There are a number of reasons your faucet may not be shutting off. If you have an old type of faucet, the problem may be due to a worn out washer, or the faucet may have a damaged seat. In which case, there is a tool that can be purchased in your neighborhood hardware store. You will have to disassemble the faucet and examine the seat to verify the damage. In older faucets, it is sometimes better to replace the faucet than make the repairs, as the repairs and the search for parts to repair the faucet may be almost impossible to find.

Or you may have a washerless faucet which actually has a different type of spring loaded washer, and will wear over a period of time as well.

The shut off valve may even be somewhat loose and require tightening. In most cases, this can be verified if the handle turns 360 degrees and never tightens completely.

I hope this helps you solve your problem

Why do I only have hot water in the shower


sounds like either the cold water that feeds the other half got shut off, or the mixer in the valve for controlling the water temperature is broken....most likely the water got shut off. better go to the water source and trace the cold water feed pipe ,looking for a shut off valve....it could also be behind the shower panel, then turn or rotate the valve the other way and go test the water to see if you can adjust the temperature now.....if not, then replace your hardware.......in the mean time, you could turn the temperature down on the water heater so that you won't scald yourself in the shower til you have time to fix it properly.

I replaced an Moen spout for my shower unit. Water flows thru the Spout and when level is pulled water flows thru the shower head. But there is water leak somewhere (reverse flow?). The ceiling below it...


if you have copper piping,you probably twisted the pipe when,you tightened the spout ,and broke pipe. If you are'nt able to get into the wall on the shower side, cut a hole on the other side of shower wall to repair it.

Hand held shower head leaking where connected to bracket


If it leaks continuously during use, verify that a rubber washer was used in that connection and that the connection is tight.

If it only leaks after the water is shut-off, there is a vacuum breaker installed there, which prevents water from siphoning back into your water system. It is normal for water to drain at this connection when the water is shut off.

To clean it, shut off the discharge valve at the water
heater. Then, you shut the valve off of the main water supply. After which, you can start cleaning the single
knob shower cartridge. After the cleaning job, you can
open the discharge valve of the water heater, then, the
valve of the main water supply.

I have a new moen single handle shower faucet that is only giving one temp of water (cold). Only if I have it on very slow will I feel hot water. Any idea how to fix


Did the hot water shut off get turned back on fully after the change? Is the hot water line kinked under the sink? Is the hot water shut off valve working?
