About This Product

For more than 50 years, the Symmons Temptrol Pressure-Balancing Tub and Shower Valve has been the safe and reliable choice for pressure-balanced shower valves.The legendary Temptrol pressure-balancing, anti-scald mixing valve is the heart of every Symmons shower system. Each valve is constructed of solid brass, bronze, and stainless steel, and features an adjustable piston that instantly and continually balances the hot and cold water pressure as demand fluctuates in the plumbing system. An adjustable stop screw limits the maximum hot water temperature.The Temptrol features a one-piece cast brass body that is designed to accommodate back-to-back and thin-wall installations. Each valve is shipped with ½-inch NPT threaded and direct sweat connection inlets/outlets for easy installation, and factory-installed options are available for CPVC, PEX, and ProPress connections. Not only is the Temptrol valve easy to install, but it is also simple to maintain and adjust when needed. A quick turn of the EasyService Stops isolates the valve completely, without the hassle of shutting down the entire water supply to your house or building.All Symmons valves are backed with a lifetime limited warranty for consumers and a ten year warranty for commercial use, so if you have an issue, just let us know and we'll make it right.

  • Symmons EasyService Stops isolate the water supply to your shower without shutting down the entire system

    Q:What is the maximum flow rate GPM of this valve going to the tub outlet? Why doesn't the manufacturer list this information on their site?
    by|Jan 24, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The max GPM that can go through the valve is 7.5 GPM. This does not mean that you will get 7.5 GPM though. It is completely dependent on your PSI. If you have a low PSI of 10 for instance you will only see approximately 2.25 GPM. The max PSI that the valve will work with is 80 PSI which would give you that GPM of 7.5 provided your tub spout does not have a restrictor and is able to handle that much water. There are many variables.

      Q:How does the volume control work?
      by|Nov 2, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Whichever matching trim plate you choose with have a 2nd lever just underneath the on/off lever and that will be the volume control lever. It will reduce the volume of water when moved to the left and then restore it to normal when moved back to the right.

        Q:What shower only trim kits are compatible with this valve?
        by|Nov 15, 2020
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Any of our trim kits that start with an S would be compatible with this valve. The S denotes that it would have a spot for the diverter/volume control lever which this valve also has.

          Very reputable plumbing manufacturer who provides quality and easy to source replacement parts both online and locally. This shower valve is cast with quality brass and has service stops which allow you to perform repairs and maintenance w/o having to shut down water for the whole house. All that is required for installation is a chosen/selected exterior Symmons trim plate and handle assembly. Be sure and keep the installation sheets and the correct Symmons pressure balancing valve number which comes with this assembly just in case you perform your own maintenance and repairs.

          Symmons Temptrol Pressure-Balancing Tub/Shower Valve with VersaFlex Integral Diverter and EasyService Stops I have 2 of these installed and have had it last for a years in apartment building. Yes the other bathrooms have required maintenance work. My town is known for having hard water. In one, I've had to replace the diverter (snapped) and the valve as it was dripping. On the second one, I am replacing the seal. I've worked with Symmons and nice thing is they use the same valve everywhere. If you get used to working with them, they are quite simple and best of all you do not need to shut off entire building to fix one bathroom, the valve itself have shut off on it. The other benefit is if you call and ask to their support, they will often send you replacement parts. I would prefer if it was like Grohe and do no maintenance. But Grohes cost a lot more. On the other hand, they have one valve; you can find replacement in any big box stores at a reasonable price. There are plenty of online tutorials and their support is friendly.

          Symmons replacement shower valve
          I tried to order this Symmons valve without really knowing which one I needed. I initially ordered the wrong valve. After a phone call to Symmons I had the correct one ordered. The valve works perfect. Shower is working like new again.

          This is an excellent product. I am returning it, because I thought I had the wrong one, and it turns out that I had been sent the correct one and didn't need to order another. This is the perfect and best mixing valve.
