I don't know anything about plumbing -- or maybe I should say that I didn't know anything before, now that I've started lurking these helpful forums ;) --, but I got to learn, because I want to make the right choices and I assume that the plumber who'll install my new shower set won't research these things. So, I've been looking at American Standard thermostatic valves and I had some questions about them.
1. Is it possible to use both port (shower and tub) on a valve like the R520 if I use a stop valve/volume control on that second line?
I've searched the forum a bit and I found this answer:
2. American Standard thermostatic valves are limited at 112° F at the factory, which seems crazy to me. :/ Reading the product description, I thought that my plumber could circumvent that by adjusting the 100° F "baseline" to, let's say, 106° F, giving me a new 118° F maximum.
Am I right? Could this cause a problem?
3. I've been reading a lot of comments stating that you could/should install a thermostatic valve using the tub port regardless of the application.
OK, enough questions! :P Let me thank you for reading my ramblings, and maybe commenting on them. :D
