Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Why don't these shower head volume controls completely shut off water flow from my shower head?"
A. The flow control valves (included) are intentionally designed to not be able to shut off completely. This is done for safety reasons. Consider if you shut both valves off completely at the heads (rather than shutting off the shower valve). You then would have the hot and cold water both on at the same time - connected. That means that which ever side has more pressure would then push itself (either the cold going into the hot line or the hot going into the cold side). That means that there now is a potential to get completely all hot water coming out of cold sides of valves. Including when you turn the valves back on at these shower heads. All hot water could come out and that could scald you. To help prevent potential scalding the volume control valves won't shut off completely.
Q. "Some of the shower regulator washers say TPE in the description. What does TPE mean?"
A. TPE is the abbreviation for thermoplastic elastomers. These washers are made of this material which are processed like plastics but provide a product that functions like a rubber. TPE's are very flexible and can be stretched repeatedly to at least twice their original size at room temperature and then return to the approximate original size and shape when released. The TPE's used in these regulator washers have an excellent resistance to weather and ozone conditions and are approved for drinking water.
