Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Twinkiltoes Finally One That Works!
We have been trying to retrofit a 1992 Moen Valve with 2015 fixtures, without hiring an expensive plumber. Can't tell you how many things we've returned because it wouldn't work or was cheap looking or couldn't find matching parts. We finally found this and we are very happy. It's quality and metal not plastic. We didn't have an issue with a floppy handle as some. The handle sticks out far but the spout is longer so doesn't look weird. Only issue is now we have hot on left and cold on right but that is because of the way the new one turns as opposed to the old. Have to pick your battles I guess. Price Pfiester has a how to install Video on their site. This is a great solution. We ordered the brushed silver for our guest bathroom. Very attractive. I have included before and after pictures. We had our tub and tile reglazed also.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony Easy Install & works great
Coming out of the box, I noticed the handle had not-quite-a-scratch-but-some-rubbing-marks on it. Not a huge deal because they won't be noticed by anyone but me. The instructions read to identify which Moen, Pfister, or Delta valve you have and to go from there. The installation was fairly simple even though I don't have a Moen, Delta, or Pfister valve. Everything still fit nicely.
The showerhead has great waterflow! Our water pressure is terrible & I was surprised to see the flow when I turned on the water. I have not had any problems with a loose handle or anything like that.
Overall, the thing:
1. Looks great!
2. Was easy to install
3. Works great!
What else could you ask for?

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alti4 Wonderful upgrade to our bathroom
I got this set to upgrade my bathroom. I had Moen parts already, so I followed the instructions to replace that type of equipment. The packaging was great and none of my parts were scratched. The directions were easy to follow, and it was installed in less then an hour. It looks very high end. The water pressure is better then I have ever had. The 5 function shower head gives you lots of great options. The finish does not show water spots, and wipes clean easily with just a rag. I also found the water handle to be heavy, and it does not stay all the way into position. The handle due to its weight does drop about a 1/2 inch. The only other issue I had with the product is that the handle does not sit flush with the wall, it does stick out about an inch. It still looks great and I am happy with the product. It also did not come with the tub drain or overflow plate, so I purchase them separately. My bathroom now looks very updated. I would recommend this product, I think you will be happy with the finished set up.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fuscia Handle Sticks Really Far Out with Adapter
I was really excited to dress up our one tiny bathroom with the Phister Tuscan Bronze universal shower adapter set. The trickiest part of the installation is the handle. Mine is a Delta Monitor. The hardest part was getting the old handle off, but that was because I've never done it before. The Phister adapter for the new set went on pretty easy, but it made the handle protrude from the wall about 5-6". This just looked to clunky for my taste. I reviewed the instructions and other parts, and I had done everything right. This was pretty disappointing, but at least it was easy to take back off and put my original bland boring handle back on. It appears that if if you have a Delta Monitor as your original handle, the adapter for that is the biggest one. Also, part of the problem could be that our original faucet setup is not as far into the wall as it could or should be.
Another concern I had about the set is the shower head. If the spray pressure isn't good I would then have to find one that did in a matching finish. I found the water pressure to be a little wimpy for me. I need a pressure wash to feel clean. there are 5 spray patterns, I think I tried 4 but all where soft to me. I don't know if there are government mandates concerning water usage, but I find it difficult to find a shower head with decent stay pressure. Over all the set looked and felt like high quality materials. It just wasn't the right fit for my situation.
One last concern, since this is a unique finish, and not typical chrome, my tub drain and drain cover would still be chrome and the rest would be Tuscan Bronze. This would be too mismatched for me, and kinda defeat the purpose. I'm sure I could get a Tuscan bronze drain and cover set somewhere though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by alwaysathomedepot Minor Installation Time, Major Improvement!
I used this kit to update the shower stall. It easily integrated with my old Moen parts behind the tile. The tuscan bronze finish is high quality and really made a big impact to the shower. There are five spray pattern options with a good pressure "rain shower" pattern and focused patterns flanking and combos between each option.This kit was fairly easy to install and looks great.

Did one bath remodel now am doing another. Perfect trim kit. Read what you get this is trim only. Don't purchase looking for internal valve or valve parts then give negative review because you didn't get any in the box.
READ the description.

because it was trim only and I needed to replace the water cartridge that goes into the valve. Returned. was easier to by a complete kit and not use the rough in valve.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tunesmith Glad I found this...
This is a good looking, easy to install product. The installation wouldn't even be considered "plumbing" on any level... The water supply doesn't even need to be turned off! I happened to replace an existing Pfister product, but the other represented brands appeared to be just as easily adaptable. Remember that the alternative to this is to access the original plumbing and replace the valve...that could mean breaking through tiles and then dealing with sweating and unsweating joints in small spaces...a job better left to a professional. If this product works for your situation, and there are specific types of fixtures that it replaces, then I highly recommend it.
