  • Protect your eyes with safety glasses when cutting or soldering water
    supply lines.


  • If you solder the joints during installation, the seats, cartridges, and washers
    must be removed before using a flame or the warranty will be voided on
    these parts.
  • Cover the drain to avoid losing parts.


Before beginning the assembly of the product, make sure all parts are present. Compare parts with the package and hardware contents list. If any part is missing or damaged, do not attempt to assemble the product. Contact customer service for replacement parts.
Estimated Assembly Time: 30 minutes
Tools required for assembly (not included): adjustable wrench, thread sealant tape, strap wrench, Phillips head screwdriver, silicone installation may vary depending on how the previous tub and/or shower faucets were installed. Supplies necessary for the installation of the product are not all included; however, they are available wherever plumbing supplies are sold. Prior to beginning installation, turn off the hot and cold water lines, then turn on the old faucet to release built-up pressure. When installing the new tub and/or shower faucets, hand tighten the connector nuts. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. Connections that are too tight will reduce the integrity of the system.

  • Shut off water supply to the tub and shower. Verify that the hole sizes and position of the holes in the wall are correct.
    IMPORTANT: Complete valve replacement is required for this tub/ shower unit. An access hole  must be cut with enough room to install the new tub/ shower valves inside the wall. Professional installation  is recommended.
    CAUTION: Do not use PEX tubing for pipe from the valve to the tub spout.
  • Unscrew the screws (2.1), and remove the plaster guard (2.2).
  • Tub and shower outlet connections: Wrap thread sealant tape around the pipe threads in a clockwise direction as shown. Connect the hot and cold water supply lines (3.1) (not included), the shower (3.2) (not included), and the tub outlet pipes (3.3) (not included) to the valve body (D). Connect the pipe elbows (4.4)  (not included) to the ends of both pipes, and tighten with a wrench.
    NOTE: Be sure to position the valve body (D) correctly in the wall, with the markings “UP” facing upward.  The hot water supply lines go into the H inlet, and the cold water supply lines go into the C inlet. DO NOT  USE PEX or CPVC between the valve and spout.
  • Flushing water lines:Turn on the water. Place the handle (G) on the valve body inverter (D) and turn the  handle (G) to the full on mixed position. Turn on the hot and cold water supply lines and allow the water
    to flow from the outlets for one minute, or until all foreign debris has been flushed out. Check for leaks. Shut
    off the water at the faucet and supply lines. Remove the handle (G).
  • Place the plaster guard (5.1) onto the valve body (D) and secure the screws (5.2).
  • Shower arm, flange and tub spout installation: Insert the long end of the shower arm (B) through the flange  (C), then wrap thread sealant tape aroung the long end of the shower arm (B) in a clockwise direction.

    4-3/32 in. from the finished wall to the  lower pipe elbow (6.4) (not included). Thread the tub spout (H) onto the threaded connection in a clockwise direction until the tub spout (H) becomes flush with the finished wall. Use a wrench to tighten the tub spout (H).
  • Before installing the escutcheon (E), remove the plastic cap (7. 1) from the valve body (D) by twisting the cap (7. 1in a clockwise direction.
  • Checking for leaks: Turn on the water. Place the handle (G) on the valve body inverter (D) and turn the handle (G) to the full-on mixed position. When the valve is turned on, water normally flows through the tub spout (H). To activate the shower, turn the valve on and pull the tub spout knob (8.1) up. Hold the tub spout knob (8.1) until the water flows continuously from the shower arm (B). Check for leaks. Shut off the water at  the faucet and supply lines. Remove the handle (G).
  • Adjusting the Temperature: Unscrew the sleeve (9.1) from the valve body (D). Unscrew the screw (9.2) and remove the inverter (9.3) from the valve body (D).

For hotter water, adjust  the red limit stop ring (11.1) in a counterclockwise direction and reinstall the red limit stop ring (11.1)
    onto the cartridge assembly (11.2).
    NOTE: A thermometer (not included) can be held in the water stream to aid in reaching the desired water temperature.

The handles control the flow of hot and cold water to the faucet. Turn the right handle for cold water. Turn the left handle for hot water. Rotating the handles opens the cartridges and causes water to flow from the spout. The degree of handle rotation determines the volume of water flow. Returning the handles to the original position stops the flow of water.


Clean periodically with a soft cloth. Avoid abrasive cleaners, steel wool, and harsh chemicals as these will dull the finish and void your warranty.
