Delta MultiChoice® Universal Tub and Shower Valve Body 4.7 5 82 82
BEST VALVE This is a universal pressure balance valve. I love this product because it truly is UNIVERSAL with any delta trim sets! It is extremly simple to install and even more simple to operate. I highly suggest using this valve when you are remodeling your bathroom. January 12, 2013
Shower Head is Leaking Had Delta Model 10000 valve put in with a shower head about 13 months ago. Shower head is now dripping. Hate to see new product not performing so soon after installation. April 23, 2013
Replacing Rough Valve in old wall The product was fine, and the final result was good. I was replacing a 70-year old shower valve that was leaking, motivated by a desire to upgrade to a modern cartridge type. I wish I had paid more attention to physical dimensions of the new valve. With the (well-built) thickness of my existing plaster/tile wall, the valve wouldn't protrude far enough into the shower side of the wall. With a lot of chiseling of concrete, I finally got the job done. If such a longer-throat valve exists, it would have made the job a lot easier. If you have an older, thicker wall, look for such a valve. August 29, 2012
Great product, Faucet direct website recomended wrong valve Just purchased the R10000-UNBX Delta Universal valve as part of ordering a shower only control and shower head. The website said this was the model needed. However this model is used for Shower and Tub combinations not shower only. I will be returning and getting R10000 UNWSHF. The WS is a great feature that shuts the water off so you can work on the faucet without turning off the water. The HF is High Flow and means the port to the tub is already blocked. An added feature is the connections have male threads on outside. If you want to sweat the lines you need a different model. February 7, 2015
Good but not all there To keep it simple, make sure you by the version with the shotoff valve unless you can install the control of the shower as this piece doesn't have the ability to stop the water without it! Once the shower compnent was added this worked like a champ, but took a few frustrating moments of reading and re-reading the installation instructions to discover that it never talked about how to shutoff the water when it's turned on to re=pressurize your lines. - YOU NEED the shower controls or the other style that has the valve in it! October 13, 2008
Why change a good thing. We ahve install so many of these valves we can pop them in in minutes. I have never had them fail. I have had the valve protion be defective but Delta is good about send out a replacement. I wish they would send them to directly to me the contractor rather than only sending them to the home owner once the unit is installed. I purchased the unit, I suggested it, I installed it and I service it free of charge if there is a problem, send the valve to me. April 1, 2015
Did not Need We were confused by the details of the Delta faucet we purchased that we would need this additional part as it kept popping up saying we did. Anyway, we bought it and it was delivered separately, however, this part is included in the package already with the Delta faucet set we purchased. Should have spent a lot more time reading small print and details. The part itself was fine if one should need it. March 28, 2015
Good product, better supplier The Delta valve and cover are certainly acceptably good products, though the instructions for setting the water temperature are both poorly written and hidden in an arcanely designed PDF file (not at all available in the written matter with packaged with the product). That is, you have to go online to Delta and search for the proper product insturctions and then ... good luck. August 6, 2011

How to test and flush

On step 4, your installation instructions say to "Reinstall cap and bonnet and tighten securely. Plug both outlets with proper fittings. Check for leaks."

Firstly, you only provided one "reusable test plug" yet you say to plug both outlets. You also say to reinstall cap and bonnet before putting the plugs in, which is impossible, unless the plug actually goes on the outside of the valve somewhere for testing. Secondly, you don't say how to go about checking for leaks. Do I simply turn the water supply on for X amount of time or how long is sufficient? Do you have a video on this procedure? I can't find it on your support page. More detailed instructions would be helpful.

Additionally, do you recommend a specific type of cap for the lower port if I am not using with a tub spout? I.e. Must it be brass or can it be iron, etc.?

Answer: 
Hi Asmad, Thank you for your question. Step 4 is in regards to pressure testing the valve. The outlets that are referred to are the tub spout and showerhead stub outs. Once those are plugged and the test cap and bonnet are installed you can pressure test all of your connections.
The test plug to plug the ports in the valve body itself when fully pushed in will fit under the test cap to check flow from the hot and cold ports in the valve.
To test for leaks you do just turn on the water and let it run long enough to verify that there are no leaks in your system.
We offer the RP20032 plug that can be sweated into the tub port on a R10000-UNBX or a brass 1/2" cap will work as well.
Thanks,
Dave

17 Series cartridge adapter installation

I have the R10000-PXWS universal valve and the cartridge that came with our trim kit is a 17 series. The instructions say to push the cartridge adapter into the valve assembly and then screw that in place to secure it. This valve assembly does not have a hole to receive the screw. Instead there is an empty space where the screw hole should be.

I can remove the screw entirely and install the adapter, then the cartridge. Would this be secure enough once the retaining ring is tightened over the cartridge?

What can you do if your plastic square is sticking outside of the finished wall?

We had the plumbers come out to install the R10000UNWS along with the R11000 diverter. The diverter is perfect; however it seems that when we put up the wall board it just sits on top of the plastic square. It looks as though once we do the thin set and tile it will be flush. Is there something else we can do?

Hi Blondie, Thank you for your question. For with stops models, which includes the R10000-UNWS the plasterguard must be flush or subflush 1/4" to finished wall. The finished wall would include the tile in your application.

Answer: 
Hi NSL!

Thanks for your question! The R10000-UNWS-3 is the same valve except the package contains 3 valves. So if you are wanting to purchase just one valve, you'll want to purchase the R10000-UNWS.

Is there an easy fix if the plasterguard is sticking too far out of the finished wall?

After everything has been redone in our tiled shower, the plasterguard is sticking out at least a half inch from the tiled shower wall. This prevents the trim plate (the escutcheon?) from being installed tightly against the finished wall. Is there anything that can be done to remedy this?

Answer: 
Hi Amy, Thank you for your question. The plasterguard on the R10000-UNWS must be mounted flush or subflush 1/4" to the finished wall. Unfortunately the only fix is to re-rough the valve to the proper distance. If you have a 13/14 series faucet removing the plasterguard itself and ordering the 3/4" longer RP22735 trim sleeve might work.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Barry, Thank you for your question. The BT13210-SS shower trim is compatible with the R10000-UNBXHF. You will not need to purchase a separate carttridge as the cartridge is included with the BT13210-SS. The cartridge is equipped with a rotational limit stop that allows you to set the max hot water temperature. The Scald Guard feature cannot be removed. This feature keeps the temperature of the faucet consistent if someone else in the home turns on the hot or cold water.

Dave

Hi Ed, Thank you for your question. The plug should fit into the port until it bottoms out. This will leave approximately 1/8" of the plug exposed. The plug should slide in without the use of a hammer especially when the flux is added prior to sweating.

Valve connection to tub spout

Our plumber installed pex between the universal valve and the tub spout, using a drop ear fitting where the tub spout will go. I have re-read the instructions and realize this was incorrect. We have not closed up the wall yet, so I am wondering if we can fix this ourselves. Does the copper pipe connection require soldering? How does the iron pipe install on the valve? I'm not sure which would be easier.

Answer: 
Hi robinja, Thank you for your question. To install copper pipe on the R10000-UNWS you would have to solder the pipe connections. If using galvanized pipe the valve has a 1/2" male pipe outlet, you would need to install a coupling first and then the length of pipe to the drop ear elbow.
