Default Hi... I’m new. I really need some help

Hi, my name is Sean and I live in rural wine country of California.

Anyhow I have got a problem that google just can’t seems to answer for me. I doing a bathroom remodel. Ripping down the shower backing and some drywall as well. I need to rework the shower plumbing.

I have replaced the valve stems in the past. The replacement parts I have used is Danco 9C-7H & 9C-7C. The problem is that I can not find a trim kit to go with these valves.

Seriously thinking about tearing out the copper plumbing behind the wall. But I really don’t want to because I have a lot of other work to do in that bathroom. On a time table as well.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
—Sean

rip out all the copper and replace with pvc, at least 1 1/2 pipe to give extra boost to water pressure, in the end you will be glad you did...

The funny thing is, this OP didn't even ask a question, just made some statements.

To the OP, hire a professional licensed plumber to do the plumbing work, just stick with installing the tile and cabinets.

Nice jab Tango.

But I know my plumbing (outdoors). I work the irrigation for a large facility. So my experience is all 6” water main down to 2” systems. Where everything makes sense. The parts just say what kind of threading it has.

Now I move inside. I can’t find the damned parts.

So two questions. Would any other valve stems thread in to the existing copper? The stems in there now are Danco 9C-7H replacement for Kohler.

Is there even one trim kit for my existing stems?
