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. An ornate blend of deep, warm tones and subtle highlights give Venetian Bronze® a hand-brushed look that can transform a bath. Offering a smooth contrast to light tones and coordinating well with darker ones, this finish can have a beautiful soothing effect on almost any space.
  • 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
  • Set ideal temperature and adjust volume separately
  • 5-setting shower head
  • Valve is not included, must purchase separately

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Shower System for us This is one of the components that makes up a complete shower system. This is the second system we have purchased for a new bathroom remodel in a different home. We, as well as our plumber are pleased to know all components come when ordering the shower system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shower! We really wanted a shower that had a separate control for both temperature and volume and this one delivers both. The shower head has multiple settings and is the perfect addition to our new walk-in shower stall. The brushed stainless steel is good looking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fixture I love the way this fixture turned out. I'm a DIY'er and have never attempted such a large project. I was able to install all the plumbing and fixtures myself. The instructions were clear enough for me to get it right the first time around. The only thing I'd do differently is I would leave a larger whole for the openings. There is no real direction for this and I ended up struggling to get everything hooked up with an opening that was just big enough for the plumbing to poke through. Tried adding a photo and it wouldn't upload.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! We have been very pleased with this shower trim. The separate levers for hot/cold water and volume are a great feature that allow you to control those functions independently versus most shower trims. Will likely change out other showers to have the same functionality. It does show some spots - so just make sure to wipe it down after showering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Champagne bronze finish We purchased this, the handheld shower with sliding bar along with all the necessary valves and parts necessary. Chose the Champagne bronze color, just beautiful soft, brushed, muted goldish hue. Not brassy or bold like the gold systems or shiny like the chrome. We used metalic, sparkly mosaic tiles and this is just a perfect color and style! Not overdone, very soft looking, really enhances the tile and the so compliments look of the bathroom!! Many, many, many great compliments on all our newly installed Delta "Champagne bronze" faucets, showers, and bathroom accessories!! They work great also. Switching from one setting to another is so very easy!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual controls are great Best feature is being able to control water temp with one control and water flow with another. The temp setting can remain in place, but need to monitor actual temp as your hot water may fluctuate. Unit is attractive. We got two, but replaced the standard shower head with Delta In2ition units with handheld shower heads. It should come without the shower head since we now have two we paid for that we will never use.

Lahara T17238-RB rough valve options?

I would like to replace an old shower valve with the Lahara model. I want to add a hand held shower and 3-way diverter valve at the shower arm (shower only application). I noticed an HF designation for high flow on some of the rough valve options. The standard rough valve appears to be the R10000-UNBXT. Is the R10000-UNBXHF my best option for the rough valve to get the most flow from the unit?
Asked by: Steve
Hi Steve, Thank you for your question. As long as you are not planning on adding a tub spout, model# R10000-UNBXHF would be the proper choice to increase waterflow in a multiple showerhead application. Thanks, Dave

How do I increase water temperature 

Asked by: Gary
Hi, Gary! Thank you for your question. The Delta Monitor T17238-RB shower head has a flow rate of 1.75 gpm @ 80 psi. There is not a way to increase the flow rate to be higher than this. Best Regards, Rosanna

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. Best regards, Tanya

\what components are required to have volume and temperature control?

Hi there, We're building a new house and have only a shower in our main bathroom. It's the volume control that is really important to us so we want to make sure we spec all the correct components. Something tells me we need more than just T17238 and R10000UNWS. Please confirm.
Asked by: rockhopper
Hi Rockhopper, Thank you for your question. The T17 series does offer temperature and volume control in a single handle shower faucet. The T17238 trim with the R10000-UNWS rough in will give you a complete shower faucet. No other components are required. Thanks, Dave

wi R10000 delta multichoice
Asked by: evie
Hi Evie, Thank you for your question. The model T17238-SS 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 your how to adjust the RLS and increase the water temperature. Here is a link to our How to adjust the rotational limit stop on your Delta faucet video. Thanks, Dave

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: Thanks, Jon
