I currently have roughed in a R22000-WS valve. I am only running a shower head OR handset. Will I need a two setting diverter non shared? Does it matter that the handset is on the right side of the valve?
Thank you for your question. If you would like to run a hand shower and a shower head individually, without a shared setting for both units on at the same time, we would recommend the 2-setting non-shared diverter cartridge assembly, RP71717. The ports being used for two shower components must be the left and top ports. The right port must be plugged or the settings will not work properly.

What is the maximum flow rate that can be achieved through the T11851 2-function non-shared diverter cartridge?
We have a R10000-UNWSHF universal valve that feeds the water to the diverter. The diverter is being used to send water to the Series 17 shower head and to the tub spout. Problem is that the tub spout is filling a rather large air tub and as is the flow out of the spout is very low which we would like to increase. Trying to determine if there is something wrong with the universal valve or is the problem the diverter cartridge.
Thank you for your question. At 60 PSI you should get about 5 gallons per minute from either port of the diverter valve.
In a tub and shower installation, we recommend to use a diverter tub spout connected to the bottom port of the R10000 valve. However, high flow valves such as the R10000-UNWSHF do not have a bottom port as they are designed for shower only applications.

My "Master" plumber installed the R22000. In doing so did not read the instructions and piped to outlet 3 and capped off outlet 2.
My question is does Delta make cartridge that uses outlets 1 and 3 to replace RP71717 that uses 1 and 2.
Thank you for your question, Vinnievjb! The 3-Setting Non-shared Diverter Cartridge RP71718 will allow you to operate the top and right port. Note that it will have a single non-functioning setting, and the handle will not align with the markings on the trim. If plumbing codes allow and you wish to have shared settings, you can use the 6-Setting Diverter Cartridge RP51919.
Best regards, Jon

What materials is this part made up of? It looks like the main body is Brass and then the components are ceramic? Is there any plastic in it? I have a cartridge (from another brand) that has deteriorated because of the plastic parts. I'm looking to replace it with this Delta part. Do you also have measurements of this part please? Thanks.
Thank you for your question. It is a ceramic valve with a brass stem and body. This cartridge has other non-metallic internal components as well. It is approximately 4 1/8" long and 1 1/4" in diameter

can RP71717 cartridge work with R11000 rough-in?
I want to switch between 2 different outs, without sharing. I have the R11000 rough-in and the T11800 trim kit. Reading the instructions for the T11800, I see that in the middle position it'll send to both outs. I don't want it to send to both outs.
1.Can I use the RP71717 in place of the 3-function cartridge in the T11800?
2.Is there a different trim kit for the R11000 that uses a 2-function cartridge?
3. If neither of the above works, what combination of rough-in and trim kit do i need to have a valve with just 2 settings, (all one side or all the other)?
Thank you for your question! The RP71717 will work with the R11000 rough-in valve and T11800 trim. This will eliminate the shared function.
