What is highest flow valve for filling a bathtub
What is the rate, gallons/minute of each Delta valve?
Thank you for your question, Karen. The R10000-UNBX valve is the highest flow rate for the tub spout. The actual flow rate will depend on the water pressure in the home and the trim series that you install. Here are the flow rates from this valve (tub spout port) at 60 PSI:
14 Series: 6.0 GPM
17 Series: 6.2 GPM
17T Series: 7.8 GPM
Date published: 2017-11-03
What is the GPM flow rate of the R10000-UNBX rough in valve. I believe this takes the RP46463 cartridge assembly.
Thank you for your question. The Delta MultiChoice R10000-UNBX rough in valve will not determine the flow rate. The trim kit that is selected to be installed with the rough in valve will include the valve cartridge assembly and will determine the flow rate for the unit.

Is the valve delta r 10000 ,same as delta valve masco asse 1016?
Thank you for your question, Erio! The Delta MultiChoice Universal Rough-In Valve R1000-UNBX is currently the only shower and tub/shower valve we manufacture. The ASSE1016MASCO is a plumbing code printed on several of our showering parts.

Stops touch escutcheon
The valve stops stick out, blocking the escutcheon from screwing tight to the shower surround. Is there a shallow escutcheon plate or spacer that will fix this?
Thank you for your question! Please make sure that the plaster guard is flush (or up to 3/8" sub flush) with the finished wall.
If the valve is out too far, you may turn the stops 3 turns in from the full open position without a noticeable reduction of flow. This will provide an additional 1/8” of clearance for the escutcheon.

What is the absolute narrowest stud spacing for me to install the Delta shower valve?
Thank you for your question, Rivermn. This valve is about 4" wide and will require supplies on the hot and cold side. You will need enough room for the plumbing connections and or elbows. Here is a link to the instructions for more information:

my brother has a new shower and the handle on the valve trim will only turn a quarter of the way. He gets very little hot water
Could he need the temperature limit stop adjusted. Or could something else cause this
Hi Iku1, Thank you for your question. The motion of the handle will run from 3 o-clock (off) to 12 o-clock (full on). The faucet is equipped with a rotational limit stop where you set how hot the water can get. I have attached a link to a video to show you how to make this adjustment.

I have a R100000-UNBX for a shower only installation. Can I just plug the tub outlet at the valve? Or do I need to exchange it for a UNBXH?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model R10000-UNBX can be used for a shower only application by pluggin the tub port. Model number R10000-UNBXHF is for shower only applications and if you would like higher flow from your valve. If you already have the R10000-UNBX, you can use it for a shower only application.

Is the model number printed on the valve somewhere?
My contractor has installed a Delta shower control valve as part of my bathroom remodel, but I can't tell which model it is, and want to know which shower/tub faucet combos I can consider. In particular, I like the Leland T14478-LHP H777 because I want a single porcelain lever. Which control valves will work with that faucet set? I've tried to look for a model number on the installed valve but don't know where to look or what distinguishes one from the other.
Thank you for your question. The model number is not printed anywhere on our valves. If your contractor recently installed your Delta valve, it is a very good possibility that it is the R10000 series and the trim you are looking at will work just fine. In fact, with the R10000 series, you can change the trim as often as you like from the 1300/1400 to the 1700 series without going into the wall to change the valve.

Delta MultiChoice Valves
I am building 2 bathrooms and am looking at Delta faucets, etc. However, I have been warned to stay away from plumbing fixtures that have plastic pieces. Can you tell me if there is any plastic in the multichoice shower valve and what type of cartridge does the valve have? Ceramic, the new DST? Thank you.
Hi bkj03, The R10000 multichoice universal rough is made of brass. The rough will take our RP46074 single function pressure balanced cartridge, the RP46463 dual function pressure balanced cartridge, and the RP47201 dual function thermostatic cartridge. The cartridges use polymer seals, they are not ceramic.

I would like to know if this product will fit any Delta shower trim kit, or even a trim kit from another manufacturer like Kohler or Moen in case I want to change the trim in the future. Also, will this product work with a combination showerhead/handheld
Thank you for your question. The Delta MultiChoice Universal R10000-UNWS rough valve body works with any of our Delta 13/14, 17, and 17T series trim kits. We cannot guarantee that they will fit with other brand trim kits. The valve body does work with both shower head and tub spout installations.

