Customer Questions & Answers

Does valve completely shut water off?

Asked by: Anonymous
No. It's not a stop valve. It's a valve that can reduce the flow to a comfortable level that you chose. It will reduce the flow to a fast drip.

Our water pressure is high-enough to be stinging when taking a shower. Is this the appropriate device to reduce the pressure?

Shower Volume Control Valve is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 23.
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.

Works as intended; however, it should have come with a washer for the female end. It would have been nice if it came in a brushed nickel finish to match our bathroom décor better.

No rubber washers included, you will need them if not connecting to tapered pipe threads. Nice chrome finish.

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 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 Exactly what I was looking for. This valve is perfect for what I wanted to install in the shower to save water.

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?
