Product Technologies / Benefits:
Lifetime warranty: As an American company, American Standard showers are built tough. Their products live longer in one place than most people do. Drip-free ceramic disc valves, high-grade lead-free brass alloys, and turbine shower heads cables name just a few of the features which make American Standard shower components the industry’s longest lasting. To back this up, all American Standard showers are covered under a lifetime warranty.

American Standard R520 Reviews
Rated 2 out of
not too happyThe instructions actually had pictures showing and stating to install this valve upside down. My plumbers charged me a fortune because of the incorrect instructions as they followed them exactly but then it didn't work, so they had to take it off and re-do. It still doesn't work. PLUS, when I ordered it I specifically asked if there were any other parts I needed for my tub/shower combo and they said no. Well, not true, there was another tiny valve that was NOT included and we've yet to find anyone who carries it. This little part is shown on the instructions but does state "sold separately" which would have been nice to know beforehand. So despite the great look, my bathroom is still unuseable.

great valveHave 2 of these, one is 10 years old and the other is brand new. One slow leak developed in the old one and customer service couldnt seem to get us the correct replacement part. Other than that we love the unit.
