Theoretically this can be done. However, the manufacturer would frown upon it and it creates a safety issue.
We do not offer such valve but a plumber could supply it during install.
Couple concerns that come to mind....
What if someone forgets to use the bypass valve and then you have steam going into the room you are not using at that moment and the door was left upon so now the bathroom is full of steam.
Then the pipes are now hot and there is a potential to burn yourself when switching the bypass valve.
What if the valve is positioned such that steam ends up going into both showers at once.
Will both showers be exactly the same so that the Kilowatts will be appropriately sized for the environments?
In the future, when you sell the home, will the knew homeowners be trained on this and not get hurt. Possible lawsuit???
