Delta MultiChoice® Universal Tub and Shower Valve Body
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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Thanks, I needed this!
Thanks for advising me to get this for my Delta Shower. My husband was mad I purchased our shower without HIS help...so I was thrilled when my plumber told him I had EVERYTHING to complete my shower installation. Made my husband realize I CAN do some things without his help. You made me PROUD!! Thank you for all your help. I would recommend everyone to listen to your advise.

Easy Installation, Great Price
We purchased this valve for a bathroom remodel. We bought a Delta shower/tub kit and needed the rough-in valve, it cost way more everywhere else I looked. It was easy to install and works perfectly. Our old one would not fit the newer tub diverter we purchase and this was the right choice. The price was better than anything else I found online or in stores locally.

This value allows you to set the hot/cold mixture of the water and leave it set so the next time you turn on the shower, you don't have to mess with getting the right temperature. One caution though. You must install it with copper pipe. Plastic pipe can cause the shower to drip alot when you turn on the top spout. Follow all the directions for installation.
