Porter Monitor® 14 Series Tub and Shower Trim & Rough 2 5 2 2
Flimsy and no water pressure control I just bought a house with this faucet in the bath. I hate that I can't control the water pressure - it's like the type of faucet found in a cheap motel. The faucets in the sinks are beautiful and work well and the accessories are very pretty (tp holder, towel racks). My water was coming out luke warm at best, I figured there was a scald control and tried to take the handle off, the screw stripped and after I got that out it didn't slip off like in the video, the plastic parts inside broke and now it doesn't work. I agree with other reviews that it is flimsy and wish it had pressure control. I love Delta products and will likely buy a different style to replace this now broken one. March 14, 2014
Nice design, poor performance To be fair, I ‘got what I paid for’ and I made assumptions. I didn’t realize that you cannot control the water pressure on this unit and Delta didn’t make it obvious on the packaging. You can only control the hot cold mix and that is it. Yuck! Also the installation instructions should be a little clearer. Do not forget to put at least eight inch drop pipe on the tub spout or water will flow out of the shower head. Very disappointing to find this out after is installed. April 5, 2013

Hi jdwall179, Thank you for your question. The RP47841OB tub spout that comes in the model 144984-OB-A is made to screw onto a 1/2" fitting in the nose of the spout. You will want to install the 1/2" copper tube with 1/2" male adapter so that the end of the adapter projects out from the finished surface 3-7/8" to 4".
Thanks,
Dave

Will this series work with the rp12307?

Already had the rp12307 adapter on the pipe but the spout doesn't have the internal plastic piece that screws on. Was it supposed to? It shows that type of installation in the manual.

Hi Jessica, Thank you for your question. The diverter tub spout that comes in the model 144984-BN-A does not use and is not compatible with the RP12307 tub spout adapter. The RP47841BN tub spout does not include an adapter and threads directly onto 1/2" pipe threads in the nose of the spout. The manual shows all 3 types of tub spout installations. The RP43161SS, RP42915SS, and the RP34357SS are all similarly styled spouts that use the RP12307 adapter.
Thanks,
Dave

Can increase water flow?

We have discovered in reading the answer to a previous person's question that we inadvertently purchased a " water sense" fixture 144984-OB-A. Can this be changed to a non water sense head? We are on our own well so water conservation is not a problem. If so what would be the procedure, model # etc. We purchased it at home depot.

Hi Jim, Thank you for your question. The RP62171OB showerhead that comes in the 144984-OB-A is rated at 2.0 gallons per minute. You can purchase any of our showerheads that flow at a higher rate to replace this model. The shower arm connection is a standard 1/2" pipe thread.

Can you change the cartridge to increase water pressure?

I replaced my shower faucet with this model and the water pressure is significantly weaker. Is there a replacement cartridge available that will work with this faucet that allows more flow/pressure? Any other way to increase flow if that is not possible?

Answer: 
Hi HSims, Thank you for your question. The cartridge affects water flow, but not water pressure. That is determined by the water pressure coming into your home. The showerhead that comes with the model 144984-OB-A is a watersense labeled product that flows at 2.0 gallons per minute compared the standard 2.5 gpm of most showerheads. This feature may be where you are seeing the loss of water flow.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Mike,
Thank you for your question. The movement of the lever handle on the Porter model 144984-OB is only from 3 to 12 o-clock. If the water is not getting hot enough you may have to adjust your rotational limit stop underneath the handle. I have attached the instructions on how to do this.
Thanks,
Dave

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 144984-OB-A contains a rotational limit stop that may need adjusting to allow more hot water to flow through the valve. Included here are the instructions to adjust the rotational limit stop. The directions are on page 7.

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 144984-OB-A contains the valve assembly in the box for a complete faucet. It is not compatible with a Moen valve and the valve will need to be replaced with a Delta valve to be able to use this faucet.

Hi Leon! Thanks for your question. Porter Monitor® 14 Series Tub & Shower Trim (144984-OB-A) comes with the R10000-UNBX rough, and it will accept the RP46463. However, you will need to order new trim to fit that cartridge.

Will Monitor 14 Series Trim replace Monitor 1400 Series Trim?

I have an existing installed Tub & Shower Trim in chrome that has "Monitor" and "1400 Series" printed on it. Will the Monitor 14 Series Tub & Shower Trim work as a replacement? I want to switch from the existing chrome to Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting Delta Faucet Company.

You need to first make sure your trim plate has the screws at the 1 and 7 o'clock position. If so, then any of our model trims that start with T13 or T14 will work to replace your trim.

Secondly, these new trims come with a cartridge. The cartridge will only fit the Multichoice rough. If your cartridge is not leaking, then do not replace it, it will be fine. If your cartridge is leaking, the new cartridge will replace it only if your cartridge has a gray colored cap (cap can be seen after removing the handle). If the color of your cap is white, then you would need to order RP19804.

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model number # 144984-OB-A can be broken up and used in different showers. However, you will need to plug the tub spout in the valve for the 144984-OB-A. You should be able to purchase a plug at your local wholesaler or retailer.
