Once you have found and purchased the standalone shower of your choice, you may want to start installing it right away. Since most standalone shower kits come with instructions, you should easily be able to install your own shower, even if you have no prior home improvement experience. What could be better than having a new shower installed and saving money at the same time?
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.
Some shower faucets have the pressure/anti-scald valve built into the mixing valve and others have a separate valve completely (not built into the unit at all). Replacement unit must be exact, so take faucet manufacturer's name and unit model number or old valve.
Wall-mounted faucets can be used for vessel sinks, under mounted sinks, as well as bath tubs. They come in many different styles and sizes and are very practical for small spaces.
