In response to Re: old Standard shower valve

: I have an old tub/shower in a 1910's
: building that has two knobs for
: the tub spout and two for the shower.
: The hot water tub valve will not shut
: off completely.

: This valve has three ports. The inlet
: port. An outlet port which is not
: controlled by the valve and leads to
: the hot shower valve. And an outlet
: port controlled by the valve which
: leads to the tub spout.

: The valve has Standard written on it.

: Has anyone ever seen such a thing?
: (and would know where to get one)

: Thanks!

The only way to find replacement parts would be to go to a specialty parts store with the stem in hand for an exact match-up, anything else will be a waste of time. The faucet may have barrels (pictured) or it may be regular compression style with seats and washers.
Good Luck. e-plumber
