Replace or just rebuild Delta shower valve?

Post by Chapmanm845 » Wed Dec 02, 2020 7:07 am

Hello, After removing an old surround shower I have the valve assembly exposed and easily accessible. Should I replace the whole valve body or just rebuild it? Will I be able to turn the nuts or will it require soldering. I have the soldering tools available to me but wasn't sure if I should take the easy route of rebuilding. The house was built in 82 and I assume that its original to the house.

Thanks!
