With separate handles for volume and temperature control, this Delta tub/shower provides a more refined showering experience. Simply set the water at your preferred temperature and turn the shower on or off with the volume control handle - without interrupting your set temperature. While other products may gather unsightly mineral build-up over time, Delta soft rubber Touch-Clean® spray holes allow any mineral residue to simply be wiped away for an instantly refreshed look – with no need for soaking or the aid of chemical cleaners. Delta® pressure-balance valves use Monitor® Technology to protect you and your family from sudden temperature changes. This Brilliance Stainless finish has subtle, warm undertones which make it an excellent match with nickel or stainless steel and is extremely versatile, complementing nearly any look, be it traditional, transitional or contemporary. Delta WaterSense labeled faucets, showers and toilets use at least 20% less water than the industry standard—saving you money without compromising performance.
  • Control volume and water temperature independently with two separate handles for more refined control of your shower experience
  • Monitor pressure balance valve keeps water temperature within a safe +/-3degrees F (+/-1.6degrees C), helping to protect you from sudden changes in hot or cold water pressure
  • Spray settings include: Full Body spray, Massaging spray, Drenching spray
  • Soft, rubber Touch-Clean spray holes allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up from the spray face of your shower head and hand shower with the touch of a finger
  • Trim kit only, must order MultiChoice® Universal Valve separately to complete the unit
  • ADA Compliant
  • WaterSense® labeled shower heads use at least 20% less water than the industry standard without compromising performance

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice looking functional Nice fixture. A little bulky. Functions well enough. I've had some leaking at the faucet with shower pull plus some noise when this is pulled but that could be an installation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shower head we've had in years! Our home is full of Delta products, but this shower head is the best! The pressure and and temperature is always just perfect. There's no adjustments to be made at all. Thank you Delta.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great features I didn't caare for the fact that the hot/cold adjustment was plastic. All of the other components were heavy duty and this piece just seemed to be cheap. I hope it can hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely Satisfied w/Our Purchase There was a billing mistake which was quickly and accurately rectified. I was impressed with the company's speed of resolution and attention to the problem. Other companies should do so well. The unit itself is a cost effective solution to the problem of a shower stall that is on the small side. The variable control and no scald features work perfectly at all times. We have installed 2 of these in separate showers and are totally satisfied with their quality and value.

Can I purchase just the controls?

We just purchased a home that has an older model Delta shower controls similar to this one with the dial to adjust temperature controls. I would like to upgrade to a nickel finish from the gold, but cannot find this type of controls anywhere in stores, or separate from a set. Can this be ordered without the shower head? If so, where could I order this?
Asked by: Stewart
Hi Stewart, Thank you for your question. A new 17 series trim will fit on an existing 1700 or 17 series rough. The cartridge that will ship with the new trim will fit a valve newer than February 2006. If the valve is older than February 2006 the existing cartridge will have to be reused or replaced by a new RP32104. We offer some valve only trims in the 17 series but not in the Classic bath series. The T17230-SS is not available without the showerhead. The T17094, T17038,T17078,and T17059 would be examples of valve only trims. Thanks, Dave

My existing Delta Monitor tub and shower kit is brass. We're modernizing the bathroom with brushed nickel hardware. Will this kit work with the existing valve? Will the stainless kit match brushed nickel?

Asked by: gags
Thank you for your question, gags! If you have an original 1700 or a 1500 series trim with the escutcheon screw holes at the 1 and 7 o'clock positions, then this trim kit can be used to update your installation. Our Stainless Steel finish is a close match to Brushed Nickel. Best regards, Edward

Is my new shower control working correctly?

Builder just installed Classic with separate volume and temperature controls in new shower. When volume control handle is turned, temperature control turns with it (as if joined). If I hold volume control steady with one hand, I can turn temperature control separately with the other hand. They're telling me that this is how this should work. Doesn't make sense to me - it seems that each control should turn independently. What is the correct operation of this type of control? Could they have installed wrong valve or installed something incorrectly? Where can I get written info or video info describing the proper functions for this type of dual control? Thank you.
Asked by: The Rays
Hi The Rays, Thank you for your question. The 17 Series operation works exactly as you described. The single handle offers temperature and volume control. The volume control will always move the temperature knob but will not change the setting. Check the tightness of the screw under the temperature knob. The temperature knob will cause the volume control to move some, but should still have some free range of motion without affecting the volume. Newness could also be a factor. I have attached the link to the owners manual. Thanks, Dave http://www.deltafaucet.com/customersupport/documentation/t17230-ss.html?document=mi&fromDetailArea=bath&documentIndex=0#flashWrapper

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.
Asked by: Mark
Hi, Mark! 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. https://www.deltafaucet.com/cms/render/live/en/sites/delta/home/video-gallery/video-page.html?videoId=tyUaPOBcuLY Best Regards, Rosanna

contractor just installed classic monitor 17. Temperature lever for the hot position is cold and to the right is hot water. valve rotated no change

Asked by: richard
Hi Richard, Thank you for your question. It still sounds like the cartridge is not positioned properly. The cartridge has the words "Hot Side" located on the light gray portion of the cartridge at the base of the stem. Make sure the "hot side" of the cartridge is on the hot side water supply. This should get the temperature handle working correctly. I have attached a picture of the cartridge to show you where "hot side" is located. Thanks, Dave

Monitor 1700 series trim kit conversion

I am remodeling a bathroom that was built in the late 1990s and I would like to replace the trim on the shower faucet, Delta Monitor 1700 series. I would like to change the chrome trim to the Stainess steel look. Will the Classic Monitor 17 series shower trim work for me?
Asked by: Fletch
Hi Fletch, Thank you for your question. A new 17 series trim like the model T17230-SS will work with your existing 1700 series rough in valve. The new trim will ship with a new cartridge. This cartridge will not work in your existing rough, you will have to continue to use your old cartridge or replace it with a new RP32104 cartridge. Thanks, Dave

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.
Asked by: pde
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. Thanks, Dave

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?

Asked by: Sara
Hi Sara, 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. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP32104 https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP46463 Best regards, Edward
