I am NOT good at home repair or plumbing, so please excuse me if I
explain this like a 2-year old.
A few years ago, we remodeled our master bathroom and switched the
fixtures in the sink and shower to brass. Anyway maybe, in hindsight,
we may not have picked the best set for the shower as we didn't know
what we were doing.
That said, I take it the set the plumber used for the shower was simply
brass coated as while the faucet and shower head are still fine, the
brass (or cheap brass coating) on the tub drain itself seems to have
worn away. So, we have brass in the tub except for the drain at the
bottom of the tub where we have this ugly browish metal drain with no
"brass" coloring left to it. It doesn't seem to be tarnish, it seems
the set was cheap and the "brass" color is washed away from that piece
after a few years of water running through it day after day.
This seems to be a simple round piece metal that screws down and
probably cost $2.00 to replace as the pipes and rest of the set are
still like new. However, I can't find a replacement drain anywhere.
Actually, it's not the "drain" I need.. it's the lousy drain cover I
guess that I need to replace.
However, I can't find this one small piece sold on it's own anyway,
even eBay. They all want to sell me the entire drain and pile, much
more than I need.
Can someone be kind enough to tell me the proper name for what I am
trying to replace "drain cover?" and how to get JUST THAT. Home Depot,
Lowes, etc seem to have the entire set and nothing less.
