The Temptrol Valve

Learn about our revolutionary pressure-balancing, anti-scald mixing valve technology.

High Quality Pressure Balancing Technology

Every Symmons tub and shower system features the legendary Temptrol® pressure balancing, anti-scald mixing valve. Constructed of solid brass, bronze and stainless steel, and features an adjustable piston that instantly and continually equalizes or “balances” the hot and cold water pressure as demands are made elsewhere in the plumbing system.

Symmons Temptrol® Valve puts an end to Shower Shock* and provides a safe, comfortable shower every time.

*Shower Shock refers to the sudden and dangerous change in temperature that occurs when you’re showering and someone else flushes a toilet or runs hot water elsewhere in the plumbing system.

Symmons S-Lever


Experience the Power of a Better Shower

The S-Lever allows you to control the water volume from a central location on the shower trim. Keeping style in mind, the S-Lever is integrated into the design and is situated with the shower handle for ease of use. This lever can divert water between the shower and tub, or adjust the water volume from the showerhead.


In tub/shower configurations, the S-Lever diverts the water between the shower and the tub.


For shower only configurations, customize your showering experience by adjusting the water volume coming from the showerhead by moving the S-Lever.


Easily re-trim the Temptrol Valve when it is time for a bathroom renovation. The Temptrol® valve is compatible with a wide variety of trims, making design options unlimited. If you start with Symmons, staying with Symmons will save you time and money over the life of your property.
