Frequently Asked Questions

Handles

Can I change my single-handle knob faucet to a lever?

Single-handle lavatory and tub/shower models can be converted from a clear or smoked knob handle to a lever handle. However, the "action" of a lever handle differs from a knob handle so you also need a different ball valve (RP20111) in your faucet for the lever handle to operate properly.

A single-handle faucet converted from knob handle to lever handle will operate slightly differently from an "original equipped" lever model.

Can I change the handles on my two-handle faucet?

Yes. Delta® two-handle kitchen, lavatory and tub/shower models can be fitted with a wide variety of handle styles to suit your tastes. Changing Delta faucet handles is simple and takes less than five minutes.

If you are changing from lever handles to knob or porcelain cross handles, you will need to re-orient the right (cold) handle stem stop so the stem stop faces inward.

If you are changing from knob or porcelain cross handles to lever handles, you will need to re-orient the right (cold) handle stem stop so the stem stop faces outward (both left and right handle stem stops should orient to the right).

Can I use Delta Select or Brizo handles on my regular Delta faucet?

No, the faucet handles fit the same stem assembly, but are not compatible with the rest of the trim.

Which handles will fit on my faucet?

Delta faucets are designed to accommodate the majority of Delta handles. In most cases handle styles are available in different sizes depending on the application of the faucet. For example, tub/shower handles tend to be larger than lavatory handles.

To locate a local source for Delta handles, visit your licensed professional plumbing contractor or Delta showroom. You can also e-mail us or call 1-800-345-DELTA (3358).

Why do my handles work backward on my two-handle faucet?

On a Delta two-handle kitchen or lavatory faucet, if the handles rotate in the wrong direction, simply rotate the right stem stop assembly 180 degrees. This will change the rotation of the faucet handle to the other direction.

HI PapaFi, Thank you for your question!
The H778 handle that comes with your T14478 has a hidden set screw. The lever portion that you grab onto of the handle un-threads counter clockwise and inside he base portion of the handle there is a small hole that has the hidden set screw. You will need a 3 3/2nd allen wrench to remove the set screw.

Answer: 
Hi M. Slemmer, Thank you for your question!
The part in your photo is the handle insert. There is no part number for that item due to the fact it comes manufactured inside of the handle. You will have to order the entire H240SS handle kit.

Hi Zene,

Thanks for your question!

Unfortunately, we do not make an escutcheon on 6" centers for this model. The three hole escutcheon only comes on 8" centers.

I hope this helps!

The tub faucet is on my soaking tub and the tub is enclosed in tile. To access the plumbing some of tiles would have to be removed and re-set. If possible I would just like to replace the spout and faucet handles. Is that possible? and are the parts available if it is possible?

Answer: 
Hi Sam, Thank you for your question!

If your current tub spout has a set screw on the back side of the spout, then any of our trim kits that start with a T27 will interchange for you. Some examples are T2710 and BT2796. If your current tub spout does not have a set screw on the back side of the spout, then you would need to install a R2707 rough in valve below your tub decking to be able to use the new trim kits.

Answer: 
Hi Amateur faucet fixer, Thank you for your question!
The lever portion that you grab onto of the handle un-threads and inside the base portion there is a small hole that has the hidden set screw and lastly you have a ring handle which is a cylinder handle where you have to place your hand very flat over the very front portion of the handle and twist it like a jar and once that top cap portion is off there is a set screw. The set screw in all the levers should take a 3 32nd" allen wrench.
