I have an old tub/shower with 3 handles in it (hot/cold/shower on) that are all twist knobs. The hot or cold can not fully disengage because they are a bit older and have some sediment built up in them I believe. So there is a constant tiny drip comping out of the water faucet in the tub.
I had a plumber look at it and he quoted me $500 to rebuild the existing hot/cold handles. Basically he would pull the guts out of them and put all new guts and handles back in. I really don't want to pay that much as it seems pretty straightforward. He hummed and hawed over what type of faucet it was but didn't tell me, but I mean they look pretty generic.
So my questions:
Are these rebuild kits that I see at Home Depot etc. pretty generic, and should they work for this? These handle are at least 20 years old I guess. The rebuild kits I find are generally in the 40-60 dollar range.
For a moderately skilled person, is it really that hard to do these rebuilt kits? It doesn't look too bad honestly.
