Shower handle

Has anyone changed out their single shower handle? If so, what product did you use. I would like to have my DH change ours to one that has a wider water change area. We have never had ours at the right temperature; when it is too hot, we can touch it and it goes cold. We touch again and it returns to too hot.

nearly everyone replaces theirs with the Oxygenics Body Spa units and they are overwhelming loved and superior to anything else.

I agree - there is no better shower HEAD than the Oygenics. We have had one for many many years. But what I am referring to is the shower HANDLE. We have never had a problem before, but the single handle in the Trlogy is too touchy without enough graduation to adjust it properly.

It won't help the range sensitivity I plan to change our handle to a knob that will be less prone to being bumped

I originally posted on this same issue last year but at that time no one else had a problem. It is extremely difficult to get the temperature set correctly. If anyone has found a solution, please advise.

If your talking about a single handle faucet in your shower why not replace it with a dual knob faucet (hot & cold)? Easy to do (typically) and not expensive.

So it's not hard to replace a single handle faucet with duals? I'm thinking drilling holes which does not excite me.

Yes there could be some drilling and patching since it is a different style of valve body

Don't forget the plumbing may be radically different also. The single valve is side entry ports, the H/C handles are usually back entry. I'd go to a home supply store and pick out something like yours. Problem may be leakage in the control valve body and subsequent oversupplying either water source.
