 Old Shower Faucet
Author: Sattju (GA)

My home was built in the 80's and I have this old shower faucet seen here: [imgur.com]

It has recently started cracking and breaking so I need to get it replaced. I do have a feeling that they do not make this type of faucet anymore, but would anyone know if they do? I would like to just replace it instead of having to redo the whole shower and cut into the wall. Also, if the latter is the case, is there an easier route to take to get a new faucet? I'm pretty illiterate when it comes to plumbing so any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

The valve is made by Mixet. New handles are available. Search for "mixet shower handle".

If it is breaking, the core may be getting tight. The new core and handles are readily available.
