1/2" CC (Copper to Copper) Pressure Balanced with Diverter and Volume Control from the Moentrol Collection
Works well, looks bad
After fitting the unit into the wall the Trim levers did not sit level against the plate.
The Volume Control Lever sticks out about 3/4 inch more than the Diverter Valve Lever when they are both pushed in to the 'closed' position.

Poor Installation Instructions
A large local plumbing contrator installed valve per instructions only to find out after wall was closed and tile installed that instructions are incorrect as to placement. When valve is placed per instructions the finished handles are nearly 3/4 of an inch away from escutcheon face. Looks pretty tacky. Plumber calls to Moen yielded little solution short of rework.

I am not a plumber, but I purchased this along with Moen 263 vertical spa. I had my plumber sweat in the copper tubing into the four outlets on the Value system.
My only complaint about this value system was "securing" it to the wall. It does not sit flush to any 2X4 for securing. Other than that, not much to say, as shower is not operational yet as we are still tiling.
If you are doing this yourself, paper instructions are poor. Check Moen for pdf's and better instructions.

leaking stop valve
After soldering and reassembly, when the water was turned on, water was coming out of the stop valve. While adjusting the stop to get it to stop leaking, the brass screw slot easily stripped out. While disappointed in how easily it stripped, I give kudos to Moen because they overnighted a new set. So now, I am happy with the product.

Good Quality - Fast Service
Made in America - Installation instructions are weak. Beware of compressing diverter valve stem during installation. Ensure valve is pulled out all the way prior to testing or it will not work. Use pliers to make it happen if necessary....really!
Live and learn, learn to live. Good luck!

This product works great, good feel, quality made and great value. This sells a lot more in specialty stores. I know you are probably wondering why valves cost so much... I still am too! But this is the best deal I could find anywhere and worth the money.

Instructions are incorrect
If you install this valve per the instructions, the trim will be about 3/4 inch away from the escutcheon face.
I highly recommend that you dry fit the trim during the installation.
Wished I had read the previous review prior to installing.

Moen quality product
My contractor suggested I go online to purchase this valve along with other moen items I needed. He gave me the numbers. I saved about $150 over wholesale price on valve and trim cover

Exactly what i needed
Needed a diverter and a control valve in one. Plumber didnt find at local chains. Fit perfectly in my wall and has been functioning great for past 2 months. Would purchase again.
