How to remove the corroded valve seat housing in my tub faucet
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?
