Clawfoot tub faucet diverter not working
 
1 Attachment(s)
My clawfoot tub faucet is in need of repair. The lever that controls the tub or shower option stopped working. It became very loose and I could not get water to come out at all. I can't find much info about this on the web. From what I can gather its a compression valve problem?? There appears to be a torn plastic washer. Can this brass fitting be removed and replaced? Help!

what washer? what brass fitting? I can't see what you have.

Good thing everyone has a digital camera and you can attach pictures to your posts... huh? Do that and we'll try again... OK?

That's odd because I did attach a photo and I can see it.

Probably.

It appears that the brass fitting has threads in the center...
probably for a handle. Put that handle or a bolt in there and pull.
That should get it out.

Find a really good plumbing supply house.
Take the fitting and the picture there.
