Rated 5 out of 5 by thalia 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rocky49 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tom23 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tarm185 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laguna bldr 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hayzlett 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 plumber said it was far better far than what you would get at a big box
My plumber remarked that the quality of this item was far better and had extra qualities for less than I would have paid at one of the big box stores. My only hiccup came from UPS; they held the product in Raleigh for 24hrs then transferred to the local PO who again held it for 24hrs. A waiting plumber is costly. Faucet Direct was speedy with processing and shipping, so no fault with FD.