Tankless/On Demand Water Heater Compatible?
We are looking on upgrading our water heater to some type of tankless style. Will this valve still operate properly with a tankless water heater? Have you had any issues/concerns with these installs?
Hi Kayla, Thank you for your question. The R10000-UNBX multichoice universal rough will not have any issues with a tankless water heater. We recommend using the valve with our 13/14 series trims with a single function pressure balanced cartridge or our 17 series trims with a dual function pressure balanced cartridge when using a tankless water heater.

Does cartridge RP46074 fit MultiChoice R10000-UNWS roughin?
I bought a R10000-UNWS Delta Rough in with stops, and a trim kit T13291-LHD. The box of the trim kit says it fits multichoice universal valve.
However, the cartridge type that came with the trim kit is RP46074 that has "longer lower housing". The extra length will cause the handle to be more than 4 inches away from the finished wall (which looks ugly) if we follow the instructions to install it such that the plaster guard of the multichoice roughin is flush with the finished wall. It seems that the plaster guard should be about 1 inch subflush with the finished wall.
My question: Did I get the wrong cartridge, or are the multichoice valve instructions obsolete, or have I misunderstood it? Any advice is appreciated!
Thank you for your question Wei!
RP46074 is the correct cartridge for the Multichoice R10000-UNWS valve and the plasterguard should be flush or subflush 1/4" to the finished wall according to the installation manual. Distance from the stringer to the front of the plasterguard is 2-3/4" ± 1/4" (70 mm ± 6 mm). Distance from the stringer to the front of the bonnet is intended to be 3 7/8" (99 mm.) This is for reference only. If you need further assistance with this installation you can call us directly at 1-800-345-3358.
Best regards, Edward

Do I use the R10000-UN valve body with a Tub-only, non-diverter, spout?
I planned to purchase a tub spout #RP54323 (non-diverter) and T14051 Value. Do I use the R10000-UN value with this combination?
Thank you for your question! This valve will work with a tub-only installation. The installer will simply need to cap off the top port.

I have 1/2 copper supply behind my wall. If I want control shower head, tub spout, and shower wand from a diverter, would I use this R10000 along with the R11000 and a non diverting tub spout?
Thank you for your question. We do recommend to install the R10000 MultiChoice valve body with a R11000 Diverter valve body to connect a shower head and hand shower. We recommend to install a diverter tub spout to the bottom port of the R10000 MultiChoice valve body. You will then be able to divert the water from the tub spout to the R11000 diverter assembly.

Help with R10000-UNWS valve assembly
I am doing the marble in my bath. I do not have the black plastic piece that comes with this valve. Don't know if plumber lost it or it got trashed. Is it possible for me to purchase this part from you folks? Please reply this will hold up entire job. Thank you
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # R10000-UNWS contains a plasterguard that is used in aiding the installation of your faucet. It is not necessary to the functionality of the faucet. If you would like to replace it, the replacement part number is RP46075.

I have installed a R1000-unws. Regarding to the stops, how do you know what full open is ?

I have the MultiChoice R10000-UNBX installed, but my cartridge, RP19804, does not seem to work. After I put it in, I can't turn the water off.
With the R10000-UNBX, you will need to use the updated Multi Choice cartridge. The new cartridge that is the equivalent of your current cartridge is part number RP46074. If you are going to be purchasing a new trim kit to go with the new valve, a new cartridge will come in that trim kit.

Can you use "Pex" products with this valve
I am using PEX product to install a shower up to the shower controls
Thank you for your question. PEX products can be used with Delta Faucet model # R10000-UNBX but not between the valve and the tub spout. The only things you can use between the valve and the tub spout are copper pipe or iron pipe.
If you use PEX in between those two points, you will get shower rise where water comes out of the showerhead when you are using the tub only.

I am wanting to convert my single handle Price Pfister tub & shower set to a delta. Which universal adapter would I need for this and would it also be possible to choose a set which has the separate temp control when my current one is not that type?
Hi Patti, Thank you for your interest in our products. There is no way to adapt/convert another brand of faucet into a Delta. You would have to change the rough in behind the wall as well. The R10000UNWSBXT is one of our multichoice universal roughs. Once this rough is installed you can choose any of the Delta tub/shower trims to fit this rough in valve. Our T17 series trims offer separate temperature and volume control and are available in a variety of styles and finishes.

Does the Delta MultiChoice Universal R10000-UNWS rough valve body work with Monitor 1400 series with a RP19804 cartridge?
Thank you for your question. The R10000-UNWS MultiChoice Universal Rough Valve Body takes multiple valve cartridge assemblies. If you purchased a Monitor T13 or T14 Series trim kit, you will need RP46074 (included with the trim kit). The RP19804 will not work/fit into the R10000-UNWS valve.
