Question

crystal ball set screw

I have a fifteen year old Delta shower body with push button diverter / its a bath tub installation. The crystal ball has broken. I am seeking a new crystal ball handle. I ordered two replacement knobs for the shower body, each supplier sent me a crystal ball with a straight set screw. The ball i seek to replace had a grey nylon insert which seated into the crystal ball. The set screw slid thru the ball ( and nylon) into the valve. The handles i ordered were different model balls and contained no nylon insert. Also the orientation of the handle wasn't quite the same as what i seek to replace. Can anyone tell me where i can get this old handle, screw and nylon?

Hi Larry, Thank you for your question. If you must lift up on your knob to turn the faucet on, you will have a 600 series faucet. The acrylic knob handle for this model is the RP17451. This knob is available to order on deltafaucet.com.

Question

My 600 series shower head is leaking. Would this kit solve this problem? Is there a separate cartridge I would need to buy?

Is there a way to know if this is a shower valve assembly problem instead? My 600 series is the plastic knob type that pulls up and is about 20 years old.

Hi Phil, Thank you for your question. The RP54870SS is a renovation kit for the 600 series tub/shower faucets that replaces the internal and external parts for the tub/shower control. This kit should stop a showerhead leak. Normally switching out the RP4993 seats and springs and cleaning the ball assembly will stop most leaks in a 600 series without the need for the renovation kit unless you want to update the look of your faucet trim.
Thanks,
Dave

Question

Use this kit to upgrade Delta 1600?

Can this reno kit be used on a Delta 1600 faucet that uses what appears to be an RP1991 cartridge? Can you replace the cartridge with the ball? If not what valve(s) are compatible w/ this reno kit, as there does not appear to be a trim upgrade in antique bronze for the 1600 faucet.

Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. Currently there is not a renovation kit available for the 1600 series faucets, the 600 kit will not work. The trim sleeve and escutcheon are still available for the 1600, but only in the chrome finish.

Question

Yes or no: 1. can this be done without access from behind wall? 2. without removing tiles?

I need to replace a 600 series with push button diverter with new faucet and I know I need the plug for the hole where diverter was and I need a new tub spout with diverter.

I think I'm clear that replacing faucet and adding plug can be done without access from behind and no tile removal, but I'm not clear that new tub spout with diverter can be installed without access from behind and without tile removal. please clarify.

Hi Junkmail,
Thank you for your question. If you are planning on installing RP54870 you should be able to do this without access from behind the wall or removing your tiles. Everything installs on the wall or through the front of the unit. You are correct that you will need to change to a spout with diverter.Installation of the tub spout may vary depending on how it was originally installed but you still can accomplish this from outside the wall. The part number of the plug for the push button diverter is RP2865.
Thanks,
Dave

Question

is this a Delta 600 series

I just want to replace the escutcheon, screws and knob. I'm not sure that I have a 600 series and whether it is the "deep" model. It certainly looks deep to me. I'm attaching photos.

Question

Handle rotation

With my current shower I must push the shower handle up to get the water to run and then twist it to change the temperature. If I use this conversion kit will I still need to pull the handle up to start the water flow or will I just twist the handle to start and stop the water flow like with other showers?

Those peices will need to be chosen separately.

Thank you for your question. When upgrading with Delta Faucet RP54870RB if you already had a lever handle on your faucet, we recommend not using the conversion ball that is included with the new kit.

If you had a crystal ball and have now switched to a lever handlel using the conversion ball included with your kit, your hot and cold may not be switched. The lever handle turns so that the top of the handle points to the temperature of the water. When the hot water is on, the bottom of the lever will be pointing to the right. When the cold water is on, the bottom of the lever will be pointing to the left.

Question

Does the renovation kit work with the 600 series shower faucet that came with a metal handle?

I believe that my shower faucet has the RP70 stainless ball in the valve and not the RP212 that the kit references. Is the RP20111 a replacement or upgrade for the RP70? I am pretty sure the valve body is the same.

Thanks

I would like to get the renovation kit for the 600 series tub and shower, but what tub spout will fit into the existing piping?

The tub spout I have screws on to a male coupling. Are there any delta tub spouts that will go with the 600 series renovation kit in the bronze color? The piping sticks out about 1.5 inches from the wall.

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP54870RB is the Venetian Bronze finish. It will most closely match the Oil Rubbed Bronze finish. You then will need to pick out a showerhead, tub spout, and showerarm and flange with model numbers that contain RB on the end so it will all match.

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP54870SS is a renovation kit for the 600 series. If you do have a diverter on your escutcheon plate, you will also need to purchase the RP2865 push button diverter plug and then pick a tub spout that has a diverter included on it.

To use this part, you will need to make sure the water is off. After installing the ball assembly, you will need to insert this plug into the hole where the push button diverter was so it will be plugged up.

Question

ow to convert from push-in diverter to tub spout diverter?

I have a 600 series faucet with the crystal ball. If I use this renovation kit RP54870, is there anything else I need to do to convert it to a tub spout diverter other than just buying RP19895 and the plug cap RP2865. Any plumbing additions or alterations or just screw on new tub spout?

Question

It appears the the after this conversion kit is installed push button divertor is not needed. Is that true?

How is the water then diverted between the tub faucet and the shower head? Do I need to buy other items to completely convert the 600 series into the 1300 series?

Question

Can I replace my existing tub/shower valve with a current model.

I have a 20 year old shower and tub valve, the kind with a crystal ball handle that moves up and down to turn the water on and off, and turns to adjust the temperature. The valve still works fine, but it is in shiny brass and we would like to convert to stainless or brushed nickel. I am looking for a replacement valve that can use the existing valve body so the conversion can be made from the front without tearing out drywall to access the interior plumbing. Most of the current valves use a lever handle, and I would like to know if I can install one of these in the existing valve body. Volume control is desirable but not essential. I don't have any identifying information on the existing valve, but it would have been contractor grade from 1992.
