Dura Faucet Single Lever Shower Fauct - Has anyone bought? Like?

Hello my fellow FRF Friends!



Today I wanted to check and see if any of you have installed this and if so can the faucet be rotated so the connector is at the bottom? I would think the hose hangs better that way?

Thoughts please!
Debbie

I don't see why you couldn't. You might want to switch sides on the hot and cold lines coming in to keep the hot/cold adjustment in the normal position.

If you read the reviews on Amazon someone describes how to do exactly what you are suggesting.

Keep us posted. Would definitely like to get rid of current faucet in favor of a single lever.

Yes single lever with output on the Bottom is the correct way to install,especially come "Winterize Time"! We also added a ball shutoff valve at the bottom outlet then attach the hose,that way you can reach down and turn off the Flow with one hand while holding the shower head! As said make sure the lines connect to the proper "H/C"! Youroo!!

I've had one installed for a couple years, way better than the stock one. Seems like I can adjust both temp and volume quicker. Just be aware of it's presence so you don't bump the handle when you shower and change the setting. I don't recall if I installed it with the vac break on top or bottom. I remember it was a tight fit on the supply lines

I installed one about 3 years ago, as shown in the picture, outlet to the top. Works great, no winter issues, gets cold here in northern Canada.

My current Montana came with the single lever. My previous 5er was a Cougar with the double knobs. I removed them and the box that stuck out few inches. I bought a piece of Starboard at my marina to cover the whole and installed a lever flush with the shower wall.

Okay - here is an update. I had e-mailed the mfg and this is there response. Have not gotten to talk with DH yet to see IF HE UNDERSTANDS all this?

"Dura Faucet would not recommend changing the direction of the faucet because with the water line pointing up helps prevent water back flow. Our diverters have an anti-siphoning valve in them, also our shower wands have a trickle switch (meaning in the off position a little amount of water will still trickle out), and there usually is a shower ring (DF-SA155) that should be used. Basically what “could” happen is if the sprayer is laying in the tub while in use with water in the tub there could be a siphon and “dirty” bath water could be siphoned into the clean water holding tank. If you have 1 of the 3 things above; anti-siphoning valve, water trickling out of the water, or shower ring creating a loop, water will not siphon into the clean water."




Thoughts?


4x4FF - thanks for the information - we will see if we can find what you found on Amazon - THANKS! We LOVE videos...
