Does anyone have a picture of a pex shower setup?

If anyone has a picture of a pex shower setup including valve and drop ear I would like to see it. Thanks.

No pictures, sorry, you just have to adept to the inlets with pex adaptors, not that hard. We usally pipe copper pipe to the shower head.


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.

If you're doing a Tub/Shower, your tub spout cannot be pex. The flow restriction of the pex fitting is too much, and it automatically diverts some of the water to the showerhead, so it will drip as you fill your tub.

Unless someone else knows of a trick that we haven't come up with......

2 pex adapters are probably more expensive than a 3 foot piece of copper between the valve and showerhead anyway. We always use copper, unless someone absolutely insists.
