    I have a whirlpool tub with a Roman faucet that I need to replace since it is badly corroded. I have checked and there is no access beneath the tub, so I was hoping to just be able to replace the trim. Unfortunately I cannot find any identifying marks on it. So I was wondering if anyone here was familiar with it or recognized the mounting that it fits on. Attached are the pictures of it, with the spout being about nine inches long. Thanks.

    It looks like a Price Pfister. If you post a picture of the stem next to a ruler somebody here will be able to tell you for sure.

    Given the non-PVD brass finish, it puts the age at something over 10 years. The handle style resemble a Moen Monticello. A picture of the cartridge will solve the mystery!

    Pictures of Stem

    Thanks for the help Asktom and jimbo. I have attached some pictures I took of the stem to aid with the identification of the faucet.

    It is Price Pfister, from their Society Finish series. I believe that series is discontinued, but suspect (I haven't tried it) that parts from their newer RT6 series would fit.

    IT is PricePfister, but the "hub" for the spout on the new valves is different from the old one, and cannot always be made to interchange with it. Because of the size of the new stems, the escutheons and holders are also larger on the new ones and will not fit your valve, but some places still carry the old versions. The handle and stem trim for an 8" lavatory faucet is the same as the Roman tub valve.

    I have the same fitting except with the longer stem valves and acrylic handles and would like to change the trim with a Nickel finsh. Did you manage to change out this fitting using the RT6? I contacted Price Pfister becasue I do not have access to the underside of the tub but their advice was to change the entire valve body out!

    I found the following on the PP website and wondered in anyone on this site can advise?

    7.Changing handles/ Updating trim: There are two different stem lengths of stems in this series, the longer ones (910-523) which are available in RHT threads only and are used with Verve (metal) and Windsor (acrylic) handle. The shorter stems (910-300 and 910-310) are used with decorative handles (lever, cross, crystal). If you want to upgrade from Windsor or Verve handles to decorative handles, you must change to the shorter stems as well as replace the trim. If you would like to change the spout without changing the valve body under the tub, you have to replace the spout anchor assembly (975-525). This will accommodate installing new style spouts on old hardware.
