Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta Makes a Good Quality Valve Body This valve body is solidly constructed. It is also very innovatively and logically designed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Valve Upgrade This new rough-in valve gave us the flexibility to install a shower handle with temperature control independent of the water volume. Went it easily and works great. Best of all, if access to the cartridge is needed in the future, it can easily be done by just removing the handle and not cutting into the wall! Easy to order, great price and excellent delivery time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as expected Not much to say. How do you review a rough in valve? It arrived as advertised, was installed by a professional plumber, and so far is functioning properly. I hope that remains the case as it is now buried behind expensive tile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good Our contractor installed this valve in our new bathroom. We purchased the one with "service stops" because we were told these "stops" allowed you to turn off the water here and not have to turn water off to the whole house. It seems to work because our shower works fine. Obviously, I'm not a contractor and had no clue what this was for, but our contractor indicated it worked fine, too. I'm not sure how much these cost at retail and I can't speak about the quality other than our experience. It seems to do the job it's supposed to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DELTA R10000-UNBX I almost exclusively use Delta faucets so I go through many of these. The valve is well made brass and you can knock out the reducer for commercial applications to increase flow rate. The bracket is another story. It is usually damaged from the box (bent) and is made of cheap composite metal so bending it back usually breaks it. It also won't stand up to the torch while sweating. I buy several extra brackets to keep on hand to replace. Maybe Delta will make them out of brass one day...

I bought this valve and is it possible to run to the shower and than run the tub spout to a rain head? And then on top of that is there trim kit that can run both at the same time, one at a time? Or do I have to buy a diverter valve?

Asked by: tyler
Thank you for your question, Tyler. You would need an R11000 diverter valve and a 3-setting trim kit in order to divert between a shower head and rain can shower head. The R11000 valve will be connected to the top port of the R10000. Best regards, Jon

What is the difference between this model with PEX Cold Expansion R10000-MF and the PEX Crimp R10000-PX? Is the insert barb bigger in the former than the latter to accommodate the stretched PEX during installation? Thanks.

Asked by: David
Thank you for your question, David! The difference on these models is solely in the connection for the Inlets in regards to the type being used. Both will feature universal 1/2" connections, however the R1000-PX will have slightly tapered inlets for easier installation. Best regards, Edward

i installed two of these rough in valves into my walk in shower. I teed the hots and colds together from original. I don't have a valve yet but plugged the shower head. i noticed that the valve itself is very hot to the touch with no H2O moving through

Asked by: Doug
Hi, Doug. Thank you for your question. The R10000-MF is a solid brass valve body. Any type of connection around the valve body in your wall that gets hot will make the valve body hot. Best Regards, Rosanna

What is the difference between a "box" model and the other roughin valves? Also, what is the difference between a high flow model and non high flow rough in showervalve?

Asked by: Aaron
Hello Aaron, Thank you for your question. The Delta MultiChoice Universal Rough-In "box" model rough-in valves are single model units and non-box models comes as bulk/case of units. The difference between the High Flow and non high flow valves is that there (non high flow valve) a bottom port for a tub spout installation and the R10000-UNBXHF valve does not include a bottom port for a tub spout installation. The high flow valve are designed for shower only installation. Best regards, Tanya

Pex inlet flow restriction...?

The inner dimension of the PEX inlets on these vale bodies are considerably smaller than any 1/2" cold expansion fitting I've seen (picture attached for reference). After referencing different pictures of these cold expansion PEX valve bodies, some versions show larger inner diameters on the inlets, while some are smaller. My questions/concerns: Wouldn't these inlets with a smaller ID restrict water flow? Can you please provide the actual Flow/GPM of this specific valve body with these small inlets? Are the inner diameters of the PEX inlets different between the WS and non-WS versions? Thank You
Asked by: Grizzle
Grizzle, Thank you for your question! There is no difference in inlet diameter between MF and MFWS or any other with and without stops roughs. The difference in the inlets between PEX (MF, PX) and other valve types (UN, IP, etc.) will not produce a noticeable change in the flow rate as the waterways through the cartridge are more restrictive. The cartridge determines the flow rate, so the maximum flow rate will be determined by the series of trim that you use. Here are the approximate flow rates for each series at 60 PSI: 14 series - 5.8 GPM 17 series - 5.9 GPM 17T series - 7.3 GPM Best regards, Jon

Not completely understanding the different pex type of barb fittings, would the R1000-MF or the R1000-PX be the correct choice if my plumbing contractor uses Upinor Propex fittings for his installations? Is there a tech. sheet for fitting profiles?

Asked by: Captain T
Thank you for your question, Captain T! Both the R10000-MF (1/2" PEX cold expansion connections) and the R10000-PX (1/2" PEX Crimp connections) have 1/2" universal outlets with male threads. The difference on these models is solely in the connection for the Inlets. Both will feature universal 1/2" connections, however the R1000-PX will have slightly tapered inlets for easier installation. This would be up to the contractor to decide what methods best suit the installation needs. https://media.deltafaucet.com/MandI/50353%20Rev%20J.pdf https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-B-R10000%20Rev%20J.pdf Best regards, Edward
