Thermostatic Shower SystemCalifornia Faucets’ StyleTherm thermostatic shower system delivers high flow rate, independent volume control and ultimate safety. Besides the ability to dial in exact temperatures, StyleTherm requires no diverter valve to toggle between shower applications, such as showerhead to hand-held shower. The system includes anti-scald temperature protection with a safety temperature override button - a feature especially comforting to parents of young children and the elderly. A higher water flow rate satisfies even the most challenging design requirements.
