    hi & happy holidays from Toronto... i live in a 15 year old condo that has a Valley shower control that leaks pretty bad when i turn it on... i don't know how to get to the "core" of the fixture...a chrome coloured plastic cover (about 6" square) hides everything and i don't see any set screws or clips, etc. to remove... i'm afraid i'll break it if i pry it off with a screwdriver... are there hidden clips inside somewhere?

    as mentioned, it's about a 6" square plastic cover ( about 2" deep and surface mounted) with a black plastic wheel in the centre ... i've removed the decorative strip from the wheel, but i don't see any screws that aid in removal...

    any advice/thoughts would be greatly appreciated

    Valley of course is history, but most repair parts are still available from the aftermarket manufacturers. Parts like escutcheons, flangesm, and handles are more difficult. There are some replacements, but not necessarliy exact matches for what you have.

    Some Valley handles had a set screw on the side of the handle ( underside).

    Check websites for repair parts and you can possibly find an exploded diagram.

    our description does not match any Valley tub/shower faucet I have ever seen.
