Delta MultiChoice® Universal Tub and Shower Valve Body 3.7 5 3 3
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
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

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.
Thanks,
Dave

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?

Hi Staceman, Thank you for your question. The T13691-SOS-15 is one of our commercial tub/shower faucet trims. The rough that includes the push button diverter that goes with the trim is the R10300-UNWS. The R10000-UNBX will work with any of our other new trims.
Thanks,
Dave

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.

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.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Liz, Thank you for your question. The R10000-UNBX is the most commonly used version of the rough. If you want to be able to shut the water off at the faucet when doing any repairs the R10000-UNWS will work for you as well.

Do i need a in-wall diverter?

I have a Multichoice R10000 rough in kit and a multichoice T14059-rb monitor 1400 diverter trim valve.
I am hooking up a shower head and a handheld shower head on a bar w/ a supply elbow and need to divert one to the other.(there will not be a tub spout)
Im not sure if I bought the right thing. Do I need a in-wall diverter? I cant put a in-line by the shower head because the person is handi-capped and will not be able to reach high.
Thanks

Hi E&A Tile, Thank you for your question. You will want to plumb in a diveter. The R11000 diverter rough and the matching T11859-RB 3 setting diverter trim will allow you to use each showerhead individually or both at the same time.

universal valves

I am wanting to convert my single handle Price Pfister tub & shower set to a delta. Which universal adapter would I need for this and would it also be possible to choose a set which has the separate temp control when my current one is not that type?

Answer: 
Hi Patti, Thank you for your interest in our products. There is no way to adapt/convert another brand of faucet into a Delta. You would have to change the rough in behind the wall as well. The R10000UNWSBXT is one of our multichoice universal roughs. Once this rough is installed you can choose any of the Delta tub/shower trims to fit this rough in valve. Our T17 series trims offer separate temperature and volume control and are available in a variety of styles and finishes.

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.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Kayla, Thank you for your question. The R10000-UNBX multichoice universal rough will not have any issues with a tankless water heater. We recommend using the valve with our 13/14 series trims with a single function pressure balanced cartridge or our 17 series trims with a dual function pressure balanced cartridge when using a tankless water heater.
