    And this is exactly why when we do remodels we ask the GC what the depth of the tile to finish wall is and we write it on the stud in the wall. So if the finger is pointed at me when the depth is wrong, I can say, let’s cut the wall open and if I’m wrong I’ll pay. And if I’m not, you’ll pay.

    This pos company that made that stuff will not have any repair cartridges available in a few years.
    I am telling you, get a major mfr's fixture rather than pursue this off-brand disaster further.
    And: NEVER buy a shower fixture that does not have integral stops.
