I have a shower faucet that was dripping and had it repaired. It is now turning without stopping. The water turns off (most ot the time) but there is no "stop". What is involved?

Depending on the type of faucet in your shower, it may be the spline inside of the knob may be striped out (if it is a control valve for either the hot or cold water). If it is a single knob faucet which controls both hot and cold water, in most faucet knobs, a stop is a molded portion of the knob and on occasion will chip off. Hope this is of possible help.

sounds like you have stripped acrylic
handles. it is important to keep the
screws that hold the handles on tight.
if you do not when the handle(s) become
loose the small amount of play that
developes between the cogged shaft on
the stem and the female coggs on the handle
itself allow the the handle to strip out
over time.
