    Default Can you name the most common brands of faucet and shower valve makers in order

    Please list the top 10 brands if you can think of that many. I am trying to identify a shower valve and can only think of Moen, Delta, Crane, Kohler, Stirling, Price Pfister. Don't you just love it when a company is so proud of their products, they don't put their name on it? Leads me to think that it might be foreign made.
    I just don't know on this one. TIA for any thoughts or help.

    Do you have the handle(s)? Quite often you can determine the manufacturer by the handle. Even very generic/simple handles have slight details that distinguish the company.

    If you have the handle, bring it to a plumbing supply house, maybe they can help.

    If it's the one in the photo you posted, try Moen. Call them, they are very helpful.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have installed hundreds of Moen valve cartridges and do not recall any looking like this one. I will take the handle to the supply house and see if those guys know what it is. Thanks again.
