Does this shower head require a compensating valve to function properly?
My shower currently uses a Kohler system with a mixing valve. The system does not have a compensating valve, however, your specification sheet says this head is for use with an automatic compensating valve rated at 6.90L/Min or less. Thus, I'm wondering if this head will even work correctly with my existing system.
Hi RonP, Thank you for your question. Your Kohler valve should be able to compensate for the RP70171SS showerhead which flows at 2.0 gallons per minute. You can verify your valve's performance with Kohler.

Is this showerhead LEED certified?
The flow rate of LEED certified showerheads should be 1.75 gpm or lower at 80 psi. But, I see some showerheads on the Internet which flow rate are 2.0 gpm, but, they are labeled as LEED certified......
Thank you for your question. The LEED program does not certify specific products. It takes a whole house or business approach to certification. To read about the LEED program in more depth, please click on the below link.
