Re: how do you install body jets for a shower
I'm Harvey the Master Plumber
Your question is how to tighten up in the wall without putting a stud wall in for kyra body jets.
Kyra sells about fifteen models and they are all designed to be installed in a wall of some type.
The wall lends some very nessessary support to the valve body so that the whole thing dosen't move when the handle is adjusted. Wood stud, metal stud and concrete are typical structures. If you are trying to install on a free standing shower I recomend at least some kind of creative frame to support the valve.
Feel free to contact me again.

Chances are, the rubber seal is worn on the control knob. Make sure both hot and cold knobs are turned off. Take the handle off the shower control. Take off the chrome ring. You will see a nut around the shaft. You will need a special socket to take loosen the nut. If the hole is large enough you might get a pair of plyers on the nut. This will let you pull the control shaft out and replace the washer. Make sure you use a flashlight and see if the seat is damaged before replacing. Make sure you tighten the rubber very tight, as it will tend to loosen.
Tr019 is a type of control panel that operates the electrical features in a steam shower cabin, usually found in Chinese products.
The issue you have is with the valve, in particular the on/off valve. These can be replaced individually or as a complete new valve . This company in uk sell them http:// www.steamshowerparts.co.uk
If you have good water pressure in your home and a tank water heater and not a tank-less, as long as all jets are space equally apart you should not have pressure issues. but running straight to a jet and splitting off from that point will cause a rapid loss in pressure to the other jets because the lack of resistance. Fluid pressure is created by resistance to flow, not gpm (gallons per minute).If you flush a toilet and a faucet in another part of your home is reduced greatly you have a volume problem were the city water or well water is not supplying enough volume to your home and the multiple jets will not function correctly. Tank-less water heaters have difficult times keeping up with the demand multiple faucets create. Both problems have work arounds and fixes but it is best to get a certified plumper to install the components you would need
#1 THE FAT PART OF YOUR SPRING GOES INSIDE THE FAUCET ,AND SIT ON THE VALVE BODY(SEAT)
#2 THE LITTLE BLACK WASHER SIT ON TOP OF YOUR SPRING #3 PUSH THE STEMS IN THE CORRECT SIDES HOT ON LEFT.CAUTION THERE IS USUALLY NOTCHES ON THE SIDES OF THE STEMS TO HELP YOU ALIGN THEM IN THE VALVE BODY, 4 PUT THE NUT BACK ON ,TIGHEN SLIGHTLY,TURN ON THE WATER TO CHECK ,IF OK RE INSTALL YOUE HANDLES
try taking the shower head off and see if there is something stuck in it. sometimes things will come through the water lines and lodge themselves in the valves as well. if the shower head isn't clogged try dismantling the valve that turns the shower head on and then turn the water on when its out and flush the port out.
