  • aquabrass thermostatic valve

    I am installing an aquabrass 3/4'' thermostatic valve with a rainhead shower head, 4 body sprays and a shower arm. I don't have 3/4'' feeds coming up from the basment, they are now 1/2'' feeding the old shower body. Is this going to be an issue with pressure? Or do I need to run new 3/4'' feed lines direct from the water heater to insure correct pressure?

    Yes, it probably will be an issue.

        Going from 1/2" to 3/4" has more to do with volume than pressure.

            i have never installed shower jets like this before some i'm concerned about the pressure and the volume, i need the feeds to be 3/4''. should i just tap off the water heater and run new 3/4'' lines to the thermostatic valve?

                Either your house is "equalized" water distribution wise...or it's not.

                Now obviously none of us can answer that question for you, cause we can't see your water piping, unless you know for sure what each bathroom group is getting pipe size wise.

                If your rough-in valve is tapped 3/4", make sure it's supplied fully with 3/4" back to each source (hot & cold). There is a reason why the engineers designed this faucet this way, and it tells me that this shower system needs the "volume" to supply all of your shower heads/jets etc.
