    So I need to replace the shower valve and accessories. I've done a lot of other smaller plumbing jobs around the house but I need to learn more about this one before I cut into the wall and hack up the lines. I was hoping someone could provide me direction on where to go for the best info on how to do this.

    Also, I would appreciate suggestions on what valve to get. Most of the ones at ******* are the screw on type. However, I think you still need to braze that fitting on to copper pipe. Wouldn't it just be best to find one with copper pipe attached and then just braze on a union?

    I'll try and post pictures of the situation tonight. I think that would help provide the best description of what I'm faced with.
