Replacing Trim Kit for Roman Tub
We have a 20 year old Roman tub faucet on our Jacuzzi. It is a Moen and we are wondering if anyone out there has replaced the visible portion (trim kit) of one similar. Please see image below. Replacing the plumbing below the surface is not an option.
I contacted Moen and they seem to think the handles would be ok with something like a Moen Kingsley Brushed nickel two-handle low arc roman tub faucet. But, the shank that the spout attaches to is 1/16" of an in shorter than the recommended size. Would this be a problem in practice? The recommended size for the shank is to ensure a seal.
And would the handles really fit?
