Standard brand Nu-Seal two handle rebuild kit
This kit is intended for tub shower sets that use a diverter-type tub spout, and can also be used for shower or tub only applications.  These were common from the late 1950’s through the 1960’s.  This style of stem also goes under the model name of “Aquaseal”

Standard brand Nu-Seal 3 handle rebuild kit
This kit is intended for use with tub shower sets that do not use a diverter spout.  This model was very common in the late 1950’s and ran through the 1960’s.  Make that old leaky tub/shower new again!

Standard brand Nu-Seal 3 Handle rebuild kit
This kit uses almost all the same parts as the 80-4110 kit just above, the only difference is the handles.  This set uses the canopy lever handles rather than the “star” shaped canopy handles.  These were commonly installed back in the late 1950’s through the late 1960’s.  This set would not have had a diverter spout.

Standard “Re-Nu” or “B-201” mixing (single handle) valves

Standard started to use single control mixing valves in both in-wall and exposed applications back in the 1920’s.  Many of these valves are still in use today, but finding rebuild parts can be extremely difficult.  A few parts are still made, and occasionally we can machine parts from your samples if they aren’t available.
Yes, there used to be quite a few more numbers on the below diagram.  The missing numbers were for parts that aren’t available anymore.  The diagram is from a 1934 Standard Catalog.

1920’s Standard Single Control Mixing Valve Rebuild kit
This kit is intended for Standard brand single control mixing valves made between the late teens though the early 1930’s, in both in wall and exposed applications. For this kit to work, the stem MUST have a female threaded hole at the splined end of the stem.  This kit will NOT work on Standard B-201 valves (with male thread extending out past splines) or valves where the face plate is held by 1 large nut.  Click on photo for a larger view.  Valve should have 1/2” pipe inlets.  This valve commonly used a ceramic escutcheon and handle when used in-wall.

Standard Tub Shower stems

“Standard” Version I Tub Shower stem
This stem was the first “Re-Nu” style barrel stem made by “Standard”.  Used in the 1920’s and early 1930’s in standing waste and in-wall valve applications, this stem measures 6” long overall, and the widest point of the stem is 1 1/2” wide.  The barrel itself measures 1” in diameter.  The trim for this stem will always have porcelain escutcheons and handles.  These reproductions are American made, and use a o-ring at the bottom to help seal the barrel to the valve body.  (the originals do not have this option as they were used before the invention of o-rings.)

Yes, this looks very similar to the Standard stem below.  It’s actually about 25% larger in both width and length than the below stem.


“Standard” Conversion escutcheon Nipple
This escutcheon nipple allows anyone with the above 86-601 early Standard stem and broken ceramic trim to convert over to the 80-6003 Chrome escutcheons and 80-0100 handles. This is perfect for those wanting to make their 1920’s Standard shower look more Art Deco.  Sold by the each

“Standard” Version II Tub Shower Stem
This is the second version of the “Re-Nu” style barrel made by Standard.  It came out sometime in the late 1930’s and was in use up to the early 1950’s.  Normally, this stem would have had metal handles and escutcheons.  Overall length is 5 5/8”, stem shank diameter is 7/16”, and the barrel diameter is 7/8”.  This reproduction is made in the US, and features an o-ring built onto the barrel to assist in sealing the stem into the valve body.  Cross handles normally use two hot stems, levers would use 1 hot and 1 cold.  Handles and escutcheons available here

86-8002 Standard Cold stem 36.00 addtocartmini


“Standard” Version II Diverter
This diverter stem is used in many of the later Version two installations where the middle handle wasn’t controlling the drain.  5 5/8” long, rounded edge on bonnet nut rather than square.  Replace this only if your valve isn’t diverting water to the showerhead properly, and it is highly recommended that the seat (not pictured) be changed as well.  If your valve is dripping from the spout when off, check/change the hot/cold stems.

“Standard” Version III Tub Shower stem
Sometime in the 1950’s, Standard redesigned the bonnet nut assembly for their tub-shower valves.  Valves using this stem still would have had metal cross handles and “deco-ish” trim.  Be sure to compare your stem against this one and the one directly above.  Overall length is 5 5/8” long, stem shank diameter is 7/16”, and barrel diameter is 7/8”.  Cross handles usually use two hot stems, levers use one each of hot and cold.  Handles and escutcheons available here

86-18012 Cold stem 33.00  addtocartmini

“Standard Nu Seal” Tub Shower stem
Okay, sometime in the late 1950’s, Standard decided to use only one stem design in most all of their fixtures.  They called it the “Nu-Seal”, and it is used in tub-shower applications, as well as Lavatory and Kitchen.  This style was common all the way up until the early 1970’s.  Yes, the same cartridge is used in all those applications.  There is an early version that used a bibb washer rather than the “top hat” seal pictured at left, but this one will replace both styles.  If both handles turn the same direction when opening, you will need two “hot” cartridges, if they open in opposite directions, you will need one each of hot and cold.
