Types of Shower Valve

There are four most normal blends of controls and outlets on shower valves and you have to pick the correct one for the mix of shower highlights you are having in your shower. Here are the four most basic sorts of valves and how you would utilize them:

1. Two Controls and One Outlet: One control is fortemperature, the other for rate of stream it supplies one shower head as it were. In any case, particularly on customary style uncovered showers you frequently discover a diverter on the inflexible riser part of the shower so one of these valves can be utilized with two shower sets out toward case an overhead shower and a hand-held shower valve on a slide rail.

2. Two Controls and Two Outlets: One control is for temperature, the other is a diverter which switches between the two diverse shower outlets. However the diverter does not give you as fine control of the rate of stream as a stream control. You would utilize this for two shower outlets for instance an overhead and slider rail. Yet, you may want to utilize the following alternatives.

3. Three Controls and Two Outlets : One control is for temperature, the other two are both stream controls autonomously controlling the rate of stream to the two diverse shower outlets. You would utilize this for two shower outlets for instance an overhead and slider rail. It gives you better control of the rate of stream than the 2-control valve with the diverter and you can have the two showers on in the meantime which you can't with the diverter variant since that one switches between them.

4. Three Controls and Three Outlets :One control is for temperature, one is a rate of stream control and one is a diverter. Regularly you may utilize this for a set up where you have an overhead shower with another hand-held shower that goes on a slider rail and various body planes (body planes are generally all provided by a solitary outlet from the valve). 

You may then have the stream control encouraging the overhead shower and the diverter exchanging between the body planes and the hand-held. That implies you could have each of them on independently or you could have the overhead shower on with hand-held shower or the overhead shower on with the body flies yet not the body streams on with the hand-held. However, how you have this plumbed-in is your decision, you simply need to influence it to clear to your handyman.

There are different mixes too including consecutive valves and valves with incorporated outlets, for example, those which incorporate a shower gush or a hand-held shower and hose. In the event that you need anything irregular its constantly best to watch that the parts you get are the correct mix to accomplish what you need and for this you require somebody who has an opportunity to converse with you and who knows the branch of knowledge.
