How To Replace A Symmons Shower/ Tub Spindle And Diverter




What do you think about this video?

Eric Peterson: Would a 5/16 lag bolt be threaded correctly to extract the diverter?

Ben S: I plan to make this repair tomorrow, I got all the parts, but I couldn't find the "four-way" tool that you're using. What's the name for it?

Everything home repair: very good thank you so much.

Lee Hill: were do you find that 4 in 1 tool?

Will Keeler: Do you have a video that details the steps on how to replace the "seats"? You mentioned you replaced them but I didn't see how you did it in the video

Klauss Rantes: What's the name of this tool used to remove the handle. I am not familiar and am a newbie. I thought I heard "Chain lock." Would someone help please?

R Dixon: If the shower is leaking do you need to install a new inner seat every time? Or can you get by with just a spindle rebuild?

Sue Hunt: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! That damned spindle is OUT - I threw it in a bucket of CLR to soak for a few days (my water is hard and the stuff builds up in the spindle so it won't work.....now I have a spare ;) ) my boiler is primed and I'm about to have my first shower in a good 6 months! So excited!

T. v. E. Day: You make removing the diverter look easy :( I got the cap off, I even got the screw tool thingi but that baby is 20 years in there and stuck. Any advice?

skeatel: If the seat's won't come out what do u cut them out with?

Maxwell Chiu: Very helpful video.  Thanks for posting, and your time and expertise. 

mmoreria85: I just a question regarding the handle ever few weeks I have take the cap of and retighten the screw because the handle will become loose. Do you have any recommendations? A low strength thread lock?

Dean Crombie: Well I got the valve and put it in tonight, I get mostly hot water ?? and the valve has to be turned EXTREMELY hard in the off position to get the water to turn off. It came with a new washer. Having said that the old one that didnt work DID turn the water off. Any ideas. Thanks  Deano

Dean Crombie: Also could you tell me what that little brass screw is for on the outside of the large locking nut

Dean Crombie: OK thanks I ordered the part, should be here Friday, will let you know how I make out

Dean Crombie: I have a TA 10 cartridge in my Simmons Temptrol tub/shower set up. I omly get cold water, does this sound like the cartridge, the unit is only 6 years old and had not been used all that much ??
                                 Thanks in advance  Deano

TheDIYGuyDOTnet: +Thomas Deeny If your talking about the chrome cover that covers the spindle. There are ones that thread onto the packing nut. So just turn the chrome cover and remove. Some have a small metal nut that holds it in place. Loosen and remove the nut and then remove the chrome cover.

Jill Svirida: Is there any way to get that piece out on front of the diverter (2:13) without the 4 way tool?  That tool is $25.  An allen wrench perhaps?

FlyersFan: Did the replacement, thank you for this.  Stopped a really annoying drip.  I was hoping that it would help with the pressure but if anything it seems a little worse.  There is also more water coming out of the tub when the shower is running.  Any thoughts?  Greatly appreciate it.  SJ

David B (dbarselow): Hi DIY Guy please allow me to ask a question please. My question is the diverter on this faucet is it adjustable. left or right for control of the temperture of the water? My shower is not as hot as the rest of the house faucets, I can't even enjoy a good hot shower any longer. please reply a.s.a.p. Most apreciated.
