  • Posted in thread: Thermostatic mixing valve help on 12-12-2017 at 10:44 PM
    Delta Monitors I believe are pressure balanced valves, Not thermostatic.There is a
    difference.The water supply to other fixture does not intentionally pass through the mixer
    valve but on occasion upon...

    Does sound like a venting problem. if the fixture in you bathroom share a common wall the often
    share a common vent through the roof. That vent through the roof is often the main vent
    directly from th...

    what kind of shower valve do you have. Could be the mixer in that.I would repair that first if
    you can't find a common mixer for the bathroom. Could be cold water is passing through valve
    even when iy...

    Thanks for the responses so far. So if I was going to do the auger myself, would it make sense
    to start at the cleanout in the basement or just go straight to taking the toilet off and go
    that way? Al...

    I see a hex nut in 1st photo, so that was probably design to come apart.My guess would be right

    Bad solder joint. Redo it or call someone you can solder.

    Not fond of needle valves but if it doesn't leak that should be okay.Not sure what you meant
    about being okay because the water is diverted through the extension tube.I have never seen a
    valve like th...

    You have a stoppage down the line. when you take a shower the line fills up.Then with no or
    little use the fluid drains out slow, leaving the solids to collect. You need to get it snaked
    out. If you d...

  • Posted in thread: HELP installing toilet shutoff. No one at HD can help! on 12-07-2017 at 01:17 PM
    The guys working in HD probably got that job restocking shelves. Then they put him on the floor
    to show people where to find what they are looking for.

I tried replying to you on the forum, but I am not "permitted" to write a reply. Don't know why since I was able to post in the first place. Just wanted to thank you for your suggestions! Makes perfect sense. I don't know why the plumber who installed the system didn't put in that valve in the first place!

@mjz Inexperience along with the cost of material and labor is why they did not do it.

Hi, I'm having the same problem - I could write the post, but now can't reply.

How do we get this fixed? I am unable to post - I wanted to include a photo of my current installation. It seems it should be easy to "reverse" the shutoff valve with the hose bib. In this way I would be able to isolate the loop, and then run hot water back through the loop out the hose bib and clear any air (if any...).

@Mr_David - I am unable to post in the forum for some reason. I was allowed to do the initial post (thanks for your reply!), but that's it. I want to post a picture so you can see how it looks currently.

I do suspect an air lock, but it's not 100% locked up. Water will flow through the loop, just painfully slow.
