Replacing shower head and faucet puzzle, moen to kohler


Good morning,

Doing several projects around the home and the wife purchased a new shower head and valve from kohler... I previously had a moen head and facet... I am doing a master bath remodel and the shower is the only thing left... I didnt close up the walls yet to address this issue first.

The moen handle was a simple turn one way for hot the other for cold... This kohler is the same style, nothing to fancy.

1. Does one have to replace the valve when replacing the shower facet handle? This doesn't make since to me.

2. attached are two photos of the included adapter which shows a "spiked" stem adapter from kohler, while the other photo shows my stem is flat on two sides from moen... Can i buy a converter of sorts?

You have to buy the manufacturers product line for the handle. Shower heads interchange though

I apologize i just saw i wrote shower head and valve... I meant to state showerhead and facet handle. With that said, is your statement still hold true? handles need manufacturer's valve? If so that really stinks..

Yep, it stinks. You might find another Moen handle your wife likes, though?
