About This Product

This Rite-Temp pressure-balancing valve works behind the scenes to prevent scalding and thermal shock for optimal comfort. Additionally, the unit features a diaphragm design that virtually eliminates freeze-ups from contamination and water debris. When paired with compatible trim, this valve delivers a high-temperature limit stop and an optimal comfort zone, so you can set a maximum high and then find and maintain your desired water temperature.

  • Provides anti-scald protection and temperature regulation
  • Back-to-back installation is ideal for unique or high-volume jobs
  • High-temperature safety stop ensures water temperature stays below 120 degree F
  • Integral screwdriver stops allow you to turn off the water supply at the valve
  • Mounting tabs located on rough-in for secure installation option
  • 5.0 GPM (gallons per minute) flow rate
  • Universal NPT and direct sweat connections need no additional parts for installation
  • Requires valve trim (sold-separately)
  • Brass construction

Q:Will this replace my existing Kohler valve without having to solder?
by|Jul 2, 2018

Answer This Question

A:  I used threaded Shark-Bite connectors. Threaded them onto the threads provided and pushed in my PEX tube. Worked great! If not using Shark-Bite you will have to use solder connections or compression connectors.

    A:  You will need to transition from the valve to existing plumbing, either by soldering (sweating) and NTP adapter, or using shark bite type of fittings, chances are is your old valve has fittings that are sweated, and you will have to them remove before you can take old valve off.

      A:  Hello David, my name is Tiffany with Kohler Co. I am happy to answer the question about the Rite temp valve. Your old valve will need to be removed for this one to be installed. Please check with your local installer for other installation questions. Thank you for choosing KOHLER.

        A:  I left the original brass housing installed and just removed the guts of the old valve and put the new internals in. Worked like a charm! Didn't have to tear anything out of the wall or re-solder. Took all of about 30 minutes to do. My old valve wasn't mixing the hot and cold properly...so I replaced the internals and it works like new.

                  Did not get the part on time so ending up using a different fixture.

                  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.

                  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.

                  Awesome valve. My plumber was happy with the quality and my water pressure is much better. It was a bit expensive, but I feel you need to put quality behind the wall and I'm happy I went with this valve. I would highly recommend this product.

                  Excellent pressure coming out of this valve.
                  I bought this Kohler 5gpm valve online after returning a Moen valve that barely dribbled water out of the shower head. Also bought a Kohler shower head and handle to go with it. Both fit well and work well together. Although the shower head is rated at 2gpm, this 5gpm valve applies lots of pressure at the nozzle. Definitely a good price for a good mixing valve. I'm not sure why Home Depot doesn't carry this in stores but online ordering was easy and delivery was swift and correct.

                  Great product! I would recommend this product to anyone changing shower fixtures.
                  This is a great product and I will use this when I upgrade my other shower later in the year. It was easy to install and works great.
