Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too easy to SCOLD! Pretty, however, this thing can scold you or child or elder with a bump to the volume or temp by accident. Took me 5 minutes to understand and not push wrong direction thinking it did something to help. NOT for small kids or elderly, too easy to scold.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from T17097RB This faucet looks great HOWEVER the circular plate on the front that determines flow of water or temperature (not sure which) pops off every time we use it. We notice it is plastic. Not happy, been on hold for 20 minutes trying to get someone to help us with no response.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delta Cassidy shower Trim Issue Good looking trim. It had a fitment issue with thermostatic lever. It will not snap flush to the geared piece.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from We have had to repair it for drips twice within 18 months. We picked this because we wanted a tub/shower device that would control the volume as well as the temperature. It is pretty, but this is the second time in fewer than 18 months since we had it installed that we have had to repair the valve or the valve seals and springs due to dripping from the tub faucet. That is a lot of repairs for something so expensive. Delta's customer service people have been excellent in helping us figure out how to repair it--knowledgeable, kind, and quick to answer to the phone. Their how-to videos are good too. their warranty has been great. But I would rather have a valve that didn't drip so often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this Delta to replace a builder grade shower control and love getting in the shower and not having to adjust the temperature of the water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the functionality and finish This type of trim allows the user to select the temperature separate from the volume of water...heat and volume are separate. This function is great if a lower volume is desired while being able to control temperature. It is also streamlined into a single stem with two integrated handles. Champagne Bronze finish is gorgeous.

Is the stainless steel finish close in appearance to brushed nickel (which is NOT available) or brighter?

Asked by: Don C
Thank you for your question, Don C! Our Stainless Steel finish on the Delta Cassidy Valve Trim T17097-SS model is a very close match to brushed nickel. Best regards, Tanya

Will all those parts working together?

I am remodeling my bathroom. I would like to have an overhead shower plus a hand shower with slide bar. I have picked out following parts and would like to know whether they will work together and whether I am missing anything. T17097-SS valve trim, R11000 diverter rough, 50560-SS wall elbow, 51708-SS slide bar hand shower, U4993-SS shower arm and flange. Any recommendation for shower head? I would like something with good water volume going through it.
Asked by: June
Hi June, Thank you for your question. You will need an R10000-UNBXHF rough to go with your T17097-SS trim. You have the R11000 diverter rough and need the matching diverter trim T11897-SSLHP, plus the handle H597SS. The rest of your items are correct. Our showerheads that feature the H2O Kinetic would be a good choice for your shower. Thanks, Dave

What is the difference between the T17097-ss Trim and the T17T097-ss other than the price?

Asked by: Kathleen
Hi Kathleen, Thank you for your question. The difference in the T17097 and the T17T097 is the cartridge that is inside. The T17T cartridge comes with a thermostatic cartridge that is ceramic. It withstands harsher water conditions compared to the T17097 that contains a cartridge with silicone based seats and springs that seal the valve body. They both function the same. Thanks, Alexis

What is the MultiChoice Universal rough? And why do I need to purchase it separately?

I am not understanding what it is and what is the difference between with and without. And can you explain the difference between the 17 and the 17T?
Asked by: Sue
Hi Sue, Thank you for your questions. The T17097-PN is the trim that you see on the outside of the wall and the cartridge for the valve body. The R10000 is the Multichoice universal rough in valve, the part that gets plumbed into the wall. You must have both pieces for a complete faucet. The T17 has a dual function pressure balance cartridge that allows you to control temperature and volume on your faucet. The T17T has a dual function thermostatic cartridge to control temperature and volume. The T17T has a higher flow rate and is not affected by the seasonal temperature of the water coming into the faucet. Thanks, Dave

Extension for shower

We just built a new shower. The plumber installed the 17097. Then our tile man did his thing. The shower is now ready for the outside of the faucet to be installed. But the thing that comes out of the wall is too short to work. We cannot chip the new tile out, it would ruin the shower. Is there an an extension we can attach to the whatever it is called that comes out of the wall to attach the rest of the shower faucet to? Help! Thanks Colleen
Asked by: Colleen
Hi Colleen, I am sorry to hear about the trouble that you are having with your faucet and I would be happy to help. Unfortunately, we do not manufacture extensions for our showers. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.

Hi, Tiffanie! Thank you for your question. We would recommend a diverter tub spout. The diverter tub spout in the Cassidy collection is RP72565. Here is a link to the diverter tub spout: Best Regards, Rosanna

I have a T17097-CZ . I want to adjust the water temp. How do I get the knob off to adjust the water temp.

Asked by: ponycars
Hi, ponycars! Thank you for your question. The temperature knob on the Delta T17097-CZ shower trim kit pulls straight off by hand to remove. Best Regards, Rosanna

The difference in the ceramic cartridge T17T vs the silicone cartridge T17, how does the difference impact the life performance of the unit?

Will the silicone version require replacement or repair after a period of time? Is there a warranty on the silicone vs. the ceramic cartridge? Thanks!
Asked by: Chris
Hi Chris, Thank you for your question. Both 17 and 17T units are covered under our Lifetime Warranty on parts and finish. While the TempAssure cartridge of the 17T series should last longer, both Monitor and TempAssure models are designed to last. Thanks, Jon
