Shower Valve Trim Kit Question


Probably a stupid question but a Google search came up empty so I thought Id ask here.

When purchasing a "Shower Valve Trim Kit" does the valve come with that kit or is this a separate purchase?

You have to buy one of each.

Re: Shower Valve Trim Kit Question


Be advised that any faucet you purchase over the internet that is used for drinking. Kitchen and bar and lavatory faucets you will need to prove they meet California lead standards. That is state wide now.

Under IPC that controls 35 states you will need tub or shower valves that are certified to meet ASSE 1016/ ASME A 112.1016 /CSA B 125.16 or ASME A112.18.1/CSA B 125.1 Lead standards do not apply for these.

You can use under IPC a two handle faucet on a tub without a shower but you must install an ASSE 1070 tempering vale to prevent scald.

The other major thing to consider is Parts availability 10 years down the road.
Moen Delta they will be there. Signature your guess is as good as mine.

Re: Shower Valve Trim Kit Question


If you're going cheap get yourself a Delta, Kohler or Moen (not the Positemp) valve. Those companies make decent valves and a pretty inexpensive price and they do have some higher end lines. You can get a quality body and trim kit with a lifetime warranty for $250ish.

If you really want something that looks nice check out Rohl. It probably looks similar to what Signature Hardware is selling but is the real stuff. Looks nice, lasts, works great, feels solid and they stand behind it. A basic shower is probably around twelve hundred though for a thermostatic valve, volume control, arm and head.

when you say valve you mean and trim kit combined correct?
