Shower System Considerations
Before installing a shower system, it’s important that you consider the essential components of your existing plumbing system and make any necessary upgrades to make your shower system perform at its best. You will need to install enough shower outlets to fully accommodate the number of outlets you haveA installed – shower heads, body sprays and hand showers, so as not to exceed the minimum flow of any one valve, which will degrade the performance of your shower system.
Another issue is that for shower systems with three or more outlets, your recommended pressure is at least 50psi. Lastly, you should also have a dedicated 100-gallon water heater to make sure your shower has enough hot water (though a 50-gallon water heater is enough for a shower of 8 minutes or less).
If your plumbing is connected to a water softener, this can limit the flow of hot water needed for the shower system combo to function properly—many homeowners simply install a water softener designed for such high flows.The drain in the shower should also be large enough to eliminate the amount of water that the shower system can drain. Ideally, your shower system should have one 3″ drain and two 2″ drains.
