Product Overview

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. This valve features the VersaFlex Integral Diverter, which diverts water flow to a variety of outlets without the need for a separate diverter valve. 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 five-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

So, here you are installing a tub/shower in your bathroom and you want to make sure that all the parts and pieces will work for a long, long time. After all, it would be a sad thing to put in all that time, energy and cost only to find that you didn't put in the good stuff. Well, this is the good stuff. It's made from all the right materials and assembled exactly as it should be. If you install this, you will be doing it right and it will last and last.

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 EasySer...
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.

Poor mechanical design, tub spout leaks in shower mode
I had a plumber help me install this and upon testing, the tub spout always leak no matter how far we crank the diverter switch. Then, when we crank the diverter switch to the tub spout mode, the shower leaks water as well. The trim that goes along with this isn't great either (which I'll leave the review on the trim) because the diverter handle isn't tightly gripping the grids to turn the diverter mechanism. Overall, super disappointed after all the work to break the tiles and install the the rough-in valve.

This is obviously a high-end and very well made product. I have two minor complaints. First, the valve is quite stiff and has a very long "throw," meaning that you need to turn the handle around more than 360 degrees to get to the end. I've found that you need to do that initially to get the hot water flowing quickly. The second observation is that you really need to crank the valve to turn it all the way off. What most would consider normal torque leaves the valve partially open, resulting in a slow drip. I have come home several times to find the shower floor wet from a dripping head. Maybe it will break in a bit, but that is causing me a little concern with my new shower. Otherwise, I love the volume control function and the precision engineering.
