Answer: 
Hi robertD,
If Pex tubing is approved in your area, it's perfectly fine to install. The Pex will not affect water pressure.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent pressure coming out of this valve. I bought this Kohler 5gpm valve online after returning a Moen valve that barely dribbled water out of the shower head. Also bought a Kohler shower head and handle to go with it. Both fit well and work well together. Although the shower head is rated at 2gpm, this 5gpm valve applies lots of pressure at the nozzle. Definitely a good price for a good mixing valve. I'm not sure why Home Depot doesn't carry this in stores but online ordering was easy and delivery was swift and correct. January 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works as designed No problems with the installation. I can't say much more ablout a valve. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Pressure Balancing Valve Now we can take showers while the washer is running or someone flushes the toilet. The actual water pressure may drop a bit, but the temperature remains pretty much the same. The only reason I put Good rather than Excellent for the "Ease of Installation" is because this valve was only available online, and was only available in the NPT threaded connections. I was hoping for a valve I could just sweat (solder) in. I had to buy the female threaded connections, connect them to the valve, then sweat those into my existing lines. Value was only Good instead of Excellent, because pressure balancing valves in general tend to be pretty expensive. March 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well Made I found the product exceeded my expectation.s. In this era of "make do" products, I found the Kohler Rite temp valve to be of exceptional quality and value. The brass parts had a fine finish and all components operated smoothly and without any binding. I especially liked the inlet shut-off valves. It will make service, ( if needed in the future) easy, not having to shut-off the main supply valves. I found the instructions packaged with the unit to be complete and relatively easy to understand, giving several installation scenerios.. I am looking to purchase this product in the future for another bathroom. July 22, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by solid product, vague instructions The valve is solid and works well. It looks durable. It's what I expect from Kohler. My issue is with the documentation. Tiny, vague illustrations with as little explanation as possible. Blocks and blocks of multilingual instructions that make the instruction sheet almost impossible to read. Just trying to figure out the correct depth placement in the wall took too long and left me uncertain about whether the installation was correct. Maybe Kohler saved 35 cents by shrinking and cramming all the info into one tiny booklet, but it wasted my time and wasn't necessary. March 6, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! I would recommend this product to anyone changing shower fixtures. This is a great product and I will use this when I upgrade my other shower later in the year. It was easy to install and works great. January 6, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great valve, however First thing, this is the same valve you'd get from a more expensive supplier that specializes in faucets/lighting. Second, once my remodeler took a minute to read the instructions he was able to install it pretty quickly. The only reason I don't give this a 5 is because the cartridge was bad. A replacement from HD for the order would take 2-3 weeks so my contractor had to go buy a new valve and swap out the cartridges. The cartridge costs about 75-80% of the total cost of the valve and no supplier carried just the cartridge on hand. January 3, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rite Temp Pressure Balancing Shower Valve A very high quality shower valve, what you expect from Kohler. Instructions are very complete and easy to understand. It's a very heavy duty valve so you will need a very hot flame to sweat the copper pipes, I had to buy a container of Mapp gas because Propane just wouldn't put out enough heat. I haven't had the new shower very long so I can't say how well the valve operates yet but I am confident that any product that Kohler makes works just fine. January 1, 2010
