    Default 3 way diverter

    A valve I bought will do 3 seperate items but not 2 together.
    I want to run one or a second or both.
    Can I use a w with 2 check valves to solve this? Can I bury the check valves in a Canadian wall? Is there a type/brand of check valve I should use?

    It would be easier I think to replace the shower fixture or to decide what two fixtures you would want to use at the same time. Then purchase a flow valve for that one dedicated fixture so you can run it by it's self....

    Having a rain head and hand held at the same time is perfect for showering couples!!!

    I only have 2.
    Rain and hand held.

    Position 1 would be 1 head
    Position 2 would be the hand held
    Position 3 would be both.

    I considered jets but the few timed I have used I was not overly impressed. And, i fear, the water usage would be more that I can take; its for my 3 daughters bathroom.

    The other thing is the valve I bought is thermostatic with diverter all in one.

    So. Check valves, trust em enough to tile over?

    I have never done so.

    I think you need to switch out the fixture. Sounds like forcing the design....

    For what you want, a six way diverter. Not a three.
