We have an old three handle bathtub faucet from Price Pfister and it
drips almost monthly. We have tried replacing the rubber washers and
it helps for a bit, but then starts dripping again. I was led to
believe that it may require changing the faucet seats as well as
washers. They are removable according to a local plumbing supply who
sold us two new ones. My question is how do I remove the existing ones
and screw in the replacements. We bought a seat removal tool, but
which direction do I turn it to remove the old seat? I don't know if
it's clockwise or counter clockwise to remove the damaged seats and I
would hate to make a mistake and break it.
Also is there any repairs besides washer replacement that can be done
to the diverter valve (middle handle)?
Thank you for any help.
