    All,

    My hot water won't shut off in our bathtub when I turn the handle to the closed position so I have to turn the all water off until I get this fixed. So far, I've replaced the stem assembly and rubber seat/spring with replacements from Delta but this didn't resolve the problem.

    I've read some some posts on the web that suggest I should replace the handle and the valve seat washer and I'm wondering if these would be appropriate next steps or should I just bite the bullet and buy a whole new faucet and hire a plumber to replace?

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks In Advance!

    Delta showers can usually be repaired. Perhaps show us some pictures. You may need help, but repairing the existing will save you from having to cut a hole in the front or back side of the wall to install a new valve.

    If your repairs did not work, then you did them wrong. Save the cost of a new faucet and just call the plumber to fix yours properly.
