Great for showers that have no external shut-off at the shower head. While you lather up, you can turn off the water. When you want to rinse, turn the valve back on and the water comes back at the same temp while saving water that would otherwise be wasted.

Based on reviews read here and elsewhere, I purchased and installed this recently. Some say that it doesn't shut the water off completely. It does for me--or leaves the very slightest trickle/drop that's good for rinsing nothing, so for all intents and purposes, it's a complete shut off.

I wanted something to lessen the water waste when I shave in the shower (regularly). This isn't just an on/off valve; what's really nice is that you can dial it in by turning the knob more to go anywhere from a full spray to a drop of water coming out. I turn it most of the way off, but enough to allow me to rinse my razor between uses.

The product took a minute total to install (with 3 wraps of teflon tape) is secure, and is leak free so far. I installed my new Delta 75152 water-amplifying showerhead (bought through Amazon) on top of it, and I now have a stronger shower as well as a more efficient/conserving one, and can set the water to come through just enough to properly rinse my razor to save gallons of water each time I shave.

Five stars. Can't vouch for durability, as it's been in two weeks, but so far, it's perfect.

I have a Speakman showerhead and the flow is so strong that my drain can't keep up. I use this valve to dial back the water pressure a tiny bit so that my floor drain can keep up. It is great.

This is basically a ball valve. It comes with w rubber gasket that goes inside the female end. It screws in between the shower arm and the shower head.

Some had mentioned that it didn't completely stop the water flow. (A) Mine does; and (B) I don't that is the purpose of this product.

I use it to adjust the water pressure to my showerhead and it works great.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By DR on July 12, 2014
There is a fundamental fluid flow reason why the Danco shut off valve does not shut off 100%. I installed a full-ported brass ball valve on my shower head and got scalded for the first 10 seconds every time I re-opened the valve. Here’s what happens. Hot water, heated to 110 degrees F, above typical 55-degree F cold water, produces an added thermodynamic head pressure that will add to the existing house supply water pressure. When you mix hot and cold in the shower mixing valve, then fully-valve-off the resulting mixed flow, this added hot water thermodynamic head pressure will exceed the house supply water pressure and force (back flow) a portion of hot water back up into the cold water feed. When you release the flow (open the shower shut off valve), this back flow hot water within the cold water line + the hot water from the hot water side both flow out, and you will feel-the-heat (not in a good way)! Danco understood this and allowed the excess hot water thermodynamic head pressure to weep, preventing hot water back flow into the cold water line when valved off. Try a 100% shower shut off valve and scald yourself, if you doubt this.

This device is incorrectly named, because it doesn't shut off the water all the way. If it's to prevent cross-flow or to allow the hot water to flow slightly without wasting much water until it comes up to temp, then fine but the instructions don't imply either of this. Instead, the packaging clearly says it's a shut off valve. If water continues to trickle when the valve is in the off position, then you can't claim it to be a shut off valve. Just saying.

My 2.5gpm shower head doesn't appear to be designed to work well with this valve. I thought it would be an inexpensive way at reducing the water use further with my shower head. I probably should have just spent the $75 for a Bricor shower head instead.

Previously had a plastic shut-off valve that broke, so wanted to replace it with something more substantial. Main objective was to get something that didn't constrict the water flow. Passthrough hole in this is a bit smaller than I expected, but water flow is still strong, so I'm happy with it.
I think it is sort of funny that comments from some people are that it doesn't completely shut off the water flow, so it is 'bad'. I don't want to use this as THE shut off ... i want it to stop the water for a minute while I scrub so that I don't waste water. It does the job fine.

We bought two of these to conserve water by having "Navy" showers most of the time. The valve is sturdy. You can adjust it with a simple twist (much better than trying to twist the large dial on most water-saver shower heads with wet soapy hands). I like the fact that turning the valve allows for a total water shutoff (for when you're soaping up). But it also can be turned to create almost any water output, from a trickle to almost the full water flow. We previously used a less expensive "push button"-style shut-off valve, and it was so cheaply/poorly made that the spring mechanism of the button broke after only a week or two.

Name of product: DANCO Shower Head Shutt-Valve The only truth in the name is VALVE, there is no shut-off about this product!
I purched 3 and all 3 are leaking worse than the Titanic after hitting ice! Upon closer inspection, 2 of the 3 apeared to be repackaged, my guessn would be RETURNS! That is what I will do next.
