<< New home, gonna replace shower, tub, rock, tile ....
I want to buy shower tub faucet. I also want to replace the main valve that
is in the wall. What is that called and is it part of the tub and shower
faucet package. >>
Before you start do a whole lot of research. Get catalogs from major suppliers
(Kohler is especially good, beautiful stuff, fit for lottery winners) and study
the offerings. Most will show complete bathrooms with listings of all the
components. Be prepared to spend about twice what yoiu think it will
cost...(been there, done that). The tub/shower faucet control assemblies may be
separate from the doodad behind the wall, because that assembly may control and
limit water temperature. The one I got for my last project was a single control
radar guided top of the line that did serious damage to a $200 bill. But she
was happy with it and that's all that counts in many households.YMMV.
