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

Asked by Eva October 5, 2020
2
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.

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!,,

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.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. If I could give this item negative stars, I would, as it has destroyed my dining room ceiling, directly below my bathroom. Let me elaborate: What you cannot tell from the product description is that, unlike most bath tap/diverters, this tap does not thread on. It slips on, and is supposed to grab on to your copper pipe with the aid of an allen key and an internal clamp system. The first time we installed this in the bathroom, we noticed that water was flowing backwards, toward the shower wall from the diverter. I immediately turned the tap off, and contacted Kohler support. They sent me a new internal clamp, which is a devil to get in, but we did get it in, and attached the tap, which worked OK for about a week. However, my young daughter - 4 years old - recently started taking a shower and by the mere action of her pulling up on the diverter function, she IN HER MIGHTY STRENGTH (I'm being sarcastic, she's only 4), managed to dislodge the diverter enough from it's grip to prompt the tap to backflow again. Of course she didn't notice this, and didn't notice likely gallons of water spilling into the cavity behind the shower wall. And now I'm looking at $1,500 to replace my dining room ceiling.
