In response to Re: Mixet TubStems
: I work for an apartment complex that has mixet tub faucets. We are getting crossover(only hot water through both sides)through all lines. a plumber told there was a super-duper mixet stem that would eliminate this forever and would last forever.
: My question is does this stem exist and if so where can i get one.Also,how can I keep this from happening again? Thank you

I doubt a stem would correct this problem, if it did, you would need to replace every stem with the super duper type.
It seems like someone is leaving a faucet open while shutting a diverter possibly or there is a point of use water filter attached to a faucet and the operator is shutting the filter off and leaving the faucet handles in the open position. There are a few other scenarios as well that could cause hot/cold mixing.
