i have a classic monitor 17 series and do not like the limit stop.can I replace with a different cartridge and just use a single handle control.
Thank you for your inquiry! The Handle valve and cartridge assembly of your Delta Classic Shower T17230 can be replace with the Delta Classic 13 Series T13020 trim kit and cartridge assembly, as long as the MultiChoice Universal Rough-In valve R10000-UN was originally install in the wall.

this is the shower faucet we have and want to replace the trim - shower was installed in 2001 - how do I know what rough valve we have?
Thank you for your question. The current multichoice universal valve was released in 2006. Any current T17 series can be used with the older valve body. You will simply need to continue using the original 1700 series cartridge, part RP32104 which has a white cap. The rp46463 is the current multichoice cartridge that comes with current trim kits and has a grey cap. I will include links to both cartridges below for reference.

Hi. My delta 1700 series monitor is loose. How do I tighten the temperature control button. Thanks.
Thank you for your question. There is a screw that can be tightened for your temperature knob handle. To get to this screw, you may pull the temperature knob cover straight off. This will expose the screw and you should be able to tighten the screw with a Philips screw driver.

Is there a video or tutorial on how to repair a persistent drip?
This shower head drips when the shower is off. I have had it less than a year. I am looking for a video or tutorial on how to disassemble this showerhead and diagnose the problem. Or, can anyone give me advice on how to proceed and what steps to follow? Thanks.
Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear that your shower is leaking when it's off. We recommend to change the seals in the handle to stop the leak. Here is a link to our how-to video that shows you step by step on how to change the seals.

Can you purchase this without a shower head?
I have a shower head that I like, but I'd like to upgrade the other parts of my shower (controls, handle, etc.). Is it possible to buy this unit without a shower head? Are the various parts that make up this item available separately? If not, is the shower arm a standard design so that I can attach any shower head to it? Thanks!
Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, this unit is not available without the shower head. However, the shower arm has universal 1/2" threads that should work with your shower head.
Below is a link to our selection of Valve-Only 17 series trim kits.
The shower arm and flange are RP6023 and RP6025.

Volume and Temperature controls correct?
Builder just installed Classic with separate volume and temperature controls in new shower. When volume control handle is turned, temperature control turns with it. If I hold volume control steady with one hand, I can turn temperature control separately with the other hand. Is this how it's suppose to work? I thought they moved independently so that you shut the shower off, but the temperature control stays in the same place. I really need to see a video of this working because the written info doesn't say anything about how they function, just how it's installed.
Hi Suz, Thank you for your question. Your faucet is functioning properly. The temperature handle will also move when the volume control is moved. Once you have the temperature knob set in the desired position you can turn the volume control off and although the temperature knob moves with it when the handle is turned back on your temperature setting should return as well.

shower head spray? How to adjust?
Details for shower head state: "Easy-to-clean, Touch-Clean shower head with dual spray function for full- or massage spray patterns."
How do I adjust the spray patterns? Can't seem to make the spray change.
Hi PDE, Thank you for your question. The RP43381SS showerhead that comes with the T17230-SS shower trim is adjusted by the lever on the side of the showerhead. Moving the lever to the left or right will switch between the spray patterns.

How do I adjust water tempature
I cannot get water hot enough in my shower and need to adjust the valve on Monitor 1700 series so that it will allow more hot water to flow
Hi Dennis, Thank you for your question. Your model T17230 is equipped with a rotational limit stop that allows you to set the max hot water temperature for the faucet. Step 4 on page 7 of the attached manual will show you how to adjust the rotational limit stop and increase the water temperature.
We also have a how to video to show you how to make the adjustment.
