Why would the hot water side of the bath tub faucet cause the water line to vibrate when turned partially on?
Answer . If you have the old style seats and washers type shower valve, the water is trying to squeeze between the seat and the washer. If it was air, it would whistle. Water… hammers. Usually high pressure contributes to this effect. The only way to solve this problem is to replace your shower valve with a cartridge type shower valve. Or,reduce the pressure in your house. . Or do like my wife told me to do. Our pipes in the bathroom sink have been vibrating for months now. We researched everything possible. She said " try turning up the valve a little". Guess what? it worked. Do the 'KISS' method.(Keep It Simple Stupid)
What would be the cause of no flow of hot water to the shower via the head and faucet when cold water flows to the faucet?
Answer It could be a blocked pipe or a damaged valve. Do you get hot water in other areas of the house? If not, check the valve on the water heater. If other parts of the hou…se get hot water, replace the hot water valve assembly or repair the hot water valve. If you have hot water at the sink, but not in the shower, the hot water side of the shower valve is clogged by something like rust. Esp. if you have had the hw heater replaced. and you have galvanized pipe instead of copper. Esp if your sink aerators get clogged by rust particles. Search for fixing Delta faucets, open up the valve, and flush out the rust. Buy a kit for replacing parts while you have it opened up.
Answer . The valves were installed improperly.
\n. \n The Main \n. \nUnless someone has done an unusually great job with the plumbing the only shut off will be the main house service.\nsearch around the house usually… near the outside faucet and if you find shutoffs turn on the faucet slightly and close the shutoffs using trial and error to find the right one. if it doesnt work use the good answer above. lots of luck.
Answer . Your cartridges or cartridge must be bad or blocked with debris. Remove, clean and replace if necessary.
What can be done to stop hot and cold faucet screaching noise when turning separate bathroom sink faucets on and off?
Answer . You may need to install a water hammer arrestor. This is just a tube that is installed so that it has air in it. The air will act like a spring to soften the boun…ce or harmonics that can happen when water is flowing.
by Faucetman886 . Maybe it's the cold weather or the fact that so many people are out of work and have time on their hands to listen for it but it seems this weeks discuss…ion forums are full of questions about plumbing noises, most specifically water hammer. Water hammer is that thunking, clunking, clanging noise you get when you turn a faucet off or the washing machine switches cycles. Plumbing can make many weird noises which can have many causes and; sometimes, they're not easy to isolate and fix. The following are some of the common issues. 1. Water hammer . This noise doesn't happen with flowing water, so if it occurs while your water is running, it isn't water hammer. As I mentioned at the beginning of this article water hammer happens when you turn OFF a water suddenly. Shutting off the water suddenly sends a pressure or shock wave down the water line through the water shocking the pipes and creating the hammer noise. These shock waves travel faster than the speed of sound and can exert very instant pressure. Over an extended time, water hammer can damage pipes, valves and eventually weaken pipe joints. This may in itself cause additional problems as in #6. Most newer homes have devices called hammer arresters that are air filled chambers connected to the plumbing that let the pressure wave dissipate harmlessly into a cushion of air. These arrestors can become filled with water and stopworking. If the banging in your home has been happening forever you may not have one. To correct this you must drain your house of all the water in the pipes.. Turn off your water to the house at the main shut off valve or at the meter. Find the lowest faucet in your house, often this is an outdoor hose faucet, and open it. Then open the faucets that is in the highest place in the house. Let the low faucet drain for 5 minutes or until it stops dripping, whichever takes longer. Close all the faucets and turn the main back on. When you turn the water back on the pipes will have air in them and will sputter until this air is dissipated don't panic. 2. Faulty toilet fill valve (ballcock) will cause resonance sounds like a fog horn or a moan. It's easy to check. Close the supply valves to all the toilets. If the noise disappears, open them one-by-one till the noise starts again. Replace the ballcock in that toilet. If there are no shut-offs handy, sometimes you can locate the faulty ballcock by lifting up on the float ball while someone turns on the faucet that is causing the noise. 