Over 698,000 strictly plumbing related posts
Plumbing education, information, advice, help and suggestions are provided by some of the most experienced plumbers who wish to "give back" to society. Since 1996 we have been the best online (strictly) PLUMBING advice site. If you have questions about plumbing, toilets, sinks, faucets, drains, sewers, water filters, venting, water heating, showers, pumps, and other strictly PLUMBING related issues then you've come to the right place. Please refrain from asking or discussing legal questions, or pricing, or where to purchase products, or any business issues, or for contractor referrals, or any other questions or issues not specifically related to plumbing. Keep all posts positive and absolutely no advertising. Our site is completely free, without ads or pop-ups and we don't tract you. We absolutely do not sell your personal information. We are made possible by:
In the kitchen sink when I turn the cold valve on, it comes flying out of the kitchen faucet and it won’t turn off when I twist the handle so I have to keep the cold water turned off underneath the kitchen?My toilet in the second bathroom will not fill up with water or flush is this from the cold water being turned off in the kitchen? also, my shower handles got stripped, so can I just replace the stripped handles or do I have to replace the whole shower installation?
The kitchen faucet needs to be replaced or seal(s)/cartridge replaced. The stop valve under the sink should only affect the water supply to the faucet, not the toilet. The toilet has a probably had a bad fill valve or angle stop.
If the shower handles are stripped and the splines on the stems are ok, then you just need new handles.
