Can I use a hand wand such as Model # 75529SN with Model 144766SP in place of the tub fill ? I am remodeling our master bath shower. If so what else would I need ?
Thank you for your question, EC. You may install this unit without the tub spout. However, the bottom port must be capped as connecting a hand shower to the bottom port would cause water to flow from the hand shower and shower head at the same time. Instead, you will need to use a 3-setting diverter. There are a couple options to divert the water between the shower head and hand shower.
The first is an in-wall diverter. For this, you will need the R11000 Rough-In Valve and a Diverter Trim Kit to match your shower valve trim, such as the T11852-SS. You will also need a supply elbow for the hand shower hose, such as the 50560-SS.
The second diverter option is to use a shower arm diverter, such as the U4923-SS-PK or U4929-SS-PK.
