Pressure-Balancing Valves

A sudden change in water pressure (such as someone flushing a toilet or starting up a load of laundry) can cause your shower to go from warm to scalding hot in seconds. To prevent this, you will need to install a pressure-balancing valve in your shower. Kohler's Rite-Temp Pressure-Balancing Valve features a high-temperature limit stop and an optimal comfort zone, allowing you to set a maximum high and then find and maintain your desired water temperature. The unit also works to prevent water temperature from suddenly dipping during instances when hot water is diverted.
