Question

I do not know what series Delta shower I have. I want to change my chrome fixture to ss.

Will the Delta Renovation Kit 600 Series fit on my existing shower. I know I need to purchase the plug. Is it as simple as buying a tub spout with a pull up knob.

Hello John, Thank you for your question!
Your unit is our Delta 600 series tub/shower. The RP54870 renovation kit will work. You will need the RP2865 diverter plug to plug off the opening for your push button diverter and purchase either a pull up or pull down diverter tub spout.

Question

Looks same as my 1600 series anti scald model. Can I replace with this unit?

I would like to update and change the color of my two showers from gold to chrome and gold to bronze.

This Delta Renovation Kit-600 Series Tub & Shower, including the escutcheon and screw hole locations look exactly like what I currently have.

The current fixtures, have the old crystal ball handle, however, it has what looks like the 1600 series anti scald cartridge instead of the ball.

Will this replacement kit work?

Hi John B, Thank you for your question!
The RP54870 600 series renovation kit will not work with the 1600 series unit. The only kit we have for the 1600 series is the RP77740 kit which is available in chrome only. To use any other trim you would need to replace the valve body behind your wall.

Best regards.

Question

Are stops built in to the Delta 600 series?

The hot and cold feed into the valve each have a screw driver slotted, threaded bolt in the center of a nut on each side of the valve. Are these stops or some kind of adjusters? Do I back off the nut to turn the screw? Problem is low hot water flow. Cold water O.K. I suspect a blockage on hot water side of ball valve.
Thanks in advance

Question

Renovation Kit

Hi,

I have a picture of my tub and shower handles that were original with our home (1995). Will this renovation kit work to replace these? I see that I will need a plug for the diverter opening in the tub faucet. What other parts do I need?

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Lisa,

Thank you for your question! You have a 1500 series tub/shower unit. Unfortunately, we do not have a trim kit for 1500 series units with screw holes at 5 and 7 o'clock. However, we do have some replacement parts available. I have attached the parts diagram.

Question

How to identify?

I don't know what series my shower controls are. Pretty much necessary information from what I'm reading. It has a round ball handle going left for hot and right for cold. Up for volume. I want to change handles to a newer design. I am enclosing a photo of one of them. You might see thread material at the top of the control. I also want to get new escutcheons

Thanks

Hi Jim, Thank you for your question!
I have determined you have our 600 series tub/shower. It is a discontinued unit and none of the current trims we offer will fit onto the existing valve body. However, we do manufacture a renovation kit part number RP54870. The kit comes with the escutcheon(face plate), screws, sleeve, dome shaped cap assembly, lever handle and internal parts. You will have to order your choice of shower head, shower arm, shower flange and tub spout separate. The kit is available in Chrome, Venetian bronze and Stainless Steel finish. The kit can be viewed on our website www.deltafaucet.com. I hope this information is helpful.

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your question! This kit will work with any 600 series shower. All shower units with a ball assembly are part of the 600 series.

However, please note that if you have a push-button diverter, you will need to cap off the diverter hole in the valve and use a diverter tub spout instead.

Jon

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.

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.

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.

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.
