    Another Moen retaining clip thread!

    Hoping a new post brings fresh ideas. I have a 25 year old Moen positemp bathtub /shower faucet. It's been dripping for years so I finally decided to tackle it. I had waited because there's no shut off valve and I was afraid to shut off the whole house in case I screwed it up. Got my cartridge...

    Need to replace a valve on a short PEX pipe- any hope to DIY?

    Hello - I found an issue with my water intake valve where there is a drip from the valve when the water is on. It drips from the right most side of the valve where there is a horizontal line/cutout. The valve seems to be one solid piece with no removable parts so I think my only fix for this is...

    M-Core, Does twin ell replace valve separation specs for no stacking leak?

    Hello, longtime lurker here with my first post! I'm a DIYer plumbing a tub/shower with Moen m-core parts. I had intended to follow the layout in the first image from Moen's online design guide, which caps the shower port and includes a twin ell. However, the instructions with my mixing valve...

    Change these Delta valves

    I need to swap these valves out but am not confident in the approach. I've replaced sink valves before.

    What valves to use for hot water cast iron radiators?

    I have a hot water cast iron radiator system. It has separate supply and return pipes. My kitchen had slant fins that never got warm. I do not want to rehash that issue. The kitchen had not seen heat since at least before 1998 I recently learned. In a desperation to troubleshoot I cut the 3/4...

    AAV Location or placement under Kitchen sink?

    In this situation, is the current location of the P Trap in relation to the AAV valve correct, or must the P-trap be below the base of the drain pipe?

    Shower Valve knocks and turns off water to a dribble HL - 40

    I have a glacier bay HL-40 shower valve that started acting up. (i assumed it was the valve) When I turn it from cold to hot it starts off fine and then at a certain point *clunk* it makes a clunk noise cutting off the flow of water and dribbling water out. I replaced the valve. Same issue...

    Valve hammering

    I have a five valve irrigation system. Four of the five work perfectly. One, when it "turns on" (in sequence, it is the third zone of the five) knocks/hammers unstoppingly until I shut off the zone. Since the system is at least 15 years old, I suspect that particular valve is the problem. I can...

    Replacing shutoffs on PEX-A

    I'm considering purchasing a production home that will be built with PEX-A. The builder appears to be using Accor shutoff valves, which I'd plan to replace fairly soon after moving in. But I could foresee an issue with the stub-outs being fairly short meaning simply cutting off the old valve...

    Identify this Delta shower valve

    I was wondering, could you identify this Delta shower valve? I am at my grandparents house. There are two of these valves paired with the Delta pull-down diverter spouts and Delta arms, one with a 5.5 inch Moen Engage with Magnetix showerhead and the other with a Moen Adler showerhead.

    Shower and tub buzzing sound

    Hi folks, my first post... Thanks for having me! I recently purchased a new house and both my shower and tub on the top floor are making a strange buzzing sound that comes and goes when water is running. It's only on cold to middle, not on hot. It's an american standard faucet, and I've...

    Danfoss T-11 Trim kit

    Well, I found myself if an unwanted position. I was doing some work to my shower and removed the handle and trim kit. I threw it away thinking I would get something newer and just update the look. Wrong. I can't find anything to use with this valve. Does anyone know where I can find a compatible...

    Pulse ShowerSpas, Unknown Shower Valve/Trim

    Hi there! My wife and I recently bought our first detached home! We bought a Moen Trim Kit for our upstairs bathroom, however, when the plumber we hired to install it (among many other things) came to do the work, he said he could not install it because he has never seen this valve before...

    How to plumb outdoor spigot for both softened and unsoftened water

    We are in the process of building a house and are starting to plan for installing a water softener. I have an outdoor water spigot that is connected to the house's PEX manifold system.

    Shower gets colder

    Hi, my question is when I start my shower I have to put it to almost 50% on the hot side. Then after 5 minutes the water gets colder (Luke warm). Then i turn the knob a little hotter, right after 5 min it gets colder again. What could be the cause of this?

    Phister Avante, Need to identify this shower valve

    I need to get the knob off this shower valve so I can tighten it up. The valve itself is tight and works well, it is only the knob that is loose, but I can't see a way to remove it. There is no brand identification anywhere on it. Nor are there any screws or other fasteners visible. If I...

    Will reducing drop from wall valve to tub spout be an issue?

    The printed instructions from Delta says 8-18" between a faucet valve and the tub spout when using a shower head and spout diverter. Can I shrink this distance to my liking since I've capped off the shower port on my faucet valve? (i.e. tub only, no shower). I've mocked things up so that my...
