Whats the Rule of Thumb for Bath/Shower Valve hight
I'm installing a Shower/Bath Set
I can't seem to find out what the average measurements are for the Valve body for a New rough in that has a Bathtub.(I have gotten so many Different measurements)
The bathtub...I have to take into account is a (15" Tub-the lip makes it 16"),
How high does the valve body need to be so when you need to add more hot water.
You don't have to stand up just to reach the tap to add water
but not so low to when you have a shower you have to reach down to adjust the water.
30" from the Lip of the Tub seems very high
Also the Spout how high off the lip of the tub does it need to be,is 8" really the common height.
I was told 5" for Spout and 13-14" for the Valve Body and the shower head is the size I want.
But I have also been told 36" for the Valve body from the floor,my Grandmothers shower is 36" and a few other peoples too????
I have already put the elbow at 81" and the water will come right at my head,it's just the Valve body/spout I'm fighting with as I can't seem to find a 100% right answer.
Any help would be great thanks
