Whats your go to shower valve that you install, and why?
I see you started drinking early tonightwhy dont you clean your shower . your toilet probably looks worse. you are probably one of those slobs that complain about the extra charge for having to put my face by your nasty uncleaned toilet. dont worry , i took a couple of towels out of your cabinet, covered your toilet, fixed it and then folded them neatly and placed them back in your cabinet.
The customers toilet and countertops aren’t your work bench unless you cover it with a terry cloth towel or drop cloth.
We have extremely hard water here(up to 30gpg) and if you're talking single handle than a moen 1200 WITHOUT a PBS seems to be the best.........Have you guys noticed any valves that seem to deal with hard water better than others?
That's a very good pointThe advantage with moen is that the areas where the lime builds up are rubber on brass where as with most others the lime is building up between two, large, flat, hard, surfaces which makes them very difficult to pull apart once the lime has cemented them together.
Moen 1200 cartridges might not last the longest but it's not really about how long until they fail, it's about the way in which they fail. If a cartridge last 10 years but then you have to change the whole valve because you can't remove it you'll find you'd rather have a cartridge that only last 5 years but you can actually replace it.That's a very good point
