We have started a fantastic shower renovation here in Yaletwon, Vancouver. The shower will be trimmed out with some great lights and an amazing Dornbracht package.
We shut the water off to the condo yesterday and removed as much of the condo's old Poly B as we could and installed some new 3/4" supply lines for the shower - both hot and cold.
My client is concerned that the 3/4" pex pipe will not produce the same volume as say 3/4" copper. The condo has it's own isolation valves so switching at this point is not the end of the world but I have never seen a shower valve roughed in with 1" pex before - that said I have never installed so many German fixtures in one shower before.
Is there a huge difference in flow rate? I'm sure the valves on the Dornbracht fixtures can not handle this much water as not many homes have this same set up as a condo. I have email Dornbracht and look into this further before proceeding with any more work.
