            Each one is different in my experience. I always look at everything the customer wants in the shower. Then calculate the water volume, pressure, & hot water necessary for the whole house to keep them happy.

            And most forget the DWV must be properly sized to handle it all.

            The valve manufacturers have some recommendations in their literature. Sometimes.

              There are many configurations you can use. As plumbworker mentioned, if you use body srprays they must be piped in a circulting loop. I have installed Kohler and Grohe they have illustrations in the installation guide to help you get started. It also helps if you have a six inch wall to work with. A lot of too!

                Pressure Loop.

                Just don't want to confuse the toolaholic.

                      Tool, I honestly don't quite understand your question. I take the customers into the shower with the trim/valves and lay it out with them.

                      Sometimes your customer is 5' and sometimes they are 7'. And sometimes they are both! (Married couple)
