Q. "What is a thermostatic shower?"
A. A thermostatic shower mixes hot and cold water and regulates the temperature of the water keeping it within a range of one half a degree. This is great because you don't have to keep adjusting the hot and cold water to maintain desired temperature; the device does this for you.
Q. "I noticed the shower valve says 'with stops,' what does that mean?"
A. "With stops" means that the valve includes shut-offs for the water line so you don't have to shut off water to the entire house to work/repair parts on the shower/tub system.
Q. "What do you mean by trim?"
A. For plumbing purposes, a trim kit is the exposed decorative portion of a faucet. In a shower, it's the handles and escutcheon that you see and is connected to the rough-in valve in the wall. Typically, trim kits are designed to fit a particular valve.
Q. "Do the trims on this page fit other brands of valves?"
A. The trims on this page are designed for the valves on this page and won't fit all brands. These are not generic "Will Fit" diverter valves/trims.
