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
  • Set ideal temperature and adjust volume separately
  • 5-setting shower head
  • Valve is not included, must purchase separately

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tub spigot is abysmal Unfortunately this is a low quality construction and the tub spout just sprays water all over

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Design flaw This should not come with a diverter in the faucet. It's managed by the handle. If you order this with a hand sprayer as well, the faucet diverter value will cause the water to back up. Design flaw? Maybe, but huge hassle as I need a different faucet that is non0diverter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product I got this a few weeks ago. I just got to install it about a week ago. The water is coming through the shower head better than it did in our old one. It makes such a difference when we take a shower. I really enjoy taking a shower now. It was tricky at first to hook it up but then we got it. I recommend this too my friends and family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install I recieved the Delta shower/faucet set about a month ago and installed it the day we received it. Installation was a breeze and it really helped to make our shower look updated and new again! The set has had no issues with leaking or not fitting properly. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for simple remodeling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality and looks nice Really loving this set. Was a great upgrade from what I had before. Easy to use the handle to adjust the temperature. Strong steam and even spray of the shower head. Stays shiny even when dried with water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install! I had never installed a shower head, tub spout, etc. but this product was super easy to install! Overall the appearance is great and it works well with my bathroom. The shower head provides a nice flow once it is dialed in correctly. One great thing is that if someone else starts using water (i.e. flushes toilet, starts washing machine) the water temperature and flow does not change through this shower head. The best feature of this set is that there are two handles: one turns the shower on and the other controls the temperature. I always hated trying to find that temperature that was just right every time I got in the shower. With this setup I can have the same temperature shower every time! Overall, a great product that I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL! This new faucet set is a beautiful addition to my bathroom remodel. It is very easy to use and looks nice. I love the brushed nickel look. I will be looking at some of your other products for future upgrades.

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 install T17438 trim in an existing 1400 series rough-in?

My plumber inspected and said this would work but on disassembly I discovered the new cartridge adaptor RP46973 did not fit the bore of the old rough-in. Is there a different PN adaptor available for installing the new cartridge RP46463 in a 1400 series rough-in? See attached photo showing differences in old and new parts.
Asked by: Ron
Hi Ron, Thank you for your question! You have a older 13/1400 series tub/shower. You will not be able to switch over to a T17 series without changing the valve body. Your unit can only use a T13 or T14 series trim but you will have to use an existing RP19804 valve cartridge and not the new multi choice cartridges included in our current trims. Best regards, Brandis

Can I use my existing rough-in?

I am updating my bath fixtures with the Lahara Monitor 17 Series Tub and Shower Trim. The Lahara will be replacing existing Delta Monitor fixtures (I'm unsure of the trim line or part #s), and there is no change in layout or addition of extra features like a 2nd shower head or jets. Can I use the rough-in that is already installed, or do I need to purchase and install a new one?
Asked by: Emily
Hi Emily, Thank you for your question! To identify the original unit, directly below the handle there should be a series number on the escutcheon plate. This trim will work with existing 1700 series valves. However, you will need to use the existing cartridge (or RP32104) rather than the one that comes with the kit. Thanks, Jon

Caulk Tub Spout

There is no waterproofing included between the back of the tub spout and wall. Should this space be filled with caulk? I'm assuming the seam should be caulked between the spout and wall.
Asked by: Dan
Hello Dan, Thank you for your inquiry! When installing the tub spout of the Delta Lahara Tub and Shower T17438 model, it does not require any silicone or caulking. Best regards, Tanya

Does this Lahara have separate temperature and volume controls?
Asked by: Deb
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # T17438 is equipped with two separate handles that sit on top of each other. One is for temperature control and the other is for volume control.
