Product Features:

This Rite-Temp pressure-balancing valve works behind the scenes to prevent scalding and freezing for a safe, comfortable water supply. The valve features a high-temperature limit stop and an optimal comfort zone, so you can set a maximum high and then find and maintain your desired water temperature. Additionally, the unit has a diaphragm design that virtually eliminates freeze-ups from contamination and water debris. Universal NPT and direct sweat connections need no additional parts for installation, and screwdriver stops allow you to turn off the water supply at the valve.

Product Features:

  • Back-to-back installation is ideal for unique or high-volume jobs
  • Large internal ports allow quick bath filling
  • Flow Rate 5 GPM at 45 PSI
  • High-temperature safety stops ensures water temperature stays below 120 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Rite-Temp® pressure-balancing technology maintains water temperature within +/- 3 degrees Fahrenheit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD Our plumber said he had no problems installing it. Though the valve was on the on postion when sent out of the factory. That was a wet surprize! So beware!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rite-Temp 1/2 Inch Pressure-Balancing Valve The product was as advertised, very substantial and heavy, but in the end we removed it because it seemed unnecessary for our purposes. Nor a good value in our situation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do you need this? I discovered that when replacing an old Kohler fixture with a new one, that I didn't need this valve, I needed an adapter. Might save you the $15 it cost me to return this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sturdy & safe product This Kohler valve is very sturdy/well-made and is designed to protect the users from themselves. You can set how much hot water comes out the shower to prevent users, especially the very young & very old, from scalding themselves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bathroom Redo We ordered faucets, sinks and bathtub, and shower set-up. My husband placed the order after talking with two very helpful employees. We had a follow-up e-mail from Tavis. They informed my husband about the valves and parts we would need for installation. After the order was placed, we received the tracking number so the installation time could be coordinated with the arrival of order. Everything was sent and arrived promptly so we would recommend Faucets Direct for product selection, ease of ordering and overall satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! I purchased ahead for the plumber to install for me. He had an easy time taking the old valve out (which was a valve and diverter together) and install the new valve without much pipe moving and adjusting. Plus, I am not a plumber and I LOVED how when I selected my fixtures this website recommended the valve I needed for this fixture, options also not to get it in case I didn't need it. THANKS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from extremely sturdy I was really impressed with the quality of the valve. It weighed three times more and was so much sturdier than any we looked at at Lowe's. Highly recommend this company!
