    Just to close this thread, Waltec (originally an old Canadian owned company) advised me today that parts were not available for my "Waltec 20".

    In fact, over the weekend as I was playing with it,...

    Hey nestork ... thanks very much for the detailed suggestions on how I should proceed. I didn't know how to connect with Waltec to try to find parts, but you've explained how I can. Thanks again.

    I fussed with my faucet some more. It appears to me that the areas in the valve body on the left and right side (where I assume the springs and seals are) must be permanent in this faucet. Of course...
  4. I'm finally getting around to doing this repair....

    I'm finally getting around to doing this repair. The faucet is actually an old Waltec (/Delta) singler lever kitchen faucet.

    The instructions I found and referred to in my original post, don't...

    Thanks for the hint/clue Jimbo. I Googled 'Delta' and 'old kitchen faucet repair' and found a hit with pictures and instructions that looked familiar, from the last time I repaired this faucet - ...
  6. can anyone id the make of this single handle kitchen faucet?

    Here's a shot of the handle insert on my kichen's single handle faucet. It needs to have some work done on it's cartridge ... the problem is when it's turned to the full hot position (i.e....

    Good points for me to keep in mind. Thanks Jim. I'll do as you suggest ... and also try to make sure that if an updated trim kit look is ever discussed at some time in the future, to make sure the...

    Ha Ha ... good one. I had to Google to see some old Get Smart tv clips to remember his catchphrase, but it came back to me when I did.

    I normally read and re-read the installation intructions for...

    Thanks JW, I just dry fitted the trim and I can see now why they suggest 8" min. The valve trim on my model (not the same trim kit as shown in the sketch I attached) is actually taller than the one...
  10. Delta MultiChoice Universal valve body (R10000) and length of drop to spout

    As indicated in the subject line I have a Delta MultiChoice Universal valve body (R10000) that I'm installing. While checking out some other final detail questions I had before I finalize my solder...

    Thanks Jimbo. I hadn't thought that far ahead in terms of putting up the wall boards first, but I can see your point. Another reason to go with the direct to stud installation.
  12. Thanks as well for your reply, dlarrivee. I...

    Thanks as well for your reply, dlarrivee. I understand your point. The Sterling instructions effectively say that at the top of the wall pieces where you've attached them to the studs, you should add...
  13. Thanks Terry. Your response makes me much more...

    Thanks Terry. Your response makes me much more comfortable with the way I had been planning to install the unit ... but I still had a little nagging doubt in the back of my mind.
  14. tub/shower surround walls - attach directly to studs or install wallboards first?

    I'm in the process of helping my son redo his bathroom. (It's been stripped down to the bare studs and we're now in the process of putting it back together).

    It's not going to be a "Taj Mahal"...

    above floor drain vs below floor drain

    I'm starting a project to redo a 2nd floor bathroom in a very old house that had an old clawfoot tub with exposed water supply and drain pipe where the drain pipe connected to a trap under the floor....

    Thanks very much hj and jimbo, for both of your comments. They help.

    The reference to a "deep shower valve socket" (a tool I don't have) gives me a better idea of how a plumber would go about...

    Just "bumping" in the hope that someone might see my post from a couple of days ago and have any suggestions ... or ... am I snookered in terms of suggestions for a "safe" way to replace the washer...
  18. how to fix a simple drip in an old 3 handle tub/shower tap set

    My mom's house was built close to 60 years ago and the bathtub taps have a small but annoying drip that she wants to have fixed. It should be just a simple case of removing the valve stem and...

    Thanks for your reply Jim. I ended up sending GSW a "Contact us" type email after I saw your response that confirmed my own thoughts. GSW's email response this afternoon, confirmed your thoughts...
  20. from a combustible viewpoint what kind of flooring can a gas water heater sit on

    I have a GSW gas water heater (model GG40S38ES-02). I think it's referred to as a direct vent model (i.e. it has vent ducting that goes into a chimney and so heat is vented up through the roof).

    To Willie Two ... Thanks. I'll give this a shot as a work around ... I'm getting tired of getting my hand wet :-)

    Ah - you've added a fly to the ointment :-) Thanks for the additional input. The top nut is so corroded that it's not particularly obvious that it even is a nut, but it logically must be. I'm now...

    There's no evidence of the original lever style handle. I can't imagine what might have made someone want to take it off, at some point in distant history. It is in a spot where in might have...
