Does Delta Conversion Kit - 1500 To 1700 Series come in Brushed Nickel?

My home was built in 1995. The former owners installed Delta gold bathroom fixtures which are showing wear. We purchased the home two years ago and prefer the look of Brushed Nickel. We have been advised that Our Delta Shower fixtures are series 1500 and we need a Delta Conversion Kit 1500 To 1700 Series. Does the Delta Conversion Kit 1500 To 1700 Series come in Brushed nickel. If not, what do you recommend to covert old shower fixture to Brushed nickel.

Answer: 
Hi Rich, Thank you for your question. The RP29405 conversion kit is only available in the chrome finish. If the screws on your existing escutcheon/round trim plate are located at 1 and 7 o'clock and both are not at 5 and 7 o'clock at the bottom of the plate your can upgrade to your desired finish. You can order any of our 17 series pressure balanced trims in our brilliance stainless(SS) finish, a RP22734 bonnet nut, and a RP32104 cartridge to convert the faucet over to a 17 series.
Thanks,
Dave

1500 to 1700 conversion

I purchased a rp29405 to convert a 1500 to 1700 but it would appear that the screws for the face plate will still not line up? I have not taken it apart yet because it would appear that this will not really convert the 1500 to 1700?

Hi Jay, Thank you for your question. There were two versions of the 1500 series tub/shower faucet that were made. The first version has the escutcheon screw holes at 5 and 7 o-clock. This version will not be able to be converted to the 1700 series using the RP29405 renovation kit. The second version has the escutcheon screw holes at 1 and 7 o-clock, this version can be converted to the 1700 series.

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.

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

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.

1500 Series conversion

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.
