Anybody use this?
Need to replace 17 series shower valve. Bonnet nut is stuck
Got a stuck bonnet nut. Tried vinegar. Now ledt with brute force, cutting it off, or trying m18 fuel heat gun to loosen calcium, but the Delta Faucet rep said I’d melt the cartridge plastic. Terry love plumbing website says you have to grab the rough in with a wrench but my rough in isn’t exposed enough to grab.
Are there “slim” wrenches to grab a barely exposed rough in?
Is the Amazon tool above worth it? I tried voice grips and got nowhere. The rough in was starting to twist and deform.
Do you believe the m18 heat gun is a bad idea?
Cut depth is an unknown so I am afraid to cut and damage the rough in threads.
Thanks in advance!
