Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Series 600 retrofit Our 22-year-old outdoor shower had started to leak and was showing wear. I searched the Delta website and ID'd this renovation kit. Although it is supposed to allow you to go from the crystal "snowball" knob to the more modern lever, it worked on our current lever install. I could have just bought pieces parts, but why not buy the entire kit and replace all the springs and washers, etc? Very little cost differential. Should be good for another 22 years! August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and attractive update to old Delta "crystal ball" shower control This Delta shower renovation kit is an easy way to update those old Delta shower controls to a more modern look. The internal function of the valve gets new valve seats and springs to go with the new control ball that fits the modern handle. This kit did the trick after several attempts to find retrofit handles at the local home improvement store which needed to be returned because they did not fit. It is well worth the investment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product The product is Delta which says it all. Easy to put on good quality materials and the price like always with this company was the best :-) February 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy Install Easy to install, great look, beats the heck out of the old plastic ball March 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 100 Times better than Shiny Brass! So much more up to date, makes my reno look great! September 6, 2014

I do not know what series Delta shower I have. I want to change my chrome fixture to ss.

Will the Delta Renovation Kit 600 Series fit on my existing shower. I know I need to purchase the plug. Is it as simple as buying a tub spout with a pull up knob.

Hello John, Thank you for your question!
Your unit is our Delta 600 series tub/shower. The RP54870 renovation kit will work. You will need the RP2865 diverter plug to plug off the opening for your push button diverter and purchase either a pull up or pull down diverter tub spout.

Looks same as my 1600 series anti scald model. Can I replace with this unit?

I would like to update and change the color of my two showers from gold to chrome and gold to bronze.

This Delta Renovation Kit-600 Series Tub & Shower, including the escutcheon and screw hole locations look exactly like what I currently have.

The current fixtures, have the old crystal ball handle, however, it has what looks like the 1600 series anti scald cartridge instead of the ball.

Will this replacement kit work?

Hi John B, Thank you for your question!
The RP54870 600 series renovation kit will not work with the 1600 series unit. The only kit we have for the 1600 series is the RP77740 kit which is available in chrome only. To use any other trim you would need to replace the valve body behind your wall.

Best regards.

Renovation Kit

Hi,

I have a picture of my tub and shower handles that were original with our home (1995). Will this renovation kit work to replace these? I see that I will need a plug for the diverter opening in the tub faucet. What other parts do I need?

Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Lisa,

Thank you for your question! You have a 1500 series tub/shower unit. Unfortunately, we do not have a trim kit for 1500 series units with screw holes at 5 and 7 o'clock. However, we do have some replacement parts available. I have attached the parts diagram.

Best regards,
Jon

How to identify?

I don't know what series my shower controls are. Pretty much necessary information from what I'm reading. It has a round ball handle going left for hot and right for cold. Up for volume. I want to change handles to a newer design. I am enclosing a photo of one of them. You might see thread material at the top of the control. I also want to get new escutcheons

Thanks

Answer: 
Hi Jim, Thank you for your question!
I have determined you have our 600 series tub/shower. It is a discontinued unit and none of the current trims we offer will fit onto the existing valve body. However, we do manufacture a renovation kit part number RP54870. The kit comes with the escutcheon(face plate), screws, sleeve, dome shaped cap assembly, lever handle and internal parts. You will have to order your choice of shower head, shower arm, shower flange and tub spout separate. The kit is available in Chrome, Venetian bronze and Stainless Steel finish. The kit can be viewed on our website www.deltafaucet.com. I hope this information is helpful.

Hi Pete,

Thank you for your question! Products marked Stainless Steel or Brilliance Stainless will have the same finish. This should also closely match brushed nickel finishes.

I currently have a Delta shower valve that was installed in my home in 1989. It is the ball valve type.

Will the Delta renovation kit 600 series Model # RP54870SS fit the older model Delta (1989 installed) with the ball valve.

Answer: 
Hi Paul,

Thank you for your question! This kit will work with any 600 series shower. All shower units with a ball assembly are part of the 600 series.

However, please note that if you have a push-button diverter, you will need to cap off the diverter hole in the valve and use a diverter tub spout instead.

Jon
