    Default Help me identify and upgrade old Price Pfister 3 handle tub/shower

    Picture attached

    Can anybody help me? I am trying to change out old chrome Price Pfister handles on a 3 handle system (hot/cold/diverter) and upgrade them to a brushed nickle finish. They are old compression style valve stems which are fine. I have found kits for Verve and Windsor but can't find anything to identify what I've got. Any help is appreciated.

    It looks closer to the Windsor style. They may have been changed at one time with a similar handle.

    Default Pp

    It is the Crown Jewel version, but that means nothing as far as you are concerned because the piece inside the wall is universal to all their trim lines. If I were doing it, I would buy a complete new PP valve and then convert the body in the wall to the new ceramic seat stems. The only problem with doing it on your valve is that some Crown Jewel bodies require the the seats, (which are normally discarded), sometimes have to remain in the valve, but you cannot tell if yours do until you try the conversion without the seats. If you want to play it safe, then buy the new trim you like, the modern ones will replace your chrome trim without replacing the stems.

    The answer to this type of question is usually NO. But you got lucky.

    Apparenty they used a lot of PP in Arizona, because hj is all over this one. The PP 3 handle body probably has more trim options available for upgrade than any other faucet ever made. Take all your parts down to a plumbing supply and they can fix you up.
