Waterfall shower heads have a unique shape, the head is usually shaped like a cylinder or long rectangle. Some just screw onto the existing base. These have a T-like shape. Some are installed directly in the shower stall wall via a console like fixture, or are just simply cut out and lined with a plate fixture.
A diverter valve can channel water to the showerhead OR the handshower OR the body sprays'but not all at the same time. If a hot supply and a cold supply were plumbed into a diverter valve, the water would run constantly with no way to stop it. You've figured that you have a shower diverter valve problem. Tackling plumbing problems in the home can be quite daunting. Shower diverter valve replacement or replacing a diverter washer can be tricky if you're not familiar with the process.
Use Waterfall Shower Heads To Give Your Bathroom A Natural Theme: One trend that I've noticed in recent months is nature themed bathrooms. Homeowners are doing things such as installing wall panels and shower stalls that are made out of, or at least appearing to be made out of rocks. They're putting plants inside their bathrooms and adding skylight windows. And perhaps the hottest item for nature themed bathrooms is the waterfall faucet.
Steam Shower Frames: The supporting beams of a steam shower are typically made of aluminum. Aluminum is widely used because of it strength and light weight. The bathtub and shower trays that make up the bottom of many steam showers are typically constructed of a stainless steal frame. It is important that steam showers have both a sturdy base and strong supporting beams. This is a must when shopping for a steam shower. Beware of cheaper models that have plastic supports, these don't have nearly the strength of aluminum and the finish can be scratched off easily.
Another benefit of waterfall shower heads that you may enjoy is they are much easier to clean. This is due to the single large gaping hole that they have. It's simply easier to get in and out of with a cleaning utensil. Contrast this to the multiple tiny holes in a traditional shower head. These are simply not easy to get in and out of with a cleaning utensil and they are therefore susceptible to things such as the build up of lime, soap scum, and bacteria.
