    Sorry to revive an old thread, but I just had to thank Jimbo for this excellent advice. I had a stuck bonnet nut on a Delta 1400 shower valve. I needed to switch out the cartridge due to a leak....

    Well, I took the cartridge to my local plumbing supply and they didn't have a match. Referred me to another shop further away. I guess I will try that and then give up. I really wish the manufacturer...

    Thanks for the quick reply. I've never heard the term "execution" with regards to a faucet, though. Are you talking about the part under the handle or under the faucet (where the water comes out)?

    How do I stop this faucet from leaking?

    Hi, I have a leaky faucet that I guess probably needs a new cartridge or seat washer or whatever this faucet uses. However, I can't get to the "guts" of the faucet handle. When I take a handle off,...

    Rocking toilet

    Hi, I had a toilet that would rock forward sometimes when I sat down on it. I loosened up the nuts and shimmed it in two spots in the back. Then I tightened up the nuts and all is well.

    You may be right. It does say "Cadet Flush Right" on a sticker underneath another sticker on the box. Odd that they don't make it more obvious.

    So it sounds like I'm creating a potential problem if I do this. I was only going to do it for appearances anyway, so I don't think it's a good idea now.

    Thanks a lot! So I'm going to trust Toto and assume that colonial white would be even more off than the cotton. I guess I'll look for some other seat.
