Hey guys great forum here. I am installing a 32x60 tiled shower and just bought a Delta shower valve set that came with a tub diverter. Lately i've been seeing more showers that have the diverter installed in a shower situation on various DIY shows on tv. Anyone have an opinion on this practice or pros and cons?

Second question is this: With the wet wall open right now I have an opportunity to install shutoffs on the hot and cold supplies which would be accessible on the other side of the wall inside a small access panel. Is this worth doing or is it overkill in the shower?

Thanks for a great forum, it's very interesting reading.
