S Thermostatic Valve Trim with Volume Control, Diverter and Metal Lever Handles Less Valve
I wanted to have a stationary showerhead and also a handheld shower, and the ability to run one or the other or both. This, along with the Hansgrohe 01850 3/4" iBox Universal Plus Rough In Valve with Service Stop, allows me to do that. It works exactly as I planned, and so simply. I wouldn't say it changed my life - but it definitely changed my shower habits. I can now turn the water on and off so simply that I turn it off often during the shower when I'm not specifically using any water. Oh, and I should mention it is very easy to turn both handles. The top has definite stops at each A, B, and A/B setting. The bottom is smooth and stays put once you stop turning.

Looks beautiful and works fine, but disappointed to discover that coverplate is chrome covered PLASTIC which is never mentioned in specifications. This is true of several Hansgrohe products, so check. I am leary of appearance in the long term in case cleaning materials accidently are used on it. Should have read reviews before purchase.

Our friends recommended Build.com to us and said they had the best prices. They were soooo right. I've never ordered from Build.com before so I thought I would give it a try. It was easy and fast and the prices were excellent. The products arrived in Blaine and we picked it up and had to pay a bit in duty (gst and pst) but it was still a bargain. The Hansgrohe products are excellent. My contactor recommended them as well and he's seen alot. We love this thermostatic valve because you can regulate the temperature to what you prefer and we got the diverter so we have the option of using the hand shower as oppose to the rain shower. LOVE IT!

Good design but plastic
The design is very nice. I gave 2 stars because there is too much plastic going on here. I saw other brands and all the pieces were in solid brass, or metal, which makes a HUGE difference. Too bad Hansgrohe decide to go cheap.
