Customer Question
A couple of min...

A couple of min. ago, Hi heard a loud screeching sound and water was coming out of the faucets in my tub. What could cause this

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

It just started about 10 min. ago The water was flowing full bore from the faucets without being turn on. I shut the water off at the hot water tank and eventually the water stopped running in the tub. The noice was bad.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Don't know, How extensive is it?

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so.
