  • Not much to go on here. Surely you have a brand name, at least, and maybe a handle design to share. Furthermore, what problem are you trying to solve? – isherwood Feb 22 at 3:46
  • That’s all I have. Just trying to replace it but without all the welding – uri michaeli Feb 22 at 5:23
  • I don't see any "welding" - some soldering of course, and not a lot of it. Are there hidden joints that cause you concern? What's in excess that you think you can get rid of? – mike65535 Feb 22 at 13:23
  • So you want to replace the entire valve? It's not clear at all from your question what you're doing. Please revise it to make that clear. The fact is that you can't do this job without some (de)soldering. It's not a big deal if you prepare well by cleaning and fluxing. – isherwood Feb 22 at 14:14

Any one of a number main line manufacturers' valves will work in your situation. You have what is called simply an in-wall, single handle tub and shower valve. Some soldering will however be required. You could use a pex pipe type valve or even a iron pipe threaded valve that will accept either galvanized pipe or CPVC. However you are still left with adapting to the existing copper pipe. Good Luck.

Why are you wanting to replace the entire valve body? If it is not working, disassemble it and get a replacement insert (guts) for it, they are sold that way or in kits including new handles and escutcheons. Usually to remove it you will just have to put a wrench on that big hex shoulder around the stem. After you remove the insert, you can take it to a good plumbing store or hardware store (with knowledgeable people) and find the right insert by sight.
