multi jet shower

We arein the midst of redoing the bathroom. my wife is interested in the showers that have multiple misting jets coming out of the walls. my question is can i splice off the existing hot and cold lines going to the shower or do i need to run new lines from the basement. Also does anyone know of a way to increase the water preasure in the house with out digging up the ground and replacing the 100 year old main coming in? Thanks

Those multi-head showers require special valves and assemblies. The last one I was involved in cost around $1300 for the kit and didn't include the plumber or the tileguy.

If you are on "city water" your pressure is first determined by your supplier, then the size of your water service, then the size of your piping, then the size of the appliance outlets. So NO.

If you have a lot of money you might be able to install a reservoir and a pump.

If you are on well water YES the pressure can be increased by making a few changes but it may require a new well pump.
