Ron H: I have had a leak for a long time & finally found the leak coming from the diverter. This was a great detailed video. I purchased a complete new valve and took out the parts to rebuild. Thank you.
Steve Kidd: This video is great - I keep getting a leak through the middle of the diverter when I replace it and test the water (similar to 4:35 above). I thought maybe the o-ring wasn't sitting against the valve but I got it pretty good with a wire brush. I even went to the store and got a another o-ring thinking I got a faulty one, but no dice. I've got pretty acidic water with lots of iron and am starting to think it could be corroded. Think it's time for a completely new valve, or any other ideas?
gpvolk48: Thanks for posting this. Spent $20 in parts and saved $150+ in plumber's fees. Supply shop was out of 4 in 1 tools so I used a large hex wrench and an easy out to remover the diverter valve. Worked great.
mcneile3: Thank you this helped me with my project.
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
