crashedfire: My valve is completely stuck, and is mostly stuck inside the shower fixture (tile, so can't depress to get more room). Even when I get a relatively good hold with my wrench, it doesn't turn at all. Any suggestions on how to remove it without having to bust open some tile?
Billy the Substitute Teacher: It looks like you repaired the hole in the wall....
Peggylee Willoby: THANK YOU your video is excellent, I learned a lot plus I won't be calling my plumber anymore, he kept changing the washer but not the valve seat :) Faucet seat wrench $ 6 at Ace and I got the washer kit for $5... No more drip drop
Michael Covarrubias: good video J.G...i just have one question...... i have 2 new valve stems to put in and i noticed that one valve stem comes with a white gasket and the other comes with a black gasket... is the valve stem with the green gasket for the cold water or hot water? thanks in advance for the feedback buddy!
WeldingFiend: Oh man. I just paid $120 for a plumber to come fix a leaky faucet. 10 minutes and 2 gaskets changed... and 5 days later the leak is back and worse than ever. Found this video, removed the seat, and sure enough there is a good sized nick in the ring. Wish I had tackled it myself in the first placed and saved myself some money! Thanks for the help.
joe blow: great video
joe blow: a good phillips screw driver will sometimes remove a seat
Michael Anway: Just a suggestion for anyone trying this.This is a good simple repair video,however before installing the cover and knob you should have turned on the water and checked for leaks way in the back where (you put the teflon tape)the seat is before closing it up,once covered you would never see a leak inside the wall. Otherwise nice video.
gRosh08: Well done!
YnoT196: good video but valve seats do not come out that easy all the time. actually never.
John Sauls: I always replace both at the same time. If not, I am back at it replacing the other one. Thank you. Good video.
Charlie Zollo: Last note: it was my valve handle screw head that had snapped off....so I had to drill...but when I did get it off it was fused with mineral deposits. Price Pfister...not bad for 23 yrs....fixed hot water side, cold water side works fine but I bought the kit for both at ACE...about $40. Saved over $300 on a plumber! I had individual shut off's in basement.
Charlie Zollo: Whatever you do ,do not force the valve off...wd40 and heat, and go slow, eventually it will screw off.
Charlie Zollo: Thanks, this gave me enough info to fix my leaky shower myself...a few things for those who have 20 yr old valves though....the knob may be fused to the valve stem...you may need to drill it out..start with a 1/16th bit, move up to 1/4"...it will come of.f..but you will need a new valve as you will have destroyed it. Also, if you can't unscrew the valve from the pipe....aside fromWD 40...use a heat gun or hair dryer....learned this trick taking shotguns apart...give is 30 secs high heat and it screws right off.
Cecil Fuentes: My gasket seat stripped . How do I get it out. ?
Jordan Samson: Quick and to the point, thanks for the info.
Kurt Snow: I live in a older house made back in the 70s, I didn't have to cut the main water line to the house off to replace my shower valve stems, is that something only necessary for newer homes are did I just break a plumbing rule by not cutting the main water line off to the house?
SANTA CLAUSE: Great Video But I would of Changed Both at the Same time Also you said around $2.00 for parts?? Plus unless your a Plumber Most People don't have the Tool Around your Home So that was over $10.00 So Just to let the people Know it is a Easy Fix if you have the right tools Also 99 out of 100 your not going to be able to use an adjustable tool you will need the Socket that fits the Stem to remove it from the wall area And make sure you Turn the Main water supply on the outside of the Home
