Parts needed for a shower and tub combi
Hello, I am remodeling and will have a shower and tub combo with 1 shower only. I am getting the 51708 hand held. Here are the parts I think I need. Can you tell me what else is needed to complete tub shower combo please and if the parts I have below will work? I think I'll need something to divert shower to the tub - I do like the cassidy collection and would like to match if posisible.
-51708 handheld shower
- R10000 UNBX multi tub shower valve
- 505060 elbow
- RP62149 tub spout
- T17097 trim for temp and volume
Thank you for your question. We would recommend a diverter tub spout. The diverter tub spout in the Cassidy collection is RP72565. Here is a link to the diverter tub spout:

Does this Trim comes with the Valve?
Thanks for your question! The valve is sold separately. This trim will work with any R10000 rough-in valve.

Can the H795 cross handle by put on the T17T
I need a shower body that this a thermostatic control valve and a volume control. Can I specify T17T with H975 cross handles and Delta R10000 universal multichoice rough.
Does the R10000 universal rough come standard with thread female rough-in?
Hi Mike, Thank you for your question!
The H795 is a handle for our T13/T14 series and would not work n a T17T cartridge. Also, please is a link to the technical specifications for all of our R10000 rough in valves:

The difference in the ceramic cartridge T17T vs the silicone cartridge T17, how does the difference impact the life performance of the unit?
Will the silicone version require replacement or repair after a period of time? Is there a warranty on the silicone vs. the ceramic cartridge?
Thank you for your question. Both 17 and 17T units are covered under our Lifetime Warranty on parts and finish. While the TempAssure cartridge of the 17T series should last longer, both Monitor and TempAssure models are designed to last.

What is the difference between the T17097-ss Trim and the T17T097-ss other than the price?
Thank you for your question. The difference in the T17097 and the T17T097 is the cartridge that is inside. The T17T cartridge comes with a thermostatic cartridge that is ceramic. It withstands harsher water conditions compared to the T17097 that contains a cartridge with silicone based seats and springs that seal the valve body. They both function the same.

Should volume knob also turn temperature knob?
On the Cassidy MultiChoice 17 Series Valve Trim, when I turn the large rear handle (for volume), it also turns the small front handle (for temperature). This seems odd to me, but my contractor insists that it is correct.
Can anyone else comment on whether the temperature handle should turn when the volume handle is turned?
Thank you for your question! The temperature dial does turn with the volume handle. However, the dial will move independently of the volume handle when adjusting the temperature.

Will all those parts working together?
I am remodeling my bathroom. I would like to have an overhead shower plus a hand shower with slide bar. I have picked out following parts and would like to know whether they will work together and whether I am missing anything.
T17097-SS valve trim, R11000 diverter rough, 50560-SS wall elbow, 51708-SS slide bar hand shower, U4993-SS shower arm and flange.
Any recommendation for shower head? I would like something with good water volume going through it.
Hi June, Thank you for your question. You will need an R10000-UNBXHF rough to go with your T17097-SS trim. You have the R11000 diverter rough and need the matching diverter trim T11897-SSLHP, plus the handle H597SS. The rest of your items are correct. Our showerheads that feature the H2O Kinetic would be a good choice for your shower.

What is the MultiChoice Universal rough? And why do I need to purchase it separately?
I am not understanding what it is and what is the difference between with and without. And can you explain the difference between the 17 and the 17T?
Thank you for your questions. The T17097-PN is the trim that you see on the outside of the wall and the cartridge for the valve body. The R10000 is the Multichoice universal rough in valve, the part that gets plumbed into the wall. You must have both pieces for a complete faucet. The T17 has a dual function pressure balance cartridge that allows you to control temperature and volume on your faucet. The T17T has a dual function thermostatic cartridge to control temperature and volume. The T17T has a higher flow rate and is not affected by the seasonal temperature of the water coming into the faucet.
