothed with a seat-dressing tool or removed and replaced using a seat wrench. For replacing and repacking the washer, follow the same instructions provided for a washer-type faucet. Some faucets may need a complete replacement of the combination stem/seat unit.

Service a compression faucet:
  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.
  5. As needed, remove the retaining screw and pry out the washer. Install an exact-replacement washer and tighten it.
  6. As needed, inspect the seat and replace if damaged.
  7. Install the valve and tighten, then reinstall the handle and test.
Repair a reverse-compression faucet:
  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 and remove the handle screw. Unscrew the packing nut and lift out the stem assembly.
  3. As needed, pry out the washer under the packing nut and replace it.
  4. As needed, remove the seat washer and replace it with one that fits exactly. Rethread the spindle and washer back onto the stem, and reassemble the faucet.

How do you internally adjust the hot water setting of a Symmons pressure balancing mixing valve?


  • To set the shower valve handle limit stop, remove the screw holding on to the handle and remove the handle.
  • Remove the round dome cover by turning in a counter-clockwise direction. At this point you will see a small slotted screw head that is visible in the valve cap.
  • Place the handle back on the valve stem (loosely) and open the valve turning the handle until the maximum desired position is reached. This may require turning the limit stop screw (T-34) counter-clockwise (see CAUTION above). To most accurately and safely verify the temperature of the hot water, place a thermometer in a tumbler of water filled from tub outlet.
  • Shut off valve and re-attach dome and handle.

    We installed low flow shower heads on a symmons temptrol system and now the showers do not get hot and the temperature flustuates.


    You might want to change out to a different model. The highsierra showerhead company makes a 1.5 gpm showerhead that works well and won't clog. It fits a standard male thread stem so maybe you would need an adaptor.

    When I turn the knob that directs the water from the tub faucet to the shower, half of the water goes to the shower head, and the rest still goes out of the faucet to the tub. How do I get the water to go...


    just like the shut off valves, the washers need to be replaced on the "third" handle. sometimes you will need to replace the "seat" as well. this requires a special tool to remove.

    you will have to remove the handle and trim, and remove the valve stem.

    if you can't remove, or don't feel comfortable, call a handyman. should only take about 20 minutes to replace all the washers. be sure check the "seats" too.

    I have an 11 year old, single handle shower control that when turned off has dripping. I have taken off the handle, etc and am at the wall. What is the next step or steps?


    After you remove the chrome collar and plastic collar washer (behind the faucet handle), pry the beauty plate off the wall. Turn off the house main water supply. Remove the four screws and washer holding the cartridge and valve stem in place. Save the metal washer under the four screws for use with the new cartridge. Replace the stem/cartridge assembly and secure with the saved metal washer and four screws. Reinstall beauty plate, collar & collar washer, then handle.

    Replace delta single handle shower cylinder


    Yes, I believe this unit uses a cartridge right? They do fit a little tight due to the small washers on the back side of the cartridge. If this is the one I'm thinking of, there are two leg like appendenges that come off the back and fit into small holes at the back of the manifold or what some call mixing valve housing.
