Custom Showers


Custom showers can help transform any bathroom into a rejuvenating, spa-like retreat. With so many options in style and functionality, your bath can be completely customized to create the shower experience you are looking for.

Things to consider

Depending on the outputs added and hot water demands, your water heater may need to be replaced or upgraded to accommodate a custom shower. The number of outlets selected may also require an increase in the shower drain size. Your plumber can determine the proper plumbing layout and requirement for your customized shower configuration. All rough-in work should be completed by a professional.


  Thermostatic Mixing Valves

These valves mix hot and cold water to ensure constant, safe outlet temperatures and prevent scalding. This mixing valve compensates for variations in both the temperature and pressure of the incoming water supplies to maintain a temperature that is within 1 degree Celsius of the selected temperature. Along with providing immediate response to temperature fluctuation, thermostatic mixing valves also allow high storage temperatures, thereby reducing the risk of exposure to bacteria. The constant temperature regulation also greatly reduces the risk of thermal shock to the fixtures, increasing the lifespan of the faucet.
  Pressure Balanced Mixing Valves

A pressure balanced mixing valve provides constant water pressure to prevent fluctuations in water temperature. Its internal parts are designed to safely maintain water temperature despite pressure fluctuations in the hot and/or cold supply, as when someone flushes the toilet. A requirement in some municipalities, this mixing valve ensures a scald-free environment and a constant temperature within a few degrees Fahrenheit. Check with your plumber to find out if a pressure balanced mixing valve is required in your area.
  Three-Way Diverters

The three-way diverter allows you to alternate between any of your selected shower outputs by directing the water from the shower head to each additional accessory, one at a time. The diverter will not adjust the water temperature or turn the water off or on. You can select a combination of shower heads, body sprays and hand showers to create your own customized shower system. If only two outputs are desired, simply close the third output with a threaded brass plug (provided).
  Diverter and Thermostatic Systems

The diverter and thermostatic shower system features three valves. The upper valve operates as a standard three-way shower diverter, allowing a combination of shower heads, body sprays and hand showers. The middle valve acts as a thermostatic mixing valve and connects conventionally to your hot and cold water supply. The lower valve enables you to have an additional output. This valve operates independently allowing two outputs to be used at one time. This valve is typically connected to the body jet feature, allowing the body jets and shower head to be used simultaneously but can be configured to accommodate any specialty shower design.
  Body Sprays

The addition of body sprays is one of the most popular ways to create a spa-like shower experience. Most body jets are adjustable, so that massaging streams of water can be aimed where rejuvenation is needed most. Body sprays can be arranged in any pattern to best suit your needs.
  Rainfall Shower Heads

Rainfall shower heads provide a truly unique experience. Normally installed from the ceiling, rainfall shower heads cascade water from above to simulate the experience of being soaked by rainfall. Rainfall shower heads come in many sizes and finishes but most have a large head that ranges from 6 to 12 inches in diameter.

Another great addition to a custom shower is a handshower. Handshowers allow complete customization and flexibility with the ability to point the water flow in any direction. Hand showers deliver massaging water streams and rest in a holder installed directly to the wall for convenient storage.
