Double Handle Monitor 17 Valve Trim Only with Volume Control from the Leland Collection
This is a very nice product. Do not choose the satin nickel finish, as it leaves noticeable water spots on the finish. I'm sure it wouldn't be noticeable in the chrome finish.
Unfortunately, we changed all our fixtures, in 2 bathrooms, to the satin nickel. Any time you use the faucet in the sink or the one in the shower, it leaves water spots over the entire surface. I'm sure if you wiped it off after every use (which is not possible, especially with toddler twins!) it would be fine. However, I wish I had bought the chrome ones!

The rough was installed, and the handiman reinstalled this part of the fixture four times thinking he was doing it wrong, finally after I called the Delta help hotline we figured out that the springs were missing and hadn't been included in the packaging.
Thankfully, Delta was honorable and shipped me those silly little springs...but I had to wait two more weeks to finish the faucet...one week for Delta and another week to get my handiman back out to the house.
Even with the springs in place, he still had to go consult someone about putting this together (the plastic temperature handle seems very flimsy to me and he had a heck of a time getting it all to work like it's suppose to). As is now, the temp valve seems to be on backwards (blue side really makes hot, and red side makes cold)...but at this point, I'll take what I can get...function over form.

Delta Monitor Valve with Volume Control
Excellent control of flow volume and temperature during shower. Flushing a toilet or using water in another area of the house does decrease the water pressure slightly, but NOT the temperature of the flow. No more scalding or freezing during a shower, also much safer than old two-faucet controllers. Looks good to and easy to use.
