*Temptrol series includes Allura®, Olde Braintree Brass®, Temptrol, Temptrol Deluxe and Temptrol II
shower and tub/shower systems.
IMPORTANT: After completion of installation step 4, follow these instructions to set
the Temptrol II Limit Stop Screw. This valve is equipped with a limit stop screw to be
used to limit valve handle from being turned to excessively hot water discharge temperatures. To adjust, remove dome cover, open valve to maximum desired temperature and turn in limit stop screw until it seats.
WARNING: Failure to adjust the limit stop screw properly may result
in serious scalding.
WARNING: This shower system may not protect the user from scalding when there is a failure of other temperature controlling
devices elsewhere in the plumbing system.
For ADA compliance (Americans with Disabilities Act) consult ADAAG or your state
regulations for proper product choice and mounting locations.
Please read all instructions carefully before starting
installation. Save this manual for future reference.

Tools required for installation of this product
are: Phillips screw driver, tubing cutter,
teflon tape, soldering equipment, adjustable
wrench and channel-lock pliers.
1. Install piping and fittings with valve body
as shown in Figure 2 or 3. IMPORTANT:
Valve rough-in is 2-3/8” +/- 1/2”
from CENTERLINE OF SUPPLIES TO
FACE OF FINISH WALL. Install so that
line indicated on rough-in plaster shield
(T-176) on valve is flush with finish wall
as shown in Figure 1 (See Figure 5 for
fiberglass wall installation).

Pipe shower head from outlet marked
“S” and to tub spout from outlet marked
“T”. The valve in this system has a
built-in choke for use with a diverter
spout. The built-in choke is designed so
that it cannot be subject to any back
pressure, other than is imposed by the
spout supplied with this package. DO
NOT SUBSTITUTE OTHER OUTLET
ACCESSORIES FOR THE TUB SPOUT
(SUCH AS HOSE AND SPRAY,
SHOWER HEAD, BODY SPRAY,
LEDGE SPOUTS, ETC.) OR ANY PIPE
ADAPTER OR ADDITIONAL FITTINGS
(SUCH AS PEX, ETC.) THAT CAN
CAUSE BACK PRESSURE THROUGH
THE VALVE. Install HOT on left and
COLD on right according to valve
markings.

Tub only System: Pipe tub spout from
outlet marked “T”. Install either the
included copper sweat or 1/2”-14 NPT
plug (pipe sealer required) into the outlet
marked “S” (figure 3A).
2. When finishing tile wall PULL OFF
ENTIRE PROTECTIVE PLASTER SHIELD
(T-176). If finish wall obstructs removal
of plaster shield, break off outer edge
along perforations (if necessary, carefully
use sharp blade to facilitate removal).
After plaster shield is removed FILL AREA
AROUND VALVE BODY WITH GROUT OR

3. TURN ON HOT AND COLD SUPPLIES,
valve will not operate unless both hot
and cold water are turned on.
4. Unscrew dome cover (T-19/20) and
tighten packing nut (T-17) for positive
frictional resistance to handle turn
throughout adjustment cycle and at shutoff position. Check valve cap, packing
nut, diverter spindle o-ring and all valve,
pipe and fitting connections for leaks.
5. SET LIMIT STOP SCREW AS DIRECTED
AFTER “IMPORTANT” IN BOLD TYPE ON
PAGE ONE. Reattach dome cover back
onto packing nut.
6. Mount gasket (T-27B), T3-27B onto back
of escutcheon with opening at bottom as
shown in Figure 4. The use of this gasket
should not preclude sealing valve body in
wall as directed in installation instruction
step #2.
7. ALLOW VALVE TO RUN IN WARM

Install shower arm, flange and shower
head. See Figures 2 and 3.
9. Do not install positive shut-off devices
on the outlet of this valve or devices that
do not allow the valve to flow at least 1
GPM at 50 psi inlet pressure. EXCEPTION:
If a self-closing or slow-closing valve is
installed on the outlet, the supplies of the
valve must be equipped with checks to
eliminate hot to cold by-pass in the event
the valve’s handle is not turned to off after
use. Contact your factory representative
or Symmons directly for information on
available checks.

