dual function or single function
what is the difference between dual function pressure balance cartridge and single function pressure balance cartridge? Also, I see that there is a dual function thermostatic cartridge - I always thought that the above mentioned cartridges were thermostatic as well? Is this thermostatic cartridge newer? How long has it been around?
Hi Jg, Thank you for your question. The single function pressure balance cartridge controls temperature only. The dual function pressure balanced and dual function thermostatic cartridges allows you to control the temperature and volume separately. The RP47201 thermostatic cartridge came out in 2006. The pressure balanced cartridges control temperature through water pressure, the thermostatic through water temperature.

can I run 5 gpm @ +/- 65 psi through Delta Monitor Shower Valve
I have a 12 year old home with a Delta Monitor valve in the Master bath shower. I am planning to remodel the bath room and would like to install 2 - 2.5gpm shower heads. Can this valve handle the flow volume? The water lines in the home are 3/4" and reduced at the valve. Meter is 1" and service line to house is 1.5" so Valve would be restriction point. Water pressure is over 70psi on city main.
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # T17430 paired with the R10000-UNBX will flow at 6.0 gpm at 60 psi. We would recommend looping your showerheads behind the wall so they come into one port and you do not lose pressure. The fewer elbow turns you have, the better your pressure will be.

Is there a model that has all these features but also includes an integrated diverter?
Thank you for your question. The Delta Classic 17 Series Tub and Shower T17430 faucet can be used with a R11000 Diverter Valve and one of the Classic 3 or 6-Setting Diverter Trim T11800 or T11900. Please feel free to call, email, or message us on social.

How can the HOT water be adjusted to allow MORE hot than cold?
Hot water is not hot enough. Is there an adjustment to open HOT water valve more?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # T17430 contains a rotational limit stop that may need adjusting to allow more hot water to flow through the valve. Included here are the maintenance and installation instructions for your faucet. The directions for adjusting the limit stop are on page 9.

Do you make a water controller that has a back plate that is 7 5/8" or bigger in Brushed Nickel that has the features of the T17430. I presently have everything but it is gold and I would like to change them to Brushed Nickel. Thank you.
Thank you for your question, Juju! Although many standard escutcheon plates with the same hole placement will work, we have limited options in Brushed Nickel such as RP61184BN which is only 7" however our Stainless Steel finish is a very close match so you could instead use the 7 1/2" plate RP28795SS. Furthermore the Victorian trim ring, part number RP34359SS is 8" long and 7-3/4" tall and could be used with any 7" escutcheon plate.
Best regards, Edward

Can you clarify differences between the 3 Classic Monitor 17 Series models?
T17430 (and -MTS and -SOS) have separate volume controls, but only the -SOS is listed as having the dual-function pressure balance cartridge. "Understanding Delta Valve Cartridges" says the dual function cartridge supports separate volume control, but does not say that for the single function cartridge. This seems contradictory - how does the T-17430 and T-17430-MTS with single function cartridges provide for separate volume control? Also, I 'd like to verify whether the spouts for T-17430 and the -SOS are plastic or metal.
Thank you for your questions. All three models have the dual-function pressure balance cartridge. The tub spouts for T17430 and T17430-MTS are metallic while the tub spout for T17430-SOS is nonmetallic.
