another reason why shut off valves are a good thing.

Hammy:

You see the slotted silver object to left of the valve body. That is a screw driver stop (Shutoff valve). That is considered an option by Delta.

That's the culprit all right. Mine didn't have the stops.

With some manufactures integral stops are an option, as in the case with Price Pfister pressure balance valve. The standard valve is 0X8-310a and the one with integral stops are 0X8-340a which can be purchase as an option. No extra plumbing needed as it's part of the pressure balance valve. The same with there thermostatic valves.

I'm glad you found the problem.

It would work fine with new construction, but you're screwed when remodeling in occupied homes.

Why don't they just included a cartridge like every other faucet manufacturer does?

Its nice to know that Delta is working on improving their notorioulsy faulty designs, but it seems they still have a way to go.

that's my point - why Delta do not add simple plastic separator? As others manufacturers do. Costs few cents a cures a lot of headaches.
