gary b: For some reason I couldn't get the new cartridge all the way in. I was using a delta 10347 replacement and had to use the old flat o rings instead of rounded. Then it went in. Great video.
Dawn W.: Not sure if you have a video on this already or not, but here's my other unlrelated plumbing question.... I replaced my garbage disposal 2 or 3 years ago and I swear the directions never said anything about using putty or tape, but I consistently have an occasional leak... nothing major unless I'm standing there using the sink for quite a while, but I can see mineral deposits up around the top of the outside of the disposal, so guessing that's where I need to clean and use one of those things... Gonna try and do my plumbing fixes this weekend.
Dawn W.: Better video than Delta's... loved the close up things pointed out. Trying this over the weekend. My one question on this, which I think has been answered, was did I need to add plumbers putty or tape anywhere, but it doesn't look like it at all.
Narrator007: Thanks for the very helpful video. I'm sure it will work wonders for me as soon as I can get my shower handle's screw to turn. For some reason it completely locked in place.
I have heard others recommend either heat, vinegar or WD/40 to loosen the screw, but I don't own a hair dryer or have either of those two substances on hand. Before I go out to buy some, is there any other method you would recommend, or additional advice?
Dreambigbeats Rap Instrumentals/Hip Hop Beats: 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.
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
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.
James McClure: Hi Plumbinator, after replacing the cartridge, I am getting no flow from the shower head. I removed the cartridge and verified that water is coming through the pipes when there is no cartridge. However when I have the cartridge installed I get no flow. When I turn the water off and attempt to remove the nut again, there is a large amount of air/water pressure ... to the point that the cartridge shoots out once I get the nut loose enough. The cartridge actually split into two... the blue part and the gray part, so now I have no idea which variant is the correct way to put them back together. I've tried all 4 combinations... and still nothing's working. Any ideas? Wish it was as simple as your video and the other's make it look. I called Delta, and they are shipping a new cartridge to me; however I'm wondering if something else is now the issue. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.
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!! :-)
John Darrell: Thank You , Your video was real informative for me.
Tamara Widrick: Very helpful! Thanks !!!
Zahid Khan: great video! ill give it a try once the part comes in from Delta this week.
Plumbinator12: Yeah I agree posi temp valves suck I don't know why anyone would want them either
hvacrdude1: mine is not pushing pressure... , i took it out and it had some sediments, but it seems cheesy... who the fk would put these pos valves in a home.. .besides some fkg hack.
Fu Uk: Great Video - very helpful
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!
mary carter: Thanks Jeff - we couldn't have done it without your video - never got any audio though so we would watch and pause and go do what you had showed. The instructions left out several steps on how to remove the old and your video walked us right through it. Thanks. Now I'm going to watch the one about how to tighten toilet seats with plastic bolts!! (and now our shower/tub is not leaking!!)
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
