Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
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 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 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 17, 2015

Delta MultiChoice Universal Tub and Shower Valve Body - Universal Inlets/Outlets
 
1 answer

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.

Best regards,
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.

UNBXHF or UNWS for shower-only installation?

Help! Plumbing supply store can't get UNBXHF valve initially recommended and is offering UNWS instead. However, I can get the UNBXHF from another retailer. This is for shower-only installation (single shower head) in a stand-up shower. Can you help me decide which one will work better for me? I like the independent temperature/volume control feature so I can adjust flow in the shower independent from the temperature control. Thank you.

Answer: 
Hi Rebecca,

Thank you for your question! If you are using a shower only, with no other components (hand showers, body sprays, etc), then you can use either of these valves. The UNWS version includes is With Stops (WS), which allow you to turn the water off at the valve in the wall while installing the trim or doing repairs, and the tub spout port can be easily capped off by a plumber for a shower only installation.

The temperature and volume control will be determined by the trim kit you use. Based on what you have described, you will want a 17 or 17T series trim.

R10000-UNWS Supply Pipe Sizing

I purchased a R10000-UNWS for my shower along with a rainhead and handheld wand. The valve body appears to come with 3/4 in fittings but my house piping is 1/2 inch copper pipe. Is is OK to use an adapter from 1/2 to 3/4 into the hot/cold water suply without adversly affecting the performance. My water pressure runs between 60-70 psi. If not, do you have models with a 1/2 in fitting?
Thanks in advance

Pex from valve to shower head

i understand why pex can't be used from the valve to the tub but the reasoning would not seem to apply in a shower only application. Is there any reason I can't run pex from the valve to the shower head? Also, I see that some people are installing the valve upside down to get greater flow to the shower. What is the rate of flow if installed normally and what is the rate of flow if installed upside down?
Thank you

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Swiftowl,

Thank you for your question! You may use PEX tubing from the valve to the shower head or the supplies. To increase the available flow rate for customer shower applications, we recommend to use a High Flow (HF) valve, such as the R10000-UNBXHF, which will increase the flow rate by about 1 gallon per minute at 60 PSI. We do not recommend installing a standard valve upside down.

Thanks,
Jon
