How To Replace A Symmons Shower/ Tub Spindle And Diverter

What do you think about this video?

PoiJosh: Excellent instructional video, thank you for taking the time to make this.

redskins5926: I also wish I could get you a beer...this video was a tremendous help and I didn’t have to call and waste time waiting for a plumber thanks to you.

dskap201: You're the boss!
Thanks for this most informative video and you went right to the problem and kept it short.
Excellent job!

Jesus de la Rosa: Thanks for the video...sweet tool, where i can buy one of those

portcity34: This video was so helpful in replacing a volume spindle that refused to budge. However after changing the spindle, I found that it was the spindle itself that is hard to move within the tubular housing. How do I fix this problem? It's almost like the tube that holds the spindle shrank in diameter which would be impossible to happen. The spindle was almost impossible to remove, and I had to knock the new one with a hammer to get it to go all the way in. I do have well water and have been told it has sand in it. Is it a buildup in the housing, and if so, how do I clean it out so the spindle will move freely within the housing? Or am I looking at another problem?

sampsta: Question...would this apply if you were getting luke warm water in the shower but hot water everywhere else ?

Baupylypuab: Thanks for your video, short and to the point. I have some questions. How do you know which Symmons model you have? I have Symmons SafetyMix Ette. (no diverter) It might be old. Can I just replace the entire valve with a new Symmons valve? And would your video still show the whole process if I replace the entire valve? If yes, where does one get a new Symmons valve?

Yini Tang: Hi, thanks for the video, where do you get the four-way wrench?

Dan B: Skills the one part I need to see after the handle

Zina Saunders: Thank you so much for this. I have a problem with my Symmons handle: the handle for turning the water on and off is very stiff, it's very hard for me to turn it; once I wrestle the water on, it is otherwise fine. Would doing the replacement in your video fix this very stiff shower handle problem?

04jeepster: Very helpful. I bought a new T-10 spindle, but it would not seat so I ended up needing the T-12A cap assembly. It all works great now!

J. P. Freniere: You are a life-saver! I wish I had found your video before flooding the handle screw with LimeAway, penetrating oil, propane torch, etc. Your video gave me the confidence to just snap it off. Great, well paced production.

Christopher Murphy: I was able to replace my spindle and a long time leak is now fixed. Thanks for making the video as it helped so much

Hitu Patel: Thank you ..

Michael LaPierre: Excellent! Thanks for compacting the info into a quick video!

Robert Simon: Great video, helped tremendously!! Thanks.

Jim Wroten: Thanks for the video - my shower didn't work at all and replacing the TA-10 cartridge did the trick. Works better than ever. The only glitch was that the fitting holding it in was really tight. I had to put all my strength into it and was afraid that I would break the pipe. But it finally budged and the rest of the repair was easy. Thanks!

NJ: I have a similar valve in my bathroom which make a "thud" noise when closed/shutoff. Can you advise what can be the cause and what can be the fix for it ?

Jess Lison: Thanks! Just fixed my diverter! It's been on shower mode for well over a year.

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.
