A different use for a shower control with built-in diverter lever
We would like to have a fixed showerhead and a handheld unit on a bar off to the side. I was wondering if buying the valve and trim like the one in the picture would work to switch between them. My thought is to hook up the shower as normal (out the top) but plumb the bottom (tub) outlet to a line that feeds the handheld instead. Seems like it should work, but maybe I'm not seeing something I should know!
When pricing this out, this set up would be cheaper than buying a seperate diverter trim and valve set.
