Changing from one brand showerhead/handle in shower

To a certain extent it's not really all that different whether acrylic or tile.

However, what I have seen is with some acrylic/fiberglass/whatever units is when a too large of an opening had been cut through the acrylic was whoever did the work used a larger piece of plastic...sort of like a piece of corian, 1/4" to 1/2" thick and whatever size or shape was act as a larger cover plate to hide the hole, then the valve and trim kit were installed over that larger cover plate.

The "corian piece" (I'm using "corian" just to describe, I saw one that actually used a piece cut and shaped from a plastic kitchen cutting board) was sealed to the acrylic wall with a bead of silicon, then the valve's trim pieces installed over that.

I think someone on this forum showed photos of doing something like that in a tiled shower. The demo'd too large of a hole when doing valve repair, so they covered the too-large hole something like a square 12" tile set on a diagonal and siliconed in place, then installed the valve trim kit over that tile.

I will backtrack and say that if light "demolition" could be carried out, then an acrylic unit could be different. If you could peel back or remove the wall piece on the valve wall that might give you better access to the valve. Then reinstall that wall piece. Just an idea, but it depends on the structure of the unit. Some are one-piece molded (rigid and probably more difficult to do), others have walls made up from individual pieces.

But with an acrylic unit you could still go through the back side of the wall if need be to access the valve.

Shower trims

With a shower trim, you can set water flow and temperature comfortably using buttons, a lever, or two separate handles. It is your central control unit for successful shower enjoyment. hansgrohe offers you different models and designs – so you can always get trims to match sink, bathtub and bidet. This creates a coherent overall picture in your bathroom.

Different designs: As individual as your wishes

Select from the different hansgrohe style worlds to suit your bathroom ambiance: Avantgarde, Modern or Classic. The faucets also differ from one another in terms of form and contours: angular silhouette or round surfaces. Rounded edges or straight designs. This creates looks of independent elegance.

Shower faucets for exposed installation: Possible with little effort

Exposed-installation faucets are mounted on the wall and can be attached to existing connections with little effort. These are the simple solution if you want to modernize your bathroom. The hose connection is located directly on the faucet. Find out more about exposed-installation faucets.

Concealed-installation shower faucets: Minimalistically fused to the wall

With with hansgrohe concealed-installation shower trims, the technology is hidden behind the wall. This creates more room for your shower enjoyment. Here, the proven hansgrohe iBox Universal is integrated into the wall. You decide which concealed-installation trim you like, thus keeping many options open for later extensions and customizations. Find out more about concealed-installation faucets.

Easy to operate: With a single-hole faucet, two handles or at the touch of a button

hansgrohe shower faucets can be operated via single-lever shower faucet, two-handed mixing faucet or intuitively at the touch of a button (Select). A single-hole faucet of the Talis range, for instance, is scaled back. Its slender pin handle is used to set temperature and water flow. The Logis Classic 2-handle shower faucet is appealing with two nostalgic cross handles. If several showers are in use, such as an overhead and hand shower, the water source is toggled using the diverter on the faucet. With the ShowerSelect range, the switch over is even possible at the touch of a button, thanks to proven Select technology. Select represents utmost shower comfort.

You don't want to compromise when it comes to your shower control? Then learn about our shower thermostats. They automatically compensate for fluctuations, and the set water temperature remains constant. Find out more about the benefits of our shower thermostats.

When Your Pull-Out Shower Handle Doesn't Work

Don't struggle with a stiff pull-out shower handle when a little silicone grease can fix it. Some pull-out handles, such as those on many Price Pfister showers, can slowly become harder to pull out over time. A cartridge replacement can solve the problem, but often so can a little lubrication.

First, turn off the water to the shower. In most cases, shower shutoff valves will be found in an access hatch behind the shower wall. If you can't find fixture shutoff valves, then you may need to shut off the water to the entire house.

First, disassemble and remove the cartridge. Once disassembled, carefully examine the cartridge. If it is otherwise in good shape, the handle may be sticky simply because the factory lubrication has worn off the cartridge over time.

  • Note: Although the process may differ a little, virtually all single-handle, pull-out shower or tub faucets can be fixed in this way.

Use your finger to apply a light coating of silicone plumber's grease to lubricate.

  • Tip: Make sure to use heatproof silicone plumber's grease for this operation, and not a petroleum-based product, such as Vaseline. Petroleum greases will eventually cause rubber O-rings and seals to decay.

Now, put the cartridge back in and turn the water back on to test the faucet. Turn the shower on and off, then try turning it from hot to cold and back. If it is working properly, you can put the rest of the trim and handle back together and you are done.


Handle shower

Do you need to fix the American standard shower handle? Bathroom fittings from American Standard are what they claim- standard and reliable. They are pretty to look at, merge well with your bathroom and are reasonably priced.

But after a certain time has passed, any high-quality bathroom fitting will need replacement. Shower handles are especially vulnerable because there are valves inside them that can malfunction after a while.

