Answer: 
Hi Genius, Thank you for your question. The only difference between the 144984-OB and the 144984-OB-A is in the packaging. The faucet components are the same.
Thanks,

Hi Sage, Thank you for your question. The model 144984-BN is a complete faucet including the rough in valve. The trim is not available to order separately without the tub spout or showerhead. The individual trim pieces are available to be ordered as individual items. Here is a link to the parts breakdown should you choose to order the desired parts.

Answer: 
Hi Gene, Thank you for your question. In 1994 we had several different series of faucets that would have "Monitor" on the escutcheon. If your faucet has a single control that only controls the temperature, not the volume of the water and turns counter-clockwise to turn on and clockwise to turn off you can use the model 144984-OB trim with your existing rough in valve. The new faucet will come with a new cartridge. The new cartridge will not fit your existing rough in valve. You will have to continue to use your existing cartridge or order a new RP19804.
If your current faucet offers a single handle that controls water volume, and a smaller knob at the end of the handle that controls water temperature you will have to replace the rough in valve to be able to use the 144984-OB.
Thanks,
Dave

Need to know if 2.0 gpm cartdridge on porter 144984 can be replaced with a delta cartridge with 2.5 gpm or more. Pressure is coming into home is not the issue, we have high pressure on other faucets/sinks in home. Thanks.

Answer: 
Hi Mavman70, Thank you for your question. The cartridge in the model 144984 is rated at higher than 2.0 gpm. It is the showerhead itself that is rated at the 2 gallons per minute flow rate. You can switch out the showerhead to one with a greater flow rate. The connection is a standard 1/2" pipe connection.
Thanks,
Dave

Mounting fixture

It appears to me that this fixture is held in place by the supply plumbing and the Escutcheon, is that the case? And what is the maximum/minimum dimensions for the size of the hole through the wall for the trim sleeve?

Answer: 
Hi Al, Thank you for your question. We recommend that the model 144984-BN be attached to a stringer behind the wall to hold the fixture in place. The trim sleeve is approximately 2-3/8" wide. The hole can be the size of the plaster guard which is 4" x 4".
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Based on the picture, your faucet looks like the 1300 series. The way to tell this is if you turn your faucet to the right or left to turn it on. If you have to push up and then turn it to the right or left, you have a 600 series valve. We do make a renovation kit for the 600 series with model # RP54870SS.

If you determine that you have a 1300 series faucet, then you can replace it with any trim but use the cartridge that you already have in the wall.

Apparently I have very good water pressure and the pressure is much too high. I run out of hot water before I ever finish my shower. Is there a replacement that goes with this set that I can change out to control the volume of water coming out of the shower head and spout? the middle piece that controls the on and off I guess is what I would need.

I know I can chnage the shower head but that doesn't sole the issue when I run bathwater.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The Celice series is only available for tub/shower combination in the 1400 series. The 1400 series only has temperature control on the handle. If you would like to control the volume too, you will need to switch out your trim for a 1700 series model in another style.

faceplate on turnon valve

Customer avatar

Drew
Gardnerville, NV, USA
There is one screw on the lower left and the second screw on the upper right of the faceplate. The screws need to match what valve is currently in or the tile has to be ripped out. Can I use this Delta product to replace what I have now which has the two screws on the lower left and lower right under where the water is turned on?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Based on your description and the placement of your screw holes, this trim will not work for you.

You may have a 600 series if you turn on your water by pushing up and then turning right or left. If this is the case, we do offer a rennovation kit in Chrome, Venetian Bronze, and Stainless Steel. The model number is RP54870.

Thank you for your question! Delta Faucet model #144984-OB can be adjusted to run as a tub only model. The valve body (Delta part #R10000-UNBX) will need to be plugged at the shower outlet with part #RP20032 or RP76.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 144984-OB has a couple of bath waste assemblies that are similar in color but not exactly the same color. There is Delta Faucet model # RP691RB which is a trip lever. There is also Delta Faucet model # RP693RB which is a toe operated drain. This finish is a Venetian Bronze and it will compliment the Oil Rubbed Bronze but it is not exactly the same.
