We offer six types of valves, which we’ve explained below, and your showroom representative can help you determine which type is right for your chosen shower.
Sometimes simple, understated is the way to go. Our pressure-balancing valves are
an all-in-one solution that lets you turn the shower on and off as well as control water
temperature with one handle. Typically used with a showerhead or handshower and bath
spout, pressure-balancing valves are a great solution for a shower used by children or
guests. Step up your experience with a transfer valve and run up to three components.
Manual Thermostatic Valves
If you want to take a basic shower to the next level, a manual thermostatic system is the right choice for you. Perfect for elaborate customized showers, manual thermostatic valves let you set the temperature once and never have to adjust it again. Enjoy complete control of your showering experience using separate volume control valves to adjust the flow of each water delivery component – showerheads, handshowers, bodysprays – individually.
Digital Thermostatic Valves
Turn your shower into a spa-like retreat with one of our digital thermostatic valves – DTV Prompt®, DTV® or DTV II. Our digital showering systems invite you to create personalized sensory experiences with water, steam, lighting and music – all controlled with an easy-to-use, intuitive interface. Eliminate the multiple levers and knobs of a custom manual shower and design a clean, uncluttered shower space with a digital showering solution.
Used in conjunction with a Rite-Temp® pressure-balancing valve or with thermostatic and volume control valves, the 3-way transfer valve lets you control three different outputs to six different output options with a simple turn of the handle. The valve directs water flow to only one or a combination of two components at a time, creating a customized showering experience. KOHLER diverter valves are shipped as a 3-way diverter valve with 360° handle rotation, allowing control of three separate component options. The valve can be configured onsite to be used as a 2-way diverter valve with 120° handle rotation.
