Forum Title: Not enough pressure to my 6 body sprays. Bay shower valve?
Hey guys, This is my first plumbing project ever so I am sure I have made many mistakes. I tried to buy a very cheap shower kit off ebay. I've spent a good deal amount of time trying to get this to work, but now that I have it all setup, it seems the body shower is very weak, only the lower 2 have a decent amount of pressure. I made a quick video explaining the situation, in order to get some help with this or to help others thinking of buying the same unit. YouTube Any feedback is appreciated!

Not so much pressure issue....but water volume. Your 1/2 copper loops serving the body sprays should be 3/4 copper. Ahh phish beat me to it

Too many body sprays on a 1/2 line. I will put 4 on a 3/4 line, but you have 6 on a 1/2. The pressure balancing loop is wrong, it needs to make the circuit of all the body sprays,. No offense intended, but a big shower with multiple outlets is not the place to learn plumbing.

Thanks for the reply. I would like to fix it but im not sure what it needs to make the circuit of all the body sprays means. Could you please provide more detail? Also if the diverter in the shower valve has 1/4 inch connections/holes, will switching my loop to 3/4 make a difference? Thanks!
