Did this video help you?

dreambigbeats: i did everything and put it back the same way but when i turn the water back on, the water is still runing like its not off and when i try to turn it, it turns it on more.

trueplumbinator: Thanks Paul allen,I'm glad my video helped you to get your cartridge changed out. Let me know if I Could help you with anything else. 

scaronscar: So I replaced my cartridge and it still is dripping do I need to replace the valve...?? Iv tried cleaning it and running the water we also have a new water heater so I shouldn't be getting a lot of debris

trueplumbinator: Thanks zahid I appreciate your comment. I appreciate you watching my video,let me know if I can be of help in any other way

maryaq3: I'm a 57 yr. old woman, and I'm canceling my plumbers appt., this was a great video, easy to follow. Thanks!!

mardz84: We replaced cartridge but the faucet runs like if we have it on. We thought it was because we needed to get the handle so we went out and bought one. Still the water won't turn off if when we turn the handle up or down. My brother said we have the wrong cartridge. According to him we got the cartridge that only regulates the temperature not the one that does both (shuts the bath faucet off and regulates temperature) but the guy at the plumbing store sold us this part. Our Delta is 1400 series and it was installed in 2005 or before so we had to go to a plumbing store to get it. Any ideas why we can't turn off the faucet. It's so frustrating

Alex Figueroa: Looks easy enough but lets see if its that easy for me. Thanks for your video!! :-)

David Garbrick: Thanks Pluminator for taking the time to do these videos sharing your knowledge. It has helped me and I'm sure many others. God Bless.

Delstar: Do i have to close main water valve or i can change cartridge when main is on ? I know its gonna be pressure and wet but i don't care if its possible. The thing is i don't have easy access to main shot off valve and easier is change it without close valve. 

John Darrell: Thank You , Your video was real informative for me.

Josue Breton: Thanks. Spent 30 minutes at Lowes and another 35 at Home Depot waiting on someone to explain this to me. I left when I saw this video. 

sarah mceleney: do you have to shut off the water to do this

John White: Working on my honey-do list. This video from the "Truepluminator" on YouTube was pretty helpful for replacing a shower value cartridge. 

Paul Allen: Thanks for sharing. My home is nearly 50 years old and I wasn't sure how old the faucet was but a healthy dose of WD-40 finally got the cartridge nut to come loose. After a trip to two different stores I found out that mine was a 1500 series and needed a 1700 series with an adapter.

Mars Bars: My Father hired some bum jack of all trades. (Hes a know it all douche) He installed the cartridge reversed. He was going to charge for an error he did. I shut the water off, removed the handle, removed the cartridge, reassemble and increased hot water temperature. Confronted the douche and hes in denial. THANK YOU @trueplumbinator for making this useful video. I know nothing of the plumbing trade. All it takes is common sense and a positive attitude to fix something this simple. Much Props to you sir. CHEERS

jorge guadian: Good Video. Can you explain how to set the temperature control limit on the valve. Thanks 

Zahid Khan: great video! ill give it a try once the part comes in from Delta this week.

Tamara Widrick: Very helpful! Thanks !!!

Mike Carroll: Thanks for sharing. Seeing how everything came apart made the repair very simple...no more dripping faucet

Myr381: Thanks for getting back to me but i have think it is 1700. i was able to get allen screw out from the handle but the handIe won't come off to get to the cartridge. Help!!!!!!!

luvlydymepiece: helpful and simple...but now the water will not turn off when i turn it to off position. any suggestions?

Xanthe Emerick: You tutorial is excellent. I got as far as removing the excussion and the trim plate. It looks like the cartridge is within the next piece...doesn't appear to have a nut to unscrew. I'm unsure what to do next? I also can't seem to find the model number anywhere to get the new cartridge from Delta. Can you help?

Darrell Pacheco: just installed this but when i turned on the water the valve would not turn off. when working with the catridge it seperted in two it did go back together but i wonder if i ddnt put it back together right

Chris Ongoing: Hi. I have no hot water on the shower but there's hot water in the sink. If i change this would that fix the problem?

