Delta vs. Kohler Thermostatic Shower

Showers available on the market fall into one of two definitions; pressure balanced or thermostatic.

Both work great to avoid unnecessary flashes of scalding hot or icy cold water, but a thermostatic valve gives you independent control over both temperature and water volume.
