The long and short of it: This Thermostatic 17T Series TempAssure Precise Dual Temperature and Pressure Shower Control Fixture is basically a fully functioning Shower Faucet without the showerhead. It features dual control handles. The larger handle is used to turn the shower on and off and set the output volume of water. The smaller handle used to set the temperature. You can set the temperature however you prefer and then just leave that smaller handle in place. You can set the temperature however you prefer and then just leave the smaller handle in place. Every time you take a shower you will simply turn it on using the large volume control handle and the water will come out at exactly the same level of warmth! This fixture also includes the required Rough-in Valve which installs in the wall. The valve mixes the water from your hot and cold water lines in the wall and sends out a stream of warm water to whatever shower spray you choose. This item can work with just about any showerhead or even a handheld shower when plumbed correctly in the wall. It can also work as the control for a tub and shower combination, provided you have a tub spout with diverter.
PLEASE NOTE: You must install the included rough-in valve to use this fixture. This item is intended for use in new construction and full bathroom renovations where you plan to change the valve in the wall. It WILL NOT be suitable for most retrofit projects!
