Hi Frank,

Thank you for your question. If you have a 600 series, this renovation kit will work with your valve and will convert the handle to a lever. It is available in Chrome, Stainless Steel, and Venetian Bronze.

Question

What are all the items I need to replace old Delta 600 series fixtures for tub/shower.

I am changing fixtures from polished brass with the crystal knobs to chrome in a bath. I think I need the 600 series renovation kit for the shower and tub. What other items do I need to go with it? Shower head, tub spout...Are there specific ones that are compatible and others that aren't. It appears the kit only provides the lever and parts for controlling water on/off and hot/cold.

Hi Wendy,

Thank you for your question! The shower arm and flange can be replaced with the RP6023 and RP6025. The shower head can be replaced with any model. The best replacement tub spout will depend on the installation type. Some models slip onto a smooth copper pipe, others thread or sweat on to the pipe with an adapter.

Question

Re-tiling over existing tiles on shower wall.

I am putting new tiles over existing tiles and this will bring this trim out approx. 5/16". The bonnet nut still shows with about 1/8" clearance behind it and the screws are long enough. The question is; will any of the trim interfere with the movement of the handle and if it does, is there an extension available? The old plastic handle would still work.

Question

What part do I need to fill the gap shown in the photograph?

I recently submitted a question to Delta inquiring if the existing acrylic ball on my 1600 series shower faucet could be replaced with an ADA compliant lever. Thank you for your advise and guidance. The lever (RP48717) fits and accommodates my needs very efficiently.

However, there is still a problem. In the attached photograph, you can see that there is a part missing between the base of the lever and the hole in the escutcheon. The distance from the hole in the escutcheon to the base of the lever is approximately 1-1/4 inches.

What part do I need to fill the gap shown in the photograph?

Question

Has Delta reversed the "H" and "C" symbols on the escutcheon to clear up confusion as to which way to turn the handle to get hot water?

2 of the reviews noted the position of the H and C symbols as confusing. Don't know when those reviews were written, but I'm considering purchase of this item in May of 2015.

Hi Vicki, Thank you for your question. When the RP54870 renovation kit is installed, the lever handle continues to work the same as how the original knob handle operated. You lift up to turn the water on, cold is to the right, and hot is to the left. This matches the H/C on the escutcheon. The confusion is that the bottom of the lever portion of the handle is now pointing the opposite way. It may help to picture this as a single handle kitchen faucet that has cold back and to the right and hot back and to the left.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your question! The RP54870RB will include all of the needed parts for the valve trim on a 600 series. A 600 series handle will tilt up and down to control the volume and left and right to control temperature, as well has having screws at 5 & 7 o'clock on the plate.

The tub spout, shower head, arm, and flange must be purchased separately. Please click the link below to browse our selection.

Hi Heather, Thank you for your question. The pictured faucet is a 600 series faucet. We offer the RP54870 renovation kit in chrome, (SS) brilliance stainless, and (RB) ventian bronze that will work with your existing rough in valve. To use the renovation kit you will have to plug the push button diverter with RP2865 and order a diverter tub spout.

Can I change my delta 600 series bathtub/shower faucet with push diverter with different model?

I would like to update my bathtub/shower single handle faucet with push diverter. It is 17 years old and the finish is pretty beat up. I would like to replace it with something other than chrome or stainless steel. Is there any other model that I can change it to without major work from a plumber? Thanks!

Hi Alrus, Thank you for your question. The RP54870 is the only renovation option for your 600 series faucet. You would need to plug the push button diverter with RP2865 and switch to a diverter tub spout with this kit.
The other option would be to change the complete faucet, trim and rough.

Not sure which model this is and which renovation kit will work

I want to purchase a renovation kit for this tub/shower set, but I'm not sure which series it is. The house was built in 1991 and these are the original fixtures.There is a push button diverter. I would like to update it with a brushed nickel or chrome finish kit. Please let me know which pieces I would need to purchase separately, also. Thanks!

Hi bmp111, Thank you for your question. If you have to lift the handle to turn on the pictured faucet it would be a 600 series faucet. You can use the RP54870 renovation kit to update the look to a chrome or brilliance stainless (SS) finish. You would want to cap off the push button diverter with RP2865 and then order a finish matching diverter tub spout. You would also need to replace the RP6023 shower arm, RP6025 shower flange, and the shower head of your choice.

Question

What do I need to replace a knob with a lever?

I would like to replace the existing plastic knob on my shower control to an ADA compliant lever. Photos of the current knob and cartridge are attached.

(1) This knob turns counterclockwise from off through cold to hot with no control of volume. I believe the cartridge number is RP1991. What parts or kits will I need to install a lever?

(2) Is it possible for the new lever to control volume as well as temperature? If so, will I need a different cartridge? What parts or kits will I need to install a lever that controls both volume and temperature?

Hi Marjorie, Thank you for your question. All you would need to convert your 1600 series faucet from the acrylic knob handle to an ADA compliant lever handle is the handle itself. We recommend using our RP48717 handle.

It is not possible to convert your existing faucet to a style that would allow you to control both water volume and water temperature. The entire faucet including the rough in valve would need to be replaced. Our current 17 series faucet trims and R10000 rough would offer this option.

Hi Nev, Thank you for your question. In addition to the lever style handle you would also need to order the RP20111 conversion ball to convert your 600 series faucet from the acrylic knob handle. The lever handle will not attach to the existing diamond shaped end of the ball assembly.

Question

Will this work with the 600 series round stem?

I have a Delta Brilliance Polished Brass shower and tub spout with pull down diverter that seems to be a 600 series with what Pfister's Universal Trim Kit says is a "round stem." It's like the one pictured, but instead of the circle piece with the slot in it, there is a circle piece with a triangle. The water turns on by lifting the handle, and adjusts hot or cold by moving the handle side to side. Will this kit work with that? And what kind of tub spout can I use to replace the pull down spout? I'm trying to renovate to a different color.

Hi Joby, Thank you for your question. The RP54870 600 series renovation kit comes in chrome, brilliance stainless, and venetian bronze finishes. The kit will come with the necessary parts to convert from the acrylic knob handle to a lever style handle.
We do not recommend using competitors parts with our faucets and doing so will void the product warranty.

how do you replace the diverter valve assembly on a series 600 delta shower/tub faucet?

water leaks out around the diverter valve stem when in the shower position so I assume the diverter valve assembly must be replaced. If there are other ways to stop this leak please please provide details.

Hi Walt, Thank you for your question. If the push button diverter on your valve is not working properly it can be unscrewed and replaced with a new RP5649. You would need to remove the handle and round escutcheon to access the diverter. The push button diverter will unscrew in a counter-clockwise direction.
