    Help w/ Crossover - Touch Faucets and Check Valves

    Follow up. Got my check valves today and installed them. I don't hear any crossover water in the touch faucets now. Initial shower tests were positive. I can not believe I have been chasing this for years and the solution was so simple. I don't remember if when I installed the delta touch...

    Help w/ Crossover - Touch Faucets and Check Valves

    For some reason... none of my supply lines on the touchless faucets have check valves. I ordered 3 pair of these to add to the supply lines. https://sloanrepair.com/products/in-line-check-valve-pair?_pos=2&_sid=9cdd9fe66&_ss=r thanks haeffnkr

    Help w/ Crossover - Touch Faucets and Check Valves

    I am not sure if there are compression fittings on any of the touchless faucets. I will check. I further tested and the problem is bigger than I expected but I dont know what it means :) If any of the 3 one handle showers are on hot and ANY of the 3 touchless faucets valves are hot/cold mixed...

    Help w/ Crossover - Touch Faucets and Check Valves

    Hi, I have 3 touch faucets, a couple of check valves and a return hot water re circulation loop. I also have other faucets in the house with a tankless hot water gas heater. Recently the masterbath shower started showing a crossover hot water issue. I just replaced the Moen one handle shower...

    Copper or PEX or Sharkbite for a water heater install?

    Thanks guys. I will have to plan out as much as I can and pre solder some sections then take a day off work to cut, remove, mount and connect the new heater. Including iron pipe for gas. Any one want to help in the STL area :)

    Copper or PEX or Sharkbite for a water heater install?

    I can sweat copper that is no problem. I thought there would be a few more posts about the good in using PEX ... or maybe this discussion was had many times already.

    Copper or PEX or Sharkbite for a water heater install?

    Hi, I am going to replace my gas tankless water heater with a new different model. I will need to cut and redo the copper lines. Is it easier to use PEX/Sharkbite that I have no experience with or just use copper again? thanks in advance haeffnkr

    Moen shower faucet replacement - one hole? - get a constant temp?

    JAD~Thanks for the update. Are you saying the Delta thermocontrolled faucet won't work in the linked rough in body? Amazon says it will. What about a simple 2 handle faucet in a shower? Won't that be the simplest best option?

    Moen shower faucet replacement - one hole? - get a constant temp?

    Thanks for think. I see that the valve can be installed into dual output or shower only rough in bodies. https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/product/T17T438.html Assuming these faucets work, the reviews are positive for the most part, why would this be any better than a 2 handle setup and...

    Moen shower faucet replacement - one hole? - get a constant temp?

    I get that. It is amplified in the winter since the water is hotter and colder. In the summer mixing 120 degree water with 78 degree cold water is easier to control than 132 and 50 degree water in the winter. Thus .... I want a 2 handle full on hot and adjust with cold only in the shower...

    Moen shower faucet replacement - one hole? - get a constant temp?

    Oh? I have a 2 handle on my tub. Both were installed when the house was built 20 years ago. Yes I have a tankless water heater on the far side of house from this shower. That fluctuates a bit in this shower. That my wife and I struggle with.

    Moen shower faucet replacement - one hole? - get a constant temp?

    Hi, I have a standard Moen mixer shower valve. In the winter it is hard to keep the right mix of water to keep a constant temp out of the shower head. Yes I could replace the cartridge again and maybe see marginal improvements. Wife is tired of always adjusting it back and forth in the...

    Why is water not hot coming out of the faucet on the far side of the house?

    Tell me more about what a cross over issue is? How does the water go from the hot side to the cold side in the pipes? thanks haeffnkr

    Why is water not hot coming out of the faucet on the far side of the house?

    No ... faucet goes up the wall to a shower head with no shut off on the head. Note I had the same issue on a 2 handle tub faucet next to the shower at the same time with the shower when I was testing things earlier. I believe that with 2 different faucets acting the same way at the same time...
