Add-A-Shower Kits and Diverter Tub Spouts

These add-a-shower kits and diverter tub spouts are an economical and versatile way to add a handshower to your bathtub, or to convert your tub to a bath/shower combination. Add a shower to your existing bathroom, a guest bathroom, or just make your existing shower more convenient with one of the helpful options available below.

Barclay Complete Add-A-Shower Kits for Clawfoot Tubs

These complete Add-A-Shower systems include a diverter faucet, riser, showerhead, and wall brace. A great solution for converting most shower-less clawfoot tubs, these pocketbook-friendly and easy-to-install kits feature a simple 3-3/8" centered wall mounted faucet. The riser is constructed of 3/8" tubing, which fits snugly into the compression outlet of the faucet. The included 6-inch wall mounted support brace and a plastic shower head helps keep your new shower exactly where you want it. Please note, many municipalities require tub spouts to be installed above the highest possible water line to be code compliant. For this reason, we offer two variations on the same basic design (and even offer the faucets separately here), so you can choose just what you need.

Please note: Due to low flow regulations, these add-a-shower kits are not available for shipping to California, Colorado, or New York.

These complete add-a-shower kits feature:
  • Great for adding a shower to a clawfoot style or built-in tub without tearing into the wall or having to rework your plumbing setup
  • Mounts directly against the wall of the tub for easy installation
  • Available in standard (non-code) or code style kit to comply with your local municipality requirements

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. "Do you sell an extension kit for the 3/8" chrome risers on the Add-A-Shower units?"
A. We sell 3/8" chrome nipples and chrome couplings. Purchase a coupling and a nipple the length that you wish to raise the shower head.

Q. "Some of the clawfoot tub faucet descriptions mention compression style. What does compression style mean?"
A. The compression style in this case is referring to the way the water is shut off when the valve is closed. The handle is attached to a stem with a rubber washer on the other end. As the handle is turned to close the valve (clockwise), the rubber washer is forced (compressed) against a brass or stainless steel "seat", which is the metal opening of the waterway, until the opening is closed and the waterflow is stopped.

Q. "If my washers fail, will the manufacturer replace them?"
A. No. The replacement of washers is considered to be normal wear and tear and must be done regularly to protect the seat. Washer deterioration is directly related to use, water quality and over tightening of the handles. The handles need only be tightened enough to stop the flow of water. If, after the leftover water in the spout and shower riser has drained, the faucet continues to drip, tighten slightly until the flow stops. This will increase the life of your washers dramatically. Replacement washers are something that will need to be purchased locally as the manufacturer will not ship them as replacements. When replacing washers, it is imperative that great care be taken when removing and replacing the bonnet nuts. A soft piece of cloth needs to be used to protect the finish of the nut, and the nut should never be over tightened. It will cause the nuts to eventually crack.

Q. "I have a diverter tub spout and whenever I fill my tub with water from the tub spout only, I also get some dripping out of my shower head. What can I do to stop that?"
A. There could be many reasons why this is happening. One possible solution is to install a twin ell which is designed to help prevent the showerhead from dripping while the tub spout (diverter style) is filling the tub.
