troutslayer: when you got the shower open were the connections threaded or crimped pex fittings?

spepi: my thinking was two check valves should equal no flow either direction when shut off at the shower head, should be like having the second shut off as depicted in the video.

Agree, what I got out of that video is to put the check valve on the cold water inlet to the shower.

I didn't get that.

After he installed the check valve, he still had the issue. It wasn't until he put the cutoff that his problem was solved.

That leads me to believe that it is the flow from the anti scald feature (dribble) filling the hose with hot or cold water. Once I get my valve I'll know for sure.

I replaced our hand held with an Oxygenic hand held. When you turn this off, a small trickle of hot water drips.. I have taken showers in snowstorms and never had any "cold starts". And I always take a Navy shower... (actually learned on board ship) . Much easier than putting check valves etc.. plus...check valve does nothing about the water in the line, cooling off due to low temps. JMHO

So we all know this is going to happen. How about, just point the shower head at the floor of the shower when you turn the water back on!

Cost of fix $0
Effort required 0
Water wasted 3 to 4 Oz

Camco 23303 check valve and KES K1140B (both around $10/ea). I purchased from Ebay cuz they had free shipping. Amazon had free shipping with minimum $49 purchase.

In the video, seems like he put the check valve on the hot input. I know how to get out of the way but cold is not the problem, it's the momentary flash of hot that I'm looking for a fix.

Pex fitting crimped onto a female threaded fitting that connects to the male threaded faucet fitting. The check-valve will go between the two threaded fittings. Looks "eazy-peazy"

That's my problem as well. So, the check valve goes on the cold...right? Cuz you want to keep the hot water from infiltrating the cold water line.

I ordered my valve shut off today. I really dont think I can access the line in to add a check valve. Should have it Thursday.
