    Default Need advice on Thermostatic shower controls

    I want to add a thermostatic temperature control to our soon to be remodeled bathroom. Such as this one:

    http://www.deltafaucet.com/bath/details/T17T230-NN.html

    My question is are some brands better or do they all perform about the same. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Alan

    Default Thanks Redwood

    The valve needed is available with or without stops? Which should I get?

    Thanks,

    Alan

    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.

    Default stops

    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.

    Default Are they all the same???

    No, The Delta is a good unit, because it uses the Hansgrohe thermostatic element which is high quality and high flow.
