I have a Symmons Tremptrol mixing valve that I believe has either a bad or a cruddy diverter. I have bought the identical unit at Home Depot and I was trying to swap it out. Problem is - I can't get the valve, handle, knob etc OFF!
We live on a well- so I am guessing the threads are badly mineral encrusted- which is probably also the problem inside. I also bought a puller but the thing just does not want to budge! Eventually the puller arms pop off from underneath. Looking for any suggestions. I tried heating the knob with a hair drier until it was hot to the touch- and tapping it with a hammer, No luck.
Two pictures- one of the unit itself and one with the puller. Any suggestions on how to get this off would be appreciated! Thanks!
