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. Delta pressure-balance valves use Monitor® Technology to protect you and your family from sudden temperature changes. The pause setting gives you ample space for shaving, lathering and other shower tasks, then easily restarts the water with the temperature where you left off. This spray setting helps you conserve water, so you can worry less about depleting your supply of hot water - and you help the environment too. 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.
  • 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 1 out of 5 by from Dripping when off I chose these with the "upgraded" bronze finish for my new home built in 2015. This tub/shower faucet is in an auxillery bath, and is seldom used. It is already dripping when off. Delta is sending me replacement seats and springs, so we'll see if this solves the dripping. Interesting to note that Delta has discontinued this model 17T. I suppose I'll be replacing the entire faucet if this problem isn't solved. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking With a new house being build, the plumber insisted on the Delta Lahara line of faucets for the bathrooms; They look fantastic and function beautifully. Have a great warranty. I am very happy with them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Although the dual function shower trim seems quite good, both the tub spout and shower head are plastic colored chrome. I would not have purchased if I had known this and I had to purchase another tub spout as a replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and style. We had our pressure valve and housing replaced with the Delta fixtures in our master bath shower. The service was done by Heating and Plumbing Paramedics out of Noblesville, Indiana. The service man, Austin, was very knowledgeable and professional. The work was completed in two hours and the Delta fixtures for our shower are very stylish and the shower performance is awesome. We love it. Will definitely contact Plumbing Paramedics in the future. Have recommended this business to several home owners that live around me. I'm sure they will be calling when they need plumbing or heating needs in the future. A JOB WELL DONE and thanks!!

I have T13220 Monitor 13 Series Shower Trim (fits Multichoice Universal Valve). Brand new build, but I would like to replace with T17438-CZ series. Will this work with the existing rough valve? Documentation just shows R1000-UNBX or R1000-LBX.

Asked by: coz123
Hello coz123, Thank you for your question. A Multi-choice Universal rough-in valve like the R10000-UNBX/LBX allows you the choice of easily swapping out any of our current shower trim kits. Any current T13/14, T17 or T17T trim will work with this type of rough-in valve. Best regards, Edward

Is the loweer tub spout designed to use the "C1" method of attachment like the directions state?

I do not want to solder on an adapter as in the "C4" method. I just want to slip the spout on to the 1/2" copper pipe and tighten a set screw.
Asked by: Tim
Hi Tim, Thank you for your question. The tub spout that comes with the Lahara collection can only be sweated onto 1/2" C.W.T. or threaded onto 1/2" IPS. Best Regards, Courtney

how do I get the temperature control cap off to replace interior parts

Asked by: Rog
Hi Rog, Thank you for your question. The temperature knob cover can be removed by prying up on it from the tip. It should separate from the gray temperature knob, which has a Phillips head screw. Please be sure to turn off the water supplies before disassembling the faucet. Best regards, Jon

Can I use an existing 1700 rough valve for a new T17438-SS Lahara Monitor 17 Series Tub and Shower Trim?

Asked by: Dwayne
Thank you for your question, Dwayne. This trim will work with an existing pre-2006 1700 series valve using the original cartridge (part number RP32104). Best regards, Jon

We have the R1000-UNBX universal mount with this faucet. Why are we getting water out of the shower piece when we turn on the hot? We don't have

the shower activated but we are getting water out of the shower valve. The hot water is not hot. It is hot coming out of other faucets.
Asked by: Angie
Hi Angie, We are sorry that you are experiencing a problem with your faucet. Most likely, you are experiencing "shower-rise" where the water can’t get out of the spout as fast as it flows through the valve. This causes the water to back up and come out the shower head. There can be one of several reasons for this: The valve could be upside down The length from the valve to the tub spout is outside of the 8" to 18" rule There is more than one 90-degree angle Something other than copper or galvanized pipe was used going to the spout The most common reason is that there is something restricting the water flow to the spout, e.g. solder or something lodged in the pipe. Something is impeding the flow of water to the spout and causing it to back up and go out the shower head. If this is the cause of shower-rise it is possible to remove the blockage by removing the tub spout; then, feeding a plumber’s snake or a speedometer cable up through the tub drop. The act of feeding it causes it to twirl and loosen the blockage. Be sure to flush the valve before reinstalling the tub spout. Be sure to check the tub spout itself for blockage. If none of these help, you may need to call a plumber. After the shower has been installed and the wall has been closed, there is little that can be done to remedy this situation yourself. Your faucet is equipped with a rotational limit stop that allows you to set the max hot water temperature on your faucet. Making the adjustment to this piece will raise the water temperature in the faucet. Here is a link to the How to adjust the rotational limit stop video. The 17 series portion of the video starts at 1:50 into the video. http://www.deltafaucet.com/shopping-tools/research/video-gallery/video.html?v=n2_uZ7wgV1I&cat= Thanks, Dave
