Once I sweat in the plumbing to this valve I coud shut off these valves built into this rough in fixture and turn on the water source to the rest of my home. This allowed me to complete this project with water still available to my home.

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.

model number

I bought a R10000UNFER some years ago and would like another of the same but don't find that number now. What is the equivalent model?
Asked by: Bob
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # R10000-UNBX is our multi-choice valve that can be used with any application like copper, iron or PEX pipe. We do not have a model number that is R10000-UNFER.

Difference between R10000UNBX and R10000UNHF

What exactly is the main difference between the UNBX and UNHF? I understand the UNHF has no tub port as it is capped off at factory. If I took the UNBX, capped off the tub port, does that make it HF? Is there actually a higher flow rate coming through the UNHF model as opposed to the UNBX model, or is it just the tub port being capped that makes the UNHF a high flow?
Asked by: J
Hi J, Thank you for question. The R10000-UNHF does not have a port to the tub spout at all, not just the R10000-UNBX capped off. The capped off R10000-UNBX would offer a higher flowrate than one using the tub spout, but not as high a flowrate as the R10000-UNBXHF. Thanks, Dave

I have High pressure in my house and when you turn on the tub, water leaks at the shower head. Delta said to use R10000-UNWS valve body. Does that m

i installed 13/14, 17 & 17T series MultiChoice valve trim 4 years ago. Been have trouble since. When the Kids give the grand kids bath the water trickles out the shower head too! Strong out of tub. Seems when we open sink valve the shower head slows down a bit so we think it's the excellant water pressure in the house. Delta said to use R10000-UNWS valve body instead???
Asked by: George Z
Hi George Z, Thank you for your question. 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. There would be no benefit to switching the valve body. Thanks, Dave

Can this be installed upside down and have off on the right side when looking at it?

Before installing this unit I asked the owner if the hot was on the left and the cold was on the right to make sure. It is an older house and I wanted to make sure. Yes hot on left I was told. After installing cold comes out hot side and hot comes out cold side, with off on the right side when looking at it.I rotated the rotation stop all the way open and sure enough the cold got colder. I crawled under the house and followed the lines from where they are connected to the main lines, The cold is run up the hot side and the hot is run up the cold side. Since the hot service line is run up the cold side and the cold service line is run up the hot side how could it be possible to have been hot on left and cold on right before the new installation. I have been in construction for over 30 years and I am not considering myself a plumber but I have done my share of plumbing.
Asked by: M
Dear M, Than you for your question. If you are getting reversed water flow from hot and cold, we would advised removing the cartridge assembly and rotating it 180 degrees and reinstalling it back in the valve. This would correct the reversed water flow you are having. Best regards, Tanya

i HAVE WATER COMING OUT THE SHOWER HEAD WHEN I AM FILLING THE TUB. THIS IS A NEW INSTALLATION. I CHANGED OUT THE CARTRIDGE AND THAT DIDN'T WORK WHAT

Asked by: ANTHONY'S PLUMBING
Dear Anthony's Plumbing, Thank you for your inquiry! What you are experiencing is called shower-rise. Someone has made an installation error in your wall. Here are the four things to check. 1. The distance between the center of the valve body to the center of the tub spout must be between 8 and 18 inches. 2. You must use straight ½” copper or ½” iron piping for the piping down to the tub spout. No PVC piping, PEX piping, drop ear elbows or shark fittings are allowed for the piping going to the tub spout. 3. You can only use one 90 degree elbow with the piping going to the tub spout. There should be no shark or gator bite fitting for the elbow connection. 4. The main valve body must be installed right side up. https://www.deltafaucet.com/service-parts/faq#answer-c3ad508e-2cd4-4b5a-8af5-3f75cacd1f90 Best regards, Tanya

how to open and instal rp46463 in to r10000unbx

Asked by: shahpour kazemi
Hi, shahpour kazemi! Thank you for your question. To install the valve cartridge assembly into the MultiChoice Universal R10000-UNBX, first turn the water supply off for the unit. Remove the temperature knob and cover. Remove the volume handle. Unscrew the bonnet nut. Once this is all removed, the valve cartridge assembly can be pulled straight out. Remove the adapter assembly from the back of the valve body. Reinstall new parts. Best Regards, Rosanna

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. SK
Asked by: SK
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

Asked by: Nick
Hi Nick, Thank you for your question. You will need the R10000-UNBXHF rough to go with the T17T253 shower trim, the R11000 diverter rough to go with the T11953 diverter trim, a 50570 wall elbow for the 55530 hand shower and a shower arm and shower arm flange to go with your other showerhead choice.

Why is there a minimum (8") drop to tub spout ?

I understand that a maximum 18" drop to the tub spout is to prevent shower rise, But why a minimum drop ? If the tub path is open through the tub spout why wouldn't the water correctly flow to the tub only ? Can you explain the reason for the 8" minimum requirement ?
Asked by: idler
Dear Idler, Thank you for you question. The Delta Tub/Shower faucets require a minimum of 8-16" drop for the tub spout installation, so not to cause a shower rise install issue. This is when 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. Anything less the 8" or more than 16" will cause Shower Rise. https://www.deltafaucet.com/service-parts/faq/faq-tablist-area/tabularlist/bath/faq-item-21#answer-c3ad508e-2cd4-4b5a-8af5-3f75cacd1f90 Best regards, Tanya

R10000-UNBX VS R10000-UNWS

If a trim recommend R10000-UNBX, can I use R10000-UNWS instead?
Asked by: Chris
Hi Chris, The R10000-UNBX and the R10000-UNWS are completely interchangeable. The only difference between the two is that the R10000-UNWS has screwdriver stops which allow the user to be able to turn the water off to the valve for maintenance without having to turn the water off to the entire home.

What Rough-in Valve Should I Use for a Tub Only Installation

I want to install a tub only with no shower. What is the best rough-in valve to use?
Asked by: AKDolFan
Hi AKDolFan, Thank you for your question! We do not have a rough-in valve specifically designed for a tub-only-application. However, any R10000 valve except for the HF (High Flow) versions will work as a tub-only installation. You will simply need to cap the top port of the valve. http://www.deltafaucet.com/search/results.html?q=R10000 Best regards, Jon

I have a tub/shower combo and am installing Ashlyn shower head, tub spout and diverter along with a hand shower. Can I have the diverter control all three with no diverter on the tub spout? If so, Which trim and valves do I need? Just R1000 - UNBX?

Asked by: TinaO
Hello TinaO, Thank you for your question. When installing a custom Ashlyn shower head, hand shower and tub spout, you must have a diverter on the tub spout for the water to divert up to the other installed showering units. The tub spout can only be connected to the bottom port of the R10000-UN and the shower head and hand shower should be connected to the R11000 to and right side port of the diverter valve.

what valve would you recommend to get full pressure on a T17438 and a 58480 hand shower?

Asked by: Jasonjj
Thank you for your question, Jasonjj! The R10000-UNBX would be an appropriate rough-in valve. We only have one other valve that will produce a higher flow rate, model R10000-UNBXHF which does not have tub spout port in order to provide more pressure to the shower arm. This could be used with model T17238 instead if you do not need a tub spout. https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/product/R10000-UNBXHF https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/product/T17238 Best regards, Edward
