I am building a custom shower in our new home. I would like to have 2 independent rain heads. A regular shower head. 4 Body sprays on one circuit, and a hand shower. What would be the best arraingment of valves to make this work. Thanks in advance.
Hi there Bill,
Thank you for your question. To install your 2 independent raincan shower heads, a regular shower head, 4 Body sprays on one circuit, and a hand shower you would need two of the Delta MultiChoice Rough-In Valve R10000-UNHF and two of the Delta Delta 3 / 6-Setting Diverter Rough-In Valves R11000.

HOW MANY GPM WILL A R10000UN VALVE PRODUCE WITH 50PSI CITY PRESSER?
Thank you for your question, Rudy. The flow rate will depend on the series of trim that you use. Here are the approximate flow rates from the shower port at 50 PSI:
14 series - 5.1 GPM
17 series - 5.4 GPM
17T series - 6.7 GPM

3 separate functions for a 3 setting diverter?
can a 3 way diverter be used for 3 separate units? For say a wall mount head, hand held wand and a rain head out of the cieling? Only functioning individually I presume? Would a six way allow for more than one to function at a time then?
HI Sarah, Thank you for your question!
The 3 setting cartridge only controls two components. Meaning both of the units would run by themselves and then both together. If you have a total of 3 components hooked up you would need the 6 setting cartridge. The 6 settings would run each item individually and then two shared at a time.

3/6 rough diverter with 2 shower heads and tub spout
I was told to purchase the 3/6 rough diverter plus universal rough valve to use in my tub/shower with a fixed shower head, a hand held and the tub spout. When I went to purchase the trim kits I was told by the plumbing house that I have installed the wrong diverter - that it will not do what I want and may be troublesome. Can you advise? I wanted to be able to use any two of these together or alone: shower A, shower B, Tub, Shower A & Shower B, Shower A & Tub, Shower B & Tub. Will this be possible with the set-up I now have? Will this cause any problems? I have not yet purchased the tub spout. Can I use a standard spout with diverter just ignore the diverter or do I need the spout without the diverter? Would I be better off replacing the diverter value with a 3 setting diverter? Thanks
I want to be able to use the tub AND hand-held at the same time, not to shut off the tub entirely. Sometimes i would want to use the tub only but not always. Sometimes I want to use both showers at the same time, but not always. I am trying to work it out so I can use any 2 water sources at the same time. How do I do this? Thanks.

Can I change the 3/4 to 1/2 using fitting cause my pipes in bathroom are already 1/2 inch
Thank you for your question, Frank. The valve will have male 1/2" threaded and female 1/2" solder connections. You may use adapters as needed to connect to other types of piping.
Best regards, Jon

With T11853 Diverter trim kit and a 1.8gpm shower head and 1.8 hand shower, if the Diverter is on the shared setting is the combined gpm still 1.8 per California calgreen restriction? If not, is the T11759 2-Setting Diverter the only solution for me?
Hi, Steve K!
Thank you for your question. The flow rate will be primarily determined by the main valve and trim that you use (R10000 + 13/14, 17, or 17T trim). The approximate maximum flow rate from the diverter valve at 60 PSI is:
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
At 80 PSI the flow rate is increased by approximately 1 GPM.
These are the maximum total flow rates from the diverter valve in a shared position.
The maximum flow from an individual diverter port is limited to 5 to 6 gallons per minute, depending on pressure and the trim series chosen.

can the R11000 with 6 function trim be used with a tub spout, a showerhead and a hand held ?
The tub filler is piped through a vacuum breaker then to an integral spout on the waste and overflow. Piping to the filler is from the right side outlet of the diverter.( three o'clock position ) Pex is used from the diverter to the vacuum breaker, then to the integral tub filler. Tub filler is below flood level rim therefore the vacuum breaker.
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # R11000 can be used in the combination that you have decribed. However due to the use of PEX and the vacuum breaker, you may experience lower flow through the tub spout. We also recommend that you do not use a tub spout with a diverter on it.

Is R11000 legal in California?
Building code in Southern California now allows only one showerhead to be on at a time. Can R11000 be used? What other diverter valves do you offer that are ok in California? I plan to have only 2 showerheads.
Thank you very much,
Thank you for your question! You can use the R11000 rough-in valve with a non-shared cartridge to eliminate the shared setting. The 2-Function Non-Shared Diverter Cartridge is RP71717, which can be used with a 3-setting diverter trim.

I am purchasing the R11000, and a 6 position trim kit, do I have to purchase the cartridge separately or is it included?
Thank you for your question. The 6-Setting Diverter Trim kit, of your choice, will come with the RP51919 diverter cartridge assembly needed for your install.

