High flow 3/4 inch Rite-Temp® pressure balancing valve with stops

*Important* We recommend the K-304-K or K-304-KS for standard Residential 1/2" Connection Installation.

The new K-2971-KS supersedes the K-306-KS valve and features a redesigned pressure balance module to provide superior resistance to mineral deposits and aggressive water conditions combined with simplified installation and maintenance. The new valve utilizes existing K-306-KS valve trim and is dimensionally identical for simplified conversion to the new design.

  • High 13.0gpm flow rate - ideal for multiple outlet installations or rapid bath filling
  • Utilizes existing K-306-KS valve trim - completely interchangeable
  • Provides anti-scald protection and temperature regulation at flow rates as low as 1.75 gpm; far below federally mandated standards of 2.5 gpm
  • Superior resistance to aggressive or treated water conditions or mineral build-up
  • Forged brass one piece valve body for long term reliability
  • Back-to-back installation is ideal for unique or high-volume jobs
  • Replacement Cartridge #79703
  • For  3/4" NPT connections

Kohler K-2971-KS Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice valve - little tricky to adjust Ive used Kohler product in several remodels and went with this for a 60+ year old rehab. The existing plumbing is "rough" to say the least, and the hot supply is an oil burner. I found this to be a bit tricky to adjust for anything other than cold or lukewarm, but eventually got there. I also had a reversed installation - so check the documentation BEFORE you put this in the wall (you may still be able to get to it - mine is safely behind slab travertine - so its permanent!)

Yes, you can reverse the cartridge for the Kohler K-2971-KS by flipping the mixing cap 180 degrees.

Does this valve have integral stops?

Is this for shower only, or shower/bath combo?

The Kohler K-2971-KS is intended to be installed behind a shower control trim, which can be used with a shower or shower/bath combo, all it does is control water temperature and flow, what sort of spout it goes through is up to you. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Does this have the diverter built the valve?

The Kohler K-2971-KS is intended for use with a shower or shower/bath combo. It does not have a diverter if you are trying to divert the water to a handshower or bodysprays. You are going to need an actual diverter valve such as the K-728-K.

How do I find the matching valve trims ?

This valve is standard for all of Kohlers single handle trim. To make it easier on our site you can go through and find a trim you like when you add it to the cart it will recommend the valves that can be used.

Does this valve replace the K-304?

The Kohler K-2971-KS replaces the K-306-KS and are valves for 3/4" pipes. The K-304-K and K-304-KS are still available and are valves for 1/2" pipe.

is this necessary for a replacment of an existing showerhead, tub faucet or only a new install

The Kohler K-2971-KS is a valve that is determined by the trim piece you are using. As far as replacing the tub spout or showerhead the valve does not matter. But if you are looking to replace your trim piece and wanting to use the exhisting valve then you will want to make sure the valve is compatible with the trim piece you are replacing. Hope this answered your question but if not let me know. I would be happy to help.

I'm installing this valve...I need a 3/4 outlet transfer valve for rain and body shower.what tansfer valve do I need.? THANKS

Kohler's transfer valve is model Kohler K-728-K.

What is the measurement from center of valveto the finished wall?

The Kohler K-2971-KS would be 2-1/4 inches to 3 inches depending on the thickness of the wall.
