I have a hot water leak in the shower which I am trying to fix. I
have done the following:
1) replaced the valve seat,
2) replaced the valve stems (American Standard compression valve
3) have checked that the seat is positioned correctly
Yet the leak continues unabated...I'm open to new ideas and
i had so many troubles with new parts that were no longer compatible i
bit the bullet and replaced the entire mess with a delta temperature
balance with flow control valve, my only regret i didnt do it sooner.
compare carefullt the old and new valve stems, i found the new made in
china ones were slightly different.
is the leak a drip or in the wall leak?
No, not grease. Water pressure will just squeeze it out.
You can get a small tube.
Get all the grease off first.
You can also use LocTite, one of the non-permanent types.
