Some of the most overlooked, but critical, elements in buying shower components are the valves. The valves are part of the plumbing inside the walls, and many of the items below require them. While sometimes they are included, often they are not, you'll save yourself time and headaches by double-checking. If it's a remodel, are you opening the walls and changing the plumbing? Or only updating existing fixtures? If you're updating existing fixtures and want to use the existing valves in the plumbing, you'll need to choose trim that is the same brand, since valves differ by brand. If you're redoing the plumbing or installing new construction, choose any brand and fixtures you wish knowing in the future you'll have to stick with that brand for any updates.

A diverter valve is used to change, or divert, the water flow to various outlets. They are used in showers, tub & shower combinations, bidets, roman tub fillers and kitchen faucet sprayers. For example, from the tub faucet to the showerhead, or the fixed showerhead to a handheld showerhead. Choose from several styles of diverter trim; a handle, a pull-lever on a spout, or a button, available in various finishes. Important to note: diverters require both the diverter valve, that goes into the wall, and the trim, or the handle and the escutcheon. In some cases they are sold together, but often times you'll need to buy them separately. If you know the shower setup you're planning but not sure on the style/finish, you can buy the valves ahead to keep the plumber going and choose the trim later in the preferred style and finish.
