Remove Tub Faucet Junk With Ease

Tub Faucet
Here is a simple way to remove encrusted with mineral deposits, salt and sediment from your tub faucet.
Over time the diverter valve on a bathtub faucet can become encrusted with mineral deposits, salt and sediment, making it difficult to operate and causing you to have to yank on it in order to direct the water up to the showerhead. To solve this problem, remove the tub faucet, lay it in a deep bowl or pot and cover it with white vinegar. Allow the faucet to soak overnight or until the diverter valve slides open and closed smoothly. Then rinse with clean water.
