Default How to change Price Pfister bathtub faucet seats

bargaindealsman wrote:

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.


Turn CCW to remove. Often they are *very* tight and there is
risk of rounding out the hex hole.
If you get them out, use thread sealant (pipe dope) on the new ones.
Do not use Teflon tape.
