 Which other brands can be used to replace existing Price-Pfister shower fixtures?
Author: Property By Landmark (CA)

We are replacing Price-Pfister shower fixtures in the master bath in a rental. The existing fixtures have three handles (hot on the left, shower/bath diverter in the middle, cold on the right).

I've given up on finding replacement fixtures in the existing brass color, as no one seems to carry brass anymore and it looks dated. Price-Pfister offers it only in chrome or chrome w/ gold trim--which will look terrible with the existing tile and force us to change out everything in the whole bathroom (including light fixtures above two sinks).

If it all has to be changed out, I'd rather go with an oil-rubbed bronze look, but the ONLY brand I can find the three handle shower fixtures in is "Kingston Brass." Can anyone tell me if Kingston Brass fixtures will fit the existing Price-Pfister plumbing? I really don't want to have to rip out any tile!!! Any suggestions??? Thanks!

Unless they have dropped it, I have gotten oil rubbed bronze trim for three handle Price Pfister faucets.

NO OTHER BRAND will fit. Not to pick on you, but for the benefit of other listeners.....ALL shower handles and trim are unique to a specific brand and model. There is NO INTERCHANGEABILITY. On occasion, you will find a line of so-called universal fit. I can assure you that they are completley unacceptable. The dimensions are never quite right from an appearance standpoint, and the hokey adapters they MUST use to fit on the stems are a joke.

i believe the op is talking about another valve fitting into the holes in the wall left by their current valve which should be just about any 3 handle valve they can find

I was referring to his original statement that PP does not make ORB finish for the valve he has. I have obtained those parts in ORB previously. In fact, I have a set in my truck right now.

i wouldnt put any $ into new trim for an antique/garbage mixing valve

w/ a remodeler plate you can cut the tile out and replace it from the front w/o redoing the tile

i would just open up behind the tub/shower and replace the valve from behind...

get a modern mixer
