17 Series cartridge adapter installation

I have the R10000-PXWS universal valve and the cartridge that came with our trim kit is a 17 series. The instructions say to push the cartridge adapter into the valve assembly and then screw that in place to secure it. This valve assembly does not have a hole to receive the screw. Instead there is an empty space where the screw hole should be.

I can remove the screw entirely and install the adapter, then the cartridge. Would this be secure enough once the retaining ring is tightened over the cartridge?

Answer: 
Hi NSL!

Thanks for your question! The R10000-UNWS-3 is the same valve except the package contains 3 valves. So if you are wanting to purchase just one valve, you'll want to purchase the R10000-UNWS.

Best Regards,
Justin

How to test and flush

On step 4, your installation instructions say to "Reinstall cap and bonnet and tighten securely. Plug both outlets with proper fittings. Check for leaks."

Firstly, you only provided one "reusable test plug" yet you say to plug both outlets. You also say to reinstall cap and bonnet before putting the plugs in, which is impossible, unless the plug actually goes on the outside of the valve somewhere for testing. Secondly, you don't say how to go about checking for leaks. Do I simply turn the water supply on for X amount of time or how long is sufficient? Do you have a video on this procedure? I can't find it on your support page. More detailed instructions would be helpful.

Additionally, do you recommend a specific type of cap for the lower port if I am not using with a tub spout? I.e. Must it be brass or can it be iron, etc.?

Answer: 
Hi Asmad, Thank you for your question. Step 4 is in regards to pressure testing the valve. The outlets that are referred to are the tub spout and showerhead stub outs. Once those are plugged and the test cap and bonnet are installed you can pressure test all of your connections.
The test plug to plug the ports in the valve body itself when fully pushed in will fit under the test cap to check flow from the hot and cold ports in the valve.
To test for leaks you do just turn on the water and let it run long enough to verify that there are no leaks in your system.
We offer the RP20032 plug that can be sweated into the tub port on a R10000-UNBX or a brass 1/2" cap will work as well.
Thanks,
Dave

Is there an easy fix if the plasterguard is sticking too far out of the finished wall?

After everything has been redone in our tiled shower, the plasterguard is sticking out at least a half inch from the tiled shower wall. This prevents the trim plate (the escutcheon?) from being installed tightly against the finished wall. Is there anything that can be done to remedy this?

Answer: 
Hi Amy, Thank you for your question. The plasterguard on the R10000-UNWS must be mounted flush or subflush 1/4" to the finished wall. Unfortunately the only fix is to re-rough the valve to the proper distance. If you have a 13/14 series faucet removing the plasterguard itself and ordering the 3/4" longer RP22735 trim sleeve might work.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Barry, Thank you for your question. The BT13210-SS shower trim is compatible with the R10000-UNBXHF. You will not need to purchase a separate carttridge as the cartridge is included with the BT13210-SS. The cartridge is equipped with a rotational limit stop that allows you to set the max hot water temperature. The Scald Guard feature cannot be removed. This feature keeps the temperature of the faucet consistent if someone else in the home turns on the hot or cold water.

Dave

What can you do if your plastic square is sticking outside of the finished wall?

We had the plumbers come out to install the R10000UNWS along with the R11000 diverter. The diverter is perfect; however it seems that when we put up the wall board it just sits on top of the plastic square. It looks as though once we do the thin set and tile it will be flush. Is there something else we can do?

Valve connection to tub spout

Our plumber installed pex between the universal valve and the tub spout, using a drop ear fitting where the tub spout will go. I have re-read the instructions and realize this was incorrect. We have not closed up the wall yet, so I am wondering if we can fix this ourselves. Does the copper pipe connection require soldering? How does the iron pipe install on the valve? I'm not sure which would be easier.

Answer: 
Hi robinja, Thank you for your question. To install copper pipe on the R10000-UNWS you would have to solder the pipe connections. If using galvanized pipe the valve has a 1/2" male pipe outlet, you would need to install a coupling first and then the length of pipe to the drop ear elbow.

Hi Deb, Thank you for your question. The rotational limit stop is located at the end of the cartridge for most models and allows you to set the max hot water temperature for the faucet. Here is a link to our How to adjust the rotational limit video that covers our T13/T14, T17, and T17T faucets.

i installed 13/14, 17 & 17T series MultiChoice valve trim 4 years ago. Been have trouble since. When the Kids give the grand kids bath the water trickles out the shower head too! Strong out of tub. Seems when we open sink valve the shower head slows down a bit so we think it's the excellant water pressure in the house. Delta said to use R10000-UNWS valve body instead???

Answers

Answer: 
Hi George Z, Thank you for your question. Most likely, you are experiencing "shower-rise" where the water can’t get out of the spout as fast as it flows through the valve. This causes the water to back up and come out the shower head. There can be one of several reasons for this:

The valve could be upside down
The length from the valve to the tub spout is outside of the 8" to 18" rule
There is more than one 90-degree angle
Something other than copper or galvanized pipe was used going to the spout
The most common reason is that there is something restricting the water flow to the spout, e.g. solder or something lodged in the pipe. Something is impeding the flow of water to the spout and causing it to back up and go out the shower head. If this is the cause of shower-rise it is possible to remove the blockage by removing the tub spout; then, feeding a plumber’s snake or a speedometer cable up through the tub drop. The act of feeding it causes it to twirl and loosen the blockage. Be sure to flush the valve before reinstalling the tub spout. Be sure to check the tub spout itself for blockage.
If none of these help, you may need to call a plumber. After the shower has been installed and the wall has been closed, there is little that can be done to remedy this situation yourself.
There would be no benefit to switching the valve body.
Thanks,
Dave
