In response to Re: Crane Shower system
: I have an old (my house was built circa 1930, original, I'm not sure)Crane shower single handle faucet with a separate diverter. The handle goes from SHUT to COLD to HOT. The diverter goes from SHOWER AND SPRAY to SHOWER to SPRAY. It works well, but my problem is that I can not get it to stop dripping. Yes, I know that it takes a bit of time for the upper shower to finish draining, but not all day and night. I have replaced the washer(s) behind the single handle, just beneath the two cone shaped inserts. Of course I had to fabricate the washers as all plumbing shops laughed when I brought the unit in to ask about it. They all agreed that I was out of luck. Any help out there?

There are still many of the original Crane parts available for the "pre-war" shower valves. We stock many of them, Take a look at the parts breakdown we have on our web site for the crane single lever "pre-war" shower faucet it may be a help.
