Independent Volume Control: Dual-control valve trims are what separate Delta showers from the competition. The top, smaller handle controls temperature, while the bottom, larger dial controls the water volume (flow rate). The distinct advantage to this is that you can set the temperature control to a temperature you like, and then leave it, turning the shower on and off each time with the volume control. You’ll never have to fuss with the temperature again.
Monitor: Delta Monitor showers feature pressure balance valve cartridges, which protect against sudden temperature or pressure changes to keep the water in the shower within a safe +/- 3°F. Monitor valves also feature a high-temperature limit stop that can be adjusted to suit your shower needs.
Touch Clean: Only Delta offers showers equipped with Touch Clean soft, rubber nubbins (spray holes) that allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up with the touch of a finger. This is particularly helpful for areas with hard water.
MultiChoice Valve: Flexibility is the big benefit of the MultiChoice Universal Valve. Once the MultiChoice rough is installed, future shower function upgrades or style changes can easily be made without altering the plumbing behind the wall.

excellent productSingle handle up and down turns it on and off and sets the flow of the water. The smaller control sets the temperature of the water. When you turn the water on again for your next shower, the temperature of the water will be the same as you set it the last time. The shower head is 5 inches in diameter and puts out plenty of water. The polished bronze is also a nice rich color.

Delta T17278 trim kitI ordered two of these along with two Delta R10000-UNBX Universal T/S Valve Bodies, and installed one on each end of our shower.
These look great installed and work very well.
p.s. If more water is desired , you can remove the restrictors in the shower head inlet and control water volume via the control valve. We love our new shower

Great purchaseGreat price and fast shipping. Plumber had no trouble installing. We've been using it for 3 months now with no issues. The pressure is perfect (we have bad water pressure to begin with and it's been great). I was worried the head would be too big and splash all over the place since we have an open shower, but we found the right angle for the head and it works fine. Would definitely buy from here again.

updated showerWe really like the independent volume control. Once you set the temp, you can turn the shower on and off with the volume control without having to adjust the temp again. Also, I like to turn the volume down while lathering without messing with the temp.

Great shower unit!I love the extra large shower head that comes with this unit. The Delta series 17 handle is also great as it allows you to separately control the temperature and pressure of your shower. This is a great product that is both beautiful and functional!
A. The Delta T17078 is the trim without the shower head.
Do you make a longer rod for the shower head. It doesn't extend into the shower far enough.
A. The Delta RP40593SS is a 7" shower arm. There are a couple others as well like the Delta RP46870.
I don't need the shower head. Can I just get the valve trim only?
A. The Delta T17278 without the showerhead would be the Delta T17078.
what is the size of the rod for the shower head that comes with the T17278?
A. The Delta T17278 shower arm is 6 inches long.
i currently have a 1400 series shower trim looking to replace to venetian bronze. any trim/hanlde compatiable?
A. The Delta T17278 uses the same valve as the 17 series valve. As long as you have a multichoice rough-in you can use any of the single handle series trims.
Is there a deck mount tub faucet in the Leland Collection that doesn't include the spray handle?
A. There is the T2775 for the J spout, T2778 for the teapot spout, and the T2778 which is the teapot spout but in the smaller sized garden tub version.
Can I purchase this but use the Delta RP64095 Victorian multifunction showerhead with it? Or the Delta RP43381 multifunction showerhead with it?
A. The Delta T17278 can be used with both the RP43381 and the RP64095. Either one will work with the system.
Please explain the difference between Delta T-17278 and T-17278-H20
A. The Delta T17278 and the Delta T-17278-H20 are essentially the same thing. Only difference is the shower heads. They are both a single function shower head but they are different shapes. Item T-17278-H20 shower head is also a water saver uses less water per minute.
What is the difference between Delta T17278 and Delta T17278-H20
A. The Delta T17278 and the Delta T17278-H20 are the same units besides the shower heads. Item T17278-H20 is a water saver using less water per minute and the shape of the shower head is different than that of the T17278.
What's the difference betwen T17278 and T17t278? different rough needed?
A. The Delta T17278 has a dual function pressure balance cartridge and the Delta T17t278 has a dual-function thermostatic cartridge.
Is this faucet pressure balanced? The specs say it is, but the multi choice valve that goes with it is not pressure balanced.
A. The Delta T17278 is a pressure balanced system. Delta's 17 series still allows you to control the temp and volume even though it's pressure balanced.
Will both the MultiChoice Universal Valve and the Monitor Pressure Balance Valve work with this faucet? Or are they the same thing? I can't find the Monitor Pressure Balance Valve on this website.
A. Correct they do work together. The cartridge actually comes with whatever trim you choose to purchase. However, the valve body is the same.
