    finally someone who can explain things. The problem I’m having is when i shut the hot water off in the tub it still drips out of the spout, almost like it was turned to hard because it seems to have bottomed out on the hot water faucet. I have a 3 faucet tub,middle one is for shower.

    Do you mean shower head and not “the sink”? If so, then the valve you replaced for the tub may not be meant for the “diverter” position – the middle handle location which controls water going/not going up to the shower head. A hot water or cold water valve will not work in the “diverter” position, only a “diverter” valve will work in the “diverter” position. If I’m not understanding your problem right, please clarify so I can help. Thanks and sorry to be so slow to reply.

    @reesecup888 – Thanks for the question. Does the water “running from the faucet part” come out the tub spout or out the faucet itself? Maybe all you need is to do what I showed on the video. However, you may have to rebuild or replace the valve seat & valve stem to solve the problem. If you replace the valve stem, make sure you buy a ‘diverter valve stem’, not a hot or cold water stem. Also, if you rebuild or replace, be sure to replace the valve seat, too. Hope this helps.

    Hi, would that be the same problem with the shower head, when I turn it on it doesn’t go to full shower water is still running from the the faucet part.

  • MrLibertyLover says:

    @ratulloch1 & docbrown119 – Thanks! I’m glad it was helpful to you.

  • MrLibertyLover says:

    @vietsoft3k – Okay. I’ll take that into consideration if we do another video of the sort. Thanks for the tip!

  • MrLibertyLover says:

    @msbuckeye2u - Yes, you can replace the faucet handles. A place like Home Depot or Lowes would have them.

  • docbrown119 says:

    worked like a charm! many thanks!

  • ratulloch1 says:

    great job!!

  • vietsoft3k says:

    nice job, if you had more light it would be perfect, thanks for sharing

  • vietsoft3k says:

    probably someone was playing a combat game in the background, lol

  • msbuckeye2u says:

    Can the handles be replaced with different handles ?

  • shackadoodledoya says:

    good work..but always turn off main water and use a backup wrench on that valve so u dont break anything. lookup how to properly use a backup wrench.
