BRAINTREE, Mass., April 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Symmons Industries, Inc. is excited to announce the launch of its new Temptrol shower valve, which is available for purchase starting Tuesday, April 2, 2019. The new Temptrol's features and options are in response to one of plumbing and general contractors' greatest challenges: rising costs. Today's launch also introduces the Temptrol Rapid Install, which combines the Temptrol valve with a new mounting bracket, further reducing the time and costs required to install the valve.
Originally released in 1968, the Temptrol shower valve put an end to Shower Shock, which refers to the sudden and dangerous change in temperature that occurs when a toilet is flushed or hot water is run elsewhere in the plumbing system while someone is showering. Today's launch is the first major change to the Temptrol valve in over 50 years, making the highest quality shower valve in the industry now faster and easier to install.
What's new about the Temptrol valve:
- Inlets and outlets are on one common plane — fits in a 2x3 or modular wall
- Available factory-installed PEX crimp, PEX cold expansion, and CPVC connections
- Stringer mounts are built into casting
- Available test cap
- Back-to-back installation with same valve body
What hasn't changed about the Temptrol valve:
- Still uses TA-10 flow control spindle
- Stainless-steel piston
- Red brass casting
- Available with integral service stops
- Temperature limit stop screw
- Compatible with existing and future Symmons trims
- Made in Braintree, MA
Of the new Temptrol launch, Tim O'Keeffe, Chief Executive Officer, said, "The launch of our new valve is a true delivery on our commitment to putting our customers first by saving them significant time and labor costs required for installation. This is a remarkable achievement, yet another milestone in Symmons' rich 80-year history of innovation."
