Q. "The spring/seal/plastic insert parts with the V7059, in what order are they installed?"
A. The white plastic inserts go inside one end of the springs. Then insert this assembly with the white cap facing the incoming water and the rubber seal facing the cartridge. Adding a small amount of food grade silicone to the sides and top of the rubber seals is a good idea (do not use faucet lubricant).
Q. "What's the difference (besides a slightly different look) between the VP1964 Non-Diverter and the VP1965 Diverter cartridges?"
A. The VP1964 Non-Diverter cartridge is used for all Valley "new style" single control kitchen and lavatory faucets that do NOT have a hand spray attachment. The VP1965 Diverter cartridge has a diverter in it to divert water from the spout to the hand spray when the hand spray lever is pushed. The VP1965 Diverter cartridge is used on single control kitchen and lavatory faucets with a hand spray attachment except for the Valley Hi-Style series. The Valley Hi-Style kitchen faucets use the VP1964 Non-Diverter cartridge because the diverter is located in the base of the spout and not in the cartridge. Click here to compare each cartridge.
Note: The VP1964 Non-Diverter cartridge is also used for Valley "new style" bath/shower valves. This does not include the back-to-back or pressure balance bath/shower valves because a different style cartridge is used.
