  • 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°F
  • 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)
  • 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

There are both stops for both hot and cold water integrated in the valve, you just need to fully open up both :) That's how it was solved my water pressure issue on the hot water side, both stops shall turn towards the valve, your hot water stop probably is not right now.

Would there be any difference in installing valve K-304-k-na or k-304-ks-na?

The KS has a screwdriver stop on the valve which enables you to turn off water to the valve (if you need to do any maintenance) without shutting off water to the whole house at the main. The K does not have that feature.

How can I get more hot water?

It should work. The valve comes with adapters for most Kohler trim hardware. Contact Kohler if it doesn't - they tend to stand behind their stuff.

Out of four "O" rings in the valve cartridge, one was missing and the other was broken. Water sprayed all over the area. Thankfully I had a couple of "O" rings that fixed the problem. You would think that after spending $90 on the valve, it would work right the first time.

Installed from open wall behind existing shower. Used PEX adapters, screwed and glued 2x4 mounting blocks. Instructions not too clear. Pressure fine, maybe a bit strong.

The installation instructions were almost inscrutable but the valve is well-built and went into an existing installation relatively smoothly. The valve works very smoothly and has not been any trouble since putting it in. I needed the valve to go with the Kohler shower hardware - nothing is very universal it seems. Quite happy with the result.

This shower valve was not versatile enough to work with the depth of my wall and the trim kit that goes with it. I had to solder the two stem adapters that came with it together to get the stem out of the wall far enough to attach to the knob. It was a miracle this worked.
