need plumber...divers please read..

Alright.. I can do lots of things in life, but plumbing is not one of them.. I need someone who might be able to help... We can trade scuba trip/fishing trip, or just good old cash..also I can work on the older yamaha's and know then like the back of my hand so that might be worked out...anyway I bought a new bathtub fixtures, as they have been past due for replacement... The only help I need is installing the valve that goes thru the wall which the lower faucet mounts too, its the one that has 4 inlets.. we already cut out the wall, so access is done.. Plumbing and myself dont mix... Maybe someone knows a plumber that could help.. I called several and they want a ton of money.. seemed way to much to just install one valve..I can do the rest once valve is installed.. any info would be great.. thanks.. and dive season is right around the corner..
Little info about my diving...
I have 2510 proline loaded with electronics and TONS OF GPS NUMBERS
so if a dive trip is in mind that would be no problem.. It will include two divers.. just let me know if we can work something out... thanks...

Using Shark bites is the best way to connect your tubing. Simple matter of cutting the CPVC or copper to the correct length and fully snap the Bite on them. Turn the water back on slowly to be sure that the Bite has gone down on the tubing far enough ( very important) and you dont have any leaks. If you do, shut off the water and try pushing harder until you get that " click".Be sure to pay attention to the "up" designation on the valve. Leave the black plastic spacing ring on so you can adjust the depth of the valve to the surface of your wall board. I just got done ripping out my bathtub and building a shower stall in its place. You can do it.
I'd be happy to help if need be. I'm up in Chiefland, Fl.
PM me if you chose.
If you are enjoying the sunrise, then you made it through yesterday.
