I remodeled a bathroom a year ago. Recently the faucets started humming,
somewhat loudly, as you turn them on or off (very low volume). This is a price
pfister faucet, IIRC, with an internal rubber seal about 1/4" in diameter by
1/4" long. Any ideas on fixing this?
re: It's suggested too never have the angle stop valve at full on
Actually, it's suggested to never have any valve, other than in-line
lever valves, full on.
With any valve that you have to turn to operate, it is always best to
leave it about 1/4 turn "off". Should the valve and/or stem freeze
up, you want to have a some room in both directions to unfreeze it. If
it's cranked full open, you may never get closed, which could be a
problem in an emergency.
