Is it recommended to caulk around the T17T067 trim escutcheon plate?
The trim is snug against tile and has some kind of foam gasket inside. However, it seems inevitable that water will travel behind the trim and, possibly, into the wall. Is caulk required? Recommended?
Hi Steve, Thank you for your question. The escutcheon in the model T17T067 will seal with the foam gasket. You can seal with an additional bead of caulk if you desire, but it is not required.

My T17T067 turned all the way to hot is only warm
In my new build home, the shower valve when set to maximum hot only allows warm water. nearby faucets and other showers produce very hot water so its not a water temperature issue. Is this a something to do with the temperature feature of this shower valve? How do I correct?
Thank you for your question! The cartridge can be adjusted to allow for hotter water. Please see our How-To Video below for adjusting the Rotational Limit Stop.

Is hot water to the left or right?
My plumber just installed this valve trim. It seems that the hot water is to the right and the cold to the left. This is different than all my other delta faucets. Did he install it the wrong way?
Hi NY homeowner,
Thank you for your question! The hot side is normally on the left. Rotating the temperature dial counter-clockwise should increase the temperature. In a reverse or back-to-back installation, you can install the cartridge upside down to achieve the correct handle operation. Please click the link below to view the back-to-back installation instructions on page 3.

Can this be used for an exterior shower?
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately none of our shower faucets are specifically designed to be installed outdoors. They are not designed to withstand extreme cold weather conditions (freezing) or direct sunlight from the sun in the summer months.
If you do decide to install one of our faucets outdoors, then please remember that our warranty only covers manufactures defects. Damage incurred to the faucet by the extreme weather conditions are not covered by our warranty program.
