How to remove the escutcheon plate:

Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the escutcheon screws. This may be difficult to remove from the wall as there may be caulking/sealant around the outer edge.

With the use of a Moen 145058 adapter kit (Sold Separately), the shower valve below will accept many Moentrol trim kits that uses a 7" round escutcheon, except for the Flara, Doux, Weymouth, Arris, 90 Degree or Voss product lines.

Hi,

I am trying to figure out what a trim kit is and what does it usually include?

Our house was built in 1998. I want to do a semi-remodel on our master bath without spending a small fortune.

I've started on my way to freshening it up by painting the vanity a dark french roast, with new onyx porcelain floor tile (a marble look), FS paint in a gorgeous medium green, new lighting and a satin nickle sink faucet. I'm not planning on spending a king's ransom, by any means. Or not a typical HGTV budget, anyway.

We are also putting new flooring throughout the house.

Goodbye yucky carpet!

(By the way, both bathrooms previously had CARPET!)

Problem is, that we have a 3 piece, tub filler/shower with a single acrylic knob set made by Delta from 1998. I'm assuming that since it is from that era, that it doesn't have the valves, flow and thermostatic controls etc. that the modern faucets do.

I do know that when my husband turns on the outside spigot to water the lawn, I will scream if I'm in the shower.

My question is, how do I improve the cosmetic features without tearing out the whole wall for a new system? (It is already tiled in white 4x4 and that's OK for now.

(It is not financially reasonable at this time to re-tile it, nor, tear out the wall.)

Would a trim kit do the trick? Is that what I need?

What specs do I shop for?

How do I figure out what the rough-in is like without ripping out the walls? Is there any way to get the model, collection name, or just some specs?

I can't find anything on the faucet itself other than the Delta name.

It's very confusing and a time consuming self education in order to try to find plumbing answers. Plus, I have a lot going on right now with the kitchen and the rest of the house getting new flooring and paint in the next few weeks. (Choosing paint, OMG!)

So, that's why I came here.

We can always synchronize the time for showering and watering the lawn.

I just want some nice looking shower and bath faucets to go with my other upgrades.

HELP!

Thanks for any info. Much appreciated!

What is Valve Trim?

Made up of stems, seating surfaces, gate seating surfaces, and other necessary internal parts, valve trim kits include everything you need for a functioning tub or shower faucet. Used in all types of valves, including kitchen faucets and more, valve trim is integral in the use and operation of any valve based application. Typically, the term refers to bathroom trim, and more specifically shower valve trim.

How to Shop for Tub and Shower Trim

Perhaps the main thing you need to take into account when buying trim is what type of valve trim you need. Are you replacing shower valve trim (for the purposes of this example, let’s talk shower)? Then act accordingly; trim cannot be interchangeably used. Interestingly enough, this also goes for valve trim brands. If you have a Delta brand faucet, you will not be able to use a Moen trim kit to repair it. You must be consistent in both brand and type to make sure your faucet system works. Other important factors to keep in mind are:

  • Size: If the shower valve trim kit is a different size than the previous one you had, you may run into difficulties. Stick to the same size and same type, if you are not replacing your current faucet.
  • Color: The outer elements of a trim kit are visible to users of the shower, so make sure you choose a color that you enjoy from a décor perspective.
  • Price: Though valve trim kits are specialized, you shouldn’t have to overspend on these elements. Price compare—even within the brand—to find the one that best fits your budget.

In the end, all shower valve trim is very specialized and specific to the type of faucet you have. With that in mind, it might be best to buy your faucet and trim at the same exact time, so you don’t have to worry about purchasing an incompatible trim kit. It will help you immensely when all is said and done.
