Kohler Shower Mixer Valve Replacement




What do you think about this video?

newyota1: Did you get the part from Kohler directly?You know they have free replacement for original home owner?There is a balancing valve behind that you probably should have puled out and replaced while you where in there.Have done this job a few times myself on my two bathrooms.

Bow Industries: Great video!

John Luchetta: You're not replacing the mixer valve, you are only replacing the mixer cap! This is a misleading title...

djeasyed: This was very helpful. Thanks for posting. I got the job done using your instructions.

bcleveland1959: Included with your new valve should have come a small packet of DC-111 lube for o rings. I searched utube to make sure I put it on the correct o rings but yours didn't show that. Know anything about it?

bigbooklisa: Very helpful video. You're a good teacher. I wish you hadn't cut it short before showing how to adjust the hot/cold mixer and line up the handle.

Scott Jangro: @Orrphan yes, actually mine does wobble a little bit. I figured maybe I need to get back in and tighten up the screw that holds the handle on. A year later it's still going strong.

dforte119: Nice explanation, thanks for posting this video. One thing I discovered that is useful is that the decorative sleeve serves as the tool to remove the collar which holds on the trim plate. Jut reverse it, and it has two prongs which fit perfectly into the slots.

alongjoresl: Very smooth transitions between settings. Built solid. I have had several other companies, this is the best one, even for twice or three times the money here is the link to it in case anyone is interested: amzn.to\1360yIf

J L: Thanks for the video! Our plumber was stumped on how to pull the plate off the wall until we found this and showed it to him - he was impressed!

holywar911: nice vid...im a handyman in nyc but work in building so i dont always get to work on nice faucets....lol

Joyce Hodnett: Thank you very much.

Nattybleh: thank you SO much! i was just about to call a plumber and god knows how much (s)he would have charged me!!

Orrphan: Nice. I like to turn the water on for one second while everything is apart, just to flush the lines. Did that handle still have a little wobble to it when completed?

Joe Schafer: Nice how to video, good job! I noticed you used one to many parts installing the new part and missed the most important part to replace, the pressure balancing cartridge that sits inside the valve behind the part you replaced. A ton of people miss replacing that part and have a future leak because of it. I've had customers replace the valve, because they kept replacing the part you did and never knew there was another.

Michelle Daikos: Buy a Symmons mixing valve

EMT: Thanks! They sometimes skip corners and take the easy way. If they ever did that, I suggest you consult with a paralegal or lawyer. This way they won't be able to cheat you.
