Installation Information


  • Fittings Type: Universal fittings
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really bad instructions and design You can't use either port for hand held shower. You have to use one on the left side and cap the one on the right. What a joke. Directions give you no heads up. Mud guard very flimsy. Don't waste your time with this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very very bad installation instructions I just installed this valve in a shower. I cannot find in the instructions anywhere that states you cannot use the right side port for the hand held shower. You must use the left side, even if the shower opening is to the left. Then, you have to run your water supply pipe out to the left, back behind valve, and over to the right side. I did not get this until after I spent hours taking apart the diverter insert to see if it could be switched. There is a diagram showing diverter water flow in the manual, but the the manual does not state you can't use right side port. So of course you want to trouble shoot to see why. Second, the plastic cover is indeed very flimsy. Third, you have to install nipples into the drop ears and cap them off to install the testing plugs. There is no viable mud guard for tile installation. So if you are installing this item, make sure you add many hours to your estimate.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just roughed it in, and not happy with what I see First, there's only two mounting brackets for the rough body itself and they are about an inch apart in the center of the valve. It can not support itself by what is provided and the excess weight of this particular combo valve. On the opposite wall I have a R10000-UNBXHF universal valve that has mounting brackets further apart, and on opposite corners which makes it so much more stable. The R22000 should have at least 4 because of the size and weight. Second, the rough in box, part number RP84875 only has one screw to hold it to the valve body. The trim attaches to the rough in box. ARE YOU KIDDING ?! How stable will the trim be when the rough in box isn't ? Take it from a plumber of 25 years. I've had to improvise to make sure this valve and trim stays on the wall for the next 10 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional diverted and water temperature adjuster Works as advertised. Diverter ports should be labeled to help installer identify better. Instructions are not very clear on identifying ports.

I have a new R22000 Series valve, which cartridges (both diverter and mixing valves) do I order ?

Asked by: Paul
Hi, Paul! Thank you for your question. The cartridges come with the Integrated valve trim kits that are available for the Delta R22000 rough valve. Here are links to these valve trim kits: https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/showering/tub-and-shower-faucets?categories=Delta_Bathroom_Showering_Tub+and+Shower+Faucets_Shower+Valve+with+Diverter Best Regards, Rosanna

In the specs the flow rate is quoted for a 13/14S, 17S and 17T cartridge. Plug these numbers into your search bar and nothing comes up. What are they, and more specifically which one (if any) is the T27959 series 17 valve trim?

Asked by: NH_Al
Hi NH_Al, Thank you for your question. The (17S) 17 Series are the model styles that controls volume and water temperature independently with two separate main handles for more refined control of your shower experience. The (17T) 17T Series are the Thermostatic model styles, they also have separate volume and temperature independently moving controls that allows a more precise hot and cold water flow. The (13/14S) 13 and 14 Series are the model styles with a single main lever handle controlling temperature only, with one constant volume. The Delta Contemporary 6-Setting Valve Trim T27959 is a 17 Series kit. Best regards, Tanya

You say this can't be used with a tub. Why can't the left port be used for a tub? Specs show at least 4.7gpm (40psi) fill rate. If I can't use it with a tub what Delta products would you suggest for a tub, shower head plus hand held shower combo?

Asked by: NH_Al
Hello NH_Al, Thank you for your question. The Delta MultiChoice Universal Integrated Shower and Diverter Rough-In R22000 valve is not designed to be used with a tub spout. However, you may connect a non-diverter tub spout to one of the diverter ports as a temperature tester. Since the flow rate from the spout would be lower than a standard installation, we do not recommended to use it as a tub filler. Alternatively, you can install an R10000 and R11000 valve with corresponding trim kits. The tub spout should be connected to the bottom port of an R10000 valve to provide sufficient flow to fill a tub. https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/product/R10000-UNBX https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/product/R11000 Best regards, Tanya

what's the difference between R22000 and R22000WS I am trying to decide which one I need to purchase.

Asked by: MICHELLE0722
Thank you for your question, MICHELLE0722! The model R22000-WS includes screwdriver stops on the valve itself and the R22000 does not. These shut off stops allow you to turn the water off to the entire valve for any easy maintenance or repairs that may be needed. Best regards, Edward

Should this work for a single showerhead and handheld shower unit? After hooking it up it will only run the showerhead or both at the same time.  It will not run the hand held unit on its own.

Asked by: Tbest4475
Hello Tbest4475, Thank you for your inquiry! When installing the Delta Integrated Rough-In Valve R22000 with a 3-setting diverter trim, only the top and left ports will be in use. If you are only using two ports, one for your shower head and one for your hand shower, you must plug the right port. If the left port was capped off instead, you can purchase just the 6 setting diverter cartridge, RP51919, so that all of your setting will work with your existing trim. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP51919 Best regards, Tanya

Does this shower work with an instant hot water heater?

Asked by: sole
Hello Sole, Thanks for your question. It may take a moment for the heated water to reach the valve and clear out any cooled water from the shower pipe. Also, a tankless water heater may not begin heating the water at low volumes, requiring more of the hot supply to be mixed in before the water gets hot. Please check with the manufacturer if the heater needs to be adjusted to activate at lower flow rates. If you have an on-demand or tankless water heater, it may need to be adjusted so that it activates with less flow. We also recommend lowering the temperature of the hot water in your home if it is above 120 degrees. Best regards, Tanya

How can I install a water hammer arrester to this valve? Usually they face upwards and the outlets 2, 3 are in the way. Thanks.

Asked by: Amir Saad
Hello Amir, Thank you for your question. We do not recommended installing a water hammer system with the Delta Integrated Rough-In Valve R22000-WS. The upper outlets are for shower heads, hand showers and/or body sprays/jets. Best regards, Tanya

Are extra fittings required for PEX installation? Is 1/2 or 3/4" supply recommended?

Asked by: Bryan
Hi, Bryan! Thank you for your question. The Delta MultiChoice R22000-WS will need 1/2" connections. PEX supplies will need proper adapters for installation. Best Regards, Rosanna
