I noticed there are currently a couple other poor reviews for this valve. I just wanted to mention that I installed one of these about 2 years ago and we have had no problems at all with it. Installation is no different than any other standard thermostatic valve and the plumber had no problems installing it. We've had no issue with it not keeping perfectly constant water temperature, it's always perfectly contant. But your experience with it may vary if you have extreme issues with undersized pipes.

This valve works great at holding the water temperature once it's installed.

But beware of the installation. The instructions are horrible and baffling. And most plumbers won't even bother to read the instructions, which means that you'll get something that's miscalibrated and whose temperature range will be limited.

It took my plumber 2 tries, each lasting a couple hours, with a 3 hour call to Kohler in between.

If you're going to use this, buy it from a Kohler store and get them to recommend a plumber that they know for certain has installed it before.

This thermostatic valve is a terrific idea. Too bad it doesn't work. Completely re-plumbed my home and had these valves installed in three showers. They work no better than a standard valve at keeping the water temperature constant . . . flush the toilet, the water gets hot and when the toilet finishes flushing, the shower gets cold. Too much money to spend for a valve that does not do what's advertised. Would tear them out and send them back to Kohler if I didn't have to tear up the walls.

This is a great valve. I like the ability to just turn on the shower and the temperature is set the same as where I last left it. No standing in the cold with your hand in the stream, fiddling with the valve to get the temperature right. Just turn on the volume valve and you're ready to go. We do have a hot water re-circulation circuit so it ours might get to temperature faster so keep that in mind. I also looked at electronic ones but this seems to be a more elegant solution. I didn't want to have electrical devices behind the tile wall in case something goes wrong, and the electrical ones have controls outside of the shower but how do you adjust it while in the shower? 2 controls? Seems to be too much technology to address what this valve does more simply, reliably and more cheaply.
