New shower, confused about valves....
I am redoing my bath and want to put in a new bath/ shower combo. What I want is a bath filler faucet, Rainshower head, handheld showerhead on a bar so it can be used as a regular shower head and 2 bodysprays. I want a thermostatic valve that has 2 knobs one for temp and one for volume, I figure I need a diverter? What else do I need. - I am not installing a plumber is but I need to make all the decisions.
One more question the plumber said there is nothing that can be done but I am hoping he is wrong. The bathroom is a distance from the hot water heater so it takes a min or two for the hot water to reach the tub - is there anything I can do to speed it up? what is a recirculating loop?
Thanks for any help you can give me. I have been searching i nthe bathroom section here and found lots of information - so I have bits and pieces but still can't get the whole puzzle put together
