Is there anything wrong technically speaking in this scenario where both bathrooms have mixet valves but one of them is being replaced with a delta?

Are you asking if its OK to have one manufacturer in one bath and another manufacturer in another?

You can't see them at the same time!

There is no TECHNICAL reason to have all showers with the same "brand" of valves. Many buyers prefer to see all the shower mixers look the same, as this is how most builders deliver homes, but the operational characteristics of any one shower is completely independent of any others in the home regardless of whether they are back-to-back, on the same supply or on different floors...

It depends. If that new Delta has a thermal True type cartridge there could be issues. We've seen where mixing a non temperature controlled unit with another thermal cartridge type faucet, that you can have surging temperatures at the thermal unit. As far as mixing brands, no big deal as long as they are alike. I'm not a fan of thermal faucets, particularly at showers. None will produce a hot shower, warm yes, hot-no. They have been one of the biggest complaint in the new houses.
