Does the RP 71718 or any divertor cartridge restrict the water flow from the valve to the shower head, rain head, etc? I am planning to install a high flow valve to maximize the amount of water that goes to the shower and rain heads.

Asked by: Irish Don
Thank you for your question, Irish Don! Any restriction from a diverter trim would be minimal depending on the trim kit used and PSI to the home. For example, an R10000-UNBX rough in valve is capable of producing 6.3 gpm at 60psi whereas the high flow version, R10000-HF will produce approximately 7.3gpm. Adding an R11000 diverting valve will lower this to 5.3 gpm or 6.3 gpm respectively. For the maximum 10.7 gpm, a 17T series is recommended with a high flow rough-in valve giving you about 9.7gpm. https://www.deltafaucet.com/design-innovation/innovations/shower/tempassure-valve--monitor-valve Best regards, Edward

I have 3 appliances on a diverter, I want each one to function separately. Will a 3 function nonshared cartriage work?

Asked by: Patrick the plumber
Thank you for your question, Patrick the plumber! In order for all three components to function independently, the Delta 3 Setting Non-Shared Diverter-RP71718 is advised, however there will not be a shared function on these products. For shared functions as well, you will need to use a six-function diverter cartridge RP51919 which will allow the use of each separately as well as three shared settings. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP51919 Best regards, Edward

Can a RP71718 diverter cartridge run the shower head and hand held shower head at the same time or a RP51919 diverter cartridge

Asked by: Billy36
Hi, Billy36! Thank you for your question. We recommend to use a Delta 3 Setting Diverter-RP51918. This will give a shared setting for both and two separate settings. The Delta 3 Setting Non-Shared Diverter-RP71718 is used if you have 3 components of water. For example a raincan shower head, hand shower, and regular shower head. You will have a separate setting for each, but no shared setting. The Delta 6 Setting shared Diverter-RP51919 is used with 3 components of water, as well, but you will have three separate settings and three shared settings. Best Regards, Rosanna

I have the r11000 valve, with shower head above and handheld on the right. i plugged the left port. I have the 3 function 2 port trim kit. What are my options to get the flow to the right? RP71718, RP51919, or is there something else?

Asked by: yesman
Thank you for your question, Yesman! To use a 3 setting trim, the left port would need to be used for your hand shower and the right port must be plugged. You can either replumb this in your wall or a quicker fix would be to purchase the 6 setting cartridge, RP51919. It will give you 3 blank settings but you'll have 3 settings that will work, single setting for hand shower, single setting for shower head and a shared setting for both. Best regards, Tanya

So bought this cartridge from amazon and it came in a delta box but says fluhs 72122 on the part is this right? Also using the r2200 rough in with this part and the Delta T24867 trim. Will i be able to plumb tub spout, hand shower and rain to operate se

Asked by: Jobu
Hello Jobu, Thank you for your question. The Delta Angular Modern 14 Series T24867 Trim kit comes with the 3-Setting Shared Diverter Cartridge assembly RP51918. The RP71718 is a 3-Setting Non-Shared Diverter cartridge assembly, that can be purchased separately, if you are connecting showering items to all three ports of the diverter valve. The MultiChoice Rough-In R22000 valve is not designed to be used with a tub spout. However, you may connect a non-diverter tub spout to one of the diverter ports as a temperature tester. Since the flow rate from the spout would be lower than a standard installation, we do not recommended to use it as a tub filler. Best regards, Tanya

So, this unit will ONLY allow 3 SEPARATE functions, ie shower, rain shower, arm shower? Combinations of any 2 are restricted?

Live in California, if I have combination options, then I will have to live with further restrictions on water flow. Only 2gpm are allowed. So if combinations of any 2 are available, then TOTAL of any 2 is still 2gpm. That is the reason I want to ensure that this non-share cartridge only allows 1 function at a time. Otherwise, I will need to use multiple valves.
Asked by: RJs
Hi RJs, Thank you for your question! This cartridge allows flow to only one port at a time. It does not have shared settings. Best regards, Jon

can you use the rp71718 3 function non shared cartridge with a 3 function trim kit

Asked by: deave
Hi deave, Thank you for your question. The 3-Setting Non-Shared Diverter Cartridge is designed to work with a 6-Setting Diverter Trim. However, you may use it with a 3-Setting Trim, but the handle will not align with the marks on the escutcheon plate in all three settings. Best regards, Jon

RP71718 or RP51919?

I have a R18222XO that I want to control a shower head and jets on a T18230. I will cap the extra aux outlet on the rough-in. I would like to use the jets alone, the shower head alone, or use them both simultaneously. Does the RP51919 have extra features that I will not use? Will the RP1718 let me do this at a lower cost compared to the RP51919? What does it mean when the RP1718 is 3-function but not shared? Cheers
Asked by: Burt
Hi Burt, Thank you for your question! The RP51919 would have additional non-working functions if you are not using the extra outlet. The RP71718 would also have a non-working function and would not allow you to run the jets and shower head together. You will need the RP51918 3-setting diverter cartridge. If you have the T18230 instead of the T18230-XO trim, you will also need the RP51920 sleeve. http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp51918.html http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp51920.html Best regards, Jon
