Just moved into a new house and found the faucet for the shower turns the wrong direction. I'm not sure of the make/model, but it is a triple faucet - hot, cold and shower/tub.

I've had the faucets apart looking for a cartridge or something to turn around, but nothing. All I get is the outer piping that houses the turn valve that the handle screws into (For lack of better word). The "turn valve" runs back into the outer piping and I can't see the end of it. Any ideas?

Many people think that its possible to install decorative hardware on any valve..Its sounds like your new house has a conventional tub/shower valve that someone has installed decorative handles on.The valve doesnt turn correctly because (usually the hot) doesnt have the correct stem. Just a sight-unseen guess. erik
