Mounting shower/tub valve
No dumb questions right....;)
When installing a single handle shower/tub valve how is the valve secured to the framing. The valve does not have "ears" on it. Do the pipes secure the valve?
Also, if the pipes (copper) hold the valve the straps are copper....are steel nails used? I know the straps must be copper to avoid the dissimular metals problems but what about the nails or screws that hold the straps. No dumb questions right?
Thanks in advance!
Single handle valve height
I have a single handle shower/tub valve and the instructions (I read them;) ) show an installation height of 26". Well, this old tired back wants this shower to be nice and easy...I want to install the valve at a height of 36 to 40". Is there any problem doing this? The valve includes a diverter.
Oh....can you bend copper pipe without any future problems???
