We are currently remodeling our...
We are currently remodeling our master bath which includes adding a garden tub. I was able to get a faucet from someone (free) that includes the tub filler, a hand held shower and a single handle. It doesn't show a name on the box or anywhere on the actual faucet. When the plumber came by to look at it, he was asking about a rough-in kit which obviously wasn't included. Each piece has a valve attached at the bottom...and there were some what looks to be water tubing. My question is this...is there any way of knowing what kind of rough-in kit would be needed. Or since this set apparently came from overseas, I would be better off picking something local?

the first 2 pics show the tub filler. The 3rd and 4th show the handle (pic of underneath inside handle). And then the tubing and pieces included. Last pic is the handheld

From what I can see in your pics this is a Roman tub filler w/spray only. There is no rough in kit needed. But it looks like you have parts missing and this is not a major brand so you won't be able to get parts now or later if it leaks. Your best best is to buy a a new major brand unit.

Ok.. That's what I thought. And that was the issue. If there were to be a problem down the road. I didn't know if there was a universal rough-in kit that was available or something. Thank you.

You're welcome
