Did this video help you?

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 

Jennies Garage: GreenJanuary you only need to turn off the water if you want to stay dry :)

INJURYCOMP: I had never known what was behind a shower faucet or how to get it off. Thanks to your video and another video I was able to fix the leak. I am going to change the stem on all three knobs (hot/cold/shower-faucet knob). Like Gomer Pyle said, THANK YA! THANK YA! THANK YA!

Richard HO: Looks like you had an easier time than I did. On my first try I encountered some problems that you didn't have. First off, I didn't have the pleasure of removing the faucet stem and taking it to the hardware store. I live in a condo and needed to get permission from the resident manager to schedule a shut off date. I only had a two hour window to repair my leaky faucet. Once the water was shut off, I then had to remove the hot water stem with my locking pliers. While I was able to remove it with the pliers, the surface area to remove the stem was very small. Once I had removed the stem, I had difficulty removing the seat. I don't know if it was stuck or I wasn't using the seat removal tool correctly. I probably should have tapped on it a little. Anyway, I replaced the stem with a new one and just utilized the original seat. Luckily the seat wasn't too damaged and the leaking stopped. Thanks for the informative video though. 

Mary Rodriguez: Just watched your video. I had changed out the washer and a few weeks later my hot water started leaking in the shower again. This time I changed out the stem valve because I noticed that the metal housing that the washer sits in was deteriorating. NO MORE DRIPPING! Thank you!

Sylvia Crowhurst: thanks for the very detailed video. Got both done in an hour including visit to hardware store! 

Gabriel Abraham Puliran: thanks! very helpful..! :p

Erin R.: Thank you for the video! I was able to change my valve stem myself and stop that constant dripping. Do you have any videos in how to fix a bathroom plug that won't flip down? :)

Justin Mahabirsingh: Very informative. Any advice if the seat is worn and corroded such that the seat wrench just eats away the seat

Richard Graves: I replaced the whole stem on my faucet because the brass was chipped. The faucet still leaked, and now I know why. I had no idea that you could replace the valve seat! Thanks for the video.

af1rs2jl: I had no idea the seats could be replaced. Thanks for the video.

Alex Potter: Thanks

brewster102: What was the purpose of unscrewing the inner sleeve of the valve?

mike cool: Thanks for you post. I replaced the faucets on my shower a while back but was still dripping. I saw the vid on how to replace the seats and i did it today. It was just as you show it on the vid. Saved me some bucks and i learned something although i was a little comprehensive at first. Hooray for me, even my bitchy wife gave me a d+ but wtf could i expect from her right ??

raylotta1: Thank you for posting this video. I have the same problem, and although Im pretty mechanically inclined, I was a little skeptical in attempting to repair this myself. But not anymore!! Im especially glad to know I have to turn the water service off. A big dummy associate from H.D. said I didn't have to. So thanks again also, for preventing a possible scalding from hot water. Best to you

Mike Fuller: Thanks a lot. This helps.

koaheart: Thanks for such an informative video, great refresher for me. It's been 10 yrs or more since my last one. As for your shower head, they sell low pressure "power shower" heads for $5-$6 at Wal-Mart. Great for a man, the ladies don't care for`m much tho. Steps up the spray, we had them on Navy ships

William Herbert: I also had a leaking shower valve and it is fixed now. I was not sure about the procedure until watching your video. I have a different stem type but he process is the same and the nut for the stem is not as easily reached. A five dollar stem wrench from the hardware store solved reaching the nut. Thanks for the video.

TCBTCB20: STAY AWAY FROM NET10 AND THEIR PHONES. Bought an LG L35G Net10 optimus android phone 31 days ago. ON THE BOX it says 4GB, expandable to 32GB. I bought the phone and an SD card - THE PHONE CANNOT ACCESS THE 32GB for O/S or data or app purposes. it is basically just picture storage. This phone has SO LITTLE INTERNAL MEMORY allocated for the O/S that after the initial OS upgrade which it needed it RAN OUT OF MEMORY! This phone CAN NOT POSSIBLY FUNCTION as a smart phone. TOTALLY FALSE ADVERTISING. Will NET10 issue me a refund? NO. Will the store I bought it from take it back? NO. so I am stuck with this POS and an SD card I do not need. I spent HOURS on the phone with NET10 trying to get it to work then trying to get a refund - a credit - ANYTHING. THIS COMPANY S/U/C/K/S A/S/S STAY THE H/E/L/L AWAY. (I am PC tech in Florida if that matters as far as credibility)
