I've got an old shower in my rental apartment with separate hot and cold valves. It's nearly impossible to maintain a temperature, and I'd like to remedy this. Looking at the photo of the valves
, moving from left to right the valves are for hot, shower/tub, and cold. I'd like to convert this dual-valve setup so it uses a thermostatic valve. Can anyone tell me if this is possible, what parts I need, and how much a plumber might charge for the labor?
