Can't tell what would fit & plumber gone


Hey guys,

The plumber ran pipe and installed this shower fixture unit. Can anyone tell what brand would fit what he installed? Any thoughts are appreciated, because now the plumber is MIA.

The piece that's not installed is what came with the shower faucet kit.

I'm sure one of the plumbers will be along shortly.
He never should have used steel strapping, it's going to cause corrosion.
Copper or plastic only.

The top image looks like a moen valve- not sure of the lower one.
Can you supply a closer image of the valve stem in the top image?

If it really is a Moen then you have several trim styles to choose from- see their catalog online

Unless the top pic is backwards, it appears "plumber" reversed the hot and cold water supplies. Lucky if it is a Moen because that can be easily fixed by flipping the cartridge and not having to re-pipe.

As stated by TheEplumber and Ben's Plumbing, you have a common standard Moen Posi-Temp valve body. Lots of trim kits readily available from any plumbing store.
