I have an AKER whirlpool tub that needs new air control

Customer Question
I have an AKER...

I have an AKER whirlpool tub that needs new air control knobs. Old ones are polished brass. Need brushed nickel or white.

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

The controls work but the brass is in bad shape. Tried ordering replacement parts from whirlpooltubparts.com but I need 2, and they only have 1 in stock. The parts are discontinued.
