Double Handle Monitor 17 Shower Valve Trim with Volume Control and Single Function Showerhead from the Lahara Collection
replaced similar model after 15 years
Frankly, I didn't realize the package came with a new cartridge ($45 by itself) which made this price an excellent value. After 15 years we wanted to upgrade the builder Delta plastic knob with something more attractive. By staying with Delta and seperate temp/volume control the process was very simple. Although the cartridge works the same, it is shorter so the whole unit fits closer to the wall. Reusing the prior cartridge was not an option. The only issue was getting the old brass retainer off.
Looks much nicer, works great and whole process took less than an hour. Everything you need is in the box. This model is for shower units with seperate temp/volume controls.

Delta T17238 Lahara Shower Trim Package
Great trim package! The online package price was fare and prompt shipping. The best feature the package included all necessary parts and all parts and components fit well together. Could not price compare in my area since none of the consumer suppliers (Lowes/Home Depot/Menards) stock this package. We both like the wider shower head stream. The cartridge adjustment took a while because the cold/hot flows were reversed. Rotated the cartridge a number of times and finally the cold/hot flows were correct. The temp level adjustable stop is a good idea. No details in the instructions how to properly install the temp control handle. Each install attempt the handle was cocked. After a number of attempts the handle installed correctly. I would definitely order from faucetdirect.com!

My plumber kept trying to talk me into getting this series for our new shower. I finally succumbed to his suggestion, mostly because I was able to by it here at a good price. I love the thing! You set your temperature the way you like it, turn the shower on day after day and it is ready to go the way you like it. I haven't tested showering and flushing at the same time to see how the water temp stays consistent though.

After several hours of frustrating browsing and talking with employees at the box stores who were sure they knew what I was talking about, it was refreshing to find this product online with the two handles, one of which lets you preset the temperature to keep for future showers. Great product. Thanks!!

I love Delta products but this product was complicated to install because it required completely removing the old materials and install the new. I will have to return it.

delta shower fixture
this lahara shower fixture was reccomended by our vendor during our bathroom remodel - has leaked since day 1 - the overall product is not really very well thought out after you have it installed and using it - after consulting our vendor a+ , for them they had us call delta 800 # ,new cartridge supposed to be on the way? not very customer friendly rep - water comes out when you turn the handle - thats all i'll say - go elsewhere

Purchased this for a new bathroom we put into our basement, haven't used it yet but love the look. Contractor was shocked at the pricing I was able to get from Faucet Direct vs. the plumber, at least half the cost! I was able to upgrade to the 17 series and still save money!
Shipping was fast and accurate, would highly recommend!

Nice Looking, Good Quality for the money
We purchased this faucet & valve for an outdoor shower. It feels sturdy & hopefully will have a durable finish for our harsh summers here in Florida. We know that replacement parts are easily obtainable for Delta as we have had Delta products in the past. We have enjoyed so far for the short time we have used.

Very nice. Love the fact you can leave your setting and turn the shower on each time to the right temperature. Nice shower head as well. Nice stream though I'm sure it is a low flow variety.
