Butch, I don't know how they are going to assess what certainly appears to be structural issues with the wall and subfloor support now that the floor is already down. Perhaps they will offer reassurances those deficiencies were addressed but, given all we've seen of this job so far, their assurances wouldn't give me the warm and fuzzies.

Let me clarify.
Everything is exposed as of now so repairs can be made.
New construction won't start for another 2 weeks or so.

Shower head and handheld rough in question (video)

Having a hard time finding good help so I'm hoping someone can assist with this question. My new tile contractor doesn't do the rough in and the plumber was supposed to check this but I guess he didn't. Please see video.

Is this a tub/shower? If so, you CANNOT run pex to the tub spout...the ID is too small, and it will put back pressure on the supply, and push water out of the shower heads unless you have a quality diverter valve to prevent it.

If you're asking whether the plumbing is at the proper depth, can't say without knowing what you are planning for the finished wall. There is a min/max allowed for the placement in order for the trim to fit. Note, some people do NOT like the look if the whole thing sticks out too far. Technically, it's okay if the trim fits, aesthetically, you may not like it. There is no easy fix for the valve body being too far out, and the 'fix', if it's an option, may not look great. Not all valves have an extension kit if the thing ends up too deep.

Jim, I've combined him again with his original thread and I think we see that no tub is involved. 'Course I been misled before.

No tub.
Allowing 1" for kerdi, tile, thinset.
Delta/Brizo fixtures.
Just need to know if mixing valve and diverter need to be on the same plumb line or not as they are. Also the shower head and handheld.

I really don’t like those plastic nuts on your plumbing valve/diverter , especially in an enclosed wall area.

Uh so what do I need to have the plumber do. He is coming back tue so things need to get adjusted or fixed.
Are these the wrong rough in fixtures for pex? Are they some universal that needs threaded pieces and ones should have been purchased for pex?
