My g.c's client bought this tub, it's an English manufacturer of high end freestanding and clawfoot tubs. Anyone ever install one of these? I've never installed one of these so it's going to be a challenge, the client also bought the Kohler 1610 tub/handheld shower faucet. The client also went to the MA. local inspector after he bought this tub/handheld shower faucet and asked him if this was acceptable. The inspector told him that the faucet needed a mixing valve or thermostatic control because he considers a handheld shower attachement a shower. I've looked in the Ma. code and I don't see anything in there that say a tub with handheld needs a thermostaic control. I also don't want to argue with the inspector over this , but there is no easy way out. The only free standing tub/shower faucets w/ thermostatic controls in brushed nickel start @ $1200.
