    2 valve shower no mixer I think I need to remove a threaded cap here, but the whole thing wants to spin out behind the wall, but not come all the way out either.

    How to fix this kind? what is it?

    Any help is appreciated... 001.jpg

    these are quarter turn valves also.


    valves are leaking is main issue.

    Kind of disappointed nobody here knows enough to tell me what this is.

    Seems its either a delta or a tuscany brand shower valve.

    the reason it wouldnt come out is the genius who installed it only drilled the holes large enough for the small end of the cap to come through, once I enlarged the holes it just came out the front.

    ******* had a tuscany brand cartridge kit with valve seats and and the long extensions that worked once I ground down the end closest to the valve handle so it went to the end of the retaining cap.

    (the shinier part where my water pump pliers had scraped it).

    No leaks now.

    Hope this helps someone else out in the future. When installing a new shower valve make sure you can remove all components for replacement later.


    This awful shower enclosure is the last thing in this house I havent demo'd and replace yet, mainly because its ONLY a 1 bath home. But its coming up now. SOON.

    Your picture is no help for determining the manufacturer which is why nobody answered your question. But, it is NOT a Delta valve, and if it were, the size of the holes in the wall would be irrelevant. Show us the handles and a picture of a stem which has not been "mutilated".

    It was plenty of help somewhere else, so must be you hj.

    and its fixed 100% no leaks, no drips. Must not be too mutilated.

    So in the future is there is a problem with the pic, please mention it.

    With ZERO responses its kind of hard to assume the pic is no good.

    So are you going to let us know what brand yours was or just complain about the free service? JW

    This is your chance to polish things up.
    Your answer about the brand can help others in the future.
