: If it is like most of the ones that filled that way, you cannot convert it. You would have to install a second faucet above that one for the shower. That drain/faucet combination was the epitome of unsanitary cross connections.

: : HI,

: : We recently purchased a 100+ year old cast iron tub which sits on
: : a pedestal (skirt) thingy. The unique thing about this tub is that
: : it fills from the drain up, not through a faucet. We would like
: : to make this tub into a tub/shower combination and it came with
: : solid brass plumbing ... How can we convert this to a shower combo.
: : without having to waste the beautiful solid brass fittings? Any advice
: : would be appreciated! Thanks :)

Your input is very much appreciated. We've decided to use the existing
brass and hardware which came with the tub as decorative only and we'll
install a proper new functioning set above those. Great idea!
