Installing multiple fixtures in loop

Rate this Entry
TERRY, THIS IS MY FIRST POST ON THIS SITE.
I AM NOT A PLUMBER/ELECTRICIAN. I AM A TOOLMAKER AND HAVE USED BOTH FOR MOLDMAKING PURPOSES.
I AM TRYING TO BUILD A SHOWER WITH 3 SPRAY JETS, 1 RAINSHOWER AND 1 HANDHELD. ALL ATTACHED TO A 3/4 IN KOHLER THERMOSTATIC VALVE.
THE MANIFOLD KOHLER MAKES IS GREAT, BUT EXPENSIVE.
INSTEAD, I WANT TO CREATE A LOOP FOR THESE 5 VALVES.
NEVER WILL I HAVE ALL THESE ON AT ONCE. I FIGURE I WILL MAX OUT HOT WATER AT 5.7GAL/MIN WITH MY ETERNAL GS-150 TANKLESS.
MY WATER PRESSURE WILL HANDLE AT LEAST THIS 5.7GAL/MIN MAX CAPACITY.
I WISH TO CONTROL MY OWN VALVES AND HAVE 5 CONTROL VALVES ONE FOR EACH FIXTURE.

MY CONCERN IS BEING ABLE TO SECURE THE VALVES AND CREATION OF A LOOP THAT WILL ALLOW FAIRLY GOOD BALANCE WITHOUT A MANIFOLD. ALL THE FIXTURES WILL GO ON ONE WALL.
MY FIRST THOUGHT IS TO CREATE A METAL PLATE, DRILL HOLES AND FASTEN THE VALVES AND SPRAY JETS TO IT.
I HAVE ACCESS TO A LASER CUTTER.
I MAY NEED TO BUILD A FRAME AROUND THE METAL PANEL AND ATTACH IT TO THE STUDS.
SINCE I AM NOT EXPERIENCED AT DOING THIS TYPE OF WORK I NEED A PROFESSIONAL OPINION OR SUGGESTIONS.
IF YOU CAN GIVE ME THAT I WOULD APPRECIATE IT.
THANKS,
MARK
