Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ArmyVeteranMike Great product. Easy installation.
Screw the valve into a piece of plywood or secure on some surface to tighten female pipe adaption into diverter. I used "Sioux Chief Model # HD647-CG2 Internet # 205058319 Store 1/2 in. Lead Free Brass Slip x FIP Adapter" female brass to cpvc transitions, worked great. The Delta Arzo Model 17, fit great and looks very classy. Delta is best quality.
Also a Price Phister diverter for the outlet control is installed inline below.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lupinlady Great! I love it!
Set the temperature once, then each time all you have to do is turn the water on. Once you learn to sweat solder its a piece of cake to install. It can also be installed using threaded fittings but I think soldering it is easier. The instructions were easy to follow with lots of pictures. I did the work myself.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Plumber Would not recommend to ANYONE
This valve is the newest design by delta, I have been a plumber for 30+ years and delta USED to be my valve of choice. NO LONGER. Reason #1 They used to be American made, now they are made in china.
During my years as a plumber I have made many mistakes, I will admit. But this valve is not what you are looking for!!!
Reason #2 You cannot use anything but copper or iron pipe for the tub spout drop. Pex and wirsbo are the modern more durable answers to the issues with copper and galvanized pipe. If you use Pex or wirsbo the MINISCULE difference in the I.D. of the pipe causes enough back pressure to make your shower dribble while the tub spout is engaged. The engineering team that designed this "wonderful" valve should look into the future and realize that copper and galvanized pipe both corrode and build up scale and will eventually have to be repalced. (Read bust tile and open walls) they should have made the diverter opening larger so that the faucet would operate properly with the modern piping .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PC144 Now I understand.
I didn't really understand why this was needed but now I get it. It allows all the behind the wall plumbing to be done and then you can change fixtures and do maintenance without tearing into the walls again. Easy to work with and a really clever design. In hindsight I would get the version with "screw stops" which allow you to shut off the water at the valve for maintenance. Only a few bucks more.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Believe Delta
For the volume/temp/trim kit/faucet handle I picked Delta identies this part as necessary. Believe them. I had a plumber install and he said it was "fine" - - which means the install was a piece of cake -- since my plumber is always grouchy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hallertau Delta MultiChoice tub & shower valve kit is an excellent value
The Delta MultiChoice Universal Tub and Shower valve body rough in kit was recommended for the shower head and faucet combination I purchased. The valve rough in kit is an excellent product with good, understandable instructions. It is easy to set up and install. The hot water limit function is easy to understand and set. After almost a year of using this I am extremely satisfied with the daily performance.
