Porter Monitor® 14 Series Tub & Shower Trim
Flimsy and no water pressure control
I just bought a house with this faucet in the bath. I hate that I can't control the water pressure - it's like the type of faucet found in a cheap motel. The faucets in the sinks are beautiful and work well and the accessories are very pretty (tp holder, towel racks). My water was coming out luke warm at best, I figured there was a scald control and tried to take the handle off, the screw stripped and after I got that out it didn't slip off like in the video, the plastic parts inside broke and now it doesn't work. I agree with other reviews that it is flimsy and wish it had pressure control. I love Delta products and will likely buy a different style to replace this now broken one.

Nice design, poor performance
To be fair, I ‘got what I paid for’ and I made assumptions. I didn’t realize that you cannot control the water pressure on this unit and Delta didn’t make it obvious on the packaging. You can only control the hot cold mix and that is it. Yuck! Also the installation instructions should be a little clearer. Do not forget to put at least eight inch drop pipe on the tub spout or water will flow out of the shower head. Very disappointing to find this out after is installed.

Very low water pressure
You do not want this unit if yall like water pressure; Nicely designed unit but with low pressure, says its 2.0 GPM but unable to git that much in a minute. Contacted delta to see if they offer a diferent cartidge fer this model to git more pressure from shower head. The water pressure is so low comin out that the water looks like like a sprinkler you use in your garden. It does have three setings but the main setin se use is the one with all holes shootin out. But it is a very well designed unit and great apperance.

No pressure and quite loud
Sadly now that the unit is installed I'm less than satisfied with the pressure output of the unit. The pressure is far less than the 80's generation tap set I replaced. Also the water creates much more noise than the old unit. With the unit set for max pressure there's not enough heat and if turning the control slightly left of 90* you get plenty of heat but no pressure. If Delta has a retrofit control unit to remove the heat protection function I trust this would a be the unit I was hoping to get.
