Haven't, but I wonder if the offical parts to install one are that expensive. You could probably do it with store bought plumbing parts but you need a mixer vavle inthere somehwere and that is likely to cost as much as the Malibu part.

I have made several from scratch. You can use ball valves at the hot & cold sources to regulate temp. Meet the hot & cold at a T & run 1 line into the shower pump. Hot supply from the block drain, cold supply from the impeller pump outlet. I did one on a vdrive nautique . The vdrive cooler was on the pressure side of the raw water supply . I used the cooler drain location for the cold supply.

I stand corrected, apparently you can do this from Lowes and at not too much cost. Do you know what the parts would cost from the dealer?

I think the kit is around $300 online, but that includes a pump.

Pump from Grainger was the biggest expense. I think around $85. The rest is just brass, clamps & hoses. I don't remember total costs but I think 150 should cover it. Another plus is you dont have to carve up a spot for the panel & people can't mess with the settings. Never have to adjust mine.
