Shower diverter


I have 2 walk in showers to do and I want to put the diverter on one end and the shower head on the other. 1/2" pex. Is there any water pressure issues doing it this way? 1 shower is 32x 40 long and the other is 32x60 long

I do not understand, Do you mean "shower valve" instead of "diverter"??

Shower diverter


i am a big fan of the rainfall type of shower head and plan to put one directly in the ceiling when I do my remodel... not sure why, if you were still going to have the shower head on the wall, that you wouldn't put the valve on the same wall... seems like extra pipe for no reason.

Shower diverter


There's going to be 3 feet of glass at the shower head end and a 2 foot opening at the other end. Rather than having to walk into the shower and turn it on I could turn it on and wait for the temperature to be right instead of getting blasted with cold water. I want to put it as I described above. The issue is, the water pressure. I"ve been around this stuff a long time but I wanted to check with the pro's if this is feasible.

It is feasible, just don't run that overhead line in an unconditioned space, or it could freeze and bust.
