    I just shut off the hot water. Wait about 60 seconds, waiting for the yell "DAD". They get the message. I usually have to do it a few times in a week. The problem seems to subside for a time.

    I'd just replace it when it becomes a real problem. Sounds like just one of the "quirks" of owning an older (although not all that old) home.
