Delta’s Multichoice valve can be used for either a bathtub or shower. Make sure studs are 16″ on-center, even with each other, and plumb.

Delta’s Multichoice depth inside the wall is important and should be 2-3/4″ (+1/4″ or -1/4″) from the back wall to the front of the plaster guard. If walls are made from 2x4s simply add a 2×10 inside the wall and mount the Multichoice then check the depth.

The valve should be centered on the tub drain or shower drain. Delta recommends the bottom copper pipe be 8″ to 18″ for bathtubs. Also, only use copper pipe for this section of pipe and secure it to blocking inside the wall with a copper strap/galvanized screws.
