Changing my shower fixtures from delta to something else

Posted by esther65 (My Page) on

So I am trying to remodel my bathroom and I want to switch out the brass fixtures in my shower for some nice dark ones. I bought some fixtures that I really liked but my contractor said he couldn't use them because my shower had delta parts, and these were a different brand. Does this mean I am stuck with the same brand forever?

RE: Changing my shower fixtures from delta to something else

The valve body is inside the wall - behind the tile.

There are a couple of options:

If you are ripping out the tile - get whatever you want.

If the tile stays, and you can replace the valve body - by having access behind the shower wall (via cutting a hole in a closet or hall wall) - then you can get a new fixture - but it will have to match the holes that are already in the tile.

Otherwise you have to use the same valve body, which limits you to the original model faucet.
