Hi there-

I have a couple questions:

1) Pretty much everyone I've talked to say Kohler is the brand to go with when it comes to faucets/shower valves, etc, etc. Anyone disagree?

2) I'm having a fiberglass stand-up only shower replaced with a nice marble solution and I'm looking to replace the shower valve/valve trim/shower head. When I'm shopping for this stuff, can I get a set that includes the tub spout? I'm assuming I can, but I don't want to buy it and then have the plumber tell me I'm out of my mind!

Thanks much!

Schlotkins, Sure you can get the kits in just about any combination. Kohler is very good but also try Moen. Go to both websites and you can find just about any design and

OK - I checked everything out and I found the one I want. Now, I have one more question... I have no idea which value I need. I'm not going to have a spout, so I'm not sure if one of these valves won't work. here's the set I'm looking at and the valve options are on the left. If it makes any diffence, I have copper piping:

Thanks for any help!
