About the Manufacturer

Kohler's history begins in 1873, with the first of many bold business moves. Despite a climate of financial panic and the start of a five-year economic depression, 29-year-old Austrian immigrant John Michael Kohler purchased the Sheboygan Union Iron and Steel Foundry.

The firm had a successful start producing cast iron and steel implements for farmers, castings for the city's furniture factories, and ornamental iron pieces that included cemetery crosses, urns and settees. A key turning point came in 1883 when John Michael seized upon another bold idea to improve his customers' quality of life. By applying baked enamel coating to a Kohler horse trough/hog scalder, he had created the Kohler Co.'s first bathtub. Kohler was now in the plumbing business.

Like John Michael, many of the early employees were immigrants. Steeped in a heritage of European craftsmanship, they were eager to achieve success in their new country. Their dedication to excellence helped to forge one of the oldest and largest privately-held companies in the United States.

The value of the Arts/Industry program to the factory can be assessed from both a personal and business standpoint. For some, the experience of meeting artists from all over the world is the most important aspect. For others, it is the bottom line. Over the years, design ideas generated by artists have been translated into innovative new products offered by the company.

Kohler Co. has long encouraged an ongoing dialogue with the art community by opening the doors of its pottery and iron foundry to internationally recognized artists. In a program administered by the John Michael Kohler Arts Center , artists work side by side with Kohler associates during long-term residencies, utilizing industrial technology on projects of their own choosing. The resulting free exchange of techniques and ideas has opened whole new avenues of creative expression for the artists.

Works Great

Trendymad from Torrance, CA– Verified Buyer

I had to re order twice, I guess I didnt check that certain valves go with certain featurea, so always check with wayfair CS or Kohler website when it doubt. My plumber had no trouble installing it, he says he had worked with this product before and its easy and durable too. I take his word for it. I only go Kohler due to lifetime warranty anyway. Pressure from my shower is great.

This piece is needed for almost all the Kohler trim kits!

cynthia from Chelmsford, MA– Verified Buyer

Works perfectly with the trim kit we chose. So glad Wayfair carries it. I'm sure my plumber would have charged me way more for it!

high quality for inexpensive price tag

Artez Dalgin from North Bergen, NJ– Verified Buyer

Very high quality, I hope it will last for years to come. One thing to pay attention is to use the larger hole in the bottom(bathtub faucet conection) if you are connecting multiple showerheads/sprays in a shower system. This way you will have the necessary water pressure for multiple water outlets.
Wayfair sent an incorrect valve but they replaced it with the correct one very fast and the return of the incorrect one was very conveniently handled.

Use for Parts

Homeowner from Boston, MA– Verified Buyer– Top 50 Reviewer

We have a shower that was installed 9 years ago that the valve started leaking on, apparently Kohler has not changed the design at all because we purchased this and were able to replace the "innards" of our existing valve with the "innards" of this new one and it works perfectly! In general we're pretty happy with the price/reliability of Kohler. 9 years of heavy use for a valve before it started to fail seems pretty good.
