I assume you are talking about anti-hammer devices??? I have never seen them on a shower faucet, no requirement that I know of. They are generally for gadgets with electromechanical vales that close quickly, like washers, DW, toilet valves, etc. Usually, one about 2-3ft, at the water inlet to the house is good enough.
