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
  • 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.

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

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

does this trim kit work on 1700 series before 2006

Asked by: carlos
Thank you for your question, carlos! The model T17238 as well as all other Delta 17 series trim kits can be used on an older 1700 series valve body, however you will need to continue using the RP32104 cartridge as the newer MultiChoice cartridge that is included with this kit, will not fit into the older valve body.

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.

Which valve should I get for the shower only Model # T17038?

Asked by: Mary
Thank you for your question, Mary! Model T17038 is a 17 series valve trim only but can work with any of our MultiChoice Universal rough-in valves such as R10000-UNBXHF (high flow, shower only) depending on your installation needs and how you intend to connect the valve. If you're unsure, we recommend speaking with a professional about your specific requirements. Best regards, Edward

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
