two handle shower faucet to single handle
i have a 1999 manufactured home.ive taken out the shower and was wondering if its possible to put in a single handle shower faucet since the water lines are pvc pipe?

The water lines must be CPVC, since PVC can only be used for cold water or drain lines, and not hot water lines.
Yes, you can switch to a single handle faucet from a dual handle. Go to a plumbing supply place that offers them with a large estuchion that allows replacement from the shower side, and will cover the dual handle holes.
Good Luck!
