    I am currently in the process/planning a bathroom remodel and for the life of me I can't remember the measurements for the rough plumbing of the tub/shower valve. ie...The riser, bumpers, the "outs" for the on/off, cold/hot knobs, the "down" for the tub spigot...etc... I know some of these measurements vary from valve to valve(moen, kohler,etc..), but is there a general "rule of thumb"? Also, what is the typical measurement for the 2" by 4" "blocking" to support the valve?Please help. Thanks Kindly!!!

    why not just install the faucet loose in
    the wall and you are sure to win???

    you can always put a shim in the wall to make it tighten down

    usually with a 2x4 the delta seems to work out pretty
    well installed to the 2x4
