    Default Price Pfister Old Shower Tub Set

    Hello,
    this is a long shot but thought I would put it out there. We are not original owners of this house(FYI).
    We would like to replace this set and add a shower head and matching sink faucet as well.

    This is a 5 hole set I believe?

    Can anyone suggest away to find the right sets?





    Any advice is appreciated.

    thanks

    I don't think you'll find an exact replacement for the tub/shower (exact in form, not looks). This has to do with the federal guidelines requiring anti-scald technology in a shower. What's there now is almost certainly not in compliance with those guidelines. You are required to bring it up to code if you replace, but not to repair what's there already. Since you essentially want to replace it, that's what triggers the update to current codes. There are a number of choices for the vanity in that configuration for that sink. You may want to look at those first, then see about the shower. Unless they left some spare tiles, you may be looking at tearing up more than you want in there. Do you have access from behind that wall (maybe in a closet)?

    If it's a Price Phister, it's considered a three handle faucet.

    The spout and the shower arm spin on using standard 1/2" threading.

    Terry,
    thank you. So a 3 hole. The drawing shows the handles...do you see the spout or the diverter (hand held shower & tub) drawing?

    Sorry, I am not able to articulate very well.

    You can use a faucet hole cover for the hand held location.

    Any shower arm will work, at the high location.
    And a tub spout without diverter too.

    You can either rebuild what you have, or pick up a single handle with remodel plate.

    Appreciate the prompt help and replies.

    I thank you. And yes, you are probably spot on. Like I mentioned, a long shot. lol We do have access. There is the master closet.
    And to make matters worse, the tiles are small, 3 1/4"...so trying to add a shower and not make it looked rigged is a big challenge.

    Thanks...

    PS: I was thinking we could get rid of the hand held and just patch the hole but then it would look really funky.
