Trying to Convert 1500 to 1700 Series

I have 1997 1500 series Brass (See Photo) with Push Button Diverter and temp control. Want to convert to Oil Rubbed Bronze or Venetian Bronze. Can't seem to find a reno kit with Push Button diverter and temp control. I could try to paint my Escutcheon but not sure it will work with the newer trim parts. Is there a way I can bypass the diverter (take it off) and go with the more traditional tub spout with pull up diverter? Appreciate your feedback on best options available. Vr

Answer: 
Hi Don,

Thank you for your question! The diverter can be capped using the RP2865 plug. The RP32104 cartridge will then allow you to use any current T17 (not T17T) series trim kit!

We have recently purchased a vacation home and in process of remodeling. The two bathrooms have gold fixtures and we would like to replace with satin nickel finish. Need assistance in identifying the correct conversion kit for each. I have attached several pictures to assist with identifying the correct replacement. Pardon the condition, we took these upon purchase and they need a good cleaning. Please advise and thank you for your help.

Answer: 
Hi Jack, Thank you for your question. The pictured tub/shower faucet is a 1300/1400 series faucet. You can use our current T13/T14 series trims with your existing rough in valve. The new trims will ship with a new cartridge that will not fit the existing rough. You will have to continue to use the existing cartridge or replace it with a new RP19804.
The roman tub faucet is a Victorian collection model 2755. You can use any of the current roman tub trims with your existing rough in valve.
Thanks,
Dave

Replace cartridge

I have a 1500 series shower and I need to replace the cartridge as it is leaking. I found the original manual (miraculously) and the part number for the cartridge is RP16207, which I can't find on the website. I see from other questions here that RP 32104 is referenced for the same model. Can I order that cartridge to use in lieu of the 16207?

Thank you.

Delta Monitor shower faucet

hello,
We have an older model Delta Monitor shower faucet that has been leaking (see attached picture... I don't know the exact model number), and which we would like to upgrade to a newer model such as Model # T17230. Is this possible, and if yes what replacement parts would I need to order?
Thanks!

Answer: 
Hi Curts, Thank you for your question. Pictured parts are from a 1500 series faucet. If the screw holes on your round escutcheon plate are at 1 and 7 o-clock you can upgrade to the T17230. You will also need to order a RP32104 cartridge and RP22734 bonnet nut to complete the renovation. If the screw holes are at 5 and 7 o-clock, the entire faucet including the rough in valve would have to be changed.
Thanks,
Dave

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Determined, Thank you for your question. The pictured faucet is a 1500 series faucet. To remove the cartridge you will need to unscrew the brass bonnet nut. If mineral build up is making removing the nut difficult we recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution and wrapping the towel around the nut to help break up the mineral build up. Allow to soak overnight if possible.
Not all 1500 series faucets can use the conversion kit. If the screw holes on your existing round escutcheon plate are diagonally across from one another at 1 and 7 o-clock the faucet trim can be switched out using the existing rough in valve body.
To upgrade the faucet and change to a different finish you will need to order the Monitor 17 series trim of your choice, a RP32104 cartridge, and a RP22734 bonnet nut.
If the screw holes on your current faucet are at 5 and 7 o-clock and in a horizontal line you will have to replace the entire faucet including the rough in valve.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Martyb, Thank you for your question. You can order any of our current Monitor 17 series trims to update your polished brass 1700 series faucet. Our (SS) brilliance stainless finish is comparable to other brands brushed nickel finishes. The new trims will fit your existing rough in valve, but the cartridge that ships with the trim will not. You will have to continue to use your existing cartridge or order a new RP32104.
Thanks,
Dave

I have 1500 rough-in valve. Will this conversion kit work.

I am not wanting to change the rough-in valve which appears to be okay. I have the cartridge but nothing else remains, It was accidentally thrown out during remodeling. Should this 1500 to 1700 should fit on the existing rough-in valve. The tub spout connection still remains. Will any spout work.

With the added backerboard and tile to the shower wall, will there still be enough room for the conversion kit and new cartridge.

Answer: 
Hi Carul, Thank you for your question. Based on the photograph of the back of the valve body it appears the the escutcheon screws on the face plate would be attached at 5 and 7 o-clock across the bottom of the escutcheon. If this is the case there is no conversion kit for your faucet. We recommend changing out the entire faucet and installing a new R10000 multichoice universal rough that will work with all of our trims.
Thanks,
Dave

O'clock , can you provide me with the kit numbers to completely retrofit, and is there also a number for a matching spout with bottom pull down diverter, and a number for the same in the vent cover plate..
A complete package would be a bonus...

Are the various versions of RP32104 rebuildable?

It seems to me that these cartridges should be easy to rebuild. New quad seals and 2 O rings should do the trick. Disassembly is easy.
