Kohler Laminar wall mount spout projection
Posted by Sandra Linn on July 15, 2003 at 09:19:37:
We have installed a Kohler Laminar wall mount spout using 3/4" pipe and valve. Our tub edge is about 15" out from this wall. We are using the .95 orifice. In speaking to several technical people at Kohler, we can get a projection of water from this spout past this dimension with standard psi (ours is 60). Our plumber never tested the flow rate at this outlet. In two other parts of the house the flow rate seems to be about 4-5 gal. per minute. We are only getting a 6 1/2 inch to 10 inch projection depending on the cartridge we us (they sent us a replacement cartridge to try). They said changing to a .80 orifice will not make a differance and we should be getting the projection we need. They suggested a possible blockage in the lines, but my contractor said there is no blockage. Do you have any experience with the Laminar spout and have any suggestions, it would be much appreciated! Thank you.
