Custom Showers

I don't want to change my plumbing. What kind of shower can I get?

If you don’t want to modify any of your plumbing, you can get a standard shower, which you can customize with by simply choosing your own configuration options. You can also get a jetted shower, which can give you that spa-like experience without requiring a major overhaul of your entire bathroom.

 

See Your Shower Experience for more information on the options available.

What is a custom shower?

With a custom shower from Delta, you can customize to your heart’s content and create the shower of your dreams. This is your opportunity to get everything just the way you imagined it. You can pick the combination of showerheads, body sprays and handshowers that will work best for you and create the ultimate custom shower experience.

 

See Your Shower Experience for more information on the options available.

What is a jetted shower?

Delta’s Jetted Shower™ is the only semi-custom shower in the industry. It features a shower head and two spray jets with a wide, revitalizing, yet relaxing spray. You can add functionality by selecting the Jetted Shower XO (eXtra Outlet) and choosing an additional shower head, In2ition® Shower, XO Jet Module™ or hand shower.

I am looking to add a 15/16 inch shower arm to your Dryden rainfall shower head RP62283. But not sure if this will cause any issues. I pick out the products and my husband will do the installing. Trying to be educated in my selection decisions.

Answer: 
Hi DeeDee, Thank you for your question. The length of the shower arm will not affect the flowrate of the RP62283 showerhead. The showerhead itself which is rated at a max flowrate of 2.5 gallons per minute determines the flow.
Thanks,
Dave

Can I purchase just a handle?

I am currently purchasing Delta products for a shower rebuild. I am building a custom shower and have picked out my jets and the shower heads. But I need handles. Can I buy just handles?

Hi Joyce, Thank you for your question. The handles to our faucets are available to order as separate items. Most collections also offer valve only trims if you need the escutcheon, screws, and trim sleeve too.

Custom shower

If I do as suggested below. How can a get a hook up or plumbing diagram?

Hi Jacks, Thank you for your question. Shower rough model number should be R10000-UNBXHF. If you plan on using the fixed showerhead from the T17251-PN in addition to the slide bar hand shower and the body sprays you will need the T11951-PN diverter trim, and the 50570-PN wall elbow. If you plan on connecting the 57051-PN hose directly to the shower arm the rest of your set up is correct.
One factor to keep an eye on is the water usage of the various devices and the capabilities of the valve. At 60psi given the valve and trim combination you have listed you will have approximately 5 gallons per minute of available water.
Upgrading to the T17T251-PN shower trim will give you approimately 7 gpm at 60 psi. The fixed showerhead has a 2.5 gpm flowrate and the handshower and each body spray are 2.0 gpm.
Thanks,
Dave

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Jacks, Thank you for your question. You will first need a shower rough, we recommend the R10000-UNBXHF. Next is the shower trim of your choice. The TempAssure 17T series trims offer the highest flow rate to operate the multiple showerheads/bodysprays. To control which of the devices are used you will need a R11000 diverter rough, and a matching 6 setting 3 port diverter trim. The diverter trim model will start with T119. This will allow you to use each feature individually or any 2 at a time, showerhead & hand shower, showerhead & body sprays, or hand shower & bodysprays. You will also need an additional shower arm and shower arm flange for the 54433 hand shower.
Thanks,
Dave

I want 2 (two) of the Lahara Monitor 17 Series Shower Trims and the Delta 3 Setting H2OKinetic Traditional Raincan Showerhead. I will like to be able to have the option of all three running at the same time or only one or two. What do I need to purchase?

Answer: 
Hi Marie, Thank you for your question. You will need to order the following.
2 qty R10000-UNBXHF roughs
2 qty T17238 shower trims
1 qty R11000 diverter rough
1 qty T11800 diverter trim
1 qty 52687 raincan shower head
1 qty RP61058 ceiling mount shower arm and flange
One of the faucet roughs and trims will be installed as a normal faucet with the valve controlling a single showerhead. The other faucet will be installed with the R11000 diverter and trim. The regular and overhead showerhead will be plumbed through the diverter which will allow you to use the wall showerhead only, raincan shower head only or both at the same time.
You could go with 1 faucet and plumb all three showerheads through the R11000 diverter with a model T11900 trim but you will only be able to use any 2 showerheads at a time, not all three.
Thanks,
Dave
