    Default shower & tub diverter systems?????

    with all the choices out there, it certainly is a mystery. i`m converting from a two valve to a one valve setup and for me there are just too many to choose from. it doesn`t appear consumer reports covers this. only shower heads. i know i want chrome but that`s it. i`m not looking for a high end valve. just how do i know if it`s good quality and easy maintenance. thanks out there

    Stick with a well know brand, common in your area. Delta is probably the best know and most widely used valve brand out there. I've never had a problem with them, they're easy to maintain and repair when necessary. As for the diverter style, the most common is a pull-up plunger on the tub spout which blocks the flow of water to the tub and diverters it up to the shower head.

    If you don't care about controlling volume, Kohler has a durable finish and great service record. Moen is also good. Delta is not bad but I think they still use rubber seats and metal springs. True you can find the parts easy enough, but at the same time that tells you something.
