Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by YoDaddy Simple drop in replacement
Simple drop in replacement for my older AS valve body that had developed pitting / corrosion on the o-rings seats. Overall good value in dual control (temp / volume).
Since I am not a plumber I opted for the the threaded valve body - that way if I botched sweating a joint none of my mistakes were soldered to the expensive parts. I removed the plastic parts for sweating pipes and had to re-seat the parts a few times to get drip free operation but now it works great.
My existing AS trim plate did not fit (screw alignment is different) so I ordered an inexpensive Colony handle set to complete the installation. Had I known this I probably would have purchased the whole thing (valve and trim) as a set.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ShowerFrustration Works almost too well
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.

This is the only valve that gives you volume control and temperature control in a single lever valve. It is unbeatable for the price.

This is one of the few valves on the market that provides volume control on a Pressure Balance valve at a competitive price.
