I’m installing a single shower head setup. Want matching look of other bathroom that has a T27T959 valve. Will be using an R10000-UNBXHF valve. Want max flow and pressure - do I go with T17059 or T17T059? What’s the difference between the two?
Hello Mtka Mike,
There is in fact a big difference between the two. The T17059 is a regular monitor 1700 series. The T17T059 is from the same Trinsic collection but with a thermostatic cartridge.
TempAssure Thermostatic valves monitor the temperature of the water and adjust the mix automatically to maintain precise temperature control and to keep the water temperature in your shower within a safe ±3° F (±1.6° C). This provides a more consistent temperature than pressure balanced valves can supply. TempAssure valves also feature an adjustable high-temperature limit stop that when properly set helps ensure the handle cannot be turned to a position that is too hot for comfort. And because TempAssure measures the temperature of water, the handle limit stop will not need to be adjusted for seasonal ground water temperature changes. This information can but found under the smart solutions tab. Once your there you can click on Tempassure tab.

can not get the water temperature hot enough in the shower. hot water tank is set all the way hot. i have a trinsic 17 series shower
Hi, Aurthur P.
Thank you for your question, and I am sorry you are experiencing temperature issues with your Delta faucet. There is a rotational limit stop at the handle that can be adjusted to get hotter water. Here is a link to our How-To video on how to adjust the rotational limit stop. Your 17 series instructions will start 1:50 minute mark.

I don't see a Trinsic 17T option for a TempAssure cartridge? Does Trinsic trim support that option?
Searching on TempAssure shower valve products, I only find Vero, Ara, and Arzo with contemporary styling. Could I replace the 17 pressure balanced cartridge with the 17T TempAssure in the Trinsic or Compel trims?
Thank you for your question. You are correct, there is not a Trinsic 17T option available. Unfortunately, you cannot just put the cartridge for the 17T on a 1700 series and use the same handle. It will not fit.

I don't want to replace my older 1700 series rough in, will this work using the RP32104 cartridge?
I don't want to have to pay a plumber to come out and swap rough ins. I do need to replace the cartridge and believe that the RP32104 is correct as it has the square key instead of the triangle the new ones have. Will this valve work with that cartridge?
Hi Ryanoutloud, Thank you for your question. If your 1700 series faucet is older than February 2006 and the top of the cartridge is white then the RP32104 is the correct replacement cartridge. If newer than February 2006 and the cartridge has a gray top then RP46463 would be the correct part.

Rain shower head with trim?
I want to use a rain shower head (delta RP50841) overhead and control the pressure and temperature using this Trinsic 17 Series MC Valve Trim. Will this work? Do I need any other parts to do this?
You can use the raincan showerhead part number RP50841 with the trim T17059. The only thing extra that you will need is a shower arm such as RP46870 and a showerarm flange such as RP46872.

I plan to buy the Trinsic 17 Series MC Valve Trim. I need to know exactly the "rough" valve for it and for the Trinsic 3-function diverter valve.
I'm having a hard time finding online both the Trinsic 17 Valve Trim and the Trinsic 3-function diverter trim and figuring out which "rough" valves match these trims. Also, the style of the 3-function diverter isn't an exact match to that of the 17. Any reason for that? I can send photos if requested.
Thank you for your question. We recommend using Delta Faucet model R10000-UNBX with your T17059. For your diverter rough-in valve, we recommend the R11000. If you are adding one feature to your shower, we suggest the T11859 diverter trim. If you are adding 2 features to your shower, we suggest the T11959 diverter trim. Both of these models are in the Trinsic series.
