Can you tell me which cartridge is used with the multichoice R10000-pxws valve?
Hi James, Thank you for your question!
Our universal R10000-PXWS valve can be used with any of our multi choice T13,T14,T17 or T17T cartridges. The cartridges are included with the trims.

If using this for only shower....
I just cap off the tub output and I am good to go?
Thank you for your question. The valve will be ready for a shower only application if the bottom port is capped.

PEX from valve to showerhead?
I know you recommend copper from the valve to the tub sprout because of shower rise. Does it matter if I run PEX from the valve to showhead? Do you recommend either copper or PEX for best performance or does it simply not matter?
Hi Aaron, Thank you for your question. PEX can be used on the valve to showerhead connection with no issues. There is no performance benefit using either pex or copper to the showerhead.

Building a shower using this valve. want to use 4 Body sprays- D50150SS on one 17T valve. I'm concerned about flow/pressure if 7gpm at 60 psi. the Delta sprays are rated 2 gpm each. I don't yet know street pressure. if 60 psi, will this work? 70 psi?
Thank you for your question. To add the Delta Body Sprays 50150-SS you would need to also install the R11000 3/6-Setting Diverter Rough-In Valve. The flow rate will be primarily determined by the main valve and trim that you use (R10000 + 13/14, 17, or 17T trim). The approximate maximum flow rate from the diverter valve at 60 PSI is:
14 series - 5.8 GPM 17 series - 5.9 GPM 17T series - 7.3 GPM
With R10000-UNBXHF (High-Flow):
14 series - 6.3 GPM 17 series - 6.6 GPM 17T series - 8.6 GPM
At 80 PSI the flow rate is increased by approximately 1 GPM.
These are the maximum total flow rates from the diverter valve in a shared position.
The maximum flow from an individual diverter port is limited to 5 to 6 gallons per minute, depending on pressure and the trim series chosen.

What is the meaning of "Universal?"
I have purchased one of these valves and want to use a trim kit by another maker. Is this valve compatible with other faucet makers? Do valve cartidges usually come with the trim kits?
Thank you for your question. This valve is only designed to work with Delta trim kits. The cartridge will be included with the trim kit.

shower only pex bottom outlet connection
I am replacing a 10+ years 1400 series old valve body in which I sheared off (poorly designed as seen in middle picture) the 3 copper pipes connecting the valve body frame to the cartridge receptor drum, while trying to replace the RP19804 cartridge due to dripping shower head.
I bought the R10000-UNBX, as although all my pipes are PEX, I also would need elbow and outlet fittings anyway to reach my current pipe locations.
This is installed opposite the showerhead wall, in a knee-wall topped with glass enclosure, so the top outlet was capped off, and the shower was fed from the bottom outlet (as seen in 1st and 3rd pictures).
The old valve had a few inches of copper pipe before the PEX connection (1st & 3rd pic).
I also notice the RP10000 instructions mention the tub outlet (which I am using for shower only) drop pipe must be 8-18 inches copper only.
Is this initial copper length only required for the pull-diverter mechanism from bath-spout to shower, or is it still required in my application and why, or can I connect my PEX directly to the bottom outlet using an NPT-PEX adapter?
Hi Ismail, Thank you for your question. If you are using the R10000-UNBX in a shower only installation, with the tub outlet going to the showerhead you can hook up the pex tubing directly to the valve as pictured. The 8"-18" copper pipe installation does refer to the tub spout diverter specifically to prevent shower rise.

Why not have a PEX crimp port on the top port to the shower spout? This would eliminate using an adapter. What am I missing?
Thank you for your question, Scott101. This version has PEX crimp connections on the supply lines. The tub and spout outlet ports have 1/2" NPT male thread with 1/2" C.W.T. female sweat connections. You may connect a PEX adapter to the shower port. For a tub and shower installation, the drop to the tub spout must be 1/2" copper or iron pipe.
Best regards, Jon
