Thread: Shower Kit

  1. #1

    Default Shower Kit

    I am updating my shower faucet & spout. Wanted a color not used much anymore, so found a kit and bought it. It is for a shower/bath combination. I have just a standing shower, so I only have the faucet (single) and the shower head. (No tub spout, so no diverter to that.) Have not opened box yet. Can I use the faucet (single) from this kit on my different type shower?

    Normally, yes. If it is really old, or was designed for a tub only, it MIGHT not contain the mandated anti-scald features. This is not good (but it probably has this feature). I would not install it unless it did, though. Sometimes there are two outlets, but one is plugged. You might be able to plug the lower one and use the upper one alone. If they are both open, you'll need to find a plug for the bottom one if you are only going to use it for a shower.