3. Bad faucet washer . If your nosie only happens when using a certain faucet the faucet washer may be loose or damaged. This can cause it to flutter in the water stream causing various sounds To repair this tighten the screw to the washer in the faucet stem. If this doesn't work, then it's time for a new stem assembly. If your dishwasher or washing machine is causing the noise you may have a worn out solenoid fill valve. 4. High water pressure can cause a variety of problems including these noises. It can also damage toilet valves and other devices connected to the plumbing. I saw an issue on a forum last week where water pressure was cited as the cause for a hand held shower hose coming loose. If you're on a water system, ask your neighbors if they are having similar problems or simply call your water supplier and ask that they come out and check your pressure settings. If you have a well you should have a water pressure meter. If the pressure is above 60psi you may want to adjust your pressure reducer 5. Pipes rubbing or bumping inside the walls because they aren't strapped down well or because the stud pass through holes are too small or off center. If this is the case they've probably made the sounds since the house was built.. If this is the problem you will have to call a plumber to make the repair. This can be far too complicated for the average homeowner/do-it-yourselfer to handle. 6. Pressure regulator . If you have a pressure regulator on your main water line it may be faulty. If your pounding sound happens while the water's running, it happens at more than one faucet, turning on other faucets changes the cadence, the pressure changes with the pounding, While the noise is happening, check to see if it is coming from the regulator. If so, the regulator may need to be replaced. I hope this information has helped you track down your plumbing noises and given you enough info to effect a repair yourself, or better yet I hope you get a new job which takes your mind off the issue and gives you the money to pay someone to come and fix it..

Your shower pours hot water out of the faucet even when off and turned to cold with the knob Any ideas on what this could be?
You don't say whether you are referring to a single handed mixer or an individual faucet. If a mixer then the o rings inside have probably worn away and need to be replaced. I…f a single faucet then either the washer needs replacing inside the tap or the gland nut (if have one) needs to be serviced. Dont forget that in a single knob faucet, there is also an adjustment to be made for the hot water temp. that comes from the shower when turned to hot....it is a sort of dial in system remove the knob handle with a Philips screw driver and see where the settings are if too high adjust down a few clicks(notches).
Your cold water faucet handle broke in your tub and shower and after you replaced it now cold water continuously comes out of faucet how can you fix this?
Remove the handle, turn off the water with a wrench and reatache the handle in the correct position. Good Luck
Usually air in the lines or possibly worn washers in the faucets.
Your most likely cause and the easiest and cheapest to repair is probably related to a bad washer or O ring on the washer cartridge stem. This is how I fixed the problem in my… kitchen sink about 20 minutes ago. Shut off the water supply to the sink if it is a single line or to the affected faucet if it is a a two line system. Next, remove the noisy faucet and cartridge assembly. Unscrew the cartridge completely from the hold down nut and inspect the washer on the bottom of the stem as well as the o ring about midway up. replace both of these with the appropriate size and set the cartridge aside for a moment. Next, take some fine steel wool (I recommend using an SOS pad) and carefully clean the threads and the seat on the hold down nut. Do the same to the threads on the stem and pay particular attention to the area at the bottom of the stem as that is where a lot of residue and calcium buildup can occur. Now put the cartridge assembly back together and replace the assembly in the sink. Voila...problem solved and it didn't cost an arm and a leg to have a plumber come to your house.
The handles you twist to turn on the water are connected to valves. Those valves have hard rubber washers which seal them shut. Those washers wear out. They are easy to replac…e. The water to the house or apartment must be turned off before they can be replaced. It takes about two minutes to replace the washers. It can take days to get someone to turn off the water to an apartment so the washers can be replaced. New York City loses thousands of gallons of water each day to leaky washers. Apartment owners pay a fixed fee for water. They do not bother to pay to have washers replaced.
Most tubs do not have a shut off in the supply lines to it. You have to shut the main off where it comes into the house.
Of course, by turning the hot water faucet to the direction where the flow of hot water increases, with no specific direction depending on the style of the knob or faucet, but… normally the hot water faucet is on the left and hot water flow is left , usual case to make water flow increase is towards the right, but this varies nowadays that there are so much styles of faucets.
