kohler DTV vs Moen Io Digital
I am really conflicted about the choice between a Kohler or Moen digital valve for my shower. The 1-person shower (42 x 72) will have a hand shower, 3 body sprays, a 4 tile rain head and 1 shower head. I've spoken in-depth with both companies. The big pluses for the Moen are the wireless remote and the cost. I want to believe that four 1/2" output ports will drive my shower nicely. I will feed the bath with 1" for both cold and hot. The hot will be on a continuous circulator.
The negatives for the Kohler are the price for the (wireline only) controllers - which are outrageous for a 5+ year old technology. All things considered the digital valves are about the same price. Kohler offers 6 output ports and higher overall flow rate. I could use the 2 extra ports on the Kohler to fill the tub (via a virtual spout).
I trust both companies will stand behind their products...
Anyone have any experience / insight they'd like to share?
