    I have Delta MultiChoice Universal Tub and Shower Valve Body Rough-In Kit installed. What I need now are valve/cartridge, trim and shower head. Am I right? How do I know the delta product boxes in the store only contain what I need but not more/less?

    Basically I am confused by those names. Does valve mean cartridge? Does valve include the valve body rough-in? Does trim include the handle and the head?

    And I prefer to have one handle to control volume and temperature. My old shower can adjust the volume by push or pull the handle and adjust the temperature by turn left or right. A HD worker told me in the newer shower kit the temperature is controlled by a screw which need to remove the cover and adjust it. when you turn the handle, it will adjust the volume. I don't like it. Does the older style still exist?

    Do like I do, open the box in the store and inspect the contents.
