Try something like this Add-A-Shower Diverter .. page down a bit, there are
many varieties from complex to simple.
You should be able to unscrew the tub spout, and replace it with another
spout with a spray hook-up. Then buy a simple hand shower, and connect it
to the new tub spout. Total cost, $75.
I've just moved to a new rental property. There's a bath with separate
hot and cold taps, but no shower. Being a shower person myself, I
really need to get a shower installed, but can't afford to shell out a
lot of money (especially when I'm helping the landlord out by improving
*his8 house!) for a fancy shower. I was wondering if there is some way
to adapt the taps in the bath to run a shower from them without having
to replace them with mixer taps?
Another forseeable problem is that there may not be enough pressure to
run a shower from the taps. I don't know how any of it works, but I
read something online that said that the loft tank needs to be suitably
high up in order to get good pressure.
I guess my only other option would be to get an electric shower and
then take it out when I leave, don't particularly wanna have the
plumbing/electricial work done for that though, as again, I'm paying to
improve someone else's house, I'm too broke and too stingy to do that
unless I HAVE to :-P Also, when my Mum had an electric shower
installed, she also had to have a brand new fuse box as her present one
at the time didn't have enough space on to run anything else. The whole
electric shower process cost her the best part of £1,000 thanks to the
new fuse box!
Can anyone give me some helpful advice on any of this? Would really
Thanks in advance!
