Re: Shut off valve ffor shower
Some shower faucets are equipped with stops hidden behind the escutcheon plate. If yours is too, they are one each side of the faucet handle and can be turned with a screwdriver.
Since we're on the subject of showers, if your hot and cold are reversed (hot on the right), you can usually fix it by removing the cartridge, turning it 180 degrees, then replacing it.

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
