 How to identify a shower rough-in to missing mixer?
Author: Sloh Trikel (RI)

Situation: (I'm a capable DIY-er, helping a family member)

Exterior beach shower - cold water only.
Shower mixer/cartridge and trim kit were removed & are completely missing from site.
Owner does not know what make/model shower mixer/trim kit was installed, prior to removal & isolation of supply.

Goal: Determine what shower mixer/trim kit matches with the rough-in (see photo), buy & install.

(Want to avoid having to gain access to the rough-in & replace it with all new, if possible).

Can anyone identify what parts I need, based on the photos below? If not, I guess I'll have to open the wall & sweat-in a completely new mixer assembly.

Thanks in advance,


Shower Rough-In: (Valve/mixer/trim kit missing)
