Delta MultiChoice® Universal Tub and Shower Valve Body 4.4 5 11 11
Pleased Though I purchased this product several weeks ago, I found its installation quite easy. It not only has soundness of material, but it also made our renovation pleasant and smooth. The shutoff components on this Valve Body will no doubt make any future repairs easy and convenient. July 30, 2013
Very convenient The service stops on this rough in valve are very convenient for our "only bathroom" remodel. I'm able to shut off water at the valve in order to finish my tile. A must for a project that is the only existing bathroom. ~J~ September 29, 2014
Great product! Great product! This rough-in valve has service stops (shuts off the water) that the local Delta warehouse hasn't even seen yet! Every aspect of dealing with FaucetDirect has been excellent! July 25, 2014
Universal shower body Another high quality product from Delta, cheap good quality and matches with almost any cartridge manufactured for Delta, easy to work with. December 3, 2013
Universal Mixing VLV Easy to install and provides great water control. Works well and the service stops are a real time saver. May 13, 2014
Exactly what we needed! We were happy to be able to find exactly what we needed at Direct Faucet to do our bathroom remodel. June 2, 2014
Confused This is for a more commercial application so unless you have 20 showers. You will not need this.... July 21, 2014
Great company Since we found this company, it's the only company we shop for our plumbing supplies. May 19, 2014

What can I do if my valve body is set too deap

I have a shower only application with multiple heads. Installed was a R10000-UNWS valve body and then a R11000 diverter. The shower walls were floated and then tiled. I followed the installers recommendations for the depth of the valve body and the diverter. After the tile was installed the valve body and diverter are now set too deep (about 1 1/4 inch) into the wall. Is there anything that can be done to allow the trim kit and handle it fit without having to tear into the wall and reset the valve body and diverter?

I purchased Delta trim kit T17T253 for info.

Answer: 
Hi Chuck, Thank you for your question. There is no difference between the R10000-UN and R10000-UNBX. The R10000-UN is sold in case quantities of 12 pieces only. The R10000-UNBX can be purchased individually. The advantage of using the R10000-UNWS is that if you need to work on or service the tub/shower faucet you will be able to shut off the water supply at the faucet and not have to shut off the water to the rest of the house.
Thanks,
Dave

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?

Answer: 
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.

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

Answer: 
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.

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.
