    Default Shower valve may be 1/8" too far back -- will we be OK?

    Not sure where our calcs went wrong but we've got an American Standard R540 valve installed--very difficult to move at this point!--and the tile guy says that the tile will end up about 1/8" proud of the Max dimension on the plaster guard. I understand the meaning of Max... but is there likely still some flexibility here are are we going to be screwed if we install the tile w/o moving the valve out?


    A deep rough kit can be ordered
