We just had our shower/tub replumbed. Instead of running the hot and cold feed from the bottom UP into the shower valve, the plumber ran the feeds above the valve, put in 2 90 degree angles on each feed and then ran the feed down into the valve. He claimed he had no choice given the design of the valve and the carpentry situation (whcih strikes me as just incorrect).
My question: will these two extra 90 degree bends reduce our water pressure?
And is there a problem with having a bend so close (about 12 inches) to the valve?
Shoudl we have this replumbed?
Thank you for your help/ it's much appreciated.
