    Any health risks from drinking softened water, or softened water filtered through an RO filter

    Reason I'm asking, for the point of use RO under the kitchen sink, I had to use a special faucet that limits leaching metals from the agressive RO filtered water passing through. Some family members developed GERD around around the time these filters were installed. Just wondering if there can...

    RO filter keep or remove

    Thank you. That’s very helpful. BTW the recent TDS 288 before RO and 8 out of the tap. Is that good? I had purchased a dual faucet that eliminates the need for a separate tap at the counter. (See photo). Supposed to be specifically designed for aggressive water that prevents leaching of...

    RO filter keep or remove

    A couple of years back, I installed an RO point of use under the kitchen sink after installing a whole house softener. Thinking I would remove the salt and chlorine and any other chemicals passed through the municipal water supply. It’s time for a filter change and I have a minor repair issue...

    Here we Grohe again, back flow preventer stuck in valve body

    I was afraid of scoring or scratching the interior of the valve so I bought a non scratch pic set, it was too flexible and didn't work. I used a right angle metal pick and filed the end flatter so it was less of a sharp point, That worked, thanks. The calcification from the hard water really...

    Here we Grohe again, back flow preventer stuck in valve body

    Finally got around to replacing the temp/valve cartridge. There are small plastic back-flow devices on the sides, inset into the valve body. The new valve came with replacements, so I tried to remove the old ones, since the years of hard water caused the control valve to fail. Only part of the...

    Shower faucet limited access to shut off on valve?

    Maybe I’m not referring to it correctly, the part to be replaced is the temp control valve/cartridge. 90+% of the control you get hot water only, so a balance of hot/cold your almost shutting the water off They are sending a free replacement but it’s back ordered They also responded about the...

    Shower faucet limited access to shut off on valve?

    Thank you for all the replies. I’m trying to simply replace the valve but wanted to keep all options open. GROHE said they would send a replacement for free, asking for the year and model. I sent the info and haven’t heard back from them yet. The reason it’s important to me to be able to...

    Shower faucet limited access to shut off on valve?

    Holds the trim plate. Of course that model has been discontinued, gee wonder why, bad design and the valve fails at the 6 year mark. At the time of purchase it was highly recommended. I remember researching it before purchasing it. What is a good all around reliable not terribly expensive...

    Shower faucet limited access to shut off on valve?

    Not sure I follow. You mean turn off the whole house water to remove that metal plate to access the stops? Then turn the water back on? If that’s it, still a bad design then

    Shower faucet limited access to shut off on valve?

    Same as in the photo above it, per instructions. I had to open the tile wall more on the sides, was able to angle a screw driver, but still. Poorly engineered. Needs a straight open line to the shut offs. I asked Grohe support, waiting for an answer back.

    Shower faucet limited access to shut off on valve?

    On my Grohe valve body 35 015, I recently had to bust out the surrounding tile to gain access the the valve body shut offs. Did that, only to find the slotted shut offs are partially blocked by the ears, see photo. The picture is taken from the side, so coming straight in to prevent stripping...

    Grohe Concetto shower faucet problem

    Bought on the internet, can’t find the receipt. Probably saved as a file on the computer which I no longer have What’s been confusing me is, I thought the trim kits available are dictated by what valve assembly you have installed So having the Concetta trim kit means I have certain cartridge...

    Grohe Concetto shower faucet problem

    Based on my paperwork, its 4767800. When I type in part number from the schematic, see photo. It looks similar but a different shape. Jeez, why can't they standardize components? https://www.plumbersstock.com/grohe-47678000-part-cartridge.html so this one then? not very happy with this...

    Grohe Concetto shower faucet problem

    Thanks for the reply, you said "The best thing to do is get the cartridge" So yes to replacing the cartridge? As far as calibrated, that was done at the original install. One last thing, is it part # 47678? I'm used to the Moen stuck cartridges, hopefully this will be easier

    Grohe Concetto shower faucet problem

    I installed a GROHE 14468EN0 Concetto shower faucet in 2015. It was 50/50 hot cold balance when installed. It was my kids bathroom, so I rarely used it. When using the faucet, to get a balance hot and cold, the lever is all the way to the almost closed position. So 90% of the range emits hot...