Luis lopez: Thank you for posting. I followed your instructions and with the exception of the lower cartridge being stuck in ( I used two screwdrivers to get it out) all went flawlessly.

isolabella: Thanks to your video, I was able to do this myself in under five minutes. No more trickling water. Yay!

trueplumbinator: Cool glad I could help u

trueplumbinator: sorry i just wrote back man but ive been down with the flu

Agustin Zimmerman: Thank for the info it was very useful.. Made it easy for me.

trueplumbinator: Debbie glad I was able to save you 500 bucks. I can't believe a plumber was gonna charge u 500 anyways wow. U were about to get ripped off. Glad I could help.

trueplumbinator: good luck yobentley,let me know if you need anything else and thank you for subscribing to my channel

jrewen: Thank you so much for this Jeff - I can't express my appreciation enough for you filming this and teaching me what to do!

Kevin Apgar: Plumbing is not my thing but this video really helped immensely! Thank you so much. My son's tub doesn't leak anymore.

Natural809: Thank you for posting this tutorial it help me out a lot thank you again!

WrightUnfairAdvantag: Very helpful and well explained! I like your style! Thanks, and best wishes to you! God bless!

gottamovegottadance: Exactly what I needed to know. I'm going to buy the part and attempt the replacement. Will let you know how it goes.

Bob Solberg: Mr.Trueplumbinator - Just a quick note of thanks for the instructive video and even more importantly your response to my question. I was quite franlky surprised to get a response. And yes - you were spot on with your follow-up advice. The problem is solved and with your video and advice I saved a few bucks. Thank you again for your help!

XDarkDioX: Your review was good. However, in the end you stated that if leaks persisted to remove the unit and flush the hard water deposits out. Well, I did that but what the real problem was the unit I installed was defective. I returned the no name brand back for a Delta brand (same cost) and it worked without a hitch. Also, I had TERRIBLE hard water deposits inside the water value which was EXTREMELY difficult to remove the unit. I had to soak the hell out of it with WD40 inside of the unit-almost quit

trueplumbinator: Thanks Jeff for your comment.yeah their is a difference between the blue and gray cartridge, glad I could help

trueplumbinator: Lori did u change out cartridge itself ? It sounds like u changed springs and rubber seals that go in valve behind cartridge. But u gotta change cartridge also. Also sometimes dabre and hard water deposit could be in valve also so u could try pulling cartridge and flush valve let water run through valve for a bit. It sounds though u just changed springs and not cartridge

Fu Uk: Great Video - very helpful

Scott Bird: Great video. Exactly what I needed. Changed the cartridge and shower no longer leaks! Thanks so much for posting.

Bob Bickmeyer: Well done video. Thanks.

Myr381: Thank you for posting this but can these directions be applied to a single handle shower cartridge?

Jeff Schreibman: Thanks for the video helped me a lot! Also learned pre 2006 uses blur cartridge and post 2006 uses grey cartridge or ur pipes will shake after being installed

allentbanas: It raised the shower head up to the point where I didn't have to crouch down to get my hair wet. That's what I was looking for. here is the link to it in case anyone is interested: amzn.to\18LRPOX

Michael Evans: I got all the way to where the o-ring was. it would not budge. As I turned it the entire housing was turning and I didn't want to break the copper pipes that attach to the back of the housing. What to do? I called a plumber for tomorrow. I don't want to make a bad leak worse.

trueplumbinator: thank you for watching my videos,let me know if i can help with anything else

Luis lopez: Thank you!

trueplumbinator: @isolabella I'm glad u were able to use my video in ease let me know if I can help with anything else, thanks again

Remembering 1992: 17 million views for a video completely void of significance and meaning. Billions invested annually to watch grown men behave like children on a football field. Meanwhile the mortality rate from most types of cancer is INDENTICAL to numbers from the 1930s. Why are things that cannot possibly help us so celebrated, while the exploration of science and pursuit of knowledge and progress considered so boring? Something is fundamentally wrong with our priorities.
