Installation Information


Rated 1 out of 5 by from Keeps failing I have bought three replacements, excluding the original, over the past 3+ years. Once again the shower is pulsing, meaning the cartridge is malfunctioning. I can't figure out why it only lasts for about one year at a time. I need something that works. Not just something that looks pretty. We paid a lot of money on this product and it does not meet its expectation for performance. We bought this from a speciality supplier, not a box-store, and had it professionally installed as part of our bathroom remodel. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Delta Cartridge The replacement worked fine. This was a new installation, so the initial one was defective (it leaked). The replacement part was provided for free, but the plumber to replace it was not free. I have concerns about quality control for this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll never want to go back to the old way So this valve has two parts - one valve the sets temperature, another turns the water off on. Set you idea water temp, and that's it. You don't need to touch it anymore! So the morning ritual is turn shower on, wait a minute, and the water temp is *always* perfect. Changes to water pressure, temperature are all controlled in the cartridge. It's freakin perfect. You'll never go back....

Can I put the RP47201 Thermostatic Valve in a Victorian Shower Trim handle, as a replacement for the Dual-Function Monitor® Pressure-Balanced Valve Cartridge? Do I have to replace the trim as well?

Asked by: rbuergel
Hi, Rbuergel! Thank you for your question. The trim kit would have to be changed to the Delta TempAssure 17T series to use the RP47201 valve cartridge assembly. Best Regards, Rosanna

How do you get the old cartridge (RP47201) out of the sleeve after the bonnet is removed?

Asked by: Ted
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP47201 should pull out after the bonnet is removed. It is possible that it is stuck in the valve due to mineral deposits. We recommeend using a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water to dissolve the mineral deposits.

What is the flow rate of this Cartridge with the Delta R10000-UNBXHF? Also, is there a way to use this cartridge with the T17259-BL?

Asked by: Matt
Hi, Matt! Thank you for your question. The flow rate for the RP47201 valve cartridge assembly with the R10000-UNBXHF is 9.4 gpm at 60 PSI and 10.7 gpm at 80 PSI. The RP47201 valve cartridge assembly will not work with the T17259-BL. The correct valve cartridge assembly for the T17259-BL is RP46463. Best Regards, Rosanna

installed this cartridge and the hot and cold temp handle does not seem to work just get cold water no matter which way i turn it

Asked by: WILLIAM
Thank you for your question, WILLIAM! Please make sure the marking for the hot side of the cartridge is correctly placed on the side of the hot water inlet, which is typically to the left side of the valve body depending on how this was originally installed. Further information on adjusting the temperature for a thermostatic trim can be found on page 7, step 4 of the Maintenance and Installation manual below. Please feel free to contact us directly if you have questions or need further assistance. https://media.deltafaucet.com/MandI/68883%20Rev%20I.pdf Best regards, Edward

Can I replace a dual-function pressure-balanced cartridge with this one?

I currently have the Multichoice valve and the T17430 trim set, but was wanting to change to thermostatic cartridge. Can I just swap the cartridges, or do I need to get a different trim set?
Asked by: Jennifer
Hi Jennifer, Thank you for your question. You would need to install a T17T series trim kit, which will include the cartridge. However, you can use the existing rough-in valve. Best regards, Jon

Does this cartridge have back flow protection to prevent hot and cold water cross over?

Asked by: BertYo
Hello BertYo, Thank you for your question. The Delta Thermostatic valve cartridge assembly RP47201 has an inner wax that melts from the hot water so if cold water gets there it will cause the cartridge to shut down. There is no back flow protection with this part. Best regards, Tanya

Hi, I'd like an all metal trim kit to match this valve.

I'm using the Delta R10000-UNWSHF valve body, which should work, attached to a HF 2.5 gpm Speakman head I want no plastic showing anywhere. It's hard to tell what your trim kits are made of. Not too concerned about style. Simple round plates are my preference. I already have the valve, so I just need the trim bits

Hi JohnG, Thank you for your question. Our 17T series TempAssure valve-only trim kits will have all metal parts. Please click the link below to browse our selection. Select "TempAssure" under Technology to narrow down your search. https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/showering Best regards, Jon
