Dual Shower head installation


To all the professional plumbers. I need help with Dual Shower heads. Also, I reside in the Great state of Texas. I'm remodeling my master bathroom and upon removing all sheet rock and green board, I see the hot and cold water supply feeding a mixer valve / diverter valve going to the shower head.

I have one of those tub spigots when you pull the button up or in my case the ring down it diverts from the tub to the shower head. What kind of valve do i use to allow water to only one head at a time? When reworking and soldering the new configuration should the pipe that goes to the shower head be branched to two separate pipes with some type of shutoff valve? If so please elaborate what type of valve to use. If not please elaborate.

Thank you pics included.

They basically come with a kit with everything you need for the install. It just comes down to how much is in your budget for this.

The problem is that you need enough water pressure that if you are using the shower, someone turning on the garden hose or dishwasher will not starve the shower.
