Screws?


I'm installing my shower mixer valve. I'm going to secure it to a support through it's ears (that's the right term, right? In any case: they're screw holes).

The mixer is brass, some of it is coated with something (shiny silver).

Can I just use regular screws? I know with plumbing I need to worry about corrosion.

Thanks!
