What is a rough in kit for shower?
Herein, what plumbing is needed for a shower?
Shower Water Supply The water supply for a shower arrives via two pipes: hot and cold. In construction that is less than 30 years old, these pipes are usually copper. The pipes connect to a shower valve that controls the temperature and flow of water to the shower head.
One may also ask, can a toilet and shower share the same drain? Your shower drain can connect to the toilet drain, but it cannot connect to the toilet trap arm. So if your "main drain connection" is also the vent for the toilet, the line from the closet flange to the main drain connection is trap arm and the answer is no, the shower cannot tie in here.
Also, are shower valves universal?
They are all universal and all Delta Shower Trim Kits will fit every single one of these valves.
Does a shower need a 2 inch drain?
Keep in mind that shower drains are made to fit a 2-inch drainpipe. A 2-inch pipe is the recommended pipe size because showers have a low threshold for flooding, and a 2-inch pipe helps the water drain faster than does a 1 1/2-inch pipe.
