What is the difference between R10000-UNWS and R10000-UNBX valves?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # R10000-UNWS includes screwdriver stops on the valve to allow the user to turn the water off at the valve for servicing. If the model has an HF in it, then it means High Flow and can only be used on a shower only application.

can you list the trims available with this rough valve.
Thank you for your inquiry! Any shower-only trim kit that we currently make will work with the Delta MultiChoice Universal High-Flow Rough-In Valve R10000-UNBXHF.

No hot water
I have the Delta R10000-UNBXHF Multichoice Universal Shower Only Valve installed along with the shower Delta Faucet T14286-SHQ Arzo. Everything works fine except the hot water is not hot enough even when the handle is fully turned into the hot area as indicated by the dots. What in the Multichoice Universal Shower Only Valve needs to be adjusted to have more hot water?
Hi Chandra, Thank you for your question. Your T14286-SHQ faucet has a cartridge that is equipped with a rotational limit stop. The rotational limit stop allows you to set the max hot water temperature on your faucet. Here is a link to a how to adjust the rotational limit stop video.

R10000-UNBXHF Back to Back install
When the product mentions back to back capable does that mean two valves for two separate shower heads? Does the provided install instructions provide information on this type of set up. We want two separate shower heads one for her, one for me. :) Will I be needing two separate valves? Thank you
Thank you for your question. The back-to-back instructions are for installations in which the hot and cold supplies are on the opposite side. To run two shower heads, you can use an R11000 rough-in valve and a corresponding 3-Setting Diverter Trim Kit. This will allow you to divert water to either shower head or both.
The volume and temperature will be controlled by the R10000-UNBXHF valve.

R10000-UNBXHF used only as a 'shower' component?
You make it very clear that there is a plug in the HF version for the tub spout. Please confirm that if you are ONLY using this valve for a TUB, not a shower, can you still use the HF valve and use the shower port for the tub port?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # R10000-UNBXHF can only be used in a shower only application. It cannot be used in a tub only application or a tub/shower combination.

Does Delta R10000-UNBXHF Multichoice Universal Shower Only Valve Body contain an anti scald valve?
Thank you for your question, Eric! While the valve itself does not, all Delta trim kits will come with a pressure balance or thermostatic cartridge.

Will hot and cold water mix if trim is not installed immediately?
I am adding an additional bathroom, with shower, to our home. There will be some delay between the time the shower is roughed-in and when the trim is installed. During this time, will the valve body allow the hot and cold water in our home to inter-mix? Do I need to purchase a "WS" model instead?
Hi Deacon Joe,
Thank you for your question! With the valve installed by itself, the hot and cold water will mix, which can result in cross-flow. You can prevent this by installing the cartridge from the trim kit. If you do not have the trim kit yet, you can purchase and install a test plug, RP46079. Alternatively, you can purchase a "WS" version of the R10000, which will allow you to shut off the supplies directly at the valve.

Difference between high flow and regular roughin?
I recently built a house. We had a custom shower installed complete with a rain head and wall mount intuition. When both fixtures are selected on the diverter the pressure to both is noticibly reduced. I found out your regular rough in was used instead of a high flow. First, will the high flow make a difference in this situation? Second, is the high flow roughin simply a different cartridge or would I need to change the whole roughin to receive the benefits of the high flow roughin?
Thank you for your question. The High-Flow version of the rough-in will provide more flow using the same cartridge. The increase in flow will depend on the trim kit that you use and the water pressure in the home.
Below are approximate flow rates at 60 PSI.
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
NOTE: Flow rates will be further diminished by the diverter valve.
