Answer: 
Hi Margie, Thank you for your question. The RP29405 conversion kit is only available in chrome. You can convert your 1500 series to other finishes by ordering a T17 series trim, a RP32104 cartridge, and a RP22734 bonnet nut. The T17 series trims offer you a wide variety of styles and finishes.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Vic, Thank you for your question. Once the button, screw, and nut are removed from the handle assembly there is nothing mechanical holding the volume control handle in place. Often mineral build up can make parts difficult to remove. We recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water and wrapping the towel around the volume control handle. Let the solution soak in, the longer the better, to help break up the mineral deposits. This should make the handle easier to remove. I have included a parts breakdown of the handle assembly below.
Thanks,
Dave

Monitor 1500 Escutcheon holes 5 & 7 o'clock - will RP32104 or RP29405 parts work

I will need to replace my cartridge eventually. Not leaking, i am losing water temperature.

Appears to be RP16207 replaced by RP32104. I attempted to replace this before but the overall length of the RP32104 with adapters seemed longer than the RP16207 that came out. I lost water temperature in the RP32014 after less than two years. Also volume and temperature turning effort seemed very high. Can the RP32014 be used with my valve?

Can i purchase the RP29405, re-use my existing face plate and solve the fitting and turning effort problems?

BTW i soaked my RP16207 in vinegar to got my temperature back. But the cartridge is 20 years old and won't last forever. I need to plan my next step.

Thank you

Delta monitor valve

I think I have a 1500 monitor valve. The screws are at 5 and 7 o'clock and the house was built in 1993.

I want to change the chrome finish to a nickel one. What is the easiest and cheapest way to do this. Does delta make a trim kit in nickel for this or what parts are needed to upgrade it

Thanks

William

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model 1500 series with the screw holes at 5 and 7 cannot be replaced without replacing the valve too. Our current trim will not fit your valve. We recommend purchasing our Multi-choice valve which is model R10000-UNBX. This valve can be used with any 1300/1400 or 1700 series trims and can easily be upgraded to different trims without going behind the wall.

Hello,

I would like to convert my current 1500 series (handle, etc) to something with brushed nickel. Are there any available kits? I can only find a chrome conversion kit thus far.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. If your screw holes on your 1500 faucet are at 2 and 7 on a clock, then you can use any 1700 series faucet but you will need a different cartridge than the one that comes in the trim package. You will need Delta Faucet model # RP32104 as a replacement cartridge.

If your screw holes are at the 5 and 7 position, then there is no replacement.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. We do not manufacture replacement trim for your 1500 series faucet with the screw holes at 5 & 7.

You will need to replace the valve to get a different faucet. We recommend the R10000-UNBX universal multi-choice valve to use any 1300/1400 or 1700 series trim.

Does the RP22734 unplated bonnet just spin off?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP22734 bonnet should just unscrew. If it has been on there a long time, it may have mineral deposits built up preventing it from coming off. We recommend using a towel soaked in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water wrapped around the bonnet nut overnight. This will loosen the mineral deposits. You may also try a channel strap around the nut.

The finish on our 1500 series brass shower fixtures (1997 install) has been deteriorating for quite a while. We would switch to stainless or brushed nickel if it weren't for the shower surround and Jacuzzi hardware all in brass finishes too.

Does 1700 replacement parts come in stainless steel?

Miles
Lewisville, TX, USA
I'm converting my 1700 Series shower fixture from polished brass to stainless steel or brushed nickel. Can I get the flange, collar, handle, temp handle, and screws in stainless steel or brushed nickel?

If those are not available in 1700, is there any other series that will attach to the same valve assembly and work the same way?
