George Ford: My friend install the same value but the cold is now the hot and the hot is now cold how can l fix it
Michael LaPierre: Excellent! Thanks for compacting the info into a quick video!
Robert Simon: Great video, helped tremendously!! Thanks.
timittens mittens: My issue began when I turned off the water but a little bit kept leaking. I have been following all your steps but when I go to turn the water on and move the handle so that water will flow, very little water flows, it's like I am blocking something. I am getting very frustrated, any tips would be appreciated .
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.
Forsoicanspeak same as first: my valve has a part on it that I can not remove - dont know HOW
it is part DF-6
remove the handle, the decorative plate, then part DF-6 is there and I can not remove it, dont know how - it just spins and spins and spins (clockwise and counter clockwise) - if I were able to remove it I could replace my diverter (the goal)
DF-6 is "un removable" because it has no threads and is in the way of continuing my repair
how do you remove it?!?!?!
there have got to be at least 20 (or more) videos on Symmons shower valves and NONE have mine which has part DF-6 - I need to remove DF-6!
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!
