Hello, can the diverter on the handle be used to divert water to a handheld shower head? Or is it strictly a diverter between spout and shower head?
I am interested in installing this model along with a handheld showerhead. Just trying to figure out all the parts I will need.
Hi DCG, Thank you for your question. The model T17T492-RB uses a tub spout diverter. The 2 knobs on the valve trim control water volume, and water temperature. To add a hand shower to the model T17T492-RB you will need the R11000 diverter rough and the T11892-RB diverter trim. You would also need the R10000 multi choice universal rough for the tub/shower trim, the handshower, and the RP50560 wall elbow for a complete set up.

what type diverter I need except the hose and hand shower head?
Do I need another rough-in valve for the added diverter? If so, totally it need two valves, right?

I am interested in the T17T492 Addison shower kit. Are the shower head and tub spout metal or plastic???
Thank you for your question. The Delta Addison TempAssure Tub and Shower T17T492-SS faucet have both metal and non-metal parts. The shower head and tub spout are both non-metal and the handles and escutcheon plates are metal.

Compatibility with 59210-SS Adjustable Slide Handshower?
I want to use the stainless steel Delta Addison line for my bathroom remodel, and want to have a bathtub spout as well as an adjustable hand-shower option. This is for use in a children’s bathroom, so both the TempAsssure and adjustable slide-bar hand-shower are desirable features.
Are my only options to purchase both T17T492-SS and 59210-SS? It seems I will then end up with an extra/unnecessary showerhead. Thanks, Ryan
Hi Ryan , Thank you for your question. The choice of the T17T492-SS and the 59210-SS makes the most sense economically even though you end up with an extra showerhead. You could purchase the T17T092-SS trim, tub spout, shower arm and flange separately but at a slightly greater cost.

Bathtub Overflow Drain Cover
Can you suggest a bathtub overflow drain cover that would be compatible with the Addison style in Stainless finish? I tried searching through your website and couldn't find any. thanks!
Hi Ryan, Thank you for your question. There is not a over flow plate specifically made to match the Addison series faucets. Our stainless finish overflow plate is model RP6403SS.

I'm using the 6 setting diverter, 2 body sprays and tub spout. I would like to use the diverter to control the tub spout. Is this possible? If so, would I need the spout with or without the diverter? Any other installation instructions in order for the tub spout to be controlled by the 6 setting diverter would gladly be appreciated.
Thank you for your question. Although you can plumb your tub spout into a 6 setting diverter as one of the functions it is not recommended. A loss of pressure and shower rise, where water comes out the spout and showerhead at the same time may occur.

Is the showerhead adjustable?
Need to know whether or not the shower can be adjusted or not or is it come straight down with no ability to angle the spray.
Hi John, Thank you for your question. The showerhead that comes with the model T17T492 will pivot approximately 15 degrees in any direction. The showerhead is not in a fixed straight down position.
