What transfer valve assembly & escutcheon plate goes with this?
I am replacing my old acrylic ball-type handles with lever handles on my old style 3-handle tub/shower. The plastic D-stem cover on the transfer valve is positioned so that the installed handle goes East to West instead of North to South when changing from shower to tub. What type of transfer valve assembly is recommended for the correct handle operation?
Also, I was curious if you could recommend an escutcheon plate that might look like it coordinates with the new handles better.
Thanks for your help.
Hi TeresaCo, Thank you for your question. The H577 handle is not the correct size handle for a 3 handle tub/shower faucet, it is made for the transfer valve on a deck mounted roman tub faucet. The correct sized handle in the same style is the H277. Unfortunated there is not a way to change the positioning of the diverter handle to an up and down motion. The RP17730 should be the diverter assembly and the RP18090 and RP18276 are the screw on escutcheons that are still available for the 3 handle tub/shower faucets.
