Chicago, Illinois (April 2008) -  Price Pfister®, a leading manufacturer of kitchen and bath fixtures /accessories, today débuted a line of Thermostatic Shower Systems, providing the industry’s latest technology for easy installation and the ultimate shower experience. These new products offer an optimum shower experience delivered through the combination of a raincan shower head and multiple body sprays, and can be powered by either the new half-inch thermostatic valve or the three-quarter-inch thermostatic valve. The 1/2” TX8 Thermostatic Shower System features the industry’s first diverter-less body spray for quick and easy installation at an exceptional value for new construction and remodeling projects. These stylish and functional new fixtures will be showcased at The Kitchen/Bath Industry Show & Conference (K/BIS) in Chicago’s McCormick Place, April 11-13, booth No. S5470.

First Ever Diverter-Less Body Spray Option

A leader in innovation, Price Pfister introduces the new 1/2” TX8 Thermostatic Shower System which provides the easiest solution for an upscale shower in today’s home. The ground-breaking architecture of the 1/2” TX8 System features the industry’s first body spray option with a diverter-less technology. This innovative advancement significantly improves installation time, delivers a 50 percent reduction in cost and labor, and reinforces an outstanding performance for the body sprays. 

The TX8 cartridge on this thermostatic shower provides a high flow rate of more than 7.0 gallons per minute (gpm) at 60 pounds per square inch (psi) to support the body sprays, and offers an invigorating raincan showerhead experience. Additionally, the thermostatic cartridge was designed to fit within the existing 0X8 casting, providing a seamless solution for simple upgrades, new construction or retrofitting. 

The body sprays on the 1/2” TX8 System can be adjusted to 21 degrees full rotation and have a matching six-inch raincan shower head with self-cleaning nozzles to offer a lavish water experience. Each body spray contains a quarter-inch turn ceramic valve, the most durable valve technology available on the market, which operates independently, eliminating the need for a diverter valve, saving both time and money. 

Completely Customized Shower Experience

Price Pfister’s high-powered 3/4" Thermostatic Shower System is the ultimate choice in luxury for the fully customized shower. Offering superior functionality with water pressure levels of 60 psi, the three-quarter-inch thermostatic valve delivers a flow rate of more than 12 gpm for a remarkable shower experience. This Thermostatic Shower System provides an entirely customizable shower, offering a completely coordinated display of universal body sprays, raincan shower head, hand shower packages, volume control valves, and a three-way diverter valve. Its versatile trim package features a style that seamlessly adapts to contemporary or traditional décor.
