Hi Greg...I have a client that has leaking shower valves..she sent me a picture of one of them. Single handle control...rotating handle, fixed not levered. She does not see a manufacturer name...ie Delta or Moen etc. I know this is a long shot..but hoping to identify the manufacturer and pick up parts before showing up for the repairs. Any sites that you know of where I can reference a catalog of pictures to possibly identify the brand and parts needed?
By the Way...I just found your videos on YouTube...great stuff!

Well about two months ago my youngest son got one of those "bouncy" balls stuck in our bathroom drain and we used one of those plumber tools that you pump up to build air in the chamber and then pull the trigger to blow the air pressure down the drain and I believe it worked because it began draining again.... Well last night my oldest son got sick with a stomach virus and the closest place he could get to to throw up was the same tub. I tried using the same device with that and it didnt work i also tried using a snake and was unsuccessful as well as a plunger..... also now when we used the sink in the same bathroom the water will back up into the tub! I am willing to try ANYTHING to get this solved without having to call a plumber, please any advise you have please tell me!
Greg, you have a great webiste. Thanks for much for the information as I am learning a lot from you. I do have a question. I have a basement and the toilet down there is stopping up and I am also having some water back up into the tub. From what I have learned from your videos it sounds like I may have a main drain blockage. Is renting a rooter tool from home depot a good way to clear this? The clean out is right outside of the basement door so it should be a fairly short and straight shot to the toilet. Also, I out some Rid-Ex in a toilet and flushed it per the instructions. Dont know if it is coincidental but I have had 3 toilets stop up since doing it. Do you recommend using Rid-Ex?
