Help identifying my shower valve?


I am doing a bathroom renovation. I want to get a new trim kit but was told I need to first identify what valve the shower has. I think the previous trim kit was a Moen. The handles turned counter clockwise for temperature control. There was no separate movement for flow control.

Pictures are attached, if anyone can help I would appreciate it!

you MAY want to do what I jusr did: replace the entire valve. for $70 at Lowes I got a nice "Price Pfister" kit. not difficult to do if you've got access behind the shower and have had experience soldering copper pipe. see my recent post about "shower valve replacement". good luck!

tnx,

From the looks of it, it looks like a Moen Posi-Temp Pressure Balancing valve with stops. It might also be the 1/2" CC style. Just a little more to replace. I just replaced the non 1/2" CC cartridge in my master bath because it would never fully cutoff. The cartridge is about $30 and to replace the whole valve could be anywhere from $60 - $75. Your choice.
