DIY Shower Remodel
So I finally got tired of the low pressure our old Delta 300 showers were putting out. It was time to replace our wall mounted shower valves and shower heads. There are a ton of options when it comes to valve and shower replacement. I was looking for something inexpensive but high quality.
Here are a few steps to choose the right wall mount shower:
Step 1: Decide on your budget and functions
I was was wanting a quality shower with my budget in mind. I was wanting something not fancy but functional with good water pressure under $100 dollars. There are multiple options for that price point.
Step 2: Look at online reviews
Reviews on sites like HomeDepot.com or Lowes.com are extremely helpful and can give you a general idea and direction on your purchase. Usually people will give an honest opinion on their purchase especially if they are really happy or really disappointed.
Step 3: Quality matters and brand name matters
I ended up buying Moen Adler Shower fixtures based on positive customer reviews, Moen’s lifetime warranty and support, ease of installation, installation options, and price.
Step 4: Ease of installation and maintenance
Cartridge maintenance is a snap in case of a seal leak. Cartridges come out easily by removing a pin and pulling the cartridge out with some needle nose pliers.
