Delta Renovation Kit - 600 Series Tub and Shower 4.5 5 2 2
100 Times better than Shiny Brass! So much more up to date, makes my reno look great! September 6, 2014
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. July 25, 2012

600 series bath/shower diverter broken

The diverter on my 600 series is broken. It is in the pulled out position, but the water is coming from the shower head and there is a small stream coming from around the diverter when the water is turned on. Under normal function the pulled out position should allow water to come from the bath faucet.
What do I need to fix this, and can I use this shower without water damage (could there be leaking behind the fixture into the wall) until I can make the repair?
I have a second bath faucet with the opposite issue, broken diverter pushed in, but water coming from bath faucet. I cannot pull it out.

Answer: 
Hi Deb, Thank you for your question. Replacing the RP5649 push button diverter assembly on both faucets should solve the issue. The RP5649 is available in chrome, (BN) brushed nickel, (PB) brilliance polished brass, and (RB) venetian bronze finishes.
You may want to remove the large round escutcheon plate on the unit that is spraying the water to make sure it is not leaking into the wall during use.
Thanks,
Dave

I also will need the shower arm, drain, flanges, tub overflow disk, etc. Do I buy all those separately and does delta have them...or are they generic? Would those also be available at a store like Home Depot or Lowes?

Answer: 
Hi Babs,

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP54870 is the renovation kit for the 600 series faucets. It is everything that you will need at the valve and does not include the tub spout, shower arm, shower flange, or tub drain. You can pair them with any of our showerheads and tub spouts or tub drains by matching the Chrome finish. Check with your local retailer or wholesaler for a wide variety of choices.

Thanks.

What bronze faucet for 4" threaded copper pipe?

I believe we have an old delta 6000 shower/tub combo. We ordered the 34357 but the threaded copper pipe sticks out 4". Can we make this work or do I need another faucet?

Answer: 
Hi Steve, Thank you for your question. If you have a 1/2" copper pipe with a male threaded adapter sweated onto the pipe you can cut the adapter off of the copper pipe, sweat on the RP12307 tub spout adapter that comes with the RP34357 tub spout according to the instructions and install the tub spout. If you have a 4" long threaded pipe you will have to switch the pipe nipple out to a shorter length that will extend beyond the finished wall from 5/8" to 1-5/8" and screw on the RP12307 tub spout adapter and then the tub spout itself.

Answer: 
Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. You can try tightening the adjusting ring that is part of the cap under the handle to stop the leak. If this does not help, you will want to replace the cam assembly. The part number for the cam assembly is RP61 if your faucet has a lever style handle, and RP188 if you have the acrylic knob handle. The RP54870 renovation kit would supply all new internal parts.
Thanks,
Dave

We built our house in 1987...using Delta shower/tub faucets. They are antique gold with a shower head, tub spout, and two crystal ball twist hot/cold handles. I am updating...but do not want to change custom tile. Is it possible to change out with newer Oil Rubbed Bronze fixtures using same plumbing infrastructure? Everything still works well. It looks like everything utilizes one handle now...but our handles are spread too far apart (8 inches) to accommodate a 4 inch escutcheon

Hi JMc,

Thank you for your question. Based on your description, it sounds like you have a two handle tub shower configuration. We do offer a renovation plate to cover up the holes and convert your faucet to a single handle faucet when you change the valve. It is Delta Faucet model # RP29827RB. You will need to go into the wall to replace the valve but you not need to replace tiles.

Thanks.

What do I need to change to an oil brushed bronze shower kit?

We have a 20 year old delta shower faucet with a push button diverter on the plate. To turn on the water, you have to lift up on the knob and then turn it for hot or cold. We want to replace it with an oil brushed bronze color, but I cannot find any replacements with a diverter on the plate. Can I change this out or not? If I can, what will I need? How difficult will it be because we don't have access behind the wall?

Answer: 
Hi James, Thank you for your question. To update your 600 series faucet to a rubbed bronze finish you can order the RP54870RB renovation kit. You will need to order the plug for the push button diverter RP2865 to plug off the push button diverter and a diverter tub spout in the RB venetian bronze finish. A shower head, shower arm , and shower flange in venetian bronze should complete the project.

Coordinating parts?

I plan on purchasing the stainless version to replace an old 600 series trim. What tub spout and tub drain/overflow switch coordinate with this?
Also, It currently has a push button diverter that leaks a bit and part of the water flow is still coming out of the tub spout when the shower is turned on. Will plugging the existing push button diverter and using this kit with a new spout diverter fix these issues? The current set is at least 20 years old if not older. Thank you!

Hi Jen, Thank you for your question. The plug for the push button diverter is the RP2865. The overflow plate is RP6403SS, screws RP6404SS, and the drain strainer is RP7430SS. We have several styles of tub spouts like the model RP17453SS, or the RP19820SS that will match the new trim.

RP54870PB Polished Brass 600 series trim kit still being sold?

Is the above part still being sold? There was a previous question about purchasing this trim kit with a polished brass finish and the answer said to purchase the above part number. Unfortunately, you do not list this as an available finish with the RP54870 part. I could buy just a polished brass escutcheon, but would still need the sleeve and ball cam in polished brass. I would want a handle too, but would get by with using a new crystal ball.

Hi Debbie, Thank you for your question. The RP54870PB is no longer available. The 600 Renovation kit is offered in chrome. venetian bronze, and brilliance stainless finishes.
You can still order the escutcheon RP5883PB, trim sleeve RP5893PB, cap RP50PB, and lever handle RP17443PB as individual items. If you are switching from the acrylic knob handle to a lever style you will also need the RP20111 conversion ball.
