I have a few questions.
1 - Between Plumb Pak & Dura Pro toilet tank elbow, is one necessarily better than the other? Also, between 22 ga. & 17 ga., which one is the thicker metal?
2 - The tub faucet pictured below is original to my claw foot tub and I'm considering re using it. I'm thinking of sending it off to be rechromed. My question is this.....(and I don't know if it leaks or not) once I unscrew those large nuts at the base of the handle stems, I can completely unscrew the handle assembly out of the faucet. There is a rubber grommet at the bottom. Is that the only thing I should replace or should something else be changed in there besides the grommet?
3 - The spigot on this faucet set.....my dad told me he thought that the stepped part was meant to have a hose attached to it? Is that so? I looked up these and you can buy reproductions and several of them had this same stepped piece. On mine, the stepped piece unscrews and can be removed.
