Works almost too well Rated 3 by ShowerFrustration Yes, I recommend this product. Okay...we built our home in 2010. It's wonderful and we have all American Standard faucets, shower, toilet etc. The real complaint is that our downstairs shower valve (anti-scald) keeps "popping". Meaning the water is coming out hot and then it "pops" not allowing you to continue to turn the water to hot. It's like there is a brick wall in the handle. The first time it did it (two winters ago), we replaced the valve - no big deal and we went on with life. The next year, it "popped" again and we replaced it. Again, not a big deal thinking it's keeping us safe. However, it has now done it for a third time and third year in a row. Now we have to replace it again. It's getting expensive. The upstairs shower has the exact same head/hardware/valves and we've never had a problem. So although the anti-scald thing is great, for some reason it overdoes it's job on our downstairs shower. Yes, I still recommend it for the safety feature but this is the last time I'm replacing it. It does it again and I'll get something completely different.

Ease of use Rated 5 by Flipper Yes, I recommend this product. This is the only valve that gives you volume control and temperature control in a single lever valve. It is unbeatable for the price. Originally posted on Americanstandard-us.com Jun/2014
Volume Control Rated 4 by CaliGirl This is one of the few valves on the market that provides volume control on a Pressure Balance valve at a competitive price. Originally posted on Americanstandard-us.com Jun/2012
