Delta Renovation Kit - 600 Series Tub and Shower 4 5 1 1
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

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.
Thanks,
Dave

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.

crystal ball set screw

I have a fifteen year old Delta shower body with push button diverter / its a bath tub installation. The crystal ball has broken. I am seeking a new crystal ball handle. I ordered two replacement knobs for the shower body, each supplier sent me a crystal ball with a straight set screw. The ball i seek to replace had a grey nylon insert which seated into the crystal ball. The set screw slid thru the ball ( and nylon) into the valve. The handles i ordered were different model balls and contained no nylon insert. Also the orientation of the handle wasn't quite the same as what i seek to replace. Can anyone tell me where i can get this old handle, screw and nylon?

Hi Larry, Thank you for your question. If you must lift up on your knob to turn the faucet on, you will have a 600 series faucet. The acrylic knob handle for this model is the RP17451. This knob is available to order on deltafaucet.com.

Is there a way to know if this is a shower valve assembly problem instead? My 600 series is the plastic knob type that pulls up and is about 20 years old.

Answer: 
Hi Phil, Thank you for your question. The RP54870SS is a renovation kit for the 600 series tub/shower faucets that replaces the internal and external parts for the tub/shower control. This kit should stop a showerhead leak. Normally switching out the RP4993 seats and springs and cleaning the ball assembly will stop most leaks in a 600 series without the need for the renovation kit unless you want to update the look of your faucet trim.

Dave

Use this kit to upgrade Delta 1600?

Can this reno kit be used on a Delta 1600 faucet that uses what appears to be an RP1991 cartridge? Can you replace the cartridge with the ball? If not what valve(s) are compatible w/ this reno kit, as there does not appear to be a trim upgrade in antique bronze for the 1600 faucet.

Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. Currently there is not a renovation kit available for the 1600 series faucets, the 600 kit will not work. The trim sleeve and escutcheon are still available for the 1600, but only in the chrome finish.

Yes or no: 1. can this be done without access from behind wall? 2. without removing tiles?

I need to replace a 600 series with push button diverter with new faucet and I know I need the plug for the hole where diverter was and I need a new tub spout with diverter.

I think I'm clear that replacing faucet and adding plug can be done without access from behind and no tile removal, but I'm not clear that new tub spout with diverter can be installed without access from behind and without tile removal. please clarify.

Answer: 
Hi Junkmail,
Thank you for your question. If you are planning on installing RP54870 you should be able to do this without access from behind the wall or removing your tiles. Everything installs on the wall or through the front of the unit. You are correct that you will need to change to a spout with diverter.Installation of the tub spout may vary depending on how it was originally installed but you still can accomplish this from outside the wall. The part number of the plug for the push button diverter is RP2865.

Dave

is this a Delta 600 series

I just want to replace the escutcheon, screws and knob. I'm not sure that I have a 600 series and whether it is the "deep" model. It certainly looks deep to me. I'm attaching photos.

Thanks

The tub spout I have screws on to a male coupling. Are there any delta tub spouts that will go with the 600 series renovation kit in the bronze color? The piping sticks out about 1.5 inches from the wall.
