Either put the drop ell on one side of the valve and the slidebar on the other side so the hose goes down under the valve and loops back up to the sprayer or put the drop ell a little to the side of the valve and further over the slidebar so the drop ell is between the valve and slidebar. Or valve-bar-ell

These pictures of a shower I did for my mother in law would be my recommendation on layout.

There is a whole book of ADA specs and I am sure in these modern times it comes with a usb stick of pdf files.




Get a hold of whatever federal agency is in charge of the cripples, they will be more than happy to show you where to get that book and will probably offer to sell you one cheap.



Where I work we have like 3 copies and they are like 20+ years old, the specs haven't really changed. He probably just googled it, very easy to find if you use the right words.

Looks like it's under the department of justice.


I googled "ada plumbing spec book" andthe first one was all the requirements. That pdf spec book had there hotline number on the second page. Call them, I am sure they can tell you where to get the book of sample layouts.

I love how most of the time when people come here for answers it's just because they're too lazy to spend 30 minutes using google.

"sample ada shower valve layouts"


I am okay with ignorance, not everyone knows everything. But choosing to remain ignorant, that is just stupidity, I can not forgive stupidity. Making me work because you're lazy takes second place.

I just looked at my ada book file on my phone and I do think my setup in my picture would work good if it was rearranged a little bit. Same setup as in my picture but closest to backwall would be the drop ell and then centered with the shower head and drain would be the slidebar and then the valve would be closest to the front so its easier to reach from a wheelchair. At least that is how it looks to me in the ada code if it is to be ada aproved.

I may see if I can put the slide bar drop eared ell a little higher than the diverter on the other side of the fixed head centerline, slide bar on the other side of the fixed head centerline. So long as the hose does not touch on the floor. That would allow no intrusion into the valve or diverter and full range of the slide bar. Or drop eared ell at centerline of fixed head.
