    Must not have read the previous part of the thread. That was probably asking too much. :cool:

    You nailed it! And it was the FAR simpler solution (though the guy had a difficult time with his extractor).

    Man, I think it's safe to say I've given up skiing. Hurts too much when falling and...

    And to put this one to bed, doing the justification thing WAS a good idea. Did it, and it turns out to produce a better range or temperature results. It's really rather easy to do.

    UPDATE (for the proverbial record):
    The problem was, indeed, that galvanized reducer. The plumber removed it and the end of it was very rusty.
    This was a brand new reducer (and he only put it in...

    The directions pages do make it look easy to do (i.e., setting the stops and then aligning the handle). Given our water heater setting (120F), it seems like the second stop is the sweet spot and the...

    Thanks Terry. That's exactly what I suspected and I think I should leave it as-is (perfectly functional). The Hansgrohe rep seemed very certain but I really don't see why.

    I do have one of those...
  7. How critical is it to "justify" the control on a Hansgrohe trim on an iBox?

    As my plumber is returning to replace a bushing in new bathroom (see thread on burst of rusty water), I was chatting with a Hansgrohe rep that said that a lot of plumbers do not bother to "justify"...

    Thanks all. Much appreciated. We'll start with the bushing as that's easy (as Terry indicates).

    As for the early (good) comment about "significant length of galvanized pipe" somewhere hidden......

    Frankly, I don't recognize 1/2 of Bellevue anymore (though I don't get back up that way very often). I read that the old First Congregational Church sold itself off... with the property selling at...

    Thanks Terry. Maybe it's a dis-similar metal contact issue too.
    It's supposed to be changed out this week. Have my fingers crossed.

    Speaking of old hills, I guess they tore down the old BHS and...

    No bushings at the valve. Everything brass to PEX at the valve.
    As indicated, we used an iBox, so that does the diverter job and the temperature mixing. Pretty slick thing. But it seems that maybe...

    Thanks Terry. Here's hoping the easy solution (removal of the galvanized fitting will make the difference).

    Saw you at the last high school reunion (there in Kirkland). Here's hoping we all make...

    Thanks for the quick reply, Jim. I suspect there was a slightly careless use of an, on-hand, galvanized reducer for the tub filler. You can sort of see it in this photo. He plans to replace it with...

    Oh oh... with the installation of a new master bath, we have a problem with the water to the tub. It goes through a Hansgrohe iBox then PEX to a filler and a separate hand-sprayer. We now get a rusty...

    The iBox manual makes a big thing out of leveling (in both directions) the box when mounting. Once it's set, you can't fix that. I had my plumber tweak it a little bit better to perfect level...

    Yes, I was aware of the sound/noise issue but these pipes are in an area where it doesn't concern me at all (and I'll never really hear them). I was also aware of the ease...

    Cast Iron VS. ABS - replacement

    I've got a quality home built in 1970 that has cast iron DWV (including all rain-drains). Most of the regular sink/laundry drains, which are easily accessible, are 2" cast iron (all held together...
