Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Versitility Check review for T17430-MTS. Will be used in conjunction with it. Even though we've had this product for a year, have not had a chance to install yet. Was looking for unit with separate water volume and temp control. Could not find at local stores, found on line. Started looking at units knowing we wanted to replace existing cruddy ones with parts missing at some time. When these were found, went ahead and made the purchase. So at this point can only say they look good and will serve the purpose. March 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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
Rated 2 out of 5 by shower head is dripping the shower head is dripping just 4 months after we renovated our bathroom. I would think the shower head would last much longer than a few months February 19, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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

Dear Kathy,

Thank you for you question!

Yes, the R10000-UNWS valve can be used for either a tub/shower or shower only application. When you are installing it for shower only, simply cap the bottom port of the valve.

Best Regards,

Daniel.

What is considered the "finished wall" for installing a Delta R10000 Multi Choice value in an acrylic walk in shower unit??

For installing with a MAXX shower unit, the plasterguard should be flushed with the acrylic wall section (that is, the same as if you were installing with a tiled wall)?

Hi Jerry67,

Thank you for your question. That is correct! The finished wall will be the final surface after everything is installed. The acrylic wall section would be considered the finished wall in your installation.

Hello Michael,

Thanks for your question!

The R10000-UNBX will work in a tub only installation. However, you will need to cap the bottom port since you are not using a tub spout.

I hope this helps!

R10000 Rough in Body w/Stops version. (17T)

On either side of the valve body, there are two (2) mechanical stem and nut assemblies. I assume, when turning the stem(s) clockwise, and the stem(s) bottom out, this will stop the flow of water completely.
Conversely, if I turn the stem counter-clockwise the flow of water increases. How can I tell, without backing the stem out further than need be, will I get full flow?
Instructions say " adjust stem clockwise to close, and counterclockwise to open".
I'm not sure if I understand the purpose of these stops.

Thanks

Answer: 
Hi Rick,

Thank you for your question. These stops are designed to turn the water off directly at the valve during installation or repairs. They should be left in the open position when the trim is installed, as the cartridge will be used to turn the water on and off.

Jon

Hi Doug,

Thank you for your question!

The hole for the valve should be cut to the size of the plaster guard which is 4" x 4".

The hole for the size of the tub spout should be at least 1/2" for the pipe to fit through and no larger than the diameter of the tub spout, which is 3 1/8" on this model.

Hi AKDolFan,

Thank you for your question! We do not have a rough-in valve specifically designed for a tub-only-application. However, any R10000 valve except for the HF (High Flow) versions will work as a tub-only installation. You will simply need to cap the top port of the valve.

Question about depth of valve.

I am replacing my 25 year old Delta shower valve. I have been looking at various brands and models. The valve I am replacing takes out 2" from the face of the shower wall to the center of my 1/2" piping. I don't see this measurement in the specs of this valve, but they appear to be about 2". Is this correct? I see that some other companies valves take out a minimum of 2 3/4" which would be too much for my replacement.

Hi DJ,

Thank you for your question. The rough-in valve will require 2 3/4" from the stringer to the finished wall. The center of the piping would be less than 2" from the finished wall.
