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...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rough-in Valve - Stop Valve Our master bath is now remodeled. Thé valve seems to be working properly. It has a stop valve. Should we ever have issues with the spray or handle, the water can be turned off without affecting the kitchen and main bath. As far as water flow, I use a hand held spray; and, it works well for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what needs to be done. I purchased this, actually I purchased two of them because I am redoing two bathrooms. I had no idea about needing valves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Second Fail in Less Than Four Years My first experience with this valve was a total fail. I had the unfortunate experience of receiving a defective part. Delta was great about sending me a replacement at no cost. That one worked well for three years. Over time, less and less water comes through. If I push it all the way to cool, I get lots of water, when I mix in the hot water, it slows to a trickle. Time to contact Delta again. I'm confident that they will send me a replacement valve again (it has a lifetime warranty), but I will still need to get a plumber out here.

One of the sides on this product leaked. There must have been a defect in the threading. Could not move on with remodel due to time wasted on this. Other valves were fine and had no leaks.

The temperature of the shower control is spot on every time.....LOVE MY PURCHASES!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When I ordered the fixtures I didn't understand why I needed this so since it stated you need it, I got it. When the plumber came it was a good thing I had since my old was wasn't going to work with my new fixtures. It works great!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works this unit is an ON/OFF valve and HOT/COLD mixing valve, had it for 4 months in 3 apartments no problems at all. However, you must know Delta has a scalding water STOP on these and if you want really hot water you must adjust the STOP otherwise you will get warm water instead of HOT water. This goes well with R11000 Delta, I wanted to be able to use just the wall shower or just the rain shower(overhead) or both at same time. This valve allows that to happen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outstanding valve, but... This unit was installed in a newly remodeled shower. It does a wonderful job of retaining the desired temperature by having separate mixing and shutoff controls. My, and the installer's only complaint is the instructions that came with it were vague on the correct method for assembling the internals, resulting in a couple hours of trial and error assembly and disassembly to get the correct position for consistent hot water. Once the correct assembly was discovered, it has worked wonderfully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD QUALITY VALVE We had this valve installed when our bath remodel was done. It replaced a dual handle diverter valve . We are very pleased with the quality and performance of the valve. It operates smoothly and is much easier to use than the old diverter valve. The Service Stops are handy as well. We highly recommend this valve. In fact we will be remodeling a second bath soon and plan to use the same model valve.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from only lasted 16 months I had the R10000-UNBXHF valve body (in conjuction with the T17038-SS Lahara 17 series valve trim) installed 16 months ago and the shower head is now dripping when the valve is turned fully in the off position. I cannot find a rebuild kit on this website for this particular valve body. Does anyone know if a rebuild kit is available?

In a 1-pc. fiberglass shower/tub , what size holes are needed for single lever faucet and tub spout ?

I am installing a 1755rb-716rb set and have to drill holes for valve and spout .
Asked by: Doug
Hi Doug, Thank you for your question! The hole for the valve should be cut to the size of the plaster guard which is 4" x 4". The hole for the size of the tub spout should be at least 1/2" for the pipe to fit through and no larger than the diameter of the tub spout, which is 3 1/8" on this model.

R10000 Rough in Body w/Stops version. (17T)

On either side of the valve body, there are two (2) mechanical stem and nut assemblies. I assume, when turning the stem(s) clockwise, and the stem(s) bottom out, this will stop the flow of water completely. Conversely, if I turn the stem counter-clockwise the flow of water increases. How can I tell, without backing the stem out further than need be, will I get full flow? Instructions say " adjust stem clockwise to close, and counterclockwise to open". I'm not sure if I understand the purpose of these stops. Thanks
Asked by: Rick
Hi Rick, Thank you for your question. These stops are designed to turn the water off directly at the valve during installation or repairs. They should be left in the open position when the trim is installed, as the cartridge will be used to turn the water on and off. Best regards, Jon

Can I exceed the 18 inch max distance from valve to tub spout

I will be mounting a tub spout very near the floor of a shower stall and a rain head from the ceiling. I want to use the spout to drain the pipe to shower head and to let water warm up before diverting flow to rain head. The distance from valve to tub spout will be about 36 inches (3 times the max). Should I increase the size of the spout supply to 3/4 to reduce pressure so I don't have water flow through rain head until diverter is closed.
Asked by: Jon
Dear Jon, Thank you for your question. When using the Delta MultiChoice Universal Rough-In valve R10000-UN, the length between the valve and the tub spout has to be between 8"-18". If it is more than 18", you will have a situation called shower rise where water comes out of the showerhead when you only have the tub spout running. Best regards, Tanya

How do I determine which style valve I need (R10000-???)

Replacing existing rough valve that broke (moron who installed originally did not use stringer to support, valve just hung in mid-air by copper tubing). I have copper 1/2" tubing w/ soldered connections, Delta T13 Series Tub & Shower. Access to the back of valve through 2x4 framed wall w/ drywall. Fiberglass one-piece tub/shower.
Asked by: Craig
Thank you for your question. Since you are mounting this on a fiberglass shower, we would recommend using the R10000-UNWSBXT for a thin wall mounting.

What cartridges can be used for the valve';

Asked by: Dmead009
Hi Dmead009, Thank you for your question. The R10000-UN multichoice universal rough uses our 13/14 series cartridge RP46074, our 17 series dual function cartridge RP46463, and our 17T thermostatic cartridge RP47201. You need the appropriate trim that matches each cartridge. Thanks, Dave

I have the R10000-UNWS (with stops). After rough-in and cartridge, how far out to I need to unscrew the stops? I am getting low flow and wondering if I didn't unscrew them far enough, but I was worried they would come out of the body. Or do they stop?

Asked by: Hugh
Hi, Hugh! Thank you for your question. The screw stops on the R10000-UNWS will stop turning when fully open. You can turn the stops clockwise up to three full turns from the open position without a noticeable reduction in flow. Best Regards, Rosanna

What is considered the "finished wall" for installing a Delta R10000 Multi Choice value in an acrylic walk in shower unit??

For installing with a MAXX shower unit, the plasterguard should be flushed with the acrylic wall section (that is, the same as if you were installing with a tiled wall)?
Asked by: Jerry67
Hi Jerry67, Thank you for your question. That is correct! The finished wall will be the final surface after everything is installed. The acrylic wall section would be considered the finished wall in your installation. Best regards, Jon

Selecting valve for Trinsic 17 shower, UN or UNBX or UNWS

What are the differences between UN and UNBX valves? Also considering UNWS and possible advantage of stops.
Asked by: Chuck
Hi Chuck, Thank you for your question. There is no difference between the R10000-UN and R10000-UNBX. The R10000-UN is sold in case quantities of 12 pieces only. The R10000-UNBX can be purchased individually. The advantage of using the R10000-UNWS is that if you need to work on or service the tub/shower faucet you will be able to shut off the water supply at the faucet and not have to shut off the water to the rest of the house. Thanks, Dave
