Hundreds of times. In fact we have many apartment buildings in this area that have Mixet valves, and the crossover is such a serious problem thate the users at the end of the hot water line may never get anything other than tepid water. There is a replacement cartridge on the Internet that is designed similar to a Moen cartridge and eliminates the crossover problem.

: After installing a new water heater, it was discovered that a Mixet faucet in a nearby bath exhibited what the plumber called "crossover." That is, with the water to the house "on" and the cold water valve to the water heater "off," the new tank began filling with water flowing from the cold side of the Mixet valve, through the valve, and then flowing backwards through the hot water line to the new tank. A new Mixet cartridge did not fix the problem.

: Has anyone encountered this before? If so, I would very much appreciate any suggestions.

: Thanks
