    I'm new to the forums and I'm looking for some advice.

    I'm redoing old bathtub plumbing and I'd like to have a bath filler, shower head, separate handheld and a ceiling rainshower.

    I've narrowed it down to Moen and Delta. I've always liked Moen but they don't seem to have the right configuration I need.

    With Moen I would use:

    Shower Head, Tub Filler & Handheld
    3520 valve
    3372 diverter
    128284 twin ell

    Rain Shower
    3520 valve

    Cap off the top shower outlet and feed the diverter from the tub filler twin ell. Kingsley trim for everything with a tub filler diverter.

    On the other hand, I could do everything a bit more simply with Delta.

    R10000-UNBX valve
    47201 cartridge
    R11000 Diverter (3 position/6 options)
    T17T455-CZ trim with tub filler and tub filler diverter
    T11955-CZ Diverter trim

    This Delta setup would let me control all three items from the diverter (plus letting me mix them) and just have one simple valve controlling the temp and volume. I'm not sure if you would use the twin ell plumb on this since I think the shower and tub fill outlets are the same gpm.

    I'm just stuck in neutral and can't seem to get straight answers from my plumbing people. I'd sure appreciate any tips and recommendations!

    Thanks,
    Edward

    Moen is simply repairable, not so much with delta. Actually as a Plumbing heating system and cooling Servicer I have never suggested delta, Moen is better all times

    Thanks for your input!

    I decided to separate the tub spout from the whole shower assembly and that made it much easier to configure. Unfortunately Moen just doesn't have the trim and diverter I need so I will probably go with Delta or Brizo and hope for the best.
