Is only the tub spout with diverter in brushed nickel available for purchase?

Asked by Eva October 5, 2020

Answers

Yes was available when I purchased the tub and shower facet. Had to modify the length due to a deeper tub, but an easy fix

Can this be used in just a shower with the same valve? Or is this only only for a tub?

Hi, this is Laura with Kohler Co. I am happy to assist you with your question. The valve and faucet trim will need replacing to change to the Katun bath/shower faucet. This would involve access to the valve in the wall to solder it in place. Thank you for choosing Kohler.

This shower faucet is absolute garbage! I had a plumber install while I was renovating our home, it leaked from the interior components, this wasn't a fault of the plumber. Kohler sent a new one. I had to repair drywall that was damaged. The nice large handle, it barely moves from the 6 O' clock position to the 11 O' clock position. You can actually see this in the photographs provided by Kohler. Using the faucet, my daughters were complaining the water was never hot, even though our hot water heater is set to 132 degrees. So I tested the water temp at all faucets in our home using a reliable digital thermometer. 5 faucets in our home disperse hot water at 122-123degrees. This Kohler faucet disperses water at 112degrees. A LOSS of 20 degrees!! The water coming out of the shower nozzle barely feels warm. I am very unhappy with this faucet and wish it was easier to swap out. Buyer Beware!!! Photos below illustrate the limited movement of the large handle. That is all the movement there is.

Response from Kohler Product ExpertJan 26, 2021
Hi ToddM, this is Sarah with Kohler Co. I'm very sorry to hear your Katun shower faucet is not reaching an ideal hot water temperature. I'm happy to share, this can be set by the installer or user. Here is a video link showing how this can be done: https://youtu.be/gcDenZCkh2Q. Once the water is at the ideal temperature, the valve can be reassembled. It is not designed to be set above 120 degrees. Please email us at KohlerCustServ@kohler.com for additional assistance. We're here to help. -Sarah S. Kohler Customer Service

Not your usual shower install package!
Quality of parts (most of it is metal) but the shower head and coverings are plastic. READ the instructions before tearing out the old and trying to replace, there are filament and connections on this package not like a straight up replacement package. The spout connection if not setup correctly with length of pipe, internal clamp will make the install leak as this is not a screw on style connection! Be careful as my internal clamp portion was out of the spout when I opened the package (bad quality control) and had to fight the urge to throw the whole thing out and buy another after getting it back in the correct way. Beyond all of this if you have patience and tools and some prior DIY you can install this. I think it looks nice after install but before we were finished with the shower walls, etc I test fit and tried before the final install, no matter how big or small the job.

Flashy modern look, only downside, the shower head is plastic, as well as the square around the water temperature nozzle. water comes out at full stream and the temperature is easy to adjust. dried water marks show easy, but I'm sure any brush Nickle faucets do the same. $200 well spent.

DO NOT PURCHASE!!!!
I purchased this item as a part of a full bathroom remodel. Unfortunately the tub spout continues to leak. I’ve contacted Kohler and they sent me a replacement which also leaks. This is frustrating seeing that bathroom tile was already placed leaving me scrabbling to resolve the spout issue. The Katun model is not threaded and uses what’s called a “slip fit” which is completely useless. BUYER BEWARE!,,
by Fredyjr
Response from Kohler Product ExpertMay 7, 2020
Fredyjr, my name is Jessica with Kohler Customer Service. I am sorry to hear of the leaking you are experiencing with your Katun spout. We take pride in our designs and are disappointed that your experience has been less than exceptional. This faucet comes with a spout that requires a slip fit installation with the tube being 4-3/4"-5" from the wall. We would like to speak with you further and assist with a resolution. Please contact our Customer Service team at KohlerCustServ@kohler.com. We hope to hear from you soon. - Jessica P. Kohler Customer Service.

Nice product but can be troublesome to set up
My contractor installed and set up the entire plumbing and including Kohler Katun set. My wife showed me many of the negative reviews and at first was afraid I bought the wrong faucet set. I’m just grateful to say my set was troublesome but manageable to complete. We are totally happy and thankful things worked out well. No leaks or plumbing issues. I recommend this product.

I will leave another review if I notice the same problem that other customers report experiencing. For now, I have to say that I am at least pleased with the look of this product. My husband says that it "feels" cheap (as if it is a plastic material). I did notice that the shower head is difficult to tilt. In fact, I left a question asking if it pivots (after I first started using the shower). It does indeed pivot but it is very difficult to tilt/adjust the shower head. It could be my contractor's issue and how he installed it. For now, I am content but I will beware based on consumer reviews.

Beautiful sleek design! I think anyone who is giving negative reviews for low water pressure or leakage may be due to an installation issue. I was nervous about the pressure because of the reviews but mine is just as it was with my previous fixture. I have no leaking from anywhere and I also haven't noticed water spots as someone else mentioned. The plate around the handle is plastic but everything else is heavy duty metal. My only problem was that when I purchased it someone swapped out the valve with an incorrect one so we spent hours troubleshooting what the problem was until we purchased a new one and realized what some idiot did! Unfortunately Home Depot didn't catch the problem to save us the headache but Kohler was very helpful when we called before figuring this out.
