It shuts the water off like the original factory shower head did which is what I wanted, so yes, it does make a difference.

My wife and I lifted and mixed in a wheelbarrow. We looked into having a truck come, but this was the cheaper route.

A shutoff that doesn't dribble was hard to find, but we have been using the Positive Shower Shut-Off on this page in case anyone else is looking too.

No issues for us in our current or last rig with water temperature, and I like not wasting water between soaping and rinsing. These go in between the hose and shower head, so you can use them with any head you like.

I hear you and my hat is off to you and your wife. In my younger years, I would have done the same, but now, we just save our money to pay to have it done or do without. It's hell gettin' old, sure found out it's not for the timid.

Got a buddy, retire Army LtCol that always says nothing good happens to the body after 50. I am two years away and am starting to get nervous.

It's pretty bad when you know to the inch where every rest stop is and how much beverage can be consumed between them!

Well at least installed today. . .

I wanted to flip the stereo cabinet face and open the wasted space for storage. The cheap rails/stiles were torn to pieces behind the stereo by the factory installers. I ended up making a new cabinet face and boxing in the new open storage space.

Started like this:

Original cabinet without the stereo:

Ended up like this:
