I replaced the washers and seats in the standard hot and cold shower handles
in a thirty year old house. I used 3/8" flat washers I already had. I also
had some tapered washers. Does anyone know which to use in this situation?
The old washers were so badly torn up they might have been either.
If you used the flat, did they work? The tapered are sometimes substituted
when you have a chewed up seat, not your case since you also replaced the
seats. IIRC some seats may require a tapered too. Not too sure about that
one. Go with what works.
