Customer reviews for Pressure Balance Unit for Single-Control Tub/Shower Valve

Pressure Balance Unit for Single-Control Tub/Shower Valve

This Pressure Balance Unit maintains a constant output temperature in response to changes in hot and cold supply pressure. This means there’s less chance you’ll experience dramatic changes in water temperature. The diaphragm system with integrated check valves is engineered to eliminate cross flow and this Pressure Balance Unit is also designed to avoid failure due to mineral deposits, so it is ideal for use in hard water areas.

I am no plumber by any means. Similar to justme's review I experienced an obstruction which caused very low or no (hot or cold) water pressure. I replaced the old pressure unit with this item along with a new AS cartridge for good measure (and piece of mind) and now we can take hot showers in Niagara Falls if we want.
The only other option I had was a costly one involving a complete valve body replacement, destroying/replacing perfectly good bathroom tile, some drywall work and cutting/soldering copper pipe. Going in from the other side of the wall is not an option because that area is covered up by our kitchen cabinets with granite counters.
Here's a Pro-tip I learned from the internet: Dab a bit of petroleum jelly on a Q-tip and coat the black O-rings so that they won't dry out and therefore last longer that way.
Pros: Easy to Install, No Leaks
Cons: can't think of any.

I had less Hot water pressure vs. Cold water pressure. Manufacturer recommended checking for obstruction or damaged O-ring. I chose to get a new one just in case the O-ring was damaged and difficult to find/replace. I found the obstruction, but , decided to install the new valve ,because the calcuim build up from the hard water. Now, Hot water pressure is great!
Pros: Easy to Install, Strong Water Pressure
