Hi, I’m Phil Bridges, owner of Straight Arrow Repair. Ever want to know how a repairman fixes things? Well come with me, and I’ll show you how I solve problems. Let’s make things better together.

We’re going to open the American standard Rumson shower and single handle faucet and see what it’s going to take to put it in and install it in the shower that we have in there.

Owner’s manual like for car, shower ring, and halfway gasket. And other kind of ring. shower neck extension.

“That’s a shower head.”

I believe that is a shower head. We’re not going to use this because we’re doing a shower and I believe this will be the bathtub neck, downspout. Uh oh, yeah, we’re not going to use that.

“Well, you have to cap it off.”


“It’s pretty premium feeling, it’s heavy. One of the heavier ones we’ve had.”

This just up the top here. I believe it usually has it on the side somewhere. But nope, it’s just on the plastic right there. I’m going to pull this cap to access the valve.

“Then you can’t get it back on huh.”

Not the same has these grooves that it slips onto. That’s for the showerhead I believe, yep.

“Nope, it says up there. And the hot is on the left?”

Should always be on the left. The handle.

“I just do a left, a left, right to right.”

And we’ve got some screws, an allen wrench for the handle maybe the Allen screw, an extra one I guess. hmm. I don’t know what this brassing is, but we will find out by reading the instructions all right.

“Don’t get it off balance.”

This is Phil Bridges, if you like what you saw and think it might be helpful to somebody else, push that like button and let other people know what you and I know, and we’ll work together toward making a brighter future. By the way, we’re not Amera-Can’ts, we’re Americans. See you next time.
