I am replacing the shower and tub fixtures from a 17 year old Delta to a Price Pfister. They are both single handle.The shower diverter on the current fixture is incorporated into handle unit (It's a valve that you pull out or push in to activate.)
The new fixture has the diverter on the tub spout
My question is: Can I simply remove the integrated shower diverter and replace it with a pipe extension and then install the spout model? The can is the hard part because the fitting is below the opening. can this be done?
For what it is worth, I would much rather have a 17 year old delta tub valve than a brand new price pfister any day ever. That being said, do you realize that the push-pull diverter valve is part of the tub/shower valve that you are going to replace? It should go away when you pull the old valve out.
