Monitor 17 vs Tempassure 17T
The description on this one (Monitor 17) states that it controls volume. What is the difference between this model and the 17T? Does the Monitor 17's larger handle just turn it on and off or does is actually control the volume? Thank you.
Thank you for your question. The 17 series has a Monitor pressure balance cartridge. The 17T series has a thermostatic TempAssure cartridge that provides a more precise temperature control. Please click the link below for more information.

Need separate controls for temperature and volume
What is the simplest shower handle available that can can control temperate and pressure separately? Can I buy that without shower head (we have one already)? Please also suggest correct rough-in assembly.
Thank you for your question! Our 17 series shower trims have separate controls for volume and temperature. Models beginning with T170 will include only the trim and cartridge for the valve and can be installed on any R10000 rough-in valve.

Body Sprays and Jets for "Sit Down on Bench Massage"
Steam Room Corner Bench - Lahara Collection used so far
Want to install Body Sprays or Jets - 2 or 3 for back and 1 or 2 for legs.
These will be within 3 to 8 inches of our back and legs, since we will be sitting down and close to the wall that they are installed onto.
1. So, for a nice, powerful "massage" which should I get: T18017-SSXO, T1817-SS, T50001-SS, 50100-SS, 50102-SS or combinations thereof?
2. Option (1) to turn on "massagers" for back only, for legs only, or for both back and legs.
3. Option (2) to turn on "massagers" for back and legs together only, no need to have them separately controlled.
4. What other items (Valve, Trim, Diverter?) do I need?
Thank you for your questions. Delta Faucet model # T17238 needs to be paired with the R10000-UNBXHF if you are never going to have a tub spout with the faucet. This will get you more flow from your features.
Regarding your massage choices, the T18017-SSXO will give you 2.5 gpm split between two jets. You will need the R1827-XO with it.
If you use the 50100-SS (1.8 gpm) or the 50102-SS (2.0 gpm), you will also need the R11000 diverter rough-in wittthe T11800-SS for 3 settings or T11900-SS for 6 settings.
With the T17238 and the R10000-UNBXHF, you will have 6.7 gpm at 60 psi so you will need to watch how many jets you are running at one time.

Once the water temperature setting has been established, shouldn't I be able to simply turn the shower on in the future without having to reset the shower water temperature valve?
Hello Ron 72,
Thank you for your question! The temperature knob will stay in the position it was in when last used, so you can turn the faucet off and back on without having to find the same temperature setting.
Best regards, Jon

I have T17238-SS and need it to control 2 shower heads
I currently have the T17238-SS with R100000-UN Valve.
I want to add a 2nd Showerhead (Raincan).
I will only use 1 showerhead at a time, never both together.
1. Can I keep current Valve or need a different one?
2. Do I need a Diverter or is the current Valve and Trim okay?
3. Suggestions for a Raincan that will match T17238-SS, need it to have as-long-as-possible arm to reach out from wall.
Thank you for your question. To pair with your Delta Faucet model T17238-SS and R10000-UN, we recommend Delta Faucet model R10000 diverter rough and T11800-SS diverter trim. If you are never going to use the two showerheads at the same time, you can also purchase RP71717 cartridge and they will not have a shared position.
We have a raincan showerhead that matches the Lahara collection with model RP51305SS and an extendable shower arm with model U6930-SS. It extends 13"-22" from the wall.

Confusing answer above
I am sorry but I found you answer to my question (both above) confusing. From Delta spec sheet: RP71717 is Non-shared 2 function cartridge for use with 3-setting diverter trim. However, RP71718 (not mentioned in your answer) is Non-shared 3 function cartridge for use with 6-setting diverter trim.
In bath1 I proposed T11800 which is 3-setting diverter trim.
In bath2 I proposed T11900 which is 6-setting diverter trim.
I think the answer to my question should be ONE of these two choices:
1. All proposed components in both baths are correct. The only pieces you are missing from your bath set-ups is the RP71717 for bath1 and RP71718 for bath2.
2. All proposed components in both baths are correct except T11900 in bath2 - T11800 should be used instead. The only piece you are missing from both bath set-ups is the RP71717.
So, which one is correct, 1 or 2 ? Thanks
Sorry I confused you. Maybe I should ask like this: I have 2 bathrooms.
In bathroom#1 I plan to install T17238, 55021 and 50560.
In bathroom#2 I plan to install T17438, 55021 and 50560.
What diverters and rough valves (and anything additional) I need to purchase for each bathroom? Note: all water outlets must operate only individually.

Is the R10000-UNBXHF valve compatible with this for a shower only application?
Thank you for your question. This trim kit will work with the R10000-UNBXHF rough-in valve.

Can I install this trim set in shower that currently has Lahara Monitor 14 set? Would I need anything other than this trim kit?
My builder is installing the Lahara Monitor 14 shower & tub trim, but I want this one with the separate temperature and volume control. Would I need anything else / would this be an easy swap?
Thank you for your question! It should be an easy swap as both trims use a MultiChoice R10000 valve body.
