Need recommendation on tub/shower valve

cal_dreamerMarch 24, 2013

Hi everyone,

We need to replace some tub/shower plumbing due to freeze damage. (Thought we winterized well enough, but forgot to open the shower valve) The Hansgrohe set-up I have isn't made anymore so I want to replace it with something I can easily get parts for.

I'll be shopping at one of the big box stores. Any recommendations on brands and/or type? (Cartridge vs ceramic disk?)

Any brands I should stay away from? (The plumber told me not to get pegasus or something else, and I can't remember. I think he said American Standard and Delta are fine.)

Helpful advice would be appreciated ~ Thanks!
