I live in Southern California where we are experiencing a major drought. As a result, our water usage tier prices have increased dramatically. To save money, and to save water, we installed this cheap kill switch to shut off the water supply in the shower during the downtimes that we all have: shaving, lathering, whatever.

This kill switch is a much better alternative to turning off the shower. Simply flip the switch to the off position, do your thing, then flip it back on and your water temp is exactly where you left it (warning: there is a brief burst of slightly warmer water when you turn it back on). No needing to waste time and more water to find that exact perfect temp again. This is a tactic to save water that you will actually use.

This kill switch was simple to install and is simple to use. We've had it for a few weeks now and it's obvious that we are saving gallons of water with each shower.

It will absolutely restrict flow. Picture attached. I would guess the many reviewers said it doesn't restrict flow already have low flow heads that don't flow more than this valve so they don't see a decrease in pressure. If you have a head that flows quite a bit, you will notice a decrease in pressure even with this valve full open.

That said, I live in a brand new house where the builder graced me with a luxury head that flows waaaay too much water and a shower valve that is full on with no adjustability that only let's you adjust hot/cold. It is crazy wasteful. This valve did exactly what I wanted and let me cut my pressure back to reasonable levels for far less money than a new low flow shower head or the ridiculous task of replacing the main shower valve so that I could turn my water down. For a few dollars I got a luxury that was sorely lacking in my new home.

This valve would not fit one of my standard shower heads. It fit the pipe on the wall, but the head wouldn't screw onto this adapter. It DID fit my other, identical shower head. I replaced the head that it wouldn't fit, and it fit on the new one. So, it may not fit a few heads due to minute differences in the threads.

We have leaky valves that are impeded in a wall and don't want to rip out the bedroom wall to get at them and don't want to damage the tile. They are old and not easy to replace. So we've been using shut-off valves for several years. My old one finally gave out and the shower head was dripping every few seconds to later dozens of drips per second. I tried two that I found at the big box home improvement store and had to return them both as they only barely relieved the dripping. I saw a few very favorable reviews for this one and figured it had to be better. WOW, it was amazing. Absolutely NO dripping whatsoever. Let me state that we use this after the valves have been turned off to prevent the dripping and splashing and the onset of mold in the shower because it never dries out. We don't use it for turning the water off while taking a shower, but did try it to see if the claims held and they did. I only turned it off for a few minutes and again, there was no dripping. The valve is a lot easier to turn than the 90° turn valves and I did not notice any water pressure decrease (this is in an upstairs bathroom). I bought a second one to have on hand just in case it craps out and i can't find it again, but it's been a few months of using the shower about 3 times per day and I am more than happy.

I have a leaky shower faucet that my landlord has "fixed" several times but always ends up leaking again. The leak has something to do with the knobs, so I decided to give this a try instead, cutting the water source off behind the showerhead. BOOM. Works great, easy to use, saves water!

Effective valve. Completely shuts off the shower. Minimal restriction of flow when open.
This solved the problem I had with some water always coming out of a shower head in my shower/tub/diverter set-up when I want to fill just the tub. It meant I did not need to redo the plumbing with a dual ell.
The valve will completely shut-off the shower.
The heart of the valve is a plastic hour-glass shaped opening which has minimal restriction to the water flow.
No leak problems. I do use three wraps of teflon tape on the threads, which I think is standard.

Well made and does basically what it says. There are a couple things to know which are not in the description: 1) there is no way to face the switch where you may want it. It comes with a rubber washer inside the female end as it is NOT a tapered thread and should not be tightened like a tapered thread and 2) there is about a 65% flow restriction created by this device. If you already use a lo-flow shower head and have good pressure you won't notice it. But if you have low pressure or especially if you still have an unrestricted flow head you will notice the reduction in flow/pressure coming out of your head.

You need to know your plumbing threads. This is IPS (Iron pipe straight thread) and NOT NPT (national pipe tapered thread). If you try to install it on/like tapered thread pipe you likely have problems. If you tighten it like a tapered connection (very tight) you will just push the washer into the pipe and have a leak. You MUST just tighten it snugly to compress the rubber washer and not distort it or push it into the pipe. It will rotate easily on the pipe though. This is the reason for a number of reviews complaining of leaks at the threads. They didn't install it properly.

I found though that if you use about 5 turns of tape and leave out the washer on the female end you can tighten it enough to seal like an NPT but no guarantee. That is not how it is made.

The switch moves smoothly and easily so a child can work it and it shuts flow off and back on with about 1/4 turn, so easy to use.
