Answer: 
Hi Brian, Thank you for your question. If your bonnet nut is hard to remove we recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water and wrapping the towel around the bonnet nut. Allow the towel to soak overnight if possible. This should help break up the mineral build up allowing the nut to be removed.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Eric,

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # R10000-UNWS can be used with a tub only trim. You will need to plug the top port which is used for the showerhead.

Thanks.

The BX on the R10000 indicates that is a Single Box Model. What exactly is a single box model?

Also, I'm in the process of a remodel for a bathroom. What components will I need to have a shower and a hand held shower?

I'm thinking about the Vero trim for the shower and hand held.

Thank you for your input.

Answer: 
Hi SK, Thank you for your question. The single box is just that, you can purchase 1 R10000. The model R10000-UN can only be purchased 12 at a time. If you are installing a shower only we recommend using the R10000-UNBXHF which will give a higher flowrate for the multiple showerheads, this valve cannot be used in a tub installation. Trim choices in the Vero collection include T14253 and T14253-H2O in the 14 series. If you want temperature and volume control the 17 series offers the models T17253 and T17253-H2O. The H2O kinetic showerheads are the differences between the models. If you want to control the showerheads to work individually or together you will also need a R11000 rough in and a T11853 diverter trim. Finally for the handshower you can choose the wall mount 55530 or the slide bar version 57530, and the wall elbow 50570.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Iku1, Thank you for your question. The motion of the handle will run from 3 o-clock (off) to 12 o-clock (full on). The faucet is equipped with a rotational limit stop where you set how hot the water can get. I have attached a link to a video to show you how to make this adjustment.
Thanks,
Dave

Even though I have not pulled the shower knob up on the tub spout to activate the shower head, water is coming out of both the tub spout and shower head?

Is there a direction (top or bottom) that you have to install the rough-in valve? Can you connect the tub spout or shower head up to either port?

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Joe, We are sorry that you are experiencing a problem with your faucet. 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.

Hi Bill, Thank you for your question. The cartridge actually comes with whatever trim you select. The 13/14 series features a single function pressure balanced cartridge, the 17 series has a dual function pressure balanced cartridge, and the 17T series has a thermostatic cartridge. All will offer scald guard protection.
Thanks,

I have a four port valve control for a shower only installation and need to plug a port.

It appears as though the hole in the tub port is larger then the hole for the shower port. Can I plug the hole for the shower and use the tub port for my shower to get more pressure?

Thank you for your question. We do not recommend rotating your shower valve assembly. The showerhead itself is restricted to 2.5 gallons per minute flowrate.

New trim for old valve body

I need to replace the trim package on my existing Monitor 1700 Series shower valve. The existing cartridge is an RP32104 (white top, single tab on left). The valve body seems to be an older model that has screwdriver stop assemblies soldered to both sides and the threaded screw holes for the escutcheon trim screws are both on the bottom of the side of the body. All of the replacement trim packages show the screws on the lower left and upper right so they don't line up with the screw holes on my valve body. The new mounting brackets don't seem to provide an access to the screwdriver stops. Is there an adaptor or some other way to mount a new trim package to this valve body?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately there is not a trim that will fit your current valve body. You will need to replace the valve too. We recommend Delta Faucet model # R10000-UNBX multi-choice valve.

Or if you want to keep the screwdriver stops like on your current valve, then we would recommend Delta Faucet model # R10000-UNWS. This would allow you to turn the water off at the valve for servicing instead of the whole house.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. It looks like you have everything you need and maybe a little extra. Delta Faucet model # RP52382 will be your showerhead. Model # T17T097 is a valve only and does not have a showerhead. The only peice I am not sure about is Delta Faucet model # H597. I don't know what you are going to use this handle for in your shower system.

Thanks.
