SV16 Installation & Operation Manual
INSTALLATION:
1. With installation guide 1 on the valve, position
shower valve 2 so that center of inlet ports are
2” ± 3/8” (51mm ± 9.5mm) from finished wall
ensuring the outlet port marked “T” is facing
down.
NOTE:
After the valve has been piped and before starting
finished wall, the rough-in guide will insure proper
size opening in finished wall for valve, access to
checkstops and for repairs.
2. Make up connections to the appropriate inlet
ports, marked “H” and “C”. Inlet connections
are combination 1/2” NPT and 1/2” sweat.
3. Valve is set-up for standard inlets. If reversed
inlets are required for back-to-back installation,
see “Back-To-Back Installation” page 5.
4. For shower only installation, see Figure 1
on page 3. Pipe directly from top outlet port to
showerhead and leave plug in bottom port.
Outlet port connection is 1/2” NPT female.
5. For tub and shower installation, see Figure
2 on page 3. Remove plug and pipe directly
from bottom outlet port to diverter tub spout
and top outlet port to showerhead. Outlet ports
connections are 1/2” NPT female. Valve is
designed to be used without the use of a twin
ell.
6. Remove rough-in guide 1.
7. Prior to installing valve trim, check for proper
operation of valve, on/off, flow and high
temperature limit. If temperature is not
satisfactory, refer to TEMPERATURE
ADJUSTMENT page 6 step 4.
8. Prior to installing valve trim, attach escutcheon
gasket 4 to the back of escutcheon 5 and gaskets
3 and 4 to the back of escutcheon 6 by removing
adhesive protection film and attaching as shown
in Figure 4 and 5.
NOTE: Insure that outer gasket 4 gap is
towards bottom of escutcheon 5.
9A. SV16 Valve Trim Installation: Figure 6
a. Remove adhesive protective film from
foam gasket 7 and wrap around valve
body as shown.
b. Place escutcheon with gaskets 5 over
valve and against finished wall and secure
with screws 8.
c. Push handle 9 onto valve stem and
secure with screw 10 using provided Allen
Wrench 11.
NOTE: If handle 10 does not sit properly in
escutcheon, remove stem insert 12 and rotate
so it sits on upper or lower ledge. Detail “A”.

valve so that center of inlet ports are 2-1/8” ±
3/8” (54mm ± 9.5mm) from finished wall,
ensuring the outlet port marked “T” is facing
down.
2. For 2” x 4” wall construction position, shower
valve so that center of inlet ports are 1-3/8” ±
1/4” (35mm ± 6mm) from finished wall,
ensuring the outlet port marked “T” is facing
down.
3. Make up connections to the appropriate inlet
ports, marked “H” and “C” on one valve and
reverse on the other, cold supply to “H” and hot
supply to “C”. Inlet connections are
combination 1/2” NPT and 1/2” sweat. Refer to
page 6 for cartridge removal and reversal.
4. To continue installations, follow steps 4-9A on
page 4 or 9B on page 5.

2. Cartridge Reversal and Reassembly:
a. Inspect valve cartridge 22 ensuring that 'D'
shaped grooves have cartridge screen O-rings
23 in them and that stainless steel screens 24
are seated. See Figure 8.
b. Insert cartridge 22 into valve body. Ensure the 'H'
(see detail) on the side of cartridge housing is on
the cold water supply side of valve casting. Take
note of the rib on the bottom of cartridge 22
(between the screens) and the slot in the bottom
of valve body are aligned. This is so when the
cartridge is installed, it seats in the valve casting
and cartridge will not rotate. See Figures 9 and
10.
c. With valve stem O-ring 25 assembled onto valve
stem 21, slide valve stem 21 onto cartridge stem
while holding in place. See Figure 11.

d. Inspect valve bonnet set screw 19 and ensure it
is in the backed out position. Slide bonnet O-ring
26 over threaded area on bonnet 20 and seat in
groove. See Figure 11. NOTE: For optional
Lever Handle, slide O-ring 26 into groove on the
top of bonnet 20.
e. Thread valve bonnet 20 into valve casting
turning clockwise. Apply pressure on top of stem
while screwing valve bonnet 20 into place. This
will keep cartridge from slipping out of slot while
bonnet is threaded into place. Tighten valve
bonnet 20 onto valve body firmly (180 In-Lbs).
Tighten set screw 19 with 1/16” Allen wrench
firmly (75 In Oz). This will prevent valve bonnet
20 from coming loose during use. See Figure 11.

SV16 Installation & Operation Manual
OFF POSITION SETTING:
1. Turn on hot and cold water supply. Open both check
stop assemblies by turning check adjustment screw 16
counterclockwise until screw tops out. Check for leaks
around bonnet and stop assemblies at this time.
2. Using handle, rotate valve stem 21 clockwise two full
turns. Continue to slowly turn handle clockwise until
water flow stops. Then continue to rotate handle
clockwise an additional 90 Deg. (1/4 turn) then stop.
Turn back counterclockwise slowly until the water flow
completely stops.
3. With the flow of water now shut off, place the first
temperature stop washer 18 on the valve stem 21
keyed on the counterclockwise side as close to the
bonnet stop as possible. See Figure 12.

FIGURE 12
4. Once temperature stop washer 18 is installed, slightly
open valve by turning stem with handle counterclockwise and then back clockwise until first
temperature stop washer 18 hits stop on valve bonnet.
At this time, ensure that water is shut off completely to
showerhead.
5. If not, rotate stop one tooth either way and repeat step
4 until the water flow is shut off and the temperature
stop washer 18 is against the valve bonnet stop.
21
HIGH LIMIT TEMPERATURE SETTING:
1. Rotate external stem 21 with handle counterclockwise measuring water temperature with a
thermometer until the high limit temperature is
reached. (Recommend 105° to 110 °F)
2. Place the second temperature stop washer 18 on the
valve stem 21 keyed on the clockwise side as close to
the valve bonnet stop as possible. Rotate counterclockwise until it is fully against bonnet stop (full hot).
See Figure 13.

3. At full hot, use thermometer to verify required high
limit temperature is reached.
4. With valve in the “ON” position and water running
install the retaining ring 17 with snap ring pliers.
Confirm snap ring is inserted properly on groove of
stem. (When water is running, the external stem 21 is
pushed outward increasing the exposure of the snap
ring groove.) See Figure 14.
