Shower for Two

Michelle, when a valve is called "pressure balanced," it means that it will balance the pressure between hot and cold, so that if for instance your husband flushes the toilet while you are in the shower, the overall pressure will drop as needed to keep from scalding you, and maintain near the same temperature output.

To maintain good pressure running two individually valved showerheads simultaneously, you'll want to make sure the incoming water lines (hot & cold) are a minimum of 3/4", until they divide to feed each shower valve, then they can be 1/2" to the valves themselves.

If you have good incoming pressure, and at least a 3/4" main entering the home, this will cover what you need.
