I shut of the main, pulled the old cold water valve stem out, brought it to Home Depot to match it up. I found on, it says it's for Kohler faucets, whatever that means, it looks EXACTLY alike. Bring it home, install it, turn the water main back on, and I can sit there and open/close the valve and it does absolutely nothing to the flow of water.
What's the most likely thing I effed up?
The part I put in is a Danco 9C-7C COLD STEM, part number 15810B
We have been having bad water pressure for a while now. The plumber came and said that we need to replace the “inline filters”. I didn’t ask too many questions unfortunately so I was wondering if anyone knew what this is called? This is connected to our water pressure tank. I have tried googling so many things and can’t find seem to find anything showing this exact filter replacement. Any help is greatly appreciated!!
Currently live in a 1950's pier and beam single story ranch. Recently had a pinhole leak in the copper hot water pipe that led to damaged floors. We had that section fixed by a plumber and he said once we have one, we'll definitely have more as that copper wears down.
I never want to deal with this water damage/insurance headache again if I can help it, so we're going to get quotes on re-piping hot water pipes with Pex. Should we also do the cold water lines? All of this is located in a crawlspace so not under slab. Hoping it's relatively easy to do. We wont be replacing plumbing in walls as that is cost prohibitive now
Is Pex the best route to take to hopefully eliminate leaks. Any questions we should ask plumbers about type of Pex, installation etc? Really want to make sure it's done correctly.
Hey there, so I've got a bath with an old Delta faucet (2 handles, independent).
Yesterday, after filling the bath, closing the cold water handle didn't completely stop the water flow.
After closing the house water intake (no access to bath plumbing), I made sure the handle was screwed properly. Somehow it made it worse.
I removed the handle, and by playing directly with the cartridge, I managed to stop the water from running completely. But it this position, the handle doesn't fit anymore, the cartridge needs to let water pass to allow the handle to fit, and I don't understand how that's possible. Any idea? Is the cartridge the problem?
I'd obviously rather not change the faucet because I'd have to remove the ceramic around the bath.
