Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Faucet Very nice faucet, elegant and high flow. We love it. Only negative was a missing glide ring, which I have emailed customer service about.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor collection. The Porter collection comes with towel racks and hooks, hand towel rings and toilet paper holders, shower faucets and sink faucets, all in brushed nickel which looks great! But you make the Delta Porter roman tub faucet available in only oil rubbed bronze. You were winning the race by a mile, then you quit 3 steps from the Finnish line. Great products, not so smart product line. Thanks for ruining my bathroom collection!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked the method used to tighten the faucet to the tub. The tub design gave little room to get a conventional wrench on the underside of the tub. Delta's system was set up so you could tighten from above. This helped a great deal.

Is the Porter model available with a hand shower?

Asked by: MLB
Hi MLB, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately the Porter is not available with the handshower. We do not have a Roman tub with handshower faucet in the oil rubbed bronze finish. The venetian bronze finish has 10 different series of the roman tub with hand shower option that are available. Thanks, Dave

What is the difference between the venetian bronze & oil rubbed bronze finish?

Asked by: MLB
Hi MLB, Thank you for your question. The oil rubbed bronze (OB) finish has more of the darker brown finish that covers the bronze on it than the venetian bronze (RB) does. This gives the oil rubbed bronze almost a dark brown look to it. The venetian bronze shows more of a contrast. Thanks, Dave

Changing aerator

Do I need an aerator wrench to get the aerator out of this faucet? If so which model aerator wrench should I use?
Asked by: George
Dear George, Thank you for your question. The blue plastic wrench that comes with the faucet RP52593, would be needed to remove the stream straightener from the Delta 37984-OB Porter Roman Tub spout. https://media.deltafaucet.com/PartsDiagram/37984_Rev_A__68273%20Rev%20A.pdf Best regards, Tanya

Will this fit Victorian series rough

Hi, I am doing a retrofit and wanted to know if the Porter Series would fit the Victorian series rough for roman tubs and shower valves. Thanks
Asked by: Chad
Hi Chad, Thank you for your question. Although this model will include the rough-in valve, it will work with the existing rough-in valve as long as the original spout was held on by a set screw on the back. The Victorian series does have this set screw, so it would work. Thanks, Jon
