I need some advice with choosing what parts I will need to replace the system that I have in this link https://photos.app.goo.gl/wEEgPqZYov4evxTx9 . I have the same photo here https://photos.app.goo.gl/8gQH86Qf25Hxz4R69 that will allow me to talk about each section easier.

The reason I am replacing it is because there is a constant and heavy drip from the bathtub spout that I have already tried to repair by replacing the stem. The stem I have replaced at least 5 times over the past 2 years is this https://www.lowes.com/pd/Danco-Brass-Faucet-Stem-for-American-Standard/3606380. The cold side is the one that is causing the drip.

I am considering replacing my system with this https://www.lowes.com/pd/Pfister-Pf...and-Valve-Included-Polished-Chrome/5005517075.

Is there any other parts that you would recommend that I replace as well to make this more effective? From my "research" I have found that poly-b isn't great and that's what I believe I have, right? Should I replace 2 and 3? what about 4 and 5? If so, what should I use to replace them?

Do you recommend that I try something else?

Thank you for your help!

The system you have is an abomination.
You need a professional plumber and get rid of the grey piping if you are able...
