Sometimes figuring out what's wrong with your toilet, drain, or other plumbing-related area is half the battle. Uneven water flow, low pressure when the pressure at other faucets seems all right, or troublesome switching back and forth from spray head to sink spout can be caused by a malfunctioning diverter valve or by a restricted hose. Because diverter valves can only change the direction of water, and not turn water flow on or off, they are rarely used in custom shower systems. Custom showers are multiple-head showers. They consist of valves, water outlets, volume controls, shower heads, hand showers, or body sprays.
Three-hole faucets come in many different styles and need three separate holes: one of each handle, the hot and the cold, and one for the spout. The tree pieces are not connected and can be mounted as far as 16 inches apart. When purchasing a three-hole be sure to measure the spread requirement, i.e. the distance between the openings to make sure the faucet will fit.
The latest designs do this using a built in thermostat. These are known as thermostatic mixing valves, thermostat valves, or TMVs, and can be mechanical or electronic. Another type is an anti-scald valve, which is only to prevent the water from getting to hot, but not chilling.
Custom showers require plumbing changes and/or major considerations before installing. You cannot just simply add more shower heads or sprays to an existing shower stall or tub enclosure. Custom showers should be installed by a licensed plumbing contractor.
