We Asked PROs: Delta Shower Rough-In Valve Edition

Many plumbers prefer Delta because it is easy to install, with a good design and straightforward instructions. The Delta Shower Valve R10000-UNBX is no exception. This valve is universal, meaning it will work with copper, iron, and PEX piping.

Other advantages include compatibility with single or dual function trim, the ability to be tested with air or water using only the test cap, and back-to-back capability. In this article, we discuss the benefits of installing the Delta R10000 valve, and how our SUPPLY.com PROs have found it useful.

Delta’s Universal Valve

The R10000 is a tub and shower valve so it works best in a set up for both a bath and shower, though it will also work in a shower-only setting. Fortunately, there’s a variety of bath and shower fixtures that it will work with, as this valve is universally compatible with all piping and Delta trims.

We recommend the Delta Cassidy Tub and Shower Faucet (pictured below). The Cassidy faucet is perfect for any setting with its timeless, classic style. It comes in Chrome, Stainless Steel, Champagne Bronze, Venetian Bronze, and Polished Nickel. Other features include volume control, scald guard, Low Lead Compliant, and ADA Compliant.

Universal Benefits

A great benefit of the Delta universal valve is that, if you or your customer needs to renovate the shower later, the plumbing behind the wall won’t need to be altered. The valve will work with any Delta components that are added in the future.

This saves plumbers time, and saves the customer money. Additionally, Delta’s Limited Lifetime Warranty on the valve will save any headaches of purchasing new products if something were to go wrong.

The PRO Opinion

We recommend this valve, but you don’t have to take our word for it. We asked two of our PROs what they thought after installing the Delta R10000 valve on their latest project:

“This was very easy to install and there have been no issues. Delta is excellent quality and we use it for almost every project.”
