We are remodeling our bathroom and have a 3/4" line for the shower and want equal pressure to both shower heads. We are wondering what the loop design mentioned in other threads looks like, is there a picture?

In most cases it does not make a bit of difference. It would depend on where the two heads are located.

Water go to lease resistance, after you tee off keep the pipe lenghts equal

Picture the mixing valve on your wall.

Draw a line up from there to a large square or rectangle. Even sides.

Draw in your two heads spaced evenly and you have a mock up.

The water in this loop can move from either side and feed both shower heads with the same force.

This set up is with one mixing valve and both heads always running. The plumbing gets more crazy once you add in separate controls but it can all be done.

Here is a good diagram of a balanced four body jet design
