INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Tempress Pressure Balancing Valve
Valve Body No. 1-595
as used with Tub and Shower Fittings
Description
This valve is precision engineered to provide satisfactory performance provided it is installed and operated in
accordance with our recommendations contained in these instructions. In order to fully enjoy the comfort,
safety and the reliability of this valve, be certain to familiarize yourself with these instructions.
Operation
The pressure balancing cartridge contained in this valve
compensates for pressure fluctuations in the water supply system through a diaphragm-connected pressure balancing mechanism. The outlet temperature will change by
no more than a mere ±2°F (1°C) with a 50% drop in
either the hot or cold water pressure. Even if the cold
water pressure fails completely, the anti-scald design will
reduce the flow rate to a safe level ensuring reliable protection against scalding. The built-in check valves prevent
cross flow between the hot and cold supplies.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
On tiled wall surfaces, grouting must be either flush or raised for proper sealing of the cover plate.
IMPORTANT: It is not necessary to remove the cartridge from the valve during NORMAL soldering operations using
propane-butane gas. DO NOT USE OXYGEN-ACETYLENE. When soldering connections, do not solder within
4” of valve port. Do not use excessive heat. Open the stop valves when soldering inlets.
It is recommended that the pipes be flushed clean prior to installation, in order to avoid any future problems.
Ensure that the stop ring is properly installed, see below, otherwise a user could potentially disengage the cartridge
with minimal force to external handle. This would cause the valve to fail, losing control of flow & temperature.
Make sure valve is securely fastened to studs. Be sure to remove trim items, handles, escutcheons and plates before
installation. Wrap carefully and store until finished wall is completed.
Install the valve by positioning the 1/2” shower outlet in the up position. If installing showerhead & hand shower configuration, plumb showerhead from tub port (T) and hand shower from shower port (S). Finished wall must be within
dimensions shown in illustration 2. To test pipe joints, pressurize both hot and cold inlets.
Installing Trim
Thread plastic upper link into finished post. Insert assembled post onto end of diverter stem, then slide finished sleeve
over attached items and screw sleeve into diverter housing. Place coverplate on valve stem while sliding diverter trim
through rubber grommet. Screw on escutcheon trim and mark all-thread nipple where excess needs to be cut off.
(NOTE: For stem to be fully seated into cartridge, all-thread nipple and locking nut must be tightly secured against
retaining plate.) Place handle on stem. Measure excess between escutcheon and handle base. Remove handle and cut
previously measured excess from end of stem. Reinstall handle and tighten set screws. (Refer to Illustrations 2 and 3.)

This valve has an upper temperature limit stop (Item 6), which can allow
desired and safe hot water temperature (recommended maximum is
110°F). This stop may be adjusted once the valve is installed. Before making
this adjustment, run the water with the valve turned to the hot setting. If
the water temperature is too high in this position, then perform the following adjustments:
· Remove the trim (handle, escutcheon and cover).
· Remove the all-thread nipple, retaining screws and retaining plate (Items 1,
2 and 3 respectively).
· Remove the broach (Item 5) and the limit stop (Item 6). Do not remove
the mechanical stop (Item 7). If for any reason the mechanical stop or the
cartridge is removed, the following steps must be performed:
1.Close the valve by turning the cartridge stem clockwise
until it stops, (Do not forcefully rotate).
2. Position the mechanical stop on the cartridge against the stop block as
shown in Illustration 5 and continue with the following steps.
· From the CLOSED position, rotate the cartridge stem counter-clockwise
until the desired temperature is achieved.
· Place the limit stop (Item 6) on the cartridge stem against the stop block
as shown in Illustration 7. Rotate several times to make sure the stop is at
the desired temperature setting.
· Replace the full extension broach, retaining plate and screws, all-thread,
nipple and locking nut. (NOTE: For stem to be fully seated into cartridge,
all-thread nipple and locking nut must be tightly secured against retaining
plate.)

This valve has an upper temperature limit stop , which can allow desired and safe hot water temperature
(recommended maximum is 110°F). This stop may be adjusted once the valve is installed.
Before making this adjustment, run water with the valve turned to the hot setting. If the water temperature

2. Remove the all-thread nipple, (item 7), hex nut (item 8) and stem plate (item 6).
3. Remove the broach stem (item 5) and the limit stop (item 4).
4. Close the valve by turning the cartridge stem clockwise until it stops, (Illustration 4).
5. From the CLOSED position, rotate the cartridge stem counter-clockwise until the desired temperature is
achieved.(Illustration 5).
6. Place the limit stop (item 4) on the cartridge stem against the stop block (Illustration 6). Rotate several
times to make sure the stop is at the desired temperature setting.
7. Install the broach stem (item 5), stem plate (item 6), all thread nipple (item 7) and hex nut
(item8).(NOTE : For broach stem to be fully seated onto cartridge, the all thread nipple (item 7) and hex
nut (item 8) must be tightly secured against the retaining plate).
