Does this diverter have any flow rate restrictions beyond what the valve supplies?
I was looking at the Delta T18037-SSXO combo jets+diverter trim, but my plumber said that the module has a total flow rate of 2.5 gpm. That is, even if the diverter is selecting the non-jet outputs, like a shower head and a handshower, the diverter restricts the total flow to 2.5 gpm (even though the valve in front of it will flow at 6+ gpm). So, I'm looking for alternatives.
Does this diverter impose any max flow rate?
Thank you for your question! The maximum flow rate will depend on the shower valve and the series of trim used. However, at 60 PSI, the maximum combined flow rate will be approximately 5 to 7 GPM.
The T18037-SSXO trim will provide approximately the same maximum flow rate. The body sprays alone have a maximum flow rate of 2.5 GPM at 80 PSI.

what rough in
I have installed R11600 and purchased this item T11994 as my trim, the cartridge in this unit does not fit the R11600. I have ask so many people without resolve, please provide the part no.
Thank you for your question. To properly use your Delta Faucet model # R11600 with the T11994, you will need a few peices. You will need the RP42410 cartridge assembly, the RP37903 stem extender, and the RP37890 extension screw. We made some modifications to the new trims, and getting these peices will let you use your older rough-in valve.
