The idea behind this small piece is huge. The diverter lets you choose either your shower head, handshower or both. The lever is easy for anyone to use (no more push-pull knob). And the icing on the cake is you don't have to put any extra holes in your wall for a bracket. A+ all around! My remodeling/ updating customers love it.
Features important to me are...Craftsmanship, Ease of Installation
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sensible styling that complements any home. Classically styled faucets and accessories handle the toughest of tasks with ease. Hand shower must mount on deck; Handle can mount on deck or wall 69" long hose provides extended reach Flexible mounting arrangement allows design flexibility
 

I have a Roman Tub faucet and spout. Three holes for hot/cold/spout. Can this handshower be used?

If necessary I would purchase a whole new unit
You would need an additional two holes for this, and access to the valves underneath.

will this be compatible with most recent Delta handshowers?

Topics: Assembly
These bars and most brackets are meant to hold the cone nut of the hose, not the handshower itself, so it should fit any handshower.

Slide Bar functionality

There doesn't appear to be anything to control loosening and tightening the slide. Is it just not visible in the Picture? I am looking for an ADA compliant slide bar (1 1/4" bar) and am not concerned with having an ADA-compliant slide mechanism. I. also want to be able to have the handshower attached to the slide mount so that we can use it at various heights mounted to the slide bar. Am wanting something like your 57014 handshower with slide - but with a 1 1/4" bar to be ADA compliant. In Venetian bronze.
Topics: Features
These slide bars are NOT meant to support body weight which is what you're implying by looking for the 1 1/4" diameter. These would be ADA compliant only in the fact that they are easy to adjust the height. What you need is a grab bar. Take a look at these models, which will serve as a slide bar and the ADA compliant grab bar: http://www.deltafaucet.com/bath/showering-components/filter-results.html?sort=pricehighlow&type=type-showercomp-barsrails&tech=ada&function=bath-showering-components

replacing shower parts

We have a shower stall with delta parts. all are in polished brass with the clear center handle for turning on/off. our house was built in 1989. Can i chnage out my handle w/out getting a new valve assembly? we have no way of getting into the wall and was hoping the system inside would be compatable? we are upgrading to oil rubbed bronze and have bought all the other pieces from your windemere collection.
Topics: Assembly
Most of the older valves can be made to be compatible with the newer trims. First you would need to determine which valve is there. Does it simply rotate to turn off and on, going from cold towards hot? Or is there some type of push/pull motion for turning it on? Worst case scenario you can at least get some conversion parts (that are not decorative like the Windmere) but the finish will at least match.

What diverter valve goes with this?

We also want a rain shower in addition to the shower head and tub spout. What diverter valve can go with this that will match close enough? Our finish is brushed nickel. Lowe's and Home Depot do not carry these type of diverter valves, just the ones that connect on the shower head itself. We want it to be 'roughed in'.
Topics: Assembly
Probably the closest match (in my personal opinion) is the Linden, model # T11894, and you will need the valve as well which is R11000.

Does this kit include the rough-in valve?

If not, what more is needed for a complete installation?
Topics: Assembly
No, you need a universal valve R10000. You can select which particular model based on your connection type (sweat, threaded, PEX)

What is the rough-in valve connection type?

Is the connection to the supply lines/shower riser/tub spout sweat/compression/or ?

Is the elbow for the shower arm and/or tub spout included?

There are several options shown for the tub spout connection. Do they vary by model, or can you choose your preference?

What are the standard measurements for distances between:
A. The faucet and the top of the tub
B. The faucet and the valve
C. The valve and the shower head or
D. The shower head and the base of the tub
Topics: Assembly
There are a few different valve connection types depending on what you want or have existing. The basic model# is R10000 and then there will be letters at the end for the different ones. The trim kit you're looking at will work with any of those valves which must be purchased separately.

For your measurements, there are no standard measurements, with the exception of the distance from the center of the tub spout (I believe you're calling faucet) to the center of the valve, and that has to be between 8" to 18" inches.

Which accessory is compatable with Carlisle shower handle?

Would I be able to have the option of buying a sliding bar for Carlisle shower handle? Which brand is compatable and fits the Carlisle shower handle? Would you answer my question ASAP ?

Thank you very much!!

Amy
Topics: Purchase, Features
If you are referring to the slide bar for a handshower, any of them would be compatible. The holders all hold the cone nut of the hose not the handshower.

Why can't I use PEX line to install the tub spout for a 13/14 Series valve?

Why can't I use PEX line to install the tub spout for a 13/14 Series valve? Why is the length of run and number of elbows for this limited to between 8 and 18 inches and one 90 degree elbow?
Topics: Assembly
The problem with pex is that it creates too much friction inside which causes problems with the back pressure. You can use pex up to the valve from your water source, but to the diverter spout and shower head you should use copper. Using pex will create a problem such that when the water is turned on, the water will come out both the spout and showerhead.

where should I mount my pot faucet above the stove ?

There is not rule for the height. I usually suggest taking out your biggest pot, and have it mounted where the water coming out would be 2-3" above the pot.
