    More questions...

    1.) I went to the Delta site and tried to find mention of the Delta 1700 series thermostatic valve with the volume control. Is that what they are now calling TempAssure? If not, what should I be looking for on the site?

    2.) Is there anything special that needs to be done to use a thermostatic valve vs. the traditional valve I have with my current Moen shower setup?

    3.) Is there any reason I couldn't use a Zoe Captains Quarters shower head system with a Delta thermostatic valve and trim?

    Delta now makes a single rough in valve, called the R10000. With that valve, you can select trim/cartridge sets in 3 types:

    1300 single handle pressure balanced
    1700 pressure balanced with separate volume and temp levers
    17T thermostatic
