Pressure drop after replacing faucet seat
I was talking about this with my wife today and she said the cold pressure dropped after the replacement of the seat some 9 months ago, but it just didn't matter as much as the hot, which was working fine.
The original seat (no longer have them) was flat where it hit the washer but the new one, at least the hot, is semi-circled. That may be what is causing the knob turns to be different, from what my wife explained.
I suspect I just have the wrong seats for these faucets and will take the box to Home Depot this week and look for something that matches the threaded side but is flat and has a larger hole.
For my edification, if the seat box says
7/16" x 24 THD
Which of these means what? I'm guessing the 7/16" references the inside-pipe thread portion but I've no idea what the 20 or 'x 24 THD' means.
