Question– “The hot water bathtub faucet turns and turns allowing only a small amount of water out(a dribble). I’ve removed the handle and tried turning with a vice grip. It does turn but same thing. If I replace the whole assembly that comes out, will that likely fix it? If not, what next? I’m afraid I will not be able to get the old part back in without creating a leak if it it’s damaged beyond that.”
Answer– In our opinion, we first do recommend changing the whole assembly. That should work however, if that doesn’t work we would then recommend changing the whole bathtub faucet.
