Washfountain General Info

How can I order parts for my Washfountain? Where do I get them? My fixture has a serial number. Does this serial number mean anything?

Contact your local Bradley representative for assistance in ordering genuine Bradley parts. A serial number gives us an idea of how old your fixture is, but does not identify it. You may need to know the following when ordering replacement parts:

  • Shape: Circular, semi-circular or corner
  • Bowl Material: Precast Terrazzo, Bradstone, or Stainless steel, Terreon solid surface
  • Water Activation: Foot control, hand-control, electronic or air
  • Supply & Vent: Water supply for above or below, vent off the line or centrally rising
  • If no serial number, estimated date of installation

What does the needle valve do on a foot valve?

It regulates the amount of water entering the valve to push the plunger down for shut off. For example, if the needle valve is screwed in all the way, the valve will not shut off. When it is screwed out all the way, it has a quick shut off (automatically 1 second), but without slamming.

A repair kit, S45-049, is available and will repair either of the valves

I acquired an old washfountain and would like to put it back into service. I'm not sure if this washfountain was working properly in the past, or how long it has been out of service.

Yes, we continue to sell parts for washfountains that are well over 50 years old and still working. You will need to determine what model and style you have. To help in determining what you have, visit the washfountainssection of this web site. Try to match the features of your washfountain to the features listed on the site. After you narrow down what you have, you can view technical data and/or installation instructions. The installation instructions show parts breakdowns. Parts can be ordered from the nearest sales representative.

I have an old Washfountain and the bowl is deteriorating. The finish is rough and the concrete is wearing away. Can the bowl be rebuilt and restored to a like new finish?

Yes, we do offer a Terrazzo resurfacing kit. It includes most of the materials necessary to resurface a 54" circular bowl. The bowl must be thoroughly cleaned and dried before proceeding. The part number is S65-119 and instructions are included.

For colors use kits that include pigments. Whisper Gray requires S65-120, Granito is kit S65-121, Green is S65-122 and Dusty Rose is S65-124.

After resurfacing, use a marine grade polyurethane coating (not supplied) to seal the bowl and bring back that new glossy finish.

Note: If bowl is deteriorating to the point it is leaking, it should be replaced

Classic Washfountains (with spray ring) - Maintenance Info

Does Bradley have any recommendation on which soap should be used in the washfountains?

Bradley works directly with a company called Champion Brand Products (a division of Lochrie and Associates, Inc.). They have tested all of our soap valves and can give you proper recommendations for the specific types of soap necessary for any application. The phone number for Champion Brand Products is 1(800)344-5301.

The spray ring on my washfountain seems to be getting clogged. How do I clean this?

First, you will have to disassemble your washfountain to get to the sprayhead. To clean the sprayhead, remove the three screws holding the sprayhead together. Disassemble the sprayhead and dislodge chips, pipe dope or other foreign material with a wire brush. Lime build-up may also be removed in this manner. Sprayheads with rubber grommet spray rings may be cleaned by rubbing a coin over the grommet to remove the deposits.

I am doing preventative maintenance on the foot valve on my washfountain. What do you recommend as a lubricant?

Bradley recommends a product called "Super Lube Grease" manufactured by Synco Chemical Corporation. Contact them at 516-567-5300. The foot valve itself is S07-066. The repair kit for it is S65-203. The repair kit for the obsolete S07-015 valve is S65-001A.

Can I replace the manual mixing valve on my washfountain with a thermostatic mixing valve?

My Touch 'N' Flo shower valve drips water from the pushbutton. How can I stop this?

By design, the Touch 'N' Flo valve does drip water from the pushbutton. When the pushbutton is activated, water is evacuated from the upper chamber inside the valve body. This water is then directed to spill out small holes on the pushbutton of the valve. There will be no more than a teaspoon each time the valve is activated. This is a standard function of the valve and is not a cause for alarm. If a more serious problem persists, contact your Bradley representative.

I have a Micro-Touch wall shower. Do you have a repair kit for the solenoid valve? The part number on the solenoid valve casting is 'K-63314-8 ¼'. I do not want to purchase the entire valve.

You have an Eaton solenoid valve, 269-719. The repair kit is S65-113. This kit consists of the spring, an armature and a diaphragm.
