Leland Monitor® 17 Series Shower Trim
Not as expected
I thought this valve trim and cartridge combo had separate flow and temperature control. Not so. You have to have the flow control valve fully open in order to get your hot water at the setting you want. If you try to decrease the flow the water gets colder. Seems like it works like any other single handle valve. I called Delta customer service and they said that was how it is supposed to operate as a safety feature. I mentioned it made it more dangerous since I would have to increase the temperature at anything other than full flow and if I then increased flow I would get much hotter water. So, you do have a separate temperature control handle but you really can't adjust flow separately and maintain your desired temperature.
