Hi, Kat--

I second Corwyn's suggestion.

BTW--if you are going to use muriatic acid, be careful, it eats whatever it touches, including skin.

I seem to remember from my foray into plumbing tubs, that I saw a simple on-off valve for a shower (i.e. not a diverter), which matched my other requirements, so it would have been a low-force ceramic valve.  Three of those with a combiner and a pot filler would (I hope) meet all your requirements.

If not, I might put a mixing valve with a set temperature with the solar as the 'cold', near the tank.  That way it would pass straight solar unless it was too cold, or mix the minimum amount of hot to meet expectations.  Real 'cold' could then be added at the tub for personal preference.  That way you are in the region of standard plumbing.
