|In response to Re: Bad Shower Valves?|
If the old valves were not Price-Pfister, then the PP parts should not have worked, or may not ber working properly, and that can be part,or all, of your problem.
: Help!!! I had a tub/shower that always had a slow drip. You had to turn the cold valve off first before the hot water or else it would drip slowly even though you tightened both vales closed. I figured it was a seal in the valve stems. I then replaced the valves in the tub/shower and also in another bathroom shower. A total of 4 valves were replaced. I have no idea as to the the brand of faucet the old ones were. I picked up two of the Price Pfister replacement kits and what I thought would be O.K. turned out to be a mystery. Here's what is going on...
: On the tub/shower[combo hot/cold with shower diverter on tub spout], the everything works O.K. then I hear a loud 'Klunk' noise like the hammering of the pipes. Once this happens, the cold water side drops down to a dribble so you have just hot water coming out. If you open up the cold side more, it takes approximately 1/2 turn to see any results and then it's like a waterfall. The water just flows too much and then you have to back it off to reduce the cold water flow. This has lately become a problem...don't like getting burned by the hot waterfall.
