  1. I enjoyed watching your very informative video. I was in search of a video to learn how to fix my bathroom faucet and came across this. My husband was a preacher also. I was wondering if you might have another plumbing video. The water will not shut off the way on both faucets in the tub. They are so worn that they no longer stop turning, but just go around and around. I probably need to replace the stem, but I’m not sure if I have the skills to do it. (note: I have replaced pipes under the sinks and fixed the toilet, so I do have some very basic skills with tools and am still learning. 🙂
    You have a very interesting blog!

  2. Peggyann7,

    I’m glad that you found the video helpful!

    The problem you have with your bath tub faucets could be one of two things: 1), it may indeed be that your stem is stripped out. If that is the case, it will be a more complicated fix. 2) Or, it could just be that your handles are stripped. This has occurred to us several times, and is very easy to fix. Simply remove the handles by unscrewing the screw that is hidden under the decorative cover on the end of the handle. Then pull the handle off. Replace the handle with new handles, screw the screws back in, and – wala! – your handles should work just fine.

    Let me know if this works!
