I need help with body jets. I purchased a rainfall/waterfall shower system with 6 jets, and my handyman is installing it now, but the water pressure is very poor when it comes out of the 6 jets at the same time. We had tested it with one jet, and got really excited about the pressure, but now are very disappointed. Is there a way to install the jets, a type of hose or a valve that would make the jets have a massage quality water pressure? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Help is needed: I have a 60 x 32 shower. Back wall 60, left and right walls 32. I'm going for Fleurco Kenetik sliding doors. And using the Kohler thermostatic spa system. Recessed rain head, 3 inset body spray and handheld. My shower door opening is on the left. Where and in what setting should I place the 3 jets?

John - I appreciate all the advice you've provided, especially your article about shower niches.

If you can't install the shower controls on the wall across from the door (which is the most visible wall of the shower in my design and I wouldn't want the controls to interrupt this wall), wouldn't a thermostatic valve solve many of these issues? At least you wouldn't have to try to set the temperature while water is raining down on your arm.

Alternatively, you could use a remote controlled system like Kohler DTV. In my experience, the water from the shower head is far enough from the wall that reaching in to turn it on can be done easily without getting wet. I'm putting my rain heads on an arm, for example, not on the ceiling to resolve this issue (I also don't like water raining down on my head, especially because I don't wash my hair every day).
