Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Look I really enjoy our new DELTA faucet. It is just the right touch for our new bathroom. Bronze gives just the right color with a white tile bath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality I bought this product since I have always had high performance with Delta products and replacement parts. Unfortunately, with this model, it spots very easily since we have hard well water. Also, I expected more water pressure with a larger shower head. Not so. Apparently, with clean water consumption regulations, it is only a 2.0 psi and not that great. more like a gentle rain shower. like the heavy quality and basic operation of hot and cold. has a hot water adjustment, so you can set it higher than normal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent product, but they don't make 'em like they used to. When I purchased my house twenty years ago, it had Delta faucets throughout. It's time to remodel, so we decided to stick with Delta. Delta is still a better than average brand, but the newer designed faucets are nowhere near the quality of the older ones. This is just a sign of the times. The actual problem I am having is that I replaced the old shower valve with the new one that came with this faucet. The valve assembly sticks out almost a full inch further than the old one. This makes the center trim sleeve an inch too short. I hope delta has an answer to this other than tear the wall apart and recess/replumb the valve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very attractive faucet set Looks good, easy to install. Build quality is better than other brands I looked at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install. Easy to install. Sweat your copper fittings in small sections and then thread them onto the faucet section. Make final sweat joints after threaded to keep heat low. The directions are easy to understand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No pressure and quite loud Sadly now that the unit is installed I'm less than satisfied with the pressure output of the unit. The pressure is far less than the 80's generation tap set I replaced. Also the water creates much more noise than the old unit. With the unit set for max pressure there's not enough heat and if turning the control slightly left of 90* you get plenty of heat but no pressure. If Delta has a retrofit control unit to remove the heat protection function I trust this would a be the unit I was hoping to get.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very low water pressure You do not want this unit if yall like water pressure; Nicely designed unit but with low pressure, says its 2.0 GPM but unable to git that much in a minute. Contacted delta to see if they offer a diferent cartidge fer this model to git more pressure from shower head. The water pressure is so low comin out that the water looks like like a sprinkler you use in your garden. It does have three setings but the main setin se use is the one with all holes shootin out. But it is a very well designed unit and great apperance.

what about the tub drain? do you have one that matches

Asked by: carl
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 144984-OB has a couple of bath waste assemblies that are similar in color but not exactly the same color. There is Delta Faucet model # RP691RB which is a trip lever. There is also Delta Faucet model # RP693RB which is a toe operated drain. This finish is a Venetian Bronze and it will compliment the Oil Rubbed Bronze but it is not exactly the same.

Is there an adjustment for water pressure??? I have very little.

Asked by: STEVEO5878
Hello SteveO5878, Thank you for your question. The Delta Porter Tub and Shower 144984-OB model has one constant volume and the handle rotates to control the temperature. There is also a rotational limit stop on the cartridge that can be adjusted for hotter or colder temperature. You may want to check and flush the faucet of any debris or particles. Best regards, Tanya

When I turn my water off the water contines to run. Ive replaced the springs and seats. However the tubes with the o-rings (rp14414) remained in the mount. Is the unit broken or can I pull it out?

Asked by: Jacks
Hi, Jacks! Thank you for your question. There are two parts to the valve cartridge assembly, the top and bottom. If the bottom part of the cartridge is still in the valve body, please remove by taking two flat head screw drivers or butter knives and putting them into each side of the cartridge, between the inside of the valve, and work the cartridge out. Once the bottom of the cartridge is out, connect the two parts of the cartridge together. To reinstall this back into the valve, push the cartridge straight in. Do not twist the cartridge or the cartridge will separate again. If you should need anymore assistance, please contact us back. Best Regards, Rosanna

I have a delta fixture that says "Monitor" onthe bottom of the ring.It was installed in 1994.Will the 144984ob that I purchased hook up to it

Will I be able to mount this unit into the existing body
Asked by: Gene
Hi Gene, Thank you for your question. In 1994 we had several different series of faucets that would have "Monitor" on the escutcheon. If your faucet has a single control that only controls the temperature, not the volume of the water and turns counter-clockwise to turn on and clockwise to turn off you can use the model 144984-OB trim with your existing rough in valve. The new faucet will come with a new cartridge. The new cartridge will not fit your existing rough in valve. You will have to continue to use your existing cartridge or order a new RP19804. If your current faucet offers a single handle that controls water volume, and a smaller knob at the end of the handle that controls water temperature you will have to replace the rough in valve to be able to use the 144984-OB. Thanks, Dave

In the specs, it say says its Universal. Would the spout attach to a stub that is 1 in long?

Asked by: April
Thank you for your question, April! Unfortunately, we do not make 1" tub spout connections. All of our tub spouts are 1/2". I do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Best regards, Tanya

What about a matching overflow cover and tub drain

Asked by: Charles
Hi, Charles! Thank you for your question. At this time, we do not manufacture a tub drain and overflow kit that matches the Delta Monitor 144984-OB Tub and Shower Unit in the Oil Rubbed Bronze. The closest would be our RP693RB in the Venetian Bronze finish. We recommend to check with your local hardware or plumbing supply store for a matching unit. Best Regards, Rosanna

Can you use a tub/shower faucet on just a tub with no shower

Asked by: vickiem
Thank you for your question! Delta Faucet model #144984-OB can be adjusted to run as a tub only model. The valve body (Delta part #R10000-UNBX) will need to be plugged at the shower outlet with part #RP20032 or RP76.
