Did this video help you?

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

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 ??

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

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

Alex Potter: Thanks

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.

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

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

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.

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. 

Jennies Garage: I'm really sorry. I may have saved you some money, but if it weren't for the video, you could've had a brand new bathroom :)

Jennies Garage: $5.99 on Amazon, $7 at Lowes.

TheNakedAtheist: Yeah that's the thing. I would have assumed it wouldn't be easily accessible. On top of that my wife would have said "just call a plumber before you start putting holes in the wall, and cost us even more". She has little faith. Not that me tearing things up that I've tried to fix is unheard of. :-)

Dee Walden: NOT if there is a crack

Maricruz De San Luis Rey: Great video! A lot of plumbers will say, I need to replace d whole thing, bec they dont want to deal w small parts! I learned a lot w this video! Tx...super great

Nick Saras: THANKS NICE

Jennies Garage: Hi! I used teflon tape to re-seal the valve seat. It was wider than the threads, so I trimmed it down so it wouldn't inhibit the water flow. Thanks!

Jennies Garage: Thanks! That faucet should be as good as new now!

Jw Salthouse: ..informative & helpful. Thank you.

basswomanuk: Great video, thanks! If I may make one comment - when you are referring to re-seating the valve+/ replacing the metal washers could you please be more specific about the type of sealant you are using for example: is it waterproof sealant or is it ptfe tape? Thanks again.

Miguel Gonzalez: Great work and video

scu943: Had I seen this video a day earlier I would've saved $36. I had the same dripping problem for months and decided to do it myself with no knowledge of plumbing. Got new stems and handles and everything worked out great except that all I needed to do was change one washer. But then again the old stems were mismatched in length and worn out as the handles I had before were the wrong size. So not only I stopped the leak but it looks great now. Now I know for next time and save money.

Jennies Garage: You're right. A lot of plumbers would rather just slap in a new fixture. Glad you enjoyed the video!

lgicrz: Great video thanks

Christine Hall: Good Morning jenniesgarage, I did everything that was showed in your video, but my shower head still leaks, it feels like the hot water isn't turning all of the way off help...water is actually running, it's low but I do have to pay for water...any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for taking the time to read and respond to this email.

Richard Bosco: Thanks for the tip looks like that's what I will be doing this weekend.

Jennies Garage: Glad you got it fixed, and a nice handle upgrade too!

Jennies Garage: Thank you, I appreciate the compliment :)

Jennies Garage: Happy to help out!

GreenJanuary: does water need to be cut off first?

Jennies Garage: I hope all goes well, thanks!

Jennies Garage: Happy to help out!

Jennies Garage: Hi! Yes, Home Depot should have everything. I bought my parts at Lowes, and didn't need to go to a specialty plumbing store.

Jennies Garage: Happy to help out!

TheNakedAtheist: I don't even want to imagine how much a plumber would have charged for that, and to be honest calling one is how I would have handled a leaky shower before watching this.

Jennies Garage: Great job!!

Gus Stalin: So, I replaced the valve seat and the washer and I am still having a leak. I will do more tests.

Jw Salthouse: funny he mentions 'just two dollars worth of parts'. mine were about $3 BUT the valve seat bib remover tool was $17! Thank God it's a ONE time expense... btw, the video was very

Eric X: I have a hot, cold & the one for the tub. The one for the tub is shut off & closed cuz its no longer used. My cold one leaks, the threading was stripped on the stem, bought a new one, replaced it, changed the o ring on all 3 of them. Now that the leak is gone, only a little water comes on from the hot one. Anybody know why?

Dee Walden: Thank you Thank you, Thank you, I have been having a problem for a month and don't have the money for a plumber. I am pretty handy around the house and knew I could do it myself your video confirmed it.

Beau Ferchaud: I watched half of this video and was able to figure out. thanks a bunch! I was able to learn what the problem was, how to fix it and it only cost $8 for parts.

Jennies Garage: Yeah, that tool is expensive. Glad you got it fixed!

BOXODORK: Thanks for showing the valve seat problem and replacement. It 's the same problem I'm having.

vikingwarbrides: I have older stems (Gerber). I'm wondering if I can replace all three stems and seats with say... some current company's stems, that are the same length, or would I have to cut the copper pipe out and replace the whole thing just to upgrade?

Jennies Garage: Sounds like a simple fix! Good luck with the project!

Jennies Garage: I think you'll have to stick with Gerber hardware, unless you want to take out the whole thing. You could get new handles and escutcheons though, and it would look like new. Thanks!

Jennies Garage: It was a pretty easy fix for a very irritating problem! I was lucky everything came apart easily, and was accessible.

sharona681: exactly I cant believe people are making video's claiming to have to replace the seats, and valves its a simple fix of a 5 cent washer...

Jennies Garage: Sorry to hear about the trouble, that price sounds pretty high. You must have some super hot water to melt through brass! My suggestion would be to get a couple more estimates (without telling them what the previous plumber diagnosed the problem as) and see if they all say it's the same problem. You'll also get a feel for what a fair price is. If you feel brave you could always tackle the job yourself too...
