Pressure Balance Valve
Posted by Richard Blackburn on May 11, 2002 at 23:33:27:
I'm remodeling my bathroom, and want to use one of those antique '2 handle' exposed shower fittings with the rose head.

My plumber is nervous, telling me that code requires a pressure balanced valve. My research has located an in-line pressure balance valve (called Tempera at Could I use this to provide the same function? Or would this still be in violation of code? I live in Southern California, if that matters.

Thanks in advance!
