Comfort series additional/replacement valve for Grundfos UP15-10SU7P/TLC (595916) Comfort System. The Grundfos Comfort Valve is installed under the sink at the fixture furthest from the water heater.
Good price, good shipping, easy install
When we remodeled, we had one valve installed along with the pump. The valve failed after about 3.5 years. (If you didn't save the manual, the Grundfos web site has it, so you can test if you have a valve or a pump problem.) I ordered 2 valves, and I replaced the one in the master bath in about 15 minutes. I then installed a new one in our 1st floor powder room in probably 30 minutes. Just remember to keep track of what hoses go to which connections. Easy ordering and shipping from PexUniverse.com at a good price. If the product lasted longer, I'd give it a fifth star.
Grundfos Comfort Valve, 595926
Right product at the best price. These things need to be replaced periodically so price is important.
We had a failure in the original valve and locally it was going to cost $70 or more. Pex delivered the part [...] for about half of that. The valve works as advertised and I recommend Pex to anyone who needs their products. FYI, this valve dramatically shortens the time it takes to get hot water to any faucet in the house. A great money saver.
I had a plumber come out and gave me an estimate of $278, I replaced it for [$], it took me 20 minutes

My original valve lasted about 4 years. I don't know the internal mechanics of the valve, but I suppose its lifetime is dependent upon the hardness of your water.
I have the pump circulating hot water to a distant bathroom. I need another valve to do the same to the nearby kitchen. Should be no problem, right?
