|Only if you have the CASH$$$|
|He doesn't know how to do that?|
|That is exactly what Cheryl is afraid of.|
|Cheryl the Hulk broke the handle.|
It started with the handle finally falling off the bathroom shower. Goodness knows how old these fixtures are, but the handle had stripped out and needed replacing. I was impressed that the hardware was able to be removed so easily...and this got the ball rolling.

|Cold Water side.|
|Hot water side.|
|Cold water seat|
|Hot water seat|
Looking at the Seat. ( the small part in the back behind the stem) I could see that it appears corrosion is interfering with the O Ring Seal. Comparing it to the Hot water side, They do not appear exactly the same.
I'm mostly impressed that I had only spent 85 cents on a new O ring ( that was not quite right) and did not flood the bathroom or break anything. So I consider this a "WIN" for The Great Ethan Allen. Who needs a medal? I have the knowledge and self satisfaction that I'm a Winner! In the foreign field of plumbing...while having no formal training or instruction. Hurray for ME!
And that is why I'm a DIY-er. Solving problems without making them worse brings its own reward that no one else could possibly understand. If you have read this far and are asking, "What's the big deal?" then I doubt I could explain it any better. And you probably have never DIY-ed.
