Something Like this:

I want to do something like this in my future home.... What do I need to know?

Issues:
Water pressure- is there a way to increase it?
Parts: Cheap links?
Part Recs?
Keeping it clean (does that shower auto spray work?)

Anything else I need to know? I think these things look fucking sexy and could add a lot to the resale (if i keep it clean, etc)

I suppose for the pressure issue I could get some sort of mini pressure tank in between the main supply and the valve. That might be a lot of work and not the best idea, hopefully something somebody with more plumbing experience could comment on. I have no idea what kind of parts that would require...

From what I understand two things are necessary for proper function: ability to deliver the needed GPM or gallons per minute of such a setup, at the design pressure. The manufacturer can deliver both specs to me, perhaps online.

I want that too. How much would it cost? That would be a lot of work to tear everything out and replace it.

Depending on your existing plumbing you might need to put a pump to handle the extra pressure needed similar to one for spa jets.

First determine your current water pressure, and the rate of flow on your taps.

Also you might want to increase the temperature on your hot water cylinder, the reason for this is that it takes time to heat water, and the hotter the water the less flow you require from your hot water line.

A few years back I was at a camp site with 8 individual showers supplied by water heated by a gas heater, The problem was not enough water hot and cold was supplied by the mains, so they commissioned an insulated tank that is fitted with a pressure pump, as water does not compress, an air pocket was left at the top of the tank, and the pump maintained a preset pressure via a pressure switch.Be careful with this as what often happens if you were first to hit the shower was that one shower does not drop the pressure enough to activate the pump, and when someone else opens a shower it kicks in a blasts you with scalding hot water.

You might want to consider just using a inline booster pump the maintains the pressure coming from your mains by feeding into a surge tank via a one way valve., thereby pressurizing your whole water system.

On a final note you only require a single high flow mixer (assuming all the heads operate at the same water temperature) and this allows single pipes to each body jet array,(consider spa bath jets low flow-high pressure) and shower head, some jets can be shut off by twisting the body.

Hope this helps.

hokai, so here's what you do.. call up that ever so faithless dick-hole of a contractor listed in the phone buk.. ask him for a plumber.. then take a third of the price the plumber quotes you then call up Jose Juan-hulio Juarez Marquis Houston Continuieti and ask him for his third uncles' wives' ex-husband and when you get a hold of this guy (note: you may need to brush up on some Spanish lessons or call someone that can speak it..) tell him you want him to do a little bit of plumbing and construction..
