How does flow get diverted between the hand held and the fill spout?
Thank you for your inquiry, Bob B! The diverter assembly in the spout part, of the Roman Tub Rough-In Valve R4707-PX connects to the lift rod on the top of the spout assembly. When the lift rod is pulled up, it diverts the water to the spout.

What is the flow rate for this? I thought I saw where is was 18 GPM. Can the input for this - 1/2 pex - even provide 18 GPM?
Thank you for your question. This valve does not have a designated flow rate as it will be determined by the pressure in the home. There is no flow restrictor device in our Roman Tub valves or spout assemblies. However, 15+ gallons per minute is common with 40-60 PSI.

Do you have a rough-in kit with treaded connectors at the end of the copper tubing?
Do you have a rough-in kit with threaded connectors at the end of the copper tubing? Usually 3/8 in O.D. Original builder drilled holes in the bathtub in wrong places and off center. I want to assemble the kit using flexible water supply hoses out of the hardware store like Home Depot or Lowe’s. Soldering is very difficult because there is not enough space for bending radius.
Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, we do not make a rough-in valve with threaded supply connections. With the R4707 (no suffix) you may be able to solder the spout Tee and solder threaded fittings onto the supplies prior to installation.
