What's a decent quality tub/shower valve that won't break the bank? Looking for recommendations.

Plain old chrome

Want the diverter in the tub spout.

want the hole kit with tub spout and shower arm, shower head and trim. Not fussy about which trim, it's just a summer camp.

Model #s if possible
Thanks

    Any basic Moen. Several different style lines. Basic valve is the same and can take different "trim" kits.

    moen discontinued the best shower valve ever made the moentrol. now they have the m core 3. most new shower valves cant control the volume of water coming from shower head anymore. so if you leave the flow restrictor in you dont have enough pressure but if you take it out you may have to much pressure no way to control it. by default i would have to say m core 3

    I'd say chicago faucet, Kohler, or T&S for a camp and them to not destroy it. Moen and delta's main advantage used to be they were cheap and decent but they aren't cheap anymore and in a camp you need commercial but not particularly pretty.