FIBERGLASS WALL INSTALLATION
When installing Temptrol® II series valves
in fiberglass or panel walls and it is
desired to sandwich wall between valve
body and escutcheon, cut hole in wall
as shown in Figure 5 and mount valve
with T-177 wall mounting flange from
rear. Note: It is always recommended
to secure valve piping to rough
construction and not depend on
fiberglass wall for valve mounting
security. On panel walls over 1” thick,
install in conventional manner.

BACK TO BACK INSTALLATION
To simplify piping on back to back installations use one standard valve (hot on left, cold on right) and one with reverse
coring (hot on right, cold on left) as shown in Figure 6 and 7.
Order reverse core valve by adding the suffix REV-X after
the plate number. (e.g. BP-56-2-REV-X Temptrol® II tub and
shower unit with reverse coring.)

OPERATION OF VALVE
The main handle of a Temptrol® II series valve is for control
of temperature only. From the OFF position, the handle is
turned counter-clockwise through a minimum cold position,
through a warm and hot position for a maximum turn of
approximately one revolution. This allows for wide range of
temperature adjustments to suit the requirements of any user.

CARE AND CLEANING
The lustrous finish on your Temptrol II series valve should be
treated with care. It can be readily damaged by improper
handling or abusive treatment. To clean the finish wipe gently
with a soft damp cloth and blot dry with a soft towel. Use
only a mild soap solution if required. DO NOT USE ABRASIVE CLEANERS. Use of polish, abrasive cleaners, solvents or acid cleaners will damage
the finish and VOID the Symmons warranty.

CHART
Problem
Cause
Solution (Follow service instructions)
Valve will not pass water.
Hot and cold water not turned on.
Turn on both supplies. Valve will not operate
unless both HOT and COLD water pressure is
turned on.
Valve leaks when shut off.
Hot and cold washers are worn, or foreign
matter (solder, chips, etc.) are between washers
and seat surfaces
Replace Hot and Cold washers, inspect top
surface on hot and cold seats and replace if
necessary.
Temperature control handle is turned from
cold to hot (or hot back to cold) and volume
from spout or head is not constant.
Pressure balancing piston housed in spindle
assembly is blocked from free movement by
foreign matter.
With valve open half way, remove handle and
tap spindle with plastic hammer. If problem
not solved, remove spindle assembly completely and tap handle against solid object to
free piston. Soaking in household vinegar will
help free foreign matter.
Valve delivers sufficient quantity of cold, but
little hot, or the reverse of this.
Same as above
Same as above
Temperature varies without moving handle.
Same as above
Same as above
Valve delivery temperature reduces gradually
during use; must be turned on to hotter positions to maintain constant temperature.
Overdraw on hot water supply, i.e., running
out of hot water.
Reduce maximum flow by using volume
control adjustment on valve or shower head.
This will allow longer period of use before
overdrawing hot water supply.
Valve delivers hot water when initially opened
and water turns colder when the handle is
rotated in a counter-clockwise direction.
Valve is piped incorrectly, i.e., the hot supply is
piped to the cold inlet to the valve and the cold
supply is piped to the hot inlet of the valve.
If piping is accessible, correct piping connections to the valve. If piping is not accessible,
contact factory to order a reverse seat and
tool (T-108 KIT). Older installations may require
replacement of the hot seat (T-1) as well
In tub/shower valves, when diverter is set in
shower position a trickle of water runs from
tub spout.
A design function of this valve is to allow
a trickle of water from the tub spout when
diverter is set for shower position, This trickle of
water is necessary to ensure safe operation in
that the valve will be shut off at main handle
and NOT with diverter handle.
