Valve is ok….stops are garbage
We use these at my work. The valves last about 2 years in a hotel so not great life span but not horrible either. However the stops break every single time we shut them. This product needs metal stops and not plastic ones.

Hi Burnoutbluedog, this is Sarah with Kohler Co. I am very sorry to hear the screwdriver stops broke upon shutting them off. This is nothing you should expect during normal use. We recommend using a wide flat blade screwdriver to open and close the stops. Using a flat blade that does not fill the entire slot may cause the product to strip. Please call our team directly at 1-800-4KOHLER (M-F; 8am-5pm CST) for additional assistance. We are here to help. -Sarah S. Kohler Customer Service

      Buy only if your thing is lukewarm showers
      Water for a shower is only warm not hot enough and can't be adjusted.

        Horrible temperature adjustment
        These valves were installed at the hospital I'm working at. The temperature adjustment cannot be fine tuned. One spline on the limit stop is 12°f -20°f. These temps are unacceptable.
