Classic Tub and Shower Trim Package with Independent Volume Control, Monitor and Touch Clean Technologies
Small detail never mentioned
We bought this tub and shower trim to match the shower-only fixture we had in another bathroom that we love - the separate temperature and pressure controls.
But in a tub, you have to pull out a ring in the faucet to get the shower to come on, and you can't keep it in 'shower only' mode like every other tub faucet I've ever used.
So it gets points removed for this...

Like the seperate temperature control
I purchased this faucet because the temperature control is seperate from the on/off control. It works great but during installation you may have to adjust the handle assembly so the water is off while your are installing the handles. The instructions do not explain how to do this so you will have to figure it out yourself. Also, the pull down on/off switch for the shower is not quick. The water has to be coming from the shower completely before you can release the pull down knob. If you are not patient you will not like this. I would buy this again as I like how it works.

I returned this faucet and kept looking. First, the shower head was (to my mind) much heavier and clunky looking than would appear from the picture. Second, every piece -- but particularly the tub spout -- both looked and felt cheap and plastic. I talked with two different customer services reps, and they very helpfully confirmed that, indeed, these faucets are almost entirely plastic. The good news: FaucetDirect was quite honest about its products. If I'd asked before I purchased, I'm quite certain they would have steered me right.

shower fixture set review
This product was exactly what I needed and the style + finish were exactly what I wanted. The product came in excellent condition with no scratches or chips to finish. Packaging was economical yet did the job. This not only protected the product but also saved in shipping costs and environmental excess waste. Thank you for stocking and offering great quality, hansome fixtures at affordable prices.

does the job
I renovated 2 baths recently. In the first I used Kohler shower/tub faucets which don't allow you to control the volume of water unless you spend a few hundred extra for another handle and additional plumbing. With this model from Kohler you can control the volume, and it works well. The overall appearance is its negative. It looks a little flimsy. This is in contrast to the Delta kitchen faucet I recently bought, which is solid as all heck.

Well made & solid
I bought this because it had controls for hot/cold, as well as pressure. Just know that "peal nickle" is more yellow in color than silver. So if you are looking for more of a brushed chrome color, this is not for you.
