Chicago Faucets' New Pressure Balancing Shower Valve Provides Enhanced Shower Performance
Des Plaines, IL: Chicago Faucets expands the selection of pressure-balancing tub and shower fittings with a new valve that incorporates several significant updates to match unique needs, design and budget for every application. The new tub and shower fittings are ideal for education, healthcare, hospitality, multi-family and fitness applications.
With its finely tuned ceramic operating cartridge, the new Chicago Faucets pressure-balancing shower valve offers improved flow management, precise hot- and cold-water mixing, simplified hot water volume adjustment, and a reduced flow rate (GPM) for both tub and shower service. Hot and cold supply inlet check stops are built into every valve. The complete fittings feature modern wall trim styling, with a polished chrome wall plate that's dual-indexed: embossed "H" and "C" and color-coded temperature graduation allow the user to adjust temperature quickly and easily.
The new Chicago Faucets shower valve is available as part of a complete system that includes a choice of shower head, a diverter tub spout and all finishing trim. The valve may also be purchased separately. Installation is easy: valve inlets and outlets with both 1/2" NPT and copper sweat connections are built in. All Chicago Faucets tub and shower fittings are fully compliant with relevant plumbing codes and standards.
