How To Replace A Symmons Shower/ Tub Spindle And Diverter




What do you think about this video?

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. French: 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!

Nirlep Sanghvi: 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.

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.
