Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by speck13 Love the square/angular design. The shower head provides good spray volume and pressure. We had another Delta shower trim kit that had the dual temperature and on/off controls and really liked it. Wanted to replace it with a nicer fixture but with this same feature and are very pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by StephRNBSN Love the looks of this!!!
I'm a 38 year old female who often tries the DIY projects. I couldn't wait to get this kit in and install it in my shower. When I opened the box, I was a little disappointed that most of the pieces are plastic. I really thought they would be a heavier metal. However, I did a little research, and found they make them plastic so they "hold up" better. (We will see). With them being plastic, I am disappointed at the cost of the product. There is NO WAY that I feel they are worth the price I spent.
That being said, the shower head itself is a miracle for me. I live in a 3 story townhome, and I've had 3 shower heads in there, and until now, I have had very minimal water pressure. (I always related it to being on the 3rd floor). This has incredible water pressure. And, the rain shower head feels amazing. And, looks beautiful.
The tub spout was a little difficult for me. My old spout did not screw on, so my pipe from the wall did not have "threads" on the end of the pipe ... causing me to learn how to solder two pieces of metal together. After that part was complete, the end product was incredible. It's beautiful and the diverter works awesome.
Now - on to the handle aspect of this kit. TOTALLY DISAPPOINTED. It looks beautiful and amazing, however, that's if it's actually able to be installed on your shower. There were several times I would look at delta products and it says on the box "universal" --- PLEASE BE AWARE - IT'S ONLY UNIVERSAL IF YOU HAVE A DELTA ROUGH IN VALVE. After tearing my old handle apart, I realized it's a Moen rough in valve, therefore my delta handle wouldn't fit. And, since this came in a kit and I already put the shower head and tub spout in place, I couldn't return any of it. I was able to use the escutcheon plate with a generic handle. It is NOT the look I was going for, but it works until I can hire a plumber to come to my house and basically do surgery to my pipes.
Over all ... still LOVE the looks of this ... and would maybe buy it again, but it would be nice to know a few things ahead of time.

Has great pressure and body coverage. Love the adjustable temp/pressure control. Setting the temp can be tricky when installing. Could be made out of something more heavy rather than just plastic but unfortunately that is everything these days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by talon4x4 Wow! What a great value
It was difficult finding something that looked nice, was affordable and had both a volume and temp control and this finally fit the bill. The whole ensemble is very stylish and looks great in our new bathroom. This was my very first DIY bath remodel and I have to say the installation of this unit went quite smoothly. The only negative is that I wish the tub spout was not plastic but I'm sure it won't be a problem. There weren't many manufacturers that had a metal spout and the one's that did were way out of my price range.
