Cassidy MultiChoice® 17 Series Valve Trim
Very elegant and easy to operate
Love the look and easy cleaning although it gets water spots but wipes out easily. Love the two handle and the ease of switching to hot and cold and controlling the flow water with a different handle. I use Delta in all my bathrooms and the sink faucets for 10 years still shining so I trust Delta product and will use them.

One of our best decisions!
I love that the preferred water temperature is always set and I simply choose the strength of the spray. We are water consumption conscious and, along with one of the Speakman shower heads, have the perfect low flow, generous coverage with the ease of always having the right temperature within a couple of minutes.

Not a true dual temperature control
I bought the entire Cassidy line for my new bathroom. I have 2 of these in my master shower. The reason I paid extra money for the dual temperature control is because I wanted to be able to turn down the water pressure when I really wasn't using the water like when washing hair, or my kids are playing with water from the other shower head while I'm using one full blast, etc., and still keep my hot shower temperature I like. This does NOT do this. When you turn down the water to a low volume, the temperature turns cold and not usable for a shower! I contacted Delta about this and they are sending me a part to connect in between my shower pipe and my shower head and it has a little valve where I'll be able to adjust the volume of water up there and not need to adjust it actually on this handle. So I'm really at a loss as what the purpose is to have the separate temperature control. I suppose it would be possible to have the volume of water on high and turn the temperature to freezing cold. I have no need to ever do this, not even for cleaning the shower. I probably won't even use the part they are sending me because it will lower my shower head by the length of the part, probably an inch and a half and my husband already wishes the shower head were higher. (When determining the height of the shower pipe, we didn't consider the shower pipe the head attaches to usually hangs down a few inches, lowering the shower head. We did add a goose neck one though to raise it back up.) The stainless finish actually stains much like a stainless steel appliance does with water marks. On a side note.... Bronze finish fixtures get damaged in about 6 months from my experience on other fixtures, including Delta. It's just a very thin coat of paint that is easily damaged by cleaners and the bronze also turns green from a reaction with (city) water over time. I've never heard of this problem with the brushed nickel fixtures, which is the only thing I'll consider going forward.
