  • What kind of shower valve is this?

    I had to take a failed shower valve apart today. The customer would like the valve repaired but I don't know the make or model of this faucet. The trim kind of looks like Sterling to me but I can't find it on the Sterling Website. Hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction.


    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

        It's doing fine. No real problems. The Bosch 'standard' blades are POS for snow usage. No one in my area has winter blades that fit the 2013 Sprinter so I had to order online. Fuel economy is averaging 17 mpg and the first 2 gallons of DEF got me 7701 miles. DEF average usage per the manual is 3233 mpg so I did pretty well. The stock tire is also no good for snow. That will be changed when these tires wear out.

            diesel emission fluid. it's a urea mix that's injected into the exhaust to help break it down in the converter. newer tier diesel engines can use SCR, which uses the urea mix, or EGR, which recirculates exhaust gas back into the engine.
