  • two handle shower valves

    What are you required to install to bring a 2 handle shower faucet up to code in your area. On friday I was told by an inspector that you need to install a temp. balancing valve and mixing valve behind the wall. as the NSPC calls for both not just pressure balance valve and you can not use the heater thermostat as temp. control. So how have you been handling this issue.
