    Pressure balancing loop for Moen vertical spa

    Hello, this is my first post, I just stumbled on this site and read some really informative posts and I'd like an opinion on something. I'm putting in a Moen Vertical spa system with 1 shower head and 4 body sprays in a new house. The plumber just put together a pressure balancing loop and I'd like some opinions. There is a manual here on the Moen website.

    On page 18 is the picture of the pressure balancing loop but my plumber did something slightly different. My understanding from what I've read is that there needs to be some kind of path for the water to flow past the body spray. Although I have a loop, the body sprays are located off to the side of the loop and not actually in the loop itself. I attached a picture of my look and Moen's diagram what do ya'll think?

    Stop worrying. Either will work, and NEITHER one is necessary.
