Add Shower To Roman Tub


How might you add a shower to this jet tub, as a somewhat temporary measure? It's going to be curtained off all around, so shower water on the deck isn't the main issue. But they want shower capability until a future bath remodel is more feasible.

It's an outside wall, and there are lots of copper fittings in that tight space. Anybody know if there's a roman tub spout with a side diverter? If so, I'd replace it and add a handheld and a wall perch.

Yeah, might have to go that route.

But if I could replace the spout with a riser somehow, that would be great. It's just too tight and convoluted inside to mess with the supply.

If it's just temporary, pull the spout and get some hose to match OD and mount an arm to the wall?? Shower only.
