Delta MultiChoice® Universal Tub and Shower Valve Body 4.7 5 57 57
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
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
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
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. September 13, 2013
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. May 1, 2011
works great. 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. June 5, 2010

Was R10000-UNBX valve body used with 1343 valve 11 years ago?

I am about to rebuild my 11 year old shower that was installed with a Delta 1343 valve at that time. I will be taking down the walls and retiling. I plan to replace the shower trim package. Was the R10000-UNBX body used then and, if so, should I replace it with a new valve body?

Answer: 
Hi Bitsmasher, Thank you for your question. The R10000-UNBX would not have been used in the model 1343 faucet from 11 years ago. The valve was introduced in February of 2006. You will be able to use the new T13/14 series trims with your existing valve body. The new trim ships with a new cartridge but you would have to continue to use the existing cartridge or replace it with a new RP19804.
Switching the valve body out to a new R10000-UNBX multichoice universal rough would allow you to install any of our faucet trims and allow you to switch out finishes, or upgrade the faucet in the future without changing the valve.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Yxetower,

Thank you for your question. To make your shower system function properly, we recommend using Delta Faucet model # R10000-UNBX rough-in valve. You will also need a supply elbow for your handheld shower. We recommend model # 50570.

Thanks.

Delta MultiChoice Valves

I am building 2 bathrooms and am looking at Delta faucets, etc. However, I have been warned to stay away from plumbing fixtures that have plastic pieces. Can you tell me if there is any plastic in the multichoice shower valve and what type of cartridge does the valve have? Ceramic, the new DST? Thank you.

Answer: 
Hi bkj03, The R10000 multichoice universal rough is made of brass. The rough will take our RP46074 single function pressure balanced cartridge, the RP46463 dual function pressure balanced cartridge, and the RP47201 dual function thermostatic cartridge. The cartridges use polymer seals, they are not ceramic.

Answer: 
Hi Robin, Thank you for your question. The only extension kit available for the R10000-UNWS works if you are using a 17 series thermostatic trim. The part number is RP75136.
If you are using a T13, T14, or a T17 series pressure balanced trim, there is no extension kit available that will work with the R10000-UNWS.

Difference between R10000UNBX and R10000UNHF

What exactly is the main difference between the UNBX and UNHF? I understand the UNHF has no tub port as it is capped off at factory. If I took the UNBX, capped off the tub port, does that make it HF? Is there actually a higher flow rate coming through the UNHF model as opposed to the UNBX model, or is it just the tub port being capped that makes the UNHF a high flow?

Hi J, Thank you for question. The R10000-UNHF does not have a port to the tub spout at all, not just the R10000-UNBX capped off. The capped off R10000-UNBX would offer a higher flowrate than one using the tub spout, but not as high a flowrate as the R10000-UNBXHF.

Will R10000-UNBX work with T13691-SOS-15 trim kit (Monitor 1300 series trim on box.)

Good afternoon,
I bought the R10000-UNBX rough in valve. I also bought the T13691-SOS-15 trim kit (Monitor 1300 series trim only tub/shower w/ cartridge fits multi choice Universal valve - on box.) From my research it seemed like the rough in valve worked with all the new trim kits. I'm not sure it will work with this one as there is a diverter valve hole in the trim plate. And I do not see a diverter valve with trim kit or rough in valve.
If I need to buy the diverter valve could you please provide the part number?

Use of pex between R10000 and R11000

I'm using your R10000 valve and R11000 diverter, for a fixed and hand-held shower installation (no tub.)

Based on research I've already conducted I'm planning on installing the R10000 upside down (ie, using the tub spout outlet) and plugging the shower outlet instead, to maximize pressure to the diverter.

The R10000 installation instructions stipulate one restriction only; that is, that copper MUST be used for the tub spout drop.

My question, therefore, is this: can I use pex between the tub spout outlet and the diverter input?

Thank you.

Answer: 
Hi TK, Thank you for your question. You will need your shower trim T17278, and shower rough, we recommend the R10000-UNBXHF for your set up. The diverter will require the diverter trim T11800 and diverter rough R11000. This will allow you to use each showerhead individually or at the same time. The last piece you need in addition to the 51708 slide bar hand shower is the 50560 wall elbow for the hand shower.

What is flow rate on R10000-UNWS?

As part of a new shower install, the plumber used the R10000-UNWS and a Series 13 single handle shower. The water pressure at the shower head seems very low compared to the old installation. Even without a showerhead in place it's very low. The stops on the valve body seem to be in full open.

Is there any other adjustment possible to increase flow rate which I've measured at about 1.5 gpm?

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Calico, Thank you for your question. The flowrate of the shower port on the R10000-UNWS valve using a 13 Series trim is 4.35 gpm at 40 psi, 5.6 gpm at 60 psi, and 6.5 gpm at 80 psi. The showerhead itself can be rated at 1.5, 2.0, or 2.5 gpm depending on the actual trim that you selected. You may want to switch to a showerhead with a higher flowrate if the one that came with your trim is only a 1.5 gallon per minute model.
