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. My plumber said that I would need them and that this brand/type would be the ones for my chosen shower heads. They seemed to be easily installed. He liked them so I like them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware - Lower Flow! Flow rate is closer to 2.0 GPM. Valve, and faucet attachments, all contain more plastic parts than I expected. I will buy Moen for my next bathroom. Moen has less plastic parts.

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. Have to wait until another one is shipped before moving on. Hope the next one is better. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from total gut, down to the studs Master bath remodel....bathroom fixtures could not be more impressive. Looks extremely High End and Delta was the only brand that had a complete matching set for claw foot tub faucet, lavatory sink faucet and shower rain-head and handheld sprayer. 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?

I bought the Delta MultiChoice R10000 Can I use threaded brass fittings for my connections?

Asked by: JB

I need to order the proper fitting in order to install our delta faucet set. I cant figure out the difference between R10000-UNBX and R10000-UN. Also is there a three neck hook-up version?

Asked by: Casey
Hi, Casey! Thank you for your question. The Delta MultiChoice Universal rough valve bodies R10000-UNBX and R10000-UN are the same and have no differences. For a 3 neck hook-up, we recommend to add a diverter valve to the top port to be able to install additional shower units. Best Regards, Rosanna

Can a R-1000RN rough-in valve be used with T17264 and RP77091 to add tub function

Hello, and thanks in advance for your help. Can a R-1000RN rough-in valve be used behind the Aslyn Monitor 17 T17264 trim kit (and using the RP77091 tub spout with diverter) to add a tub function? In other words, will the T17264's dual function cartridge properly insert and function in the R-10000RN rough-in valve? (Dual function = separate pressure control coupled with separate temperature control) Note: I don't think that it's an issue, but my install will also include a Delta R11000 3-function diverter after the R1000UN rough-in valve.
Asked by: garies
Dear Garies, Thank you for your question. The Delta MultiChoice Rough-In R10000-UNBX Valve is recommended to used T17264 (shower only) or the T17464 (tub/shower). The Delta Diverter R11000 Valve would be installed above it. Best Regards, Tanya

What is highest flow valve for filling a bathtub

What is the rate, gallons/minute of each Delta valve?
Asked by: Karen
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 Best regards. Jon

What is the GPM flow rate of the R10000-UNBX rough in valve. I believe this takes the RP46463 cartridge assembly. 

Asked by: Edward
Hi, Edward! 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. Best Regards, Rosanna

Asked by: Erio
