Tarnishes to look like Galvanized Steel
After about 3 years, I notice that the chrome finish on everything is severely tarnished. Looks almost like galvanized steel. This should be covered under warranty, but I am already regretting pursing that. I spent over an hour and a half on hold, only to be told I need to talk to the tub+shower people (I did correctly select that option), who have gone for the day (probably why I got dumped onto her). I also submitted an online submission while waiting for that hour and a half. And I searched online reports and found that Delta seems to have a corporate policy of ignoring those, which is why I stuck it out and waited for the phone to pick up. BTW, the online warranty form gives you 3 photos and 250 characters to make your case. Really! Other than that, it's OK. But I would not recommend it or buy it again (I bought two, so my 2x tub+showers could match) due to the poor finish durability and horrendous warranty customer service. I guess I could always paint it. Pics attached. The third one is what the other one I bought (at the same time) looks like after I just finished installing it in the other bathroom. Looks great now, and made me realize something is seriously wrong with the other one.

Venetian bronze finish does not hold up well
The shower valve trim is a little over 5 years old and started to deteriorate after a couple years. The diverted valve has held up just fine. See pics. The valve itself is great, ability to control temperature and volume independently is a really nice feature.

Not bad, but it has an odor. In another review I wrote I called this a Cassidy model and I'm thinking now I was wrong (based on what Home Depot is showing as "also purchased." Regardless, this control handle isn't as good as a previous Delta I had installed maybe ten years ago. This center temp control is a bit cheap-o feeling and look (it doesn't sit square, but not a deal breaker). There also isn't much "play" in the temp control - perhaps because we don't run our water heater very hot. So it goes from fully hot to "too cool" with just a slight turn of the center handle. Worst, is that this control -- like a Delta Cassidy sink faucet we bought puts out a strong odor of grease or metallic, especially when hot water is run. It's been installed about a month now (Nov 2018) - the contractor says smell will dissipate, but I'm still waiting. I'm "recommending" this product based on the hope the smell will go away. (I'll try to remember to update if it does clear up.)

love this!
I love the ability to control the temperature the temperature and water flow separately. The install was fast and easy. It is easy to turn on and off.

Another great Delta product
The American Standard Ovation kit basin is very sturdy with wood and fiberglass support on the bottom. However, the sides were a bit flimsy and thin, but once installed the sides were well supported by the wall studs so not a big issue. We also installed Delta Linden Monitor 17 valve (T17094) and the Delta Diverter (T11894) for the handheld shower. The Handheld Shower Elbow (50560) has a nice aesthetic and goes well with the Delta parts. We reused existing shower head and handheld shower. In all, this new walk-in shower is a great addition and really helps my 90 yr old mother at bath time.
