Could anyone tell me where I can buy a replacement, or information on, a Homart wall bathtub faucet. I believe it was sold by ***** between the 1960s and 1970s. This faucet has a lever underneath, that when pushed up, diverts water to the shower line. My house was built in the 1960s. I'm trying to avoid having my tiled bathtub wall torn a part more than necesarry--if I replace it with something newer, I'll have to replace all the tiled walls so every thing matches again. Thanks and have a good day.

when you divert water to shower head it does not fully switch over and continues to come out the bath faucet. is there any way to fix without tearing apart the wall?

I have discovered that the spout can screw off from the base does anyone know where I can get a replacement spout or how to fix the diverter in the original spout? Any help would be appreciated.

Kim,

We have a leaky Homart tub faucet too.We have been trying to find replacement parts for it as well.

Have you had any sucess?

I've figured out how to remove the plunger from the valve body, but I've hit a dead end in terms of the valve seat. It appears that there should be a brand specific too; to remove the seat itself.

I eventually got a small piece of stainless steel drilled into on one side so that it would fit the homart fauset and then drilled ourt the other so that it would take a half inch pipe extension then I screwed a modern fixture to it. It works, but does not look the best but it saved a bundle of money.

Good luck.

Hi Kim - I have no idea if you're still signed up for this, but was really hoping that you had some photos (or a longer description) of how you solved the Homart issue you were encountering. I have that same issue and really don't want to rip out the wall...
