Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Woody The meaning of "trickle"
Be advised, the "trickle feature" means that it does not completely shut off flow. I returned the one I purchased because I wanted shut-off control as well as full volume.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LeadButt Saves water
In the shower we have one handle to mix hot and cold water. Shower head is on a wand and always sprayed too hard when correct temperature was dialed in, sending water splashing all over the glass enclosure. This controller did exactly what I hoped it to do. Less wasted water and minimal clean up from overspray. 5 stars not given as water cannot be stopped completely with this device.

As advertized. The trickle feature is a good reminder the V/v is closed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Manya Plastic is way cheaper but metal will last
hey 20 bucks for a volume control nob not bad when the handle is now over 100 dollars....but for now I will try the 5 dollar valve from Lowes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dnatoy This control is for hand shower only, not a wall-mount.
Had to return. Nobody mentioned that it had flow control built-in (about 1/4" drill), which allowed less than 1.5 gpm. Not usable for shower head. May be suitable for hand shower. Not suitable for my situation. I have great pressure (about 70 psi), but shower head is 4 gpm which creates problem with hot water for consecutive showers. Did not work for me as solution.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Raining Nice looking, but opening is too small.
Works fine, but the opening is too small ( about 1/4 inch) to use on any normal shower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Twinki This device solved our problem.
Sept. 2012. We recently had our bathroom remodeled. We now have a walk-in shower with a bench on the wall opposite 5 showerheads and control levers. The shower is larger than standard (6' wide) so we had the plumber install the handheld device closer to the bench, in case we needed to sit down for whatever reason (we are seniors). After the shower was completed, we realized the handheld device did not have an "off" button. As it is attached to the wall facing the door, if I turned on that device first, it sprayed all over the door (and me). Our plumber ordered this flow control valve. Because of plumbing codes, the water does not shut off completely, even when the valve is in the "off" position. Instead, the water slows to a small spray, more than a trickle. The only thing I don't like about it is that the handle itself is plastic and feels very flimsy when I turn it. However, the handheld device no longer sprays the door (or me) when I turn it on. It only took the plumber a few minutes to install. I suspect we could have done it ourselves if we'd tried. As this was just added a few days ago, I can't really say how long it will work, but it does say on the card that it is guaranteed for life.
