    I have a walk in shower with thick ceramic tile (House built in 60s) and a joist(load Bearing): that will not let the faucet go through the wall enough to connect handles///so I called American Standard they told me I needed a rough in extender kit which I ordered...and my plumber says its still not long enough...can anyone help me?..What I need is an OLD Style faucet built for a 60s home basically...Any ideas/thoughts or whatever would be appreciated..(I don't know why my plumber cant figure something out!)

    It looks like you have some room between the wall and the pipes. Is he just concerned about lining up with the previous pipes in the wall?

    Why would a joist, which should be under the floor, have anything to do with how the faucet is positioned in the wall? How is he managing to make it pressure balanced as required by ALL codes now?

    Pfister makes a 2 and 3 handle faucet with longer stems. If thats not long enough pfister also makes stem extension up to 2".

    That valve has "construction and material code" approval and "ADA approved HANDLES", but it does not indicate, nor do I know how it could be, "temperature/pressure regulated as is REQUIRED for ALL shower valves.
