Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color & style. So many times the style of oil-rubbed bronze is very old fashioned or more European. This goes very well with my updated bathroom. And it's Delta! Already registered online!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works wonderfully My son installed this in a new shower that he had built and it works beautifully. I am very happy with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the Delta it replaced I tried to have the Delta tub and Shower unit that was installed about 9 years ago fixed. I called and had parts sent. The certified plumber that was fixing it said he could not use the parts.. some were wrong and part of the unit he could not get apart with out breaking. Since we were with out a shower (only one in the house) I went to Menards to find a replacement Delta unit for him to install. ( I am sure I could have called the company again and get the whole unit but did not have the time to wait 2 weeks for delivery) The plumber installed the new unit and it works just fine. The handle seems like it will not last over time. It is very sensitive to hot and cold with very little movement. I wish I had my old unit back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, not great, but not bad. The finish is definitely only surface deep, be very careful with tools when tightening as you can easily mar the finish. The restricter that comes in the shower head, really restricts the flow. I took out the screen, then drilled a hole in the plastic insert 3/16 wide. That was a bit too much so I put the screen back in and that made the shower flow strong but not too much. But out of the box, too weak a flow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delta faucets Very easy to repair or replace. Removed tub/shower cultured marble end. Replaced 1972 shower faucet with Delta Monitor. Replaced galvanized pipe. Reinstalled cultured marble end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built Purchased roughly a month ago and installed it within a few days. The temperature control to protect against burning hot water is a great design feature, especially with young children. And the new valve design makes it interchangeable to change the look with out having to redo plumbing.

I'm installing a monitor 14 series tub and shower kit (Porter; 144984-OB-A). The receiving end of the tub faucet is threaded and I have 1/2 copper pipe extending from wall. Do I need an adaptor to go from 1/2 copper to threaded Iron? How do I install?

Asked by: btexpress
Thank you for your question, btexpress! The RP47841OB tub spout that comes in the model 144984-OB-A is made to screw onto a 1/2" fitting in the nose of the spout. Best regards, Edward

Can I buy this kit without the valve? Trims only? 

Asked by: Kelly O
Thank you for your question, Kelly O! The Delta Porter series only offers the trim and the rough in valve together. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Best regards, Edward

How do i increase water temperature or mixture? Basically my hot water is not as hot as i would like it.

Asked by: Buster
Hi, Buster! Thank you for your question. There is a rotational limit stop on the valve cartridge assembly that can be adjusted to get hotter water. Here is a link to a how-to video on how to adjust the rotational limit stop: https://www.deltafaucet.com/video-gallery/video-page-1?videoId=n2_uZ7wgV1I Best Regards, Rosanna

What types of cleaners can you use on the oil rubbed bronze faucets?

I just had new Delta Porter 14494-OB sink faucests plus tub and shower faucets installed in my bathroom and need to know what cleaner can be used to clean them, but still get my sinks and tub clean as well? Tonita Miller North Carolina
Asked by: Delta Porter Bath Faucets
Hello Tonita, Thank you for your question! Here are our cleaning and care instructions: Always blot dry any water from the faucet surface. Allowing water to evaporate on the surface can lead to build up of mineral deposits. Cleaning with a damp non-abrasive sponge and buffing it dry with a clean soft cloth should help keep your product looking beautiful. To remove water spots, use warm water and a soft, damp cloth. Hard water stains may be removed using a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Make certain that you rinse the surface thoroughly with water afterward. If additional cleaning is required, all of our finishes may be cleaned with the following household cleaners: Formula 409® Antibacterial All Purpose Cleaner, Fantastik® All Purpose Cleaner, or Windex® Original Glass Cleaner, when used according to the manufacturers' instructions for use. Avoid using the following which can damage your finish: Avoid industrial cleaners and abrasive cleaners, such as those used for toilet bowls, green Scotch-Brite heavy duty scrub sponges, Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner and Lysol Basin Tub, Soft Scrub, and Tile Cleaner. Avoid products that state on the label that they remove tarnish and rust and those containing hydrofluoric, hydrochloric and/or phosphoric acids and caustic agents. Avoid harsh abrasives or polishes. Avoid bleach-based cleaners. Best regards, Tanya

Is there a longer trim sleeve available?

I need a longer trim sleeve for this install. Ours does not go all the way to the wall.
Asked by: sabryna
Hi sabryna, Thank you for your question. We recommend that the back of the valve be 2 3/4" from the finished wall for the included 2 1/6" sleeve. If the valve is further forward, a longer sleeve may be needed. Unfortunately, we do not have a longer sleeve in the Oil Rubbed Bronze finish. However, we do have a longer sleeve in the lighter Venetian Bronze, part number RP39407RB (3") and RP22735RB (3 1/2"). https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP39407RB https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP22735RB Best regards, Jon

Gap between spout and tile.

I installed the monitor 14 series tub spout in brushed nickel and there is a 5/16" gap between the spout and the tile. Is there a plate that can be installed to cover this gap?
Asked by: Sidc2000
Hi Sidc2000, I'm sorry for any inconvenience. Please make sure that the threaded pipe for the tub spout extends 3 7/8 – 4” from the finished wall. Unfortunately, we do not have a plate to cover the gap. Best regards, Jon
