    Question Roman Tub Valve without Copper?

    Our newly-built house is on well water, and we've avoided using copper to prevent corrosion problems down the road. We are now having trouble finding a roman tub valve that is not made of copper.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks much,
    Sherry

    i say go for the faucet of your choice,at least the faucets exposed and can easily be replaced down the road,make sure you put anti-sieze lubricant on all threaded connections below,that will make changing out a snap

    who knows by the time it shows its wear you may be sick of looking at it anyway...lol

    Thanks for your reply -- the faucet is not made of copper, though. It's the valves that are copper.

    I am hopeful that you can see the picture I've attached and the copper parts. We need something like this that uses bronze or pex.

    thanks!

    fyi to all...I've learned that Moen makes pex valves! Actually found this out from a Delta dealer. Very kind of him to share this important info, and I will remember it when I have a chance to buy Delta faucets in the future.

    Love that good customer service!!
