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 5 out of 5 by from Easy installation Removed an old Delta faucet and replaced with this one in less than an hour. Love the design and quality.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our Master Bath Remodel Very nice design, good quality. Water volume very good.

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

I see that the 37984-08 does not come with the clean out and drain. Are they available in that style?

Asked by: Darla
Hi Darla, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately we do not offer a bath waste assembly in the oil rubbed bronze finish to match the model 37984-OB roman tub faucet. We offer trip lever and toe touch style drain assemblies in our (RB) venetian bronze finish as RP691RB, and RP693RB. They have a 13-1/2" max vertical adjustment. Thanks, Dave

Will Porter Roman Tub kit fit existing plumbing

We currently have a Delta classic roman tub kit on our Jacuzzi tub. The valves currently in there are stem type and the clear round handles attach through a screw in the top. Will this roman tub kit work with the existing plumbing?
Asked by: T
Hi T, Thank you for your question! We thank you for your interest in Delta products! If your current tub spout has a set screw on the back side of the spout, then any of our trim kits that start with a T27 or the 37984 will interchange for you. If your current tub spout does not have a set screw on the back side of the spout, then you would need to install a R2707 rough in valve below your tub decking to be able to use the new trim kits. Best regards, Brandis

Does this work with a rough in that looks like R2707 with a set screw in the back? Thank you

Asked by: Jesse
Hi Jesse, Thank you for your question. The trim should work with an existing Delta valve if the spout was attached by a set screw in the back. Best regards, Jon

Can this model be retrofitted to a rough in kit where the spout has a set screw AND we have a hand shower? Maybe with special order part for the diverter? Need it all to be oil rubbed bronze

Asked by: TimB
Hello TimB, Thank you for your question. The Porter Roman Tub 37984-OB comes with a R2707 rough-in valve. Unfortunately the Porter is not available with the hand shower. We do not have a Roman tub with hand shower 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. Best regards, Tanya

I have two matching faucets on a double vanity, however they are in the nickle finish. Is this available in that finish?

If not, are there any plans to offer this in that finish. Do you offer any other Roman Tub faucet that will fit the same 8" - 16" installation that would look good with the ones I have.
Asked by: Kenton
Hi Kenton, Thank you for your question. The model 37984 is currently only offered in the oil rubbed bronze finish. The Windemere series roman tub faucet BT2796-SS has a similar style to the Porter. Thanks, Dave

What is the inside diameter of the spout that the water slides onton

Bath tub- new facquet,Porter Roman Tub trim with Rough I need the spout to fit a 7/8
Asked by: Bud

I have an compatibility question.

I have an existing Delta faucet set on my Roman Tub installed in 2000. It appears to be the same rough-in as the current rough-in for the Porter. How can I be sure it will be compatible?
Asked by: Greg
Hi Greg, Thank you for your question. If the set screw in your roman tub spout is in the back of the spout then you can retrofit with a current model. If the set screw is in the front of the spout or a spout with no set screw then these units would also have to have the rough ins changed as well. Thanks, Dave

Installation

I purchased this last week, hoping that I could use the existing rough in valves because they have been tiled over. However, I cannot get it to work. Are there any kits or anything that I can get to make these compatible? The existing is about 20 years old.
Asked by: Justin
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 37984-OB will fit our existing roman tub rough-in valves as long as there in not an anti-swivel pin used in the valve now. This pin is underneath the spout. If you do have one, then the only trim you can use without changing out the rough-in is the T2710.
