Are Bathroom Shower Fixtures Universal?

Answer:

Showerheads have a universal thread size in the United States and Canada, which is designated as ½-inch NPT. As a result, any locally sold showerhead should be compatible with your shower arm. The exceptions to this rule are showerheads sold in other countries, unconventional showerhead designs, or very old homes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are all shower knobs the same?

Shower knobs are made from many different materials, and you should try to find some that match your other fittings in your bathroom, such as the showerhead and taps. Brass, plastic, and chrome are common materials.

Can you use any shower handle?

MongoCT. Showerhead threading is pretty much universal, you can swap one for most any other. Shower valve trim kits are the exact opposite...you may have luck by staying within a certain manufacturer, but for the most part trying to swap a trim kit onto an existing valve may or may not work.

Can I replace my shower fixtures?

If your bath or shower faucet drips, you can fix the old shower valve and faucet with a few inexpensive replacement parts. (If the spout and handles are worn, you can change them out, too.) But if it's a new style you're after or features like preset temperatures or anti-scald protection, it's time for replacement.

What makes a universal shower valve so durable?

The universal tub and shower valve are made of brass. This makes the valve very durable. You won’t have to get new valves or having plumbing issues now and then since the valve is made from durable material. It is built to last. It also includes a pressure test cap. This cap is heat resistant.

Are there tub / shower valves that are interchangeable?

If they do have the trim and not the valves, then it is a problem with the company, not Price Pfister. Re: Are Tub/Shower Valves Interchangeable? First, you absolutely CANNOT mix manufacturers on trim and rough-in valves. In fact, even within one manufacturer, they have many valves and the trims are not interchangeable.
