Rated 4 out of 5 by wre288 Easy Conversion
I replaced a brass crystal knob faucet with this conversion unit. The conversion was easy. My only problem is that the lever handle seems counterintuitive for hot and cold. With the old faucet, you turned the knob clockwise for cold. With the lever handle, clockwise is for hot. Since the H and C markers are on the top of the escutcheon, one would expect the top of the lever handle to point to the selected water temp, but the opposite is true. When the top of the handle points to C, the handle is turned clockwise, and you get hot water.
I realize this orientation may be standard for lever handles. Our kitchen faucet is also clockwise for hot but at least it does not have H and C designations to confuse things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lake Rats Series 600 retrofit
Our 22-year-old outdoor shower had started to leak and was showing wear. I searched the Delta website and ID'd this renovation kit. Although it is supposed to allow you to go from the crystal "snowball" knob to the more modern lever, it worked on our current lever install. I could have just bought pieces parts, but why not buy the entire kit and replace all the springs and washers, etc? Very little cost differential. Should be good for another 22 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pacific55remodeler Easy and attractive update to old Delta "crystal ball" shower control
This Delta shower renovation kit is an easy way to update those old Delta shower controls to a more modern look. The internal function of the valve gets new valve seats and springs to go with the new control ball that fits the modern handle. This kit did the trick after several attempts to find retrofit handles at the local home improvement store which needed to be returned because they did not fit. It is well worth the investment.
