The long and short of it: This Shower Control is a fully functioning Shower Faucet without the showerhead. It includes the Handle to control the Shower (on/off) along with the Rough-in Valve which installs in the wall. This item can work with any showerhead or handheld shower when plumbed correctly in the wall. It mixes the water from your hot and cold water lines in the wall and sends out a stream of warm water to whatever shower spray you choose.
Buy this item if:You want full control over your choice of shower head, handheld shower, or even ceiling mount shower head. This item will work with a shower head made by any manufacturer. If you want to replace just the shower handle but continue to use your existing showerhead, this item will also work great!
This fixture includes the Rough-in Valve. The Valve is the part that installs in the wall and connects to your home's hot and cold water supply. The Valve included with this item is the Delta Universal Multi-Choice R10000-UNBX Shower Valve without stops. Delta has manufactured all of their Trim kits (the part of the Shower you actually see) to all fit the same Universal Shower Valve. In the future, if you ever plan to change the style or finish of your Shower Faucet, you will not need to change out the Valve in the wall (as long as you stick with Delta as the manufacturer). This saves you from having to rip out tile or go through other hassles to change your Shower. You can just swap out the old with the new. This advantage allows you to stay up to date with the latest design and home decor trends!
