Single Handle Moentrol Pressure Balanced and Volume Control Tub and Shower Trim with Single Function Showerhead from the Monticello Collection
No plumber required
I finally found the faucet to replace my 20+ year old Moen with this Moentrol unit. I did not realize until I got it installed that the handle is not flush with the escutcheon so it looks a bit awkward to me. It's a bit wobbly when you pull it out as a result. The best news is I didn't have to change the plumbing behind the tub and shower and it certainly looks much nicer than the acrylic knob basic model we had.

I like the Moentrol idea to begin with. For relatively low cost I was able to upgrade the fixtures in both baths without the expensive valve replacement.
One complaint which is slight enough not to change my rating is that there's no arrow indicator on the opposite end of the handle to point at the hot and cold markers on the valve plate. My wife was trying to point the end of the handle toward those markings, vs the other side of the handle. She would do something like that though. :-)

Like this but...
The backing to the hot/cold handle feels kinda like plastic, looks nice, but wished that was more substantial.

Nice, heavy duty faucet and handle control. Looks up to date. Too bad the shower head is made of plastic. Other than that, I like it very much. Excellent price. Installation was easy once I got the old parts off (which was not easy). Had to take a hacksaw to the 30 year old spout. Added a new valve cartridge (recommended).

update Moen controls
We bought this equipment to replace our dated gold-coloured trim on our Moen bathroom equipment, with more modern chrome equivalents.
This looks to be a very good product, but I have not yet installed it.

Only thing that I can say is that the piece that is for the shower head that is to sit on the wall is plastic...WHY!! That is so cheap. Otherwise very nice.
