10 Questions from the Community

  • I am confused as to why you are showing that one needs to purchase item 47439 with this item 34182 as I believe the paraffin cartridge comes with the assembly. Please clarify.

    A. You are completely correct on this. We have moved the cartridge from a recommended item to an accessory item. The Grohe 34 182 comes equipped with cartridge assembly.

  • Does this valve require any other parts aside from the hot cold supply? Also is there a similar product which uses less water per minute?

    A. The Grohe 34 182 does not require any other parts. The product that will give you less water per minute is going to be the accessory that you use with it like the hand shower.

  • Does this product require any other parts or just this valve? And is there another version which uses less water or is this handled by the handheld shower attachment? Thanks

    A. The Grohe 34 182 does not require any other parts. The hand shower is the item that allows for a reduced water flow.

  • Grohe recommends this for their Freehander. But I read here this is for hand shower. Will this work for Freehander and what do I need to rough in?

    A. The Grohe 34 182 would not work with the Freehander. There are not additional parts needed to complete installation. This unit acts as a mixing valve.

    67% of 3 people found this useful. Was this useful? yes (2) | no (1)
  • How fast will the temperature control compensate for flow changes in the hot or cold water supply lines?

    A. The Grohe 34 182 and all mixing valves do not adjust for flow changes, unless they are severe, this compensation is called "Scald Guard". When you adjust a mixing valve you are adjusting the mixture of the water based on the current pressure, if that changes your temperature will change. If pressure drops suddenly and severely in one line, you will notice a significant drop in pressure as an internal piston chokes the flow of water on the other line, in order to prevent you from being burnt (or severely chilled).
