Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ottotek Easier to Use Than I Anticipated
This is the first time I have ever purchased a Shower Faucet in piecemeal fashion. I was converting our old tub/shower to a Shower Stall only, and did not want to have to pay the extra for the tub hardware which is usually included in every shower faucet kit. So I took a chance, and ordered just the pieces I needed. It worked out great! The instructions were clear, installation was easy, and everything worked correctly the first time, with no leaks or issues. And it worked out about $30 less than buying the complete kit, so mission accomplished! The Shower Head and Handle kit I wanted specified the Valve body, by part number, so it was very easy to order.

Simple installation as long as you have the right fittings. Not exactly for the typical DIY'er as it involves making 100% watertight plumbing connections. For remodel construction, fittings required will depend on your existing plumbing. I was able to use "Sharkbite" fittings to make the transition from existing tubing to threaded connections. More expensive to use the "Sharkbites" but much easier and less labor.

Easy to install. It was what was needed when installing new shower valve and head.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Good but unneeded
I bought this because I was installing a tile shower and after looking at trim pieces for the shower handle, concluded I needed to buy this separate because I found no mention of the valve being included with the trim. I also had to buy it online which was okay since I didn't need it for awhile. If needed in a pinch, it would of been a problem.
After installing it and tiling the shower, I purchased the trim pieces I wanted for the handle and that's when I found out it was included with the set so buying this separately was unneeded. The product itself functioned perfectly but a mention of this valve being included with trim selections would be useful.
Another note, If you are to buy this seperately, I would suggest buying the valve that includes the water shut offs included. I needed to finish my shower before I could sheetrock the back so I could turn the water on, it put my bathroom project a bit behind but that was my own fault. Regardless, good product but unless replacing it without needing the trim pieces, you'll find what you need with the trim set you like. Mine did atleast, can't confirm if it's with all trim sets.

Well made machined casting. Good instructions make an easier installation,
so many varibles on the jobsite make ease of install difficult to pin down.
Easy to leak test before closing wall or shower surround.
