Mrs. Jackson called me from the PennySaver Advertisement about a small plumbing issue in the shower. Her home had galvanized plumbing and she had major pipe breaking problem all the time.
She was saving up for a complete re-piping of her home.
This post shows the four steps to removing a shower stem and replacing the rubber seal.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows a sit down shower and it was missing the left knob. The left shower knob stem was constantly dripping. Use a Phillip screwdriver and remove the brass screw from the stem.
