Default Tub faucet brand?

Greetings all...

Sorry I haven't been around lately but there's just been too much going on lately dealing with my mom's house...

Getting ready to hopefully install acrylic surround over tub and was wondering just what the brand is for the tub faucet. If we can replace the guts and top cover it would be a lot easier than replacing whole thing.




This is back side of the cover which screws into that piece above



We are selling house pretty much "as is" but every little bit helps...

Thanks...

Could you post a picture of the handle and the other side of the cover plate?

American Standard will do nicely. Looks like you have gone dip enough, so you can install whatever mom likes.

Ajay that is American Standard. Here is a link to a supplier that you get a rebuild kit from. There # is RBK1101. But I do agree with Plumbero007 you will never get any closer then you are at this point to replace the faucet with a new balance pressure unit.

Thanks for the replies and for the information.
We are only in town here for a week or so, so if we decide it needs replacing will probably replace the entire thing.

The entire house is in serious need to updating however we need to spend more time cleaning it out of furniture, etc.. to prepare for sale.

We are only fixing the shower walls because they leak into the basement. Plastic tiles attached to drywall. Wow.

Toilet leaks when flushed and probably only needs new wax ring, but it is also very old. I'm afraid once removed it won't be possible to replace. Has two bolts on each side. So we are just going to put in a new toilet.

Ajay that is a very old toilet. There is a good chance there is no flange under it, which you need to install a new toilet. Many of the four bolt toilets were screwed to the floor with closet screws. Instead of installing a flange on the lead pipe they would just fold the top of the lead over the floor. Then use closet screws to fasten the toilet to the floor. Some times they used wax but they also used a mixture of plumbers putty and plaster.
