Changing the Shower Trim Tub Handle to Control Volume and Temperature Separately

Changing the Shower Trim Tub Handle to Control Volume and Temperature Separately

We’ve been really happy with nearly everything about our new house. But I hated the shower control. You couldn’t control the temperature and the amount of water separately. When I am taking a hot bath, I want to be able to let just a little […]
