The Danco Shower Head Shut-Off Valve is of all metal construction, with a quarter turn shut-off valve on the side. It is 1/2" I.P.S. as advertised, but what is not mentioned in the product description is that it incorporates a water restrcting reduced internal diameter, presumably for the purpose of saving water. For this reason, we approached the installation with some trepidation, fearing reduced water volume through the spray head. Not to fear, our shower continued to perform just as well as before.
One oddity with the installation is that a rubber gasket was enclosed in the package, but was not mentioned in the instructions. It seemed to fit well in the female upstream end of the valve, so we installed it there- but we're not certain that its use is required. One concern is that installation of this gasket as noted may block the small water bypass orfice used to maintain water temperature when the valve is shut off. We have, however, noted no difficulties with the operation of the unit.
Overall, a fine unit and highly recommended.
In response to other comments:
Lack of complete shut-off = Yes, it is true. This valve still allows a very small trickle of water to flow through when the valve is shut. I don't think this valve was intended to shut off the water 100 percent. This valve is great to conserve water while you are in the shower. It probably would be a building code violation to use a valve like this as the primary means of shutting off the shower when it is not in use.
Bypass port = The valve that I purchased has an opening that is visible next to the valve opening. However, there is a small screw in this opening. Being curious, I decided to remove this screw and found that its purpose is to keep the valve handle from popping out when water pressure is applied. The rubber washer that is supplied creates a seal between the shower pipe and the valve. In my case, I didn't even need to use teflon tape to get a good seal!
Compatibility with specific shower heads = I have to agree that if you have a conventional 2.2 gallon per minute (or more) shower head, you may not like this valve.Read more ›
I went to my local HD and found a shut-off valve made by the same manufacturer but this one had a push button, instead of a turn knob. You can still adjust water pressure by varying how much you push the button in. It drips very little and is only $5.50. Made of full metal, no plastic. Found it by the showerhead aisle.
I figure I use half the water I used to use and you save on hot water usage too.
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.
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.