I plugged left side of reverted did I do wrong will not devert to hand held
Hi, Len B!
Thank you for your question. If you have a 3-setting diverter assembly, we recommend to use only the left and top port of the R11000 and plug the right port. If you've plugged the left port instead, we do recommend to either replumb this or you may purchase a 6-setting diverter cartridge, RP51919. You will have 3 blank settings but the 3 settings needed will work. Here is a link to the part:

I purchased the Delta T17453 Tub/Shower trim kit and would like to add a handshower. Do I need T11953+R11000 to get the handshower function
I understand that model T11953 is the appropriate one to allow the flow of water to be diverted from the shower head and spout to the handheld shower. Let me know if this is correct.
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # R11000 diverter rough and T11853 diverter trim is needed if you are going to add a handshower only to your Delta Faucet model # T17453.
If you are going to add another device, like body sprays or a raincan handshower, then you would use the T11953 diverter trim.
You will also need a wall supply elbow like the 50570 for your handshower.

Pex between universal valve and 3/6 diverter ok?
My system is PEX. Hand shower & rainhead installation. I'm roughing in the universal valve and 3/6 diverter. Instructions say to sweat copper from universal valve top outlet to bottom inlet on diverter. Is there any reason I cannot use PEX for this connection? I understand the reasons for using copper between valve and a tub spout in a tub shower combination, but this is shower only. Side question, the supplied brass plug on the diverter is meant to be sweated in, correct? Thanks!
Thank you for your questions! You may use PEX tubing between the R10000 and R11000 valves. The cap is designed to be sweat into the right port of the valve for 3 setting applications.

I've had the R11000 diverter valve for about 5 years. Just recently the main shower head has lost about 1/2 of the normal pressure. The body sprays may have even increased pressure. What do you suggest to get the pressure up to normal on the shower head?
Thank you for your question. Normally, if getting a low pressure from a shower head, you may need to removed, check and clean the shower head and/or internal screen.

How can I install 2 shower heads?
I have installed a rain shower head on the ceiling but now want to install a regular shower head as well while being able to control them both separately? Please give a detailed explanation. Thank you for your help!
Thank you for your question. To be able to use another showerhead either with your raincan showerhead or by itself, you will need the R11000 diverter rough with the appropriate 3-setting 2-port diverter trim to match your trim on your existing valve. This way either the showerhead or raincan showerhead can be used indepently or together at the same time.

Shower head combo
I've replace our bathtub with a shower only and I would like to install a main shower head/wand combo (584-70-SS, In2ition) and a rain shower head (T17253-SS kit). I want the ability to run them separately or together. I already purchase the T17253-SS the 584-70-SS which came with no trim) and a R10000-UNBX rough in valve, I am not sure what else I need? Please let me know what other products I need to purchase and also a little guidance as to the plumbing from valve to both shower heads.
Hi DIY Brian, Thank you for your question. You will want to order the R11000 diverter rough and the T11853-SS diverter trim along with a RP6023SS shower arm and RP51034SS flange for the 58470-SS to complete your faucet. You will plumb the diverter rough from the shower port on the R10000 after capping off the tub spout port. You will then cap off the 3 o-clock port on the R11000 diverter rough and plumb the showerheads out of the remaining 9 and 12 o-clock ports. The 3 setting diverter will allow you to operate each showerhead individually or both at the same time.

Would the valve operate if differently if the water was plumbed into one of the outlet ports?
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the valve would not work correctly. Only the bottom port may be used as a water inlet.

Can this mixing valve be used with the 2 shower head , sprayer and tub spicket
Thank you for your question, René! The R11000 diverter mixing valve will allow you to switch between either three or six settings depending on the cartridge used, however we do not recommend directing water to a tub spout from this valve as that should be connected to the R10000-UNBX multichoice valve directly for best results. Please contact us if you have questions or need any further assistance.
Best regards, Edward

Is there any difference in quality between Delta products carried by home depot and other plumbing supply houses?
Hi Gmd, Thank you for your question. If the model number of the product in this case R11000 is the same, the product is the same whether purchased through Home Depot or a plumbing supply house.

My water supply lines comes in from the top. For space reasons, can I turn the 3/6 setting rough diverter upside down to have the "in" line attached on top? What other changes need to be made to accommodate this change for T11900 6 setting trim?
Thank you for your question. The Delta R11000 is a diverter valve. The bottom port will need to be plumbed to the Delta MultiChoice Universal R10000 rough valve body. The Delta R10000 rough valve will be the valve body that the hot and cold lines would be plumbed to. This leaves 3 ports on the R11000 for up to three shower components such as shower heads, hand showers, rain can shower heads, and body sprays.

