Rite-Temp® 1/2 Inch Pressure-Balancing Valve with Screwdriver Stops

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.

  • Back-to-back installation is ideal for unique or high-volume jobs
  • Large internal ports allow quick bath filling

Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use Kohler for valves Our contractor was impressed with the build and ease of install and use with this valve. We used this valve to control our main shower head, along with a K-9530 to divert to our hand shower when we want to use that one. Only use one or the other with the set-up I used. Works great!
