shot seat or fittting in old tub fixture
So I go the handle, the ceramic stem cover and stem off. I cleaned off all the gunk and lots of calcium build up and when I looked in to check the seat, I noticed the housing around the seat was corroded through (see photo) Can this be replaced if I can find a vintage or new seat housing ? Or is what is missing part of that brass fitting and the whole thing needs to come out?
Photo shows the hole the corrosion made to the interior of the brass fitting. Hole is to the right of the center (seat area)
