Shower trim kit


I purchased a Price Pfister shower trim kit. Little did i know that all trim kits are not created equal. Our old one is a delta and this one will not fit the old rough-in valve. What is involved in changing out a rough-in valve? Does it require sweating the pipes? B/C my hubby doesn't know how to do that. I saw a delta universal valve that says it could be installed without altering the plumbing behind the wall. Will that fit it? Help! I can't return this kit and it's so pretty. I got everything brass to match.

Shower trim kit


You will have to take out the old rough in valve seat, but you don't necessarily have to sweat the copper. You can cut the lines, clean them, and use "Shark Bite" coupling. It's really easy to use, just shove the 1/2" copper into it, and your set. Since you will be purchasing a new valve seat, you maybe able to find someone in Home Depot that will solder the 1/2" copper line in there for you, then just measure the difference (take-off) from the Shark Bite, and pop it right in.

Hope that helps. Sorry if it doesn't.

By the way, Moen is the best!
