Is this compatible with any Delta faucet?

I already use a Delta 3-hole widespread tub faucet (filler with knobs). Can I add this onto my existing faucet set-up or must I buy a whole new faucet-with-hand-shower combo?
I saw your diagram but don't understand as diverter and hand shower appear to be installed on a lower elevation from the tub filler and knobs, which does not make any sense. What line should the transfer valve line run to/from; can you please explain?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP14979 is used when you are adding a handshower to an existing roman tub faucet. You will need two holes for the installation and they can be installed along the same lines as the faucet.

What valve would be needed for this and a tub filler?

I'd like to have a Roman tub filler with a handshower where the handshower is installed near the middle to the head end of the tub, 3 - 5 feet from the main filler and valve. I've seen pictures so I know its possible in some way. Would this Roman Tub Handshower with Transfer Valve be able to be installed 3 - 5 feet from the main valve and filler? Would a special valve be needed or would the standard R4707 Flexible Roman Tub with Hand shower Rough work?
Thanks!

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. It is possible to install Delta Faucet model # RP14979 farther away than normal from your main valve and spout. You will need to install extra piping to reach the transfer valve that is not supplied by us. You will not need an special valve as the transfer valve will pull the water to the handheld shower.

I have a Roman Tub faucet and spout. Three holes for hot/cold/spout. Can this handshower be used?

If necessary I would purchase a whole new unit

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP14979 can be used with your existing roman tub. You will need to have two more holes drilled for this to work for you. One hole is for the handheld showerhead and the other hole is for the transfer valve.
