comment
" ...  The metallurgy and dimensions are sloppy, too tight on the hex base for the wrench and threads on the opposite (male) end. ... This is the result of poor quality molds and casting, you have to crank it down forcefully to get it to seat. ... Even with extra Teflon tape and a very tight seating using 2 wrenches, it still forms a drop of water at the joint.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The valve was jammed from the beginning, and when trying to loosen it up the knob broke off revealing a minisule poorly designed connection.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I also tightened the tiny screw on the adjustment lever (you'll need a 2mm Hex key) just in case and then put everything to the test. ... lowering the pressure worked but depending on what its connected to will change the flow pattern due to how the cartridge is shaped while closing until about 75% closed where it is a nice straight lower flow.  ...  "
