What is the part number for matching valve trim for using multiple valves in a master shower?
I am building a new house and combining this shower trim with a handheld (51405-SS, 50560-SS) and 2 body sprays (T50001-SS, R50001). I do not want to use a diverter valve (R11000) because our local soft, salty water destroys the inner parts of diverter valves, requiring frequent replacement. I would rather have separate valves for each shower part. Would I need 3 of the the T17T055-SS trim kits, one for each shower part? Do they all need separate volume and temperature control? I am buying the parts separate from the plumber, and all the part numbers and required parts are a little confusing for me. Am I crazy? Should I just do the diverter valve and replace it every 5 years?
Hi Joe, Thank you for your question. We recommend installing a single faucet rough and trim and the diverter rough and trim instead of 3 separate faucets. Both roughs are made from brass so there is no advantage in the multiple valves. You will need an R10000-UNBXHF rough, the T17T255-SS shower trim (offers highest flowrate for multiple features), the R11000 rough, T11955-SS 6 setting diverter trim plus the handheld and body spray items listed above. The diverter will allow you to operate each feature individually or any two at the same time.

I am general contractor building brand new house. My plumber installed the master showers valves (2 of them) too deep in the wall. now after tiling
when he installed the trims T17455-RBH2O, there is not enough gas between the lever and Escutheon plate. you can not wrap your fingers around the lever. Can I buy other model handles such as Lahara and install on this trim. It seems that Lahara handle sticks out more out of the plate. What other solutions do I have other than ripping the tile and concrete float and pulling the valve out. I need to create 1/4" to 3/8" more gap to be able to wrap the fingers around the lever.
Does your other trims have the lever distanced more away from the plate.
Thank you for your question. I do apologize for the issue that you are having with your faucet. Unfortunately, you will need reinstall the valve. Any trim that you use with this valve is going to have the same problem.
