Question
I am getting no water from my new moien bathtub faucet,new install

Answer
Dear Floyd,

   I would need quite a bit more information in order to help.  My first impulse though would be to check that there aren't any valves turned off... usually, when I install a new fixture I will install shut-off valves in case there's ever a problem and I need to turn off the water.  Sometimes these get overlooked when you try to use the fixture for the first time.

Expertise

I am experienced at troubleshooting and solving all types of plumbing problems. Issues related to specific manufacturers fixtures and specifications though are beyond my field of expertise. I have dealt with problems in both rural and urban areas, and with water supply and drainage systems. Plumbing issues can be very obscure... such as odors, stains or occasional seepage. I have even had to chase rats from a customer's sewer line.

Experience

I have 25 years experience dealing with plumbing systems (which also includes hot water and steam heating systems). My main expertise is in diagnosing and solving problems. I have worked in construction and installation of new systems but do not regard myself as an expert in that area.
