Q. "With the V4462CP and V44624PB you state 'no longer available.' What do you mean?"
A. Valley is no longer made and Valley has not made or offered those for a number of years. Some don't like the newer style as well, but none of us have a choice or option. The new style does fit, and we do still stock some of their newer styles.
Q. "The Valley old style (before 1993) escutcheon shows the two mounting holes on the bottom but my existing escutcheon has the two holes on the top. How will this escutcheon work as a replacement for my Valley shower valve?"
A. The original old style escutcheons Valley provided with their valves had the screw holes at the top, above the center of the valve. In later years, and up to the present, the only Valley escutcheons made for replacements have the screw holes located below the center of the valve. The original brass "rough-in" shower valves (part behind the wall) were made with threaded mounting holes both at the top and the bottom but only the top holes were used. The replacement escutcheon will need to be screwed into the bottom threaded mounting holes. Since there is always a possibility the original valves may have not been threaded by mistake, you will need to check to make sure your valve has the available threaded holes to mount the escutcheon. Otherwise you will have to mount the escutcheon upside down. Thus, the temperature indicators will be wrong.
Q. "What's the difference (besides a slightly different look) between the VP1964 Non-Diverter and the VP1965 Diverter cartridges?"
A. The VP1964 Non-Diverter cartridge is used for all Valley "new style" single control kitchen and lavatory faucets that do NOT have a hand spray attachment. The VP1965 Diverter cartridge has a diverter in it to divert water from the spout to the hand spray when the hand spray lever is pushed. The VP1965 Diverter cartridge is used on single control kitchen and lavatory faucets with a hand spray attachment except for the Valley Hi-Style series. The Valley Hi-Style kitchen faucets use the VP1964 Non-Diverter cartridge because the diverter is located in the base of the spout and not in the cartridge. Click here to compare each cartridge.
Note: The VP1964 Non-Diverter cartridge is also used for Valley "new style" bath/shower valves. This does not include the back-to-back or pressure balance bath/shower valves because a different style cartridge is used.
Please note: Although the parts we have available are made from the same molds used by the original manufacturer - Valley is no longer in business, so warranty coverage on existing products is no longer available. Parts that we offer fall under our standard policy.
