View Full Version : Old shower knob leaks

08-27-2008, 07:08 PM
I have a bathtub with hot and cold knobs and a knob in the middle which you have to turn to turn on the shower. The whole setup is over 50 years old. My problem is the shower knob has water coming out of it from the ring against the wall. I took out the screw in the end of the knob out and unscrewed the ring from the wall but the knob will not come off. Do I need to pry it off? Should it screw off by itself?

Thanks for you help.

Give us a picture, but it should pull off, although you might need a handle puller if it is corroded in place.
