Hi all!

I need to replace a tub/shower faucet in a building with very high hot water temps (145 degrees). Dialing down the temp is not an option (the boss says so!). I'm looking at an American Standard model 2043 thermostatic unit and would like any feedback you might have concerning that model or another model faucet you are familliar with and would recommend. Many people use this shower and I don't want anyone parboiled.

Thanx - Da Roach

You could not pay me enough to install an American Standard, OR Kohler product. IF push somes to shove Id install the AS rather then the kohler

PERSONALLY I would not settle for just a pressure balance Or just a temperature balance type.

The Temperature balance type does not allow for pressure fluctuations and the pressure balance does not allow for drastic temperature changes

Powers, Delta, and some other brands make decent shower body's T&P type.

The problem with a temperature only type is the element can become coated with mineral deposits and not give an accurate reading.

The pressure type does not take seasonal temperature changes into account

Powers had a great product line that you should look into prior to making a decision you may regret later on.

Delta has a great warrantee program that I am very impressed with.
