That is an excellent choice!
I want to add a thermostatic temperature control to our soon to be remodeled bathroom. Such as this one:
My question is are some brands better or do they all perform about the same. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
The valve needed is available with or without stops? Which should I get?
Stops allow you to work on the faucet without turning the water off elsewhere. That's a good thing in my book. Some people will say that by the time you need them, they may not work, but I ask what if they do? They can save some issues down the road so they are certainly worth considering in my opinion.
I consider myself an accomplished DIY'er. I don't know everything but help where I can. I'm not a pro, but like to think I'm professional.
The question is, When is the last time you removed the trim plate to service a Delta faucet? I don't think I ever have, so even if it had integral stops, I would not have seen or used them.
No, The Delta is a good unit, because it uses the Hansgrohe thermostatic element which is high quality and high flow.
I think its perfect! but how is the price? Heard something good about it but not sure on the price.
