Installation Information


  • Fittings Type: Universal fittings
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great body Constructed very well. Installation was easy to install. A little difficult to get the 3rd output port around the incoming line. Would have been better if the incoming ports were on the top

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great integrated diverter valve I am a 22 year old woman who just happens to be pretty handy and I figured this valve out in about 20 minutes. I'm convinced the people who are complaining about installation instructions are only partially reading or really shouldn't be doing anything that involves trade work... Delta makes the easiest valves to use on the market.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor instructions A simple diagram showing the options for piping would help. I look at the date of the comments below and can’t believe nothing has been done.

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.

What does the WS mean? What is the difference between R22000 and R22000-WS?

Asked by: Jenn
Hi, Jenn! Thank you for your question. The "WS" for the Delta R22000-WS rough valve indicates this unit includes 'stops'. The stops allow to turn the water off at the valve instead of having to turn the water off at the water supply in the home. Best Regards, Rosanna

Will the r22000 valve give me 3 independent ports as i want to have a shower head, separately located hand held and a rainhead. None to be shared.

Asked by: Dave
Hi, Dave! Thank you for your question. You can install three shower components onto the R22000 MultiChoice® Universal Integrated Shower Diverter Rough and use all three separately by purchasing a 3 setting Integrated diverter valve trim and also purchasing the RP71718 3 setting non-shared diverter cartridge. Here is a link to this non-shared diverter cartridge: https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP71718 Best Regards, Rosanna

I’m planning on installing an overhead shower and a hand shower (55424-RB). Wall elbow 50560-RB. Valve trim T27825 (temp/3-setting div). Besides the shower head, arm and flange (and piping), is R22000-WS the only other part i’ll need to complete set-up?

Asked by: irc2
Thank you for your question, Irc2! That is correct if you are only planning on using a shower head as well as a wall mounted hand shower. The integrated diverter trim will allow you to switch between two functions with the option to use both simultaneously. Please contact us directly if you have questions or need further assistance. Best regards, Edward

Hi, I am wondering what is the difference between the r22000 and the r22000-ws. 

Asked by: ejvv
Thank you for your question, ejvv! The model R22000-WS has supply shut offs, which allow you to turn the water off directly at the valve during installation or repair. Best regards, Jon

In the specsheet for this valve, it says "not recommended of tub application. No tub outlet".

I need the valve to operate tub spout, Handheld shower, wall shower (all the three independently). Also, handheld shower and wall shower to be operated simultaneously. In the specsheet, it says "Not recommended for tub outlet. No tub outlet". Does this mean I cannot use this valve if I need to operate tub spout and showers? If yes, what is the alternative?
Asked by: amateurplumber
Hi amateurplumber, Thank you for your question. This 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/search-results?searchTerm=r10000%2C+r11000 Best regards, Jon

Asked by: pat
Dear Pat, Thank you for your question. The Delta MultiChoice R22000-WS valve, is a universal type fitting and is 1/2" NPT male thread with 1/2" C.W.T. female sweat. It sweats onto 1/2" C.W.T. or accepts 1/2" iron pipe, PEX or CPVC adapters. The flow rate at 80 PSI is between 5.6 gpm and 7.4 gpm depending on the series of trim/cartridge used. https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-B-R22000%20Rev%20B.pdf Best regards, Tanya
