    I have no water coming out of the cold water side and very little water coming out of the hot water side. I removed the cartridge and then turned the water supply on but still hardly any water came out of the mixing valve. I removed and examined the balancing spool but it looked good to me. What am I missing?

    If the balancing spool is a separte part, screwed in to the right side of the valve body, you do NOT "examine" it, you shake it to see if it "rattles". In any case, a bad spool can only affect one side or the other, NOT both of them