I am looking to install a 3 head system (shower head, handheld, and rain head). I want to be able to have 1. the shower run alone, 2. shower with handheld or 3. shower with rain head. Do I use this 6/3 diverter and what else for rough in?
Thanks for your question! To run three shower heads, we recommend using an R10000 Rough-In Valve with a Shower Trim Kit (13/14, 17, or 17T series) and an R11000 Diverter Rough-In Valve with a matching Diverter Trim Kit. A 6-Setting Diverter Trim Kit will allow you to operate the shower heads individually or any two of them together.
Best regards, Jon

can a shower diverter be put into a 2 1/2 inch wall?
Thank you for your question. The back of the valve must be 2 3/4" from the finished wall. This would mean that the valve and piping would need to fit within the hole of the wall using elbows. A standard diverter trim escutcheon plate is 4 1/2". If you can work around these specifications, it should work. Please click the links below for more details.

If I have a tub with a hand held shower option and plan to use the trim with diverter, do I need a spout with a pull up diverter?
Thank you for you inquiry, Vince6501! Unfortunately, we do not recommend connecting a tub spout assembly to the Delta 3/6 Setting Diverter Rough-In R11000 valve, due to the flow rate required to fill a standard tub. The tub spout assembly should be connected to the bottom port of the main MultiChoice Universal Rough-In R10000-UNBX valve assembly. The diverter on the tub spout would divert the water to the R11000 valve.

Need diverter to work shower head and hand held together and each seperately is this possible with a 3 way
Thank you for your question. Yes, the Delta 3 / 6-Setting Diverter R11000 valve can be used with any 3 Setting trim kit for the functions/features you are wanting.

Diverter for non-diverter tub spout, handheld shower, wall shower
Can we use all three pots on R11000 for non-diverter tub spout, Handheld shower, and wall shower? I initially thought R22000 could be the best option for the application but it appears that the 3-port from R22000 is not suitable for tub spout. Can I use R11000 instead? Thanks
Thank you for your question. We do not recommend a non-diverter tub spout to be plumbed on a R11000 diverter assembly. We recommend to purchase a diverter tub spout and plumb the diverter tub spout to the valve body, R10000, not the diverter body, R11000.

Will my R10000-UNBX Work?
I am plumbing a shower with four body sprays. The rough in recommended for my shower head was the R10000-UNBX. From what I understand I can use this rough in (with the 6 oclock capped) then run the 12 o clock port to a R11000 3/6 diverter rough and then to my body sprays and showerhead. Is this correct?
Hi Greg, Thank you for your question. Your description is correct you can cap off the tub spout port on the R10000-UNBX and then plumb to the R11000 diverter rough from the 12 o-clock/shower port.
Another option is to use the R10000-UNBXHF high flow rough that does not have the 6 o-clock port at all and increases the flow rate to the shower port over the R10000-UNBX.

My designer ordered diverter rough #R11000, 3 setting 2-port diverter trim #T11874-22 and 2 setting non-shared diverter cartridge #RP71717. The plumber did not put in the diverter cartridge--should he have done so? Should he and what does it do?
Hi, Paula J!
Thank you for your question. The Delta T11874-SS does come with a diverter valve cartridge, RP51918 that has two individual settings and one shared setting. The RP71717 offers two individual settings only. Either one will work with the Delta T11874-SS, but at least one will have to be installed into the R11000 diverter rough.

What size hole is required in the finished wall?
What sized hole do I need to have cut in my finished wall tile to allow for enough room for the diverter to function?
Also what is the maximum sized hole that trim will cover?
This is with an r11000
Thank you for your questions. Included here is the spec sheet for Delta Faucet model # R11000. While we do not recommend that you cut your holes until you have the product in hand, we understand that sometimes it is necessary. The spec sheet should help.

If you incorrectly plug the left side outlet port of a R1100 diverter will the three function diverter trim kit still work?
Thank you for your question. When only using a 3 setting application the right port of the R11000 diverter valve has to be capped, otherwise the second unit connected to the diverter valve will not work, unless a 6 function non-shared diverter cartridge RP71718.

Can you suggest a wrench to remove the bonnet nut ?
My diverter rough is set inside the tile ( image ), I need to remove the bonnet nut but none of the shower socket wrench fits the bolt. I have limited space and cannot use other pliers. Any suggestions ?
Thank you for your question.
We would suggest trying bigger pliers to remove the bonnet nut if you don't have room to use a strap wrench.

How do I control hot/cold water and on/off?
I bought the 11000 to control 2 shower heads. Do I need a 10000 valve to control on/off and hot/cold functions?
yes....the r11000 only controls wall mount shower or handheld, or any combination you choose....the r10000unbx controls temperature and volume.
