Using the 55799 hand held shower sprayer in the shower, a) do I need a diverter valve to shut off the shower while the hand held unit is in use? b)
b) what is the pipe size, thread and protrusion from finished wall to be able to attach the hose, also does Delta make a 90 degree adapter in polished nickel that transition from the copper pipe from the wall to the adapter and then to the hose for a more professional look?
Thank you for your question. To switch water between the shower head and hand shower you will need a 3-Setting Diverter. You have two options for a diverter.
One option is an in-wall diverter, which consists of the R11000 Rough-In Valve and a T118_ Diverter Trim Kit to match your shower valve trim. You will also need a supply elbow for the hand shower hose, such as the 50560, which connects to a1/2" threaded pipe.
The second option is to use a shower arm diverter, such as the U4923-PK or U4929-PK.
