Can I use this with 1/2 inch hot and cold supply lines?

Asked by Mike March 17, 2021
1
Answer

Hi Mike, this is Keisha with Kohler Co. I am happy to address your question. K-2971-KS-NA is a 3/4" inlet/outlet valve. 3/4" NPT connection is required for the install of this valve to allow the correct flow and pressure of water to allow the valve to work as designed. If you have 1/2" plumbing then we would suggest K-8304-KS-NA. For any additional questions, please reach out to our customer service team at 1-800-456-4537. Thank you for choosing Kohler.

Hi, this is Laura with Kohler Co. I am happy to assist you with your question. The RiteTemp valve is a single control valve; it will allow you to control the temperature and turn the water on and off. A thermostatic valve plus volume control valve will be needed to control volume and temperature. Please call our Customer Care Center at 1-800-456-4537 (M-F, 8am-5pm CST) for assistance with determining which valves you need. Thank you for choosing KOHLER.

Hi Brian, this is Sarah with Kohler Co. I'm glad to answer your question. The installation steps are as follows. Determine the valve location and install 2x4 bracing behind the valve. Secure the valve piping to the bracing. This will hold the valve sufficiently in the wall. Thank you for choosing KOHLER.

Can i use a volume control with this valve?

Asked by ClarkGriswold August 28, 2015

Answers

Yes you can install a volume control valve downstream from this valve. It can handle flow rates as low as 1.75gpm. Well below the 2.5 gpm national standard. Referenced kohler valve installation page. "Provides anti-scald protection and temperature regulation at flow rates as low as 1.75 gpm; far below federally mandated standards of 2.5 gpm."

Rite-Temp® HiFlow pressure-balancing valve.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Excellent valve, provides exceptional water flow and moves firmly and smoothly thru the entire range. Stops on this valve help prevent accidents and are easy to access and adjust. This valve is substantial, heavy and well made. Down the road, if a leak is discovered, it will not be the fault of this valve. Great customer service and parts support can always be counted on and makes for an easy decision to purchase this valve. I would recommend this as a replacement for anyone. I don't think you would be disappointed.

This is a great valve. Unfortunately, Kohler has discontinued it. We have two other ones like it in our home, and we're currently remodeling another shower; I'm so happy Home Depot still had this valve available.

We installed the valve. It worked great and didn't leak. Just be sure to have your plumber adjust the max temperature higher. Kohler caps the max temperature or if the box at 104 degrees and that is luke warm at best.

If you want a high flow valve, this is the correct one. It is a monster! 13gpm is enough to supply six shower and body sprayers at the same time. I also used it to supply a K-922 laminar flow tub filler. It works perfectly to provide ample supply to the filler.
