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. Chrome has rapidly become one of the most popular finishes across décor styles in the bath thanks to its stunning gloss and innate versatility. Paired with crisp lines and bright whites, it creates a bold, modern contrast, but it works equally well with vintage styles and traditional spaces to convey a hint of nostalgia.
  • 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: Pause, Full Body Spray, Full Spray w/Massage, Fast Massage, Soft Drench Spray
  • Trim kit only, must order MultiChoice Universal rough-in separately to complete the unit
  • 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
  • Single lever handle for ease of control
  • Meets standards set by Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • WaterSense labeled shower heads use at least 20% less water than the industry standard without compromising performance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Easy to install. Beautiful finish. Excellent flow from shower head. Easy to use handles. Highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Functions ok, but feels very cheap Plastic makes the product’s quality very suspect. It does feel well made. As my title indicates, it functions ok, but water flow is weak and I hate products without a solid feel.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Installation problems When the plumber installed the first unit he found missing pieces in a sealed package from Delta. When I called Delta they were not very helpful but did send a replacement part. It was a good thing I was redoing two bathrooms so the plumber took the pieces out of the second unit. Cost me an extra 200 dollars to pay the plumber for overtime!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from shower head After using in our new home for 2.5 years, the movable joint on the head now leaks. I am currently on hold with Delta customer service to seek resolution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a GREAT value, high quality! We have this same set in another bath. For four years. It looks great. Because we have a very high calcium content to the water, we pay attention. We rub down the nozzle a bit every week. We wash the handle a bit with a washcloth and a bit of "scrubbing action" whenever any white appears. It's great to warm the shower up and get pretty much precisely the same temperature every shower (adjusted slightly as the seasons change). This is a great product and we know we are helping the environment by the water we save...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inadequate Water Flow I recently had this unit installed by a professional contractor at my residence. I am very disappointed in the function of the shower head. The water flow/stream is too weak for the massage feature to be effective. The full stream setting is also weak. I am looking for a another shower head that can provide adequate water flow. I am also disappointed in the quality of the temperature control lever as it does not turn smoothly for fine temperature adjustments. In hindsight, I would not have purchased this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Function is great Bought this a while ago and finally got to install it. It operates smoothly and is so much better than our old 60s shower handle (that leaked too). I like how I can select water temp independent of flow volume. Makes showering great again! The only thing I would say is that the picture of the showerhead doesn't quite match reality. The actual head had a chrome back, a black plastic "background", and translucent/whitish nozzels where the water comes out. It is fairly big around (4 inches?) and has good water flow.

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.
Asked by: Linda
Dear Linda, 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. https://www.deltafaucet.com/design-innovation/innovations/shower/tempassure-valve--monitor-valve Best regards, Tanya

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.
Asked by: Mash
Hi Mash, 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. Please click the links below to view our selection of trim kits and rough-in valves: http://www.deltafaucet.com/search/results.html?q=t170 http://www.deltafaucet.com/search/results.html?q=R10000&num=20 Thanks, Jon

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.
Asked by: Dave
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? 

Asked by: Ron 72
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.
Asked by: Dave
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. OR 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
Asked by: sloguy
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. thanks

Is the R10000-UNBXHF valve compatible with this for a shower only application?

Asked by: bob

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?
Asked by: KMoore
Hi KMoore, Thank you for your question! It should be an easy swap as both trims use a MultiChoice R10000 valve body. Best regards, Jon
