It’s important to discuss the position and height of the body sprays with your plumber during the planning and installation of your shower.
Shower Valve Options
- Mixing Valve – This valve type mixes cold and hot water lines, but does not have the pressure-balance capability, so the temperature of the water will fluctuate when pressure is dropped.
- Pressure-Balance Valve – These valves allow you to turn the shower on and off as well as control the temperature with one handle, keeping water temperature consistent by adjusting the pressure of the hot and cold water inflow. In doing so, the pressure of the water may fluctuate a bit.
- Thermostatic Valve – This type of valve is similar to the pressure-balance valve in that it keeps consistent water temperature after being set, but it differs because it is able to maintain constant pressure as well. Some manufacturers feature a separate handle for temperature, and for water pressure, each being able to adjust separately from one another but fixed on the same trim plate. Other brands feature thermostatic valves that have their own handle and trim plate, and are required to use in conjunction with volume control valves.
- Volume Control Valve –Volume control valves that are used with thermostatic valves allow the user to independently adjust the pressure of all functions in their shower from one another, but maintaining the same temperature from one to the next.
- Steam – For a truly spa-like experience add a steam generator to your shower. Get a steam spray nozzle in the same finish as the rest of your shower fixtures and a generator sized exactly for your shower space.
- Digital Controls – Control all the functions in your shower with the touch of a button. Some are designed to control temperature and water pressure for up to 2 functions, and others are able to control a whole custom shower experience with multiple heads, body sprays, steam, and even lights.
