    I'm looking to remodel a shower and am trying to find a PP value that both controls volume and temperature, just like the old days, with a single handle.... I've gotten conflicting answers from PF that the 0x9-010a value operates in a pull up for volume control and turn for hot-cold temp control, but it looks like it's not a pressure sensitive value... The PF folks say that the 0x8 values only do hot-cold and pressure sensing.

    Does anyone know this 0x9 PP value? If it works like I want it, can I install it without the scald protection in Texas?

    Thanks for any help.

    The scale protection thing is a national code, so unless modified by the local authorities, I doubt you can legally install one. Some of the people here are not thrilled with PF, either. I have no personal experience.

    Pressure-balanced valves I'm familiar with do not have a volume control. To get a volume control, you need to step up to a thermostatic valve. But, those are not single handle. From personal expeience, a thermostically controlled valve is a pleasure to use, since you rarely change the temperature setting, and you have only to use one control for volume. Some of them use a small lever for temp and a bigger knob or lever for volume, so you get nearly the same operation.

    Thanks for the info on the thermostatic.... but it several hundred dollars more, and I'm planning on two.. one for shower and one for handheld.

    My other option is Delta T17240 with value R10000-UNBX which would do the volume/temperature and pressure sense. Any comments on that configuration from anyone... Thanks!

    I would say go with Delta valves they are the only valves I use.

    Assuming the handheld and shower are in the same space, use a divertor valve to select each in tandem or separately instead of a primary valve.

    I'd planned to pipe both hot and cold to two separate valves so that we could reach the handheld valve from the shower seat, turn on & off without having to stand and reach the main valve for the tall up shower -- instead of doing one valve and a diverter.

    Question is: Is there anything screwy about tee piping the supply lines to two valves? Normally, they would not be on at the same time.

    Thanks again for all the help.

    Probably okay, but more costly. A divertor is cheaper than a whole valve.
