Pressure Balance Monitor 17 Series Shower Trim from the Dryden Collection with Volume Control
Beware - most of this shower trim kit is plastic
I ordered this shower trim kit without seeing it in person. I wish I had. Even though everywhere I have looked the description says brass - it is not. The hot and cold lever is brass, the plate that attaches to the shower wall with hot and cold written on it is some kind of finished tin and the valve that fits into your plumbing is metal. The rest plastic. The shower head is this big, square, hollow piece of plastic. The pressure control lever - plastic. So disappointing. I chose the venetian bronze finish so I'm not sure if the chrome finishes will actually be all metal. This irritates me as no description I have read anywhere online says 1/2 of the trim kit is plastic. I have used Delta in 3 bathrooms in my house and this is the first time I have gotten such inferior quality. This is a pretty expensive price to pay for plastic. Unfortunately I will probably keep it because of the valve that was plumbed into our shower locks me into Delta and the other shower trim kits by Delta that I was interested in are plastic as well. Overall, pretty disappointed with this fixture.

My plumber had a very difficult time with this. The box was opened when we got it and parts were missing. It seemed as thought the faucet was taken apart. I don't know if that is Delta's fault of FaucetDirect??? Directions were terrible. FaucetDirect did deal very quickly with replacing the missing part and they referred us to Delta for the installation information. It is now installed and seems to be working fine.
The faucet looks great and hopefully it will have a long life.

Looks great and works great. Love how you adjust the temperature and amount of water with different handles.
