Questions & Answers

is the wall bar made out of metal or plastic?

Asked by: Nikkonikko0116
Hello, my name is Leah with KOHLER Customer Service. I am happy to assist you with your valve question. I apologize you were unable to find the information you were looking for. I apologize I am not understanding what the "wall bar" is on the 304 pressure balancing valve. The body of the valve is brass construction, however the cartridge internal component is plastic. Please work with your local Home Depot for pricing and availability on this product. Thank you for choosing the Bold Look of KOHLER.

Rite-Temp 1/2 in. Pressure-Balancing Valve with Screwdriver Stops is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've loved Kohler valves for many years and this one... I've loved Kohler valves for many years and this one is no exception. I'm glad it has a built in screwdriver stop, which is a must. I just wished I didn't have to order the trim kit separately. I know there are different choices, but they should have some packages from a normal to the pricier ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made I found the product exceeded my expectation.s. In this era of "make do" products, I found the Kohler Rite temp valve to be of exceptional quality and value. The brass parts had a fine finish and all components operated smoothly and without any binding. I especially liked the inlet shut-off valves. It will make service, ( if needed in the future) easy, not having to shut-off the main supply valves. I found the instructions packaged with the unit to be complete and relatively easy to understand, giving several installation scenerios.. I am looking to purchase this product in the future for another bathroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from solid product, vague instructions The valve is solid and works well. It looks durable. It's what I expect from Kohler. My issue is with the documentation. Tiny, vague illustrations with as little explanation as possible. Blocks and blocks of multilingual instructions that make the instruction sheet almost impossible to read. Just trying to figure out the correct depth placement in the wall took too long and left me uncertain about whether the installation was correct. Maybe Kohler saved 35 cents by shrinking and cramming all the info into one tiny booklet, but it wasted my time and wasn't necessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great valve, however First thing, this is the same valve you'd get from a more expensive supplier that specializes in faucets/lighting. Second, once my remodeler took a minute to read the instructions he was able to install it pretty quickly. The only reason I don't give this a 5 is because the cartridge was bad. A replacement from HD for the order would take 2-3 weeks so my contractor had to go buy a new valve and swap out the cartridges. The cartridge costs about 75-80% of the total cost of the valve and no supplier carried just the cartridge on hand.

Have always been extremely satisfied with Koehler products and this unit shoud work well and be just as durable. Installion was very easy but make sure you read and follow the enclosed directions. Picked this particular unit because it has "stop screws" that can shut off the water at the valve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Directions This is a well made mixer valve. Impressive. To bad the directions with there terminology aren't more conducive for a do it the yourself person. To me very difficult to understand just where the position should be. I took a best guess and was a little short when I went to install the trim. It was my first attempt with this kind of valve. My advice is make sure everything fits easily between a two by four width.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well with the Devonshire line As recommended by Kohler, this valve works well with the Devonshire line. We purchased two - one for our shower and one for our tub. No complaints from our plumber in terms of installation.
