  1. please help me out.
    My product is Price Pfister tub/shower faucet
    I have a single handle shower and tub faucet ,that needs repair for drip,leaks. I took off ceramic knob,took off wall flange, screwed off locknut, but cannot pull the valve out. What could be wrong? maybe it was sweated to copper water intake line.

    Appreciate a reply, as I cannot get Help at hardware store.

    • Hi T

      Yes, The shower body will be either “sweated” to the copper water lines or somehow plumbed into the water lines using pex or some other type of pipe.

      Please let me know if you need more help,


  2. Tswift,
    reading you question i can only conclude that you are trying to take the whole valve out itself? If that is the case, then yes, the water lines are connected to where you can not take the valve out. The stem, or the part that the handle attaches to is the part you need to get out, not the whole vavle itself. MAKE SURE WATER IS OFF TO HOME!! Like it reads, if not, youll get flooded. You took the face plate,(the big metal disc, held with two screws) now you need to figure out how to get the stem out. There should be usually, some sort of collar on around the stem, the same color as the face plate, chrome or water ever. Take that off, and then see if there is a bigger nut that you are over looking to remove stem. Once you get the stem out, take it to your local harware store, and try and match it up. If they dont have it, maybe they can order it for you, or you could probably find one online. Hope this helps, but pictures could help me answer alot more for you.

  3. Sounds like Calcium is holding the assembly inside the housing. They make a penetrating oil that can be used that will help assist in removing this cartridge. As mentioned there’s possibly a bonnet nut that holds this cartridge assembly in place, and once removed should gain access to the parts you’re trying to replace.

  4. I think Dunbar is right. If this is a single handle vavle, it will either have a large bonnet nut under the handle assembly or it will have a plate held on with a few screws. After either the bonnet nut or the retaining plate is removed, the cartridge can be removed. Calcium deposits can be a big problem in getting some old cartridges out. You can try penetrating oil or maybe CLR to loosen it up. Sometimes a torch is needed to heat up the valve so the cartridge can be removed. This will ruin the cartridge but chances are it needs replacement if it’s dripping. Good luck.

  5. TSwift,
    Let’s be really careful how we proceed here!
    If you go too far the wrong way you will be needing a plumber to replace the whole valve!
    Go to the following link and use the pull down menus to get a parts diagram of your valve.
    Once you get that post back with a link to the parts webpage and we’ll help you get the parts you need and get it apart correctly.
    I believe if you can wait to cure the problem for a few days that you have a lifetime guarantee on the valve and Price pfister will send you the parts for free.

  6. As Dunbar plumbing suggested, you are going to want to use CLR or something similar to loosen up the deposits. It may be a good idea to hire a professional if you feel uneasy about doing the job.
