Answer: 
No, and it mustn't. Total closure results in a crossover. The hot water pressure, from the heating expansion, is slightly greater than the cold and would back the cold up so the first pulse when it is opened would be scalding hot.

I prefer the $10.00 option of buying this item VS. the tear out job where a matching the existing valve with the same style lever and finish could run well into the 100's of dollars.
Save the more expensive option later when you plan to remodel the whole Bathroom and absorb these hisgher costs into that project. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi Al,
No. In order to comply with plumbing code, this valve cannot shut all the way off. This is to prevent accidental bursting or backflow to other faucets due to the water not being turned off at the valve. It does offer the benefit of keeping your water warm while the valve is in use.
Best regards,
Danco Support

Answer: 
Hi Al, this valve is designed for you to use during your shower, but not as a shut off control valve. You use by turning on the water, get wet, turn water off at the valve, lather up, turn on the valve and rinse. This can shut off the water, however if you use this product that way, it causes cross connects. Always use the shower handles to turn water completely off after use.

Shower Volume Control Valve is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from slow the flow I needed to reduce the water flow into the shower head. My landlord just replaced the shower valve with a control mechanism that does not regulate the water flow. I do not need a Niagra Falls :gusher:" to take a shower. This valve does the trick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to Easy to install, working great, looks nice. Costs much less than a new low flow showerhead.
Date published: 2016-08-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as expected A tiny trickle when it is "off", which is what it should do. Total closure would result in a "crossover" where the hot water would back up the cold and would result in a scalding pulse of pure hot water when it was opened. The trickle prevents that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made solid valve body with smooth control and chrome finish. This is a well made solid valve body with a very smooth action valve control on the side. Very little effort is required to adjust water flow. One note on the particular valve I received is the quality control of assembly was not maintained. When I installed the valve on the shower pipe and turned on the water, the control handle on the side popped out of the valve body. At that moment I was very disappointed after waiting a week to receive the valve and I was ready to return it for a refund, when upon closer inspection I noticed the set screw used to hold the valve handle in the valve body was not screwed all the way into the fully seated position. After tightening the set screw, the valve worked as promised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for. This valve is perfect for what I wanted to install in the shower to save water.
Date published: 2014-02-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, simple add-on to save water. Easy to install, works as described. Appears to be well made, valve operates smoothly, can vary the flow. We use it to shut off water when shaving, shampooing or when getting out of the shower when next in family is in line. You can set it at a very low spray to keep yourself warm, off or a dribble to just to keep the water warm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a Shut-Off Valve!! This is a volume control, NOT a shut-off valve as advertised by Danco! When challenged with this fact, a Danco representative claimed that the valve is designed to allow some water through to avoid backup pressure damaging the valve. I'm not a rocket scientist, but that sounds like the definition of a VOLUME CONTROL! You cannot say it "shuts off" anything if it doesn't completely shut off the flow of water. Have you ever seen a toilet or sink shut off valve that allows water to continue to flow?
