Question about American Standard Plumbing
Grrr.plumbing ... I am the by default female ''fixit'' around here and this is my plumbing stumbling block .I have 30 year old American Standard (not!) 3 handle tub faucets (shower diverter handle in the middle )I am adept at replacing valve seats and stem/washers assemblies, but my cold water valve seat housing itself has corroded through, so the faucet continues to drip around the valve seat.How do I get that piece out ? It is threaded, as is the stem housing (with a hex lock lug to hold the valve stem in place) Is there a specific tool to remove that?
Some seats ae rremovable and some or not Some take a hex(allen) wrench and some take a square (seat removal tool) Most of us use a seat grinder. (another tool to dress up the seat (Remove material) past the seat damage. You will find any of these tools at any hardware store that sells plumbing parts. If the seats have a square or hex hole remove and replace rather that grind(dress)the seat. All right hand threads meaning turn counter clock wise to remove. Take old seat to the American Standard plmbing supply outlet and then will match it up. Good fix-in to ya.
