    Sulfer Rotten Egg smell after running water....

    Sulfer Rotten Egg smell after running water....

    Usually they come in magnesium from the man.Two different styles in the photo also,are you installing two of them?You should also drain the tank and get as much of the deposits out of it as possible and even pull the boiler drain to flush out the big chunks.

    need help, please

    Replacing the gate valve with a ball valve will help,but why not just shut off the washer bibbs? Also replace the washing machine hoses with fluidmaster braided "no burst" washing machine hoses for peace of mind.;)

    Valve makes whistling or ringing sound

    Turning the valves down will just restrict the flow and not cure the problem.High water pressure affects every fixture in the house so check the pressure if it's above 80 psi,install a PRV and and a thermal expansion tank on the water heater.:eek:

    Grohe volume control... plastic linkage tube

    Europlumber is right,to much stress on the parts.Moen has the same problems on their widespread faucets.The stem could be to stiff or to much pressure when turning off the stem.These are almost a one finger type of system when turning off.
