Custom Showers

I don't want to change my plumbing. What kind of shower can I get?

If you don’t want to modify any of your plumbing, you can get a standard shower, which you can customize with by simply choosing your own configuration options. You can also get a jetted shower, which can give you that spa-like experience without requiring a major overhaul of your entire bathroom.

 

See Your Shower Experience for more information on the options available.

Custom shower

If I do as suggested below. How can a get a hook up or plumbing diagram?

Hi Jacks, Thank you for your question. Shower rough model number should be R10000-UNBXHF. If you plan on using the fixed showerhead from the T17251-PN in addition to the slide bar hand shower and the body sprays you will need the T11951-PN diverter trim, and the 50570-PN wall elbow. If you plan on connecting the 57051-PN hose directly to the shower arm the rest of your set up is correct.
One factor to keep an eye on is the water usage of the various devices and the capabilities of the valve. At 60psi given the valve and trim combination you have listed you will have approximately 5 gallons per minute of available water.
Upgrading to the T17T251-PN shower trim will give you approimately 7 gpm at 60 psi. The fixed showerhead has a 2.5 gpm flowrate and the handshower and each body spray are 2.0 gpm.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Jacks, Thank you for your question. You will first need a shower rough, we recommend the R10000-UNBXHF. Next is the shower trim of your choice. The TempAssure 17T series trims offer the highest flow rate to operate the multiple showerheads/bodysprays. To control which of the devices are used you will need a R11000 diverter rough, and a matching 6 setting 3 port diverter trim. The diverter trim model will start with T119. This will allow you to use each feature individually or any 2 at a time, showerhead & hand shower, showerhead & body sprays, or hand shower & bodysprays. You will also need an additional shower arm and shower arm flange for the 54433 hand shower.
Thanks,
Dave

I want 2 (two) of the Lahara Monitor 17 Series Shower Trims and the Delta 3 Setting H2OKinetic Traditional Raincan Showerhead. I will like to be able to have the option of all three running at the same time or only one or two. What do I need to purchase?

Answer: 
Hi Marie, Thank you for your question. You will need to order the following.
2 qty R10000-UNBXHF roughs
2 qty T17238 shower trims
1 qty R11000 diverter rough
1 qty T11800 diverter trim
1 qty 52687 raincan shower head
1 qty RP61058 ceiling mount shower arm and flange
One of the faucet roughs and trims will be installed as a normal faucet with the valve controlling a single showerhead. The other faucet will be installed with the R11000 diverter and trim. The regular and overhead showerhead will be plumbed through the diverter which will allow you to use the wall showerhead only, raincan shower head only or both at the same time.
You could go with 1 faucet and plumb all three showerheads through the R11000 diverter with a model T11900 trim but you will only be able to use any 2 showerheads at a time, not all three.
Thanks,
Dave

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Slick, Thank you for your question. The recommended cleaning of the showerheads is as follows.
Touch-clean® Shower Heads - wipe the face of the shower head (rubber nubbins) to loosen and break away deposits.
Non Touch-clean shower heads or stubborn deposits - unscrew the shower head and soak it in a 50/50 vinegar and water solution for several hours. For stubborn deposits, rub with a toothbrush.
Depending on the In2ition model that you have, some have the touch clean feature, some do not.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. You can combine body sprays with a tub /shower valve set up. One choice would be the combine the tub/shower valve with the R1827-XO jetted shower rough, and a T18037-XO jetted module trim. You can also plumb in a R11000 diverter rough and a diverter trim to match your tub/shower trim and add separate body sprays like the model 50102 to your set up.
Thanks,
Dave

Planning custom shower

I am planning 2 showers for my addition.
One with just a shower head, and one with a shower head and a handheld.
For the one with just the shower head, I am planning on using a R10000-UNBXHF with T14286-SHQ.
For the one with the shower head and handheld, I am planning on using R10000-UNBXHF and R11000 with T14286-SHQ, T11886 and 55424

Is this what I'll need, or are there other valves/parts that are needed?

Hi mkdwns, Thank you for your question. Your set up looks good, the only piece that I would recommend that you add is the 50570 wall elbow. The wall elbow is where the hand held shower hose will attach to the wall/ water supply.

What type of installation would require a R10000-HF?

I am interested in installing the Dryden T17251 w/out jets in my master shower. The trim package only calls for the R10000-UN rough-in kit, but did not know if I need the HF for this installation. Do I need the HF for this installation? What benefit and/or versatility would the HF give me?

Answers

Answer: 
Hi JG, Thank you for your question. The HF stands for High Flow. The R10000-UNBXHF is made for shower only applications and since there is no tub port manufactured in to the valve body the water flow rate out of the valve is higher than the R10000-UNBX. If you are installing the T17251 either valve will provide plenty of water for the showerhead. If you plan on adding other features such as a handheld showerhead or bodysprays the HF model would be the better choice.
Thanks,
Dave
