Shower faucet hole


How big should the hole be in my tile for my shower faucet? I may have not left myself enough room. DO you guys think I could cut it out bigger with a grinder/diamond blade?

What brand ?

Moen is very forgiving --Delta,no so much---

Try the trims --do they fit?

Shower faucet hole


Sorry guys.

It's a moen positemp. I figured as long as the screws would go into the valve that would be big enough of a hole. Is that to small? Here's a pic of the valve and the showerhead spout. Excuse the crooked glass tiles, it was my first time..lol

It should have been 5 1/2" across---why didn't you leave in the plastic trim ring and cut around that?

Shame on you.

All right---I said what you expected me to say---Now ,go ahead and install your trims--I believe you will be successful--slip them on and let us know.--Mike---

If that doesn't work--let us know.

This is my old valve so that's the way the builder put it in.

Got you---first time tiling,so you didn't have anything to compare it to---Moen plates are quite flat,so I think that you are going to be O.K.--do you have a cover to try?

Another thing to know---if the stem is in the wall to far--there is an extension stem available from Moen or a local plumbing supply house.
