General Install ??
Is this model setup for new construction install or can it be used to replace an existing Delta fixture. The instructions seem point as a new install only??
Hi Zen, Thank you for your question!
The 144984-BN does include the valve body for new construction installation. However, the trim can fit an existing 1300/1400 series ( old 1300/1400 cartridge has to be used with new trim).
Best regards, Brandis

In previous Q/A, waste assembly recommended for 144984-BN was RP691SS; but, it's discontinued. Is there a new part #?
Thank you for your question. At this time, we no longer make a trip-lever bath waste assembly in Stainless Steel. However, we do have a toe-stopper bath waste, RP693SS.

What code do I have to use to get the B3 (coppersweat installation) version when ordering the Porter Monitor 14 Series Tub and Shower?
Thank you for your question. Your tub spout pipe has an adapter that will work with a tub spout that uses either the RP12307 (1/2" sweat or 1/2" IPS threaded connection) or RP33794 (1/2" slip-on) adapter.
The RP42915 uses the RP12307 adapter and is similar in style. This comes in the similar Stainless Steel or Venetian Bronze finish, but not Brushed Nickel or Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Which R10000 rough-in valve was included in this kit?
I see the rough-in valve that comes with this unit is MultiChoice R10000. Is it R10000-UNBX, -UNBXHF, -UNWS, MFWS, etc.? What are the differences between these? Thank you!
Hi Jill, Thank you for your question. The model 144984-BN comes with the R10000-UNBX tub and shower rough. The R10000-UNBXHF is the High Flow rough for showers only, UNWS comes With Stops so that the water to the faucet can be shut off at the valve, MFWS is for the cold expansion pex tubing with stops. The choices of the R10000's comes down to tub/shower vs shower only(HF), with (WS) or with out integral stops, and what type of material/pipe connection (IP, PX, MF) that you are using.
