How do I fix a valve shower to a solid block wall?

Customer Question

How do I fix a valve shower to a solid block wall?

Expert:  theplumber717 replied 2 years ago.
Is the block wall going to be exposed after the install? or a wall built in front of it?
Expert:  theplumber717 replied 2 years ago.
If the block wall is the finished product, use plastic anchors, a hammer drill to drill the holes for them, and 2 hole straps, all found at your local hardware store, If a wall is going to be built in front, reply to this, or if you have more questions on this install. Thanks gary

It is a finished wall withl splash/aqua wall panels already fitted.

Expert:  theplumber717 replied 2 years ago.

Are splash/aqua wall panels (block, or some kind of synthetic? Im not familiar with that term. From what i just looked up this is just cement board, which is meant to be tiled over, is this what you have? if so are you going to tile over the board? Again the plastic anchors is the way to go to mount it.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No the wall boards are a finished product. So no tiling needed.

This depends on the type of shower if its a Bar shower you will need to Purchase something like this.
