We bought an updated bath shower faucet but cannot use the current cartridge that comes with the newer model. is there a conversion kit available?
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have a conversion kit available. If you have a pre-2006 1700 series, only a 17 series trim work with the existing valve. Please also be sure to use the original cartridge (RP32104) rather than the one that comes with the kit.
Models manufactured in Sept. 2006 or later will have a MultiChoice valve, which will allow you to change the series of trim. MultiChoice series numbers are 13, 14, 17, or 17T. Units made prior to this date (1300/1400, 1700 series) can be upgraded, but only with a trim of the corresponding series.
