Rain shower ? Want to decide if I should install one
OK, Master BR is gutted, DH wants the shower faucets in his hands, actually the thermostatic valve really, so he can determine where to position studs to accommodate niches.
I had thought I wanted a rain shower head and a handheld. Of course, I have only experienced one rain head (at a B & B), and it was less than impressive. Before I hit send to order an expensive shower system I have:
2 major questions--
1) Will I be happy with choosing a rain head over a 'normal' shower head?
2) If I go for the 12" round one I'm contemplating, how long does the wall arm have to be, and will it actually hold up to supporting the rain head, and not bend/break eventually? (Dh doesn't want to put piping in ceiling, so has to be wall-mount)
Info about me that might be useful to know. I am a swimmer, a swim coach, and I LOVE the water! We have a hot tub outside, and will be installing a Bain Ultra air jet tub in the next bath reno. This shower will primarily be for me, (DH uses the basement one which we renoed 4 years ago). I have long hair, and know the hand held is a necessity for shampooing/rinsing, etc.
