SOURCE: grohe trim pressure balance valve

i looked at it and there might be a press in cap with a screw underneath where the grohe label is. there also may be a set screw around the shoulder of the handle where an allen hex wrench fits to losen its clamp on the stem. also.......some handles just snap on and just pull off with some tugging and wiggling them just right.

SOURCE: I have a single handle shower valve by Moen. Water

there is a clip holding the cartridge in place. You need to remove that and then there is a little plastic throw away tool that comes with a new cartridge that you use to break the seals loose on the old cartridge....then you use a pair of channel locks to grab the stem and pull it out. The new cartridge should come with detailed instructions.
If it is a moentrol valve...the part number is 1225 and if it is a posi-temp it is a 1222. Moentrol you pull out to turn on and then left and right for temp adjustment. Posi-temp just turns to turn on and you turn from cold to hot to adjust through the temp range.

SOURCE: ghrohe shower valve leaking: when in off position

Sounds like the gaskets are torn or worn out. Local hardware stores sell replacements for just about every make and model out there you won't need any tools other then some screwdrivers and allen wrenches if this is the only problem. When you open the head to inspect (make sure you turn the water main off in your house just in case) check the plastic housing to see if it's brittle or cracked. If it is you will want to replace the entire unit.

How to remove the shower valve on my Maax shower? It is leaking badly, and I think I just need to get to the valve that directs water to either shower head, or back sprayer nozzles or the whole body


Its probbably the hose connected to the valve, try screwing it back on and turn the water up slowly, if that does not help, check your local radio shack

Leaking shower head


Not unless you had a backward plumber , If the diverter at the faucet is open for tub, then no water will go up the shower, The shower may hold enough water up there to make it look like a drip, Even if the valve was leaking all the time, it would not go up, it would come out the faucet. It only works with pressure. Unless the valve was plumbed wrong,,, Hope this helps.

HOW DO I FIX A LEAKING FAUCET ON A MOEN L3189


you need to remove the cartridge behind the handle. If it is dripping from the spout or shower head.
If you pull the handle to turn it on it is called a moentrol valve and take a number 1225 cartridge....it it just turns to turn on it is called a posi-temp valve and takes a 1222 cartridge.

The shower head is leaking. I disassembled the


You need to pull and replace the cartridge on your shower valve most likely. It varies by Make and Model, but generally, remove the handle, remove any sleeve around the center spine, remove the round trim plate, close the service stops, remove the retaining clip or ring, and pull the cartridge straight out of the valve body by pulling on the spline... or get a cartridge puller. Then take your cartridge to the store and get a new one. Flush the valve body by slightly opening both service stops and then install the new cartridge and reverse the process.
Generally this problem occurs when sediment has torn part of the sealing o ring on the cartridge. If you send me the make/model and/or a picture I will give you the specific instructions

turn the water off to the shower,sometimes you must shut down the whole house at the main ,near the water meter,then take the handle off slide the clip in front up and out then pull posi-temp straight out.replace posi-temp in reverse order.be mindful of the H/C indicator on posi-temp this will ensure you have hot and cold on right sides,if reversed just flip posi-temp.

Moen one control shower faucet is leaking hot water


Try replacing the cartridge first.That's your best bit . Next would be the whole valve. Hopefully, it's just the cartridge.
