Did this video help you?

Cecil Fuentes: My gasket seat stripped . How do I get it out. ?

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.

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? 

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.

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 

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!

Charlie Zollo: Whatever you do ,do not force the valve off...wd40 and heat, and go slow, eventually it will screw off.

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

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

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!

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. 

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

Alex Potter: Thanks

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

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 ??

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?

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

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. 

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

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!!
