Traditionally, the valves for this kind of shower should be installed on the shower wall over the two handles. It is not necessary to use an extra screw. There are four big screws that make up the handles.
In fact, the center is 1/2 inch wide
These screws aren't covered by anything. It is best to replace them if they start to rust, or to cover them with water-resistant tape.

It is very difficult to find this It took me about a month to make sense of the terminology used to identify a GE 4 "OC 2 handle shower only valve for a I didn't want the plastic version for my mobile home, I wanted this awesomeness! Completely made of brass, including seats and valves that can be replaced, replaceable/adaptable trim that can be flat or abscessed for ease of installation. Honestly, the other one I had was 40 years old and literally blew off the hot handle on my man bag It rained a lot, was very hot, and hot water gushed out of the valve hole (75 psi is more than you think. I emptied my 50 gallon heater in 2 minutes. I had a huge grin on I had a good day on According to the ER, you shouldn't work on a project you do not understand. It was kind of an excitement this time, but hot got jealous and took out lefty for doing so. " I replied, "I know, but I tried cold first this time for the excitement. ". Now that I can walk again, and my shower is sturdy, there are no leaks, no lead, and no build-up, it's quite funny Now that I have taken my cups off, I don't need them anymore Tub and/or shower, just need to have tub spout with handle. No funny stuff, but with a tub spout, you can tie up the water.
Upper and lower outlets are available for this valve, so you can use it with With one washer on the top, it is similar to a garden bib with a screw that holds it in place. There is a problem with this screw because mineral buildup easily strips it. I'm almost tearing it apart when I try to unscrew it. Another feature that might be a problem over time are the handles, since they are not very sturdy. It appears that I have to change the washer on a regular basis.
If you would like to customize the EZ-Lock, please contact us There are no known compatibility problems with the stem when using Flo brand valves Extensions and handles should be used on stems. It uses a #10-size screw to fix the stem This thread has a coarser texture than 24. I made a trip to home depot and the local plumbing supply store to ID the correct parts, so I hope this information can save others from having to make the same trip.
It's not the same to work on and replace each part in a mobile home, as mobile home owners know. It is best to use Sharkbite couplings when you tap into grey schedule 80 pipe found in most mobile homes (I had to attach/detach/reattach the fittings several times before they would stop leaking. After being covered with teflon tape, I used pipe dope to create a water-resistant seal. This type of seal will keep out water). With the installation of these valves, I've had no problems with my previously dripping shower head. As another reviewer noted, the handles are chintzy (as was also added by a third rater), but I don't plan on going crazy with them, so they should last a very long time.
Although the faucet was good, the Teflon tape that came with it was of poor quality. It just fell apart when you tried to attach the pipe to Except for that, the value is excellent. After looking for a faucet that I could adapt for a shower valve for a very long time, I finally found it. When you have one of these RVs, you know that you need to turn on the sink faucet and use it as the slower just makes it difficult to use it. I didn't want the plate to stick out too much after all, so I took the cover from a wall mount faucet. In that case, I rephrase As far as I could tell, that was the only one that I could drill and install from the backside, wow it works You'll need one for the sink and one for the shower just like on a big RV.
Heavy duty, but not perfect. The shower was purchased for use in a camper van. There are a lot of two handle fixtures out there, but I couldn't seem to find one. handles on the faucet are made from Installing the fixture was difficult due to the short threads on the fixture. The wall thickness was only 3/8" and I had to drill almost to the liner of the wall to fit the fixture. The cap came with a wrench which could be used to turn the faucet over and add I am pleased with the way it looks once it is installed.
If the water pressure in your area is between 40 and 50 psi, it should work fine. Install a water pressure regulator at your water meter or as close as possible to your water meter if your water pressure is higher than you would like. You should ensure there is a proper balance between hot and cold water pressure.
do not match my existing product. The handles themselves were made from cheap plastic and the rings around the handles did not match my existing product either. There is little chance they will last for six The old ones were made of metal, so I did not expect these to be. As far as I knew, I only needed the stems and handles, and I planned to pull them out and reinstall them in As a result, I was disappointed that the stems did not fit my original unit, since the internal fittings were a different size. It is not mentioned in the description or specifications what size the internal fitting is. Having to replace the entire unit now is the only way to get this to Also, I'd like to upgrade the rings and handles to something that will last longer than a couple of Installing it is now going to cost a few more hours of time from the plumber, as well as $150-200 There is an additional $200.
