Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by This part was satisfactory, and I've had no issues with this piece that I know of. It required saudering, which I've never done before, so I had someone else install it. I was replacing an older model of this fixture and was told the old one was worn out. However, my handiman spent a LOT of time trying to figure this part out...so I'm not sure if that's on him or this part...thus 4 instead of 5 stars. July 16, 2010
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

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

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.

Answer: 
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.

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.

Temp adjustment for R10000-UNWS

I just had a bathroom remodel completed and they didn't adjust the valve correctly (I guess) as I don't get any hot water. I looked at the video but didn't recognize any of the valves used. The trim kit I have is a Linden, T14294RB.

Hi Roger,

Thank you for contacting us. On a new installation, you may need to adjust the Rotational Limit Stop to get hot water. Please see our How-To Video linked below or refer to your installation guide for help adjusting the stop.

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
Dan

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.

Can I buy extra parts to upgrade the R10000-UNWS & T17253 to equal the T17T453?

I need to add a bathtub faucet and thermostatic cartridge. If I buy the RP53419SS faucet and the RP47201 thermostatic cartridge, will they work with the R10000-UNWS MultiChoice Rough and T17253 shower trim kit?

Answer: 
Hi Jumperboy,

Thank you for your question. While the tub spout would work, the thermostatic cartridge RP47201 would not work with the handles for the T17253. You would also need the RP62960 volume handle, RP62959 temperature knob, and RP50879 sleeve.