Maybe the handle is corroded, maybe it leaks- whatever it is, there will come a time when you need to fix it.

But before we get to that, let me quickly map out the anatomy of a shower handle for you-

Parts of a Shower Handle and How to Identify What Is Wrong with Them

There are a few parts to the shower handle that you might find confusing when you open it up. So let’s take a look at all of them.

  1. The handle: This is the part with which you control the shower.

  1. The wall plate: Surrounding the handle will be a wall plate, which hides the rest of the assembly from your sight. The wall plate can corrode, so look for that.

  1. The valve: Once you remove the handle and open the wall plate, you will see this white-colored part with a cylindrical shape like a flashlight battery. Its main function is to control the water flow.

  1. Adjuster ring: Right on top of the valve will be a colored adjuster ring, to control water temperature. If the temperature is not being adjusted as it used to, maybe the adjuster ring or the valve itself is malfunctioning.

  1. The cartridge: On removing the valve, you will see the cartridge, which is responsible for the water pressure. You know which part to replace if there is a problem when you twist the handle and water does not come out as it should.

10 Steps to Remove an American Standard Shower Handle:

Materials Required

  • A Philips screwdriver

  • The Allen wrench that came with the shower handle, or a similar-sized one.

Step 1: Disconnecting the Water Supply

Shut off the water supply to the household (that is- if you cannot shut off only the water supply to the particular bathroom that you will be working on).

Step 2: To Avoid Splashes

Open the shower handle and let any water in the pipes drain out. This is required because you will be opening the valve in a second, and you don’t want the excess water to be sprayed on you.

Step 3: Taking Off the Screws

Now, move the handle up. You will see a hole where you can insert the Allen wrench and loosen the set screw that holds the handle.

Step 4: Removing the Handle

Remove the handle by pulling it towards your body. Set it aside and check what you see now that the handle is removed.

Pay attention to the next couple of screws that are holding the wall plate to the bathroom tile. Some companies will not have visible screws here, but American Standard usually does.

These 2 screws are pretty long, so unscrew them slowly. Open up the plate. It will reveal the white-colored valve.

Step 5: Taking the Valve out

The cylindrical valve is nowadays made of rubber-like material (it used to be ceramic!). It is connected to the rest of the cartridge with 3 standard screws.

On top of the valve, you can see the adjuster ring, which is made of colored rubber-like material (in the ceramic type, this ring will be made of colored metal and can be used again with a new valve).

Remove the 3 screws and take the valve out.

Note how the valve was attached to the rest of the structure–you will probably see 1 perfect round hole and 2 squished up holes.

Honestly, not to creep you out or anything, but they look like those skeleton masks from the scary movies, with squished up, downward-sloping eyes and a screaming, open mouth–you get the idea.

The perfect circle would have been on the top–note that alignment and place the valve aside.

Step 6: Taking the O-ring Off the Cartridge

Now that the valve is removed, you would have exposed a metallic structure. That is the cartridge. There are 3 flat-head screws that fix an O-ring onto the cartridge.

(You will note that this metallic ring surrounds a structure that corresponds to the round holes that the valve had.)

Remove the flat-head screws and detach the ring from the cartridge.

Step 7: Pulling out the Cartridge

Now there is nothing but simple pressure keeping the cartridge into the wall.

You can pull out the cartridge with your screwdriver as a wedge (because your fingers may not be able to get a hold of the cartridge when it is fully inside the wall).

Step 8: Repair Damages (If Any)

Now that the cartridge is out, there is a large hole in your bathroom wall.

You can clean that cartridge-sized hole, check for any damage in the cartridge, and replace it if it is damaged.

Note how there are two colored rings on the hidden side of the cartridge when it was inside the wall. These are the snap-on connections to your waterlines. There will be two corresponding holes in the wall.

So when you replace/reinstall the cartridge, you need to make sure that these rings are correctly aligned with those holes. Then you push the cartridge in all the way and attach the O-ring.

Step 9: Put the Valve Back in

If all is well with the valve as well, you can reinstall it. Or replace it with a new one if it is damaged.

Align it correctly with the skeleton-faced holes, and put the screws back on.

There is a rubber piece where the handle will attach to the large valve. Make sure that this is aligned correctly as well so that there will be no gap when you attach the handle.

Step 10: Re-bolt the Wall Plate and Re-attach the Handle

At this stage, before you put the wall plate back, you can just slide in the shower handle and switch on the water supply to see that there is no leakage.

If anything leaks, you probably need to double-check the alignments and tighten them up.

If all is well, re-attach the wall plate with its 3 standard screws, and the shower handles with its small set screw.

Like other household plumbing jobs, removing shower handles are too simple to be thrust upon a plumber, whom you have to pay.

On the other hand, learning these tips and tricks saves you money, all the while making you cooler in the eyes of your friends and family!

Just a tip, though: when you are dismantling anything including a shower handle, always keep a note of the order in which you take out things, the screws that go to each phase, and the way in which the parts are aligned.
