Does the two handle flexible mount rough in R2707 work with a Roman tub hand shower trim T4738 if we do not plan to use the hand shower?
Thank you for your inquiry! Yes, the Delta Lahara Roman Tub Trim kit T4738 can be used with the Roman Tub Rough-In Valve R2707 without attaching the hand shower. However, the lift rod in the top of the spout will not be connected to anything.

Im using the R2707 rough in valve on my roman tub. The original tube holes are 10 inch on center. How do I get the flex lines to fit
Thank you for your question, Bobby! The R2707 will work with installations ranging from 8"- 16" wide. Each valve has a flexible corrugated copper supply tube that can be gently bent to accommodate the existing holes. Please feel free to contact us directly if you have questions or need further assistance.
Best regards, Edward

If using braided supply lines....
....do I need to convert up to 3/4" or are 1/2" lines acceptable for proper water flow?

I won't be installing the spout in between the two handles (spout's in the corner of the tub, handles on the outside edge). Is there any reason I can't install the handles closer together than 8" as long as there's enough clearance for the levers?
Thank you for your question. We advise of the 8" minimum installation centers so that the supply lines have enough room under the deck.

I am attempting to replace a Moen tub trim with a new Delta (Model #T2753) but the valve cartridges aren't compatible. Can I replace the Moen cartridges with Delta? What parts do I need? Or do I just need to go with a Moen trim?
Thank you for your question, raheath. You would need a Delta rough-in valve such as the R2707 in order to install a Delta Roman Tub Trim.
Best regards, Jon

When can I solder the R2707 connections?
I need to install the R2707 from the side of the deck which makes soldering the connections after everything is installed next to impossible. Is it possible to solder all the connections (including 1/2" male adapters for braided supply lines) outside of the deck and then install the entire assembly following the finished deck instructions? Of course connecting the braided supply lines would be the last step.
Thank you for your question. The connections could be soldered before installing the valve into the tub, as long as the end valves are the correct distance apart, level, and oriented correctly. You would then remove the top washers, slide the entire assembly up through the deck, reattach the top washer, and tighten the jack screws.

cpvc plumbing coming from walls
I want to install a delta roman tub faucet and we have cpvc coming out of the walls, how do I do this with the copper rough in? I have a plumber but im supplying the materials and parts.
Hi Justin, Thank you for your question. You will want to ask your plumber his or her preference on making the transition between copper and cpvc. There are several different ways to make this connection requiring different parts.

Can R2707 rough-in valve set be installed over more than a 16" span?
We want to change our our Roman tub fixtures to the Delta Dryden set to match the rest of our bathroom fixtures. The R2707 rough-in valve set is spec'd for the Dryden fixtures; however, our current installation spans more than the 16" maximum called out in the R2707 installation instructions that I read online. Our tub set is installed with the supply valves on the front ledge of the tub, while the spout is located on the other side of the tub (see included photo).
Can this rough-in assembly still be used in our configuration? If not, what do you suggest?
Thank you for your assistance.
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # R2707 has a normal range of 8-16 inches. However, you are able to use it longer than 16 inches with the knowledge that you will need extra hosing and plumbing that is not provided by us.

Is the cartridge available for purchase as a separate part, to refurbish an old faucet? I am assuming I would need two, one for each side. Correct?
This is in reference to an R2707 Roman Tub Valve.
Thank you for your question. The Delta Roman Tub Rough-In R2707 valve body uses RP24096 stem unit assemblies for both hot and cold water handles. There are also seats and spring in the valve underneath the stem. Here is a link to this valve parts diagram:

Do i have to install seperate anti-scald?
Thank you for your question. If coding requires an anti scald guard for the Delta R2707 rough valve, we recommend the R2570-MIXLF which is sold separately. Here is a link to this unit:

Can R2707 be installed over R2700 without modifying the deck?
I'm replacing R2700 with R2707, but the holes in the deck were cut for the old kit (1-3/4" and 1-1/4"). Will R2707 fit?
Thank you for your question. Please refer to the Technical Specifications (link below). The holes for a standard installation should be 1 1/2" in diameter.

Our Delta Innovations Roman Tub faucet is deck mounted on a whirlpool tub. We want to re-use the faucet trim but refresh all the internal parts as we put in a new tub and deck. Will the Innovations faucet work with the R2707 and new stem parts, etc?
Hello Fran L,
Thank you for your question. 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 will interchange with the R2707 Roman Tub Rough-In Valve.

I am installing the R2707 kit in the deck for my new tub. Here's my question. The top of the deck is not tiled yet. Do I install the valve kit now and tighten/secure it to the unfinished (plywood w/backer board layer) or wait till tile is complete?
Thank you for your question, Bill! Please refer to the Installation Instructions linked below. There are two ways to install this valve.
A Standard Installation (see pages 3-4) would be used if the finished deck is 2 1/2" thick or less. For this type of installation, the valve is installed to the finished deck surface.
The Thick Tile Installation (pages 5-6) should be used for surfaces 2 1/2" thick excluding the plywood underlayment. For this type of installation, the valve should be mounted prior to the installation of the tile.
Best regards, Jon

Just to be sure, the Delta Innovations Roman Tub Trim has a Model # of 2730-CB, not T2730. It does have the set screw on the back side of the spout. Does the T just stand for TUB? Is T2730 and 2730 the same and will it work with the R2707 rough-in?
Thank you for your question, Fran L! Yes, the same R2707 valve is used with both models 2730-CB (trim and valve) and the T2730 (trim kit only). The "T" in front of the model number stands for Trim kit.

Can Delta roman tub faucets and spouts specified for a R2707 rough-in valve be used in an existing R2700 valve application?
I currently have what appears to be an R2700 roman tub rough-in valve and want to install a new Delta faucet. It seems all of the faucets I find require a R2707 valve. I have a perfectly good valve and don't want to change it out. If so, can the Porter oil rubbed bronze faucet set be purchased without the R2707 valve? Thanks for your assistance.
Thank you for your question. Models that work with the R2707 rough-in valve will also work with the R2700. Unfortunately, the Porter 37984-OB is only available as a complete set with the R2707 valve included.

Wall Mount R2707
Can the Delta R2707 (Spout & Handel Rough) be mounted on a wall? If no, can either the (Spout or Handle Rough) be mounted on a wall independently?
Thank you for your question. The Delta Roman tub Rough in valve R2707 model is a deck mount only valve assembly. The supply lines on the valve parts are not designed for an In wall installation.

Have R2707 kit. Deck is 3"thick. What to do?
Unfortunately Delta Faucet does not manufacture a thick deck extension kit for a roman tub rough. It's maximum deck thickness is 2 1/2".

I am looking at the Delta T2759-SS Trinsic Two Handle 3-Hole Roman Tub Faucet and was wondering what the difference is between the R2700 and R2707 valves? Is one valve preferred over the other?
Thanks for your question. The R2700 has a maximum deck thickness of 1 1/4", but can be extended up to 2 1/4" with the RP18504 extension kit. The mounting nuts must be tightened from below the deck.
The R2707 has a maximum deck thickness of 2 1/2". The mounting washers can be tightened from above the deck using the jack screws.

I have a Delta R2707 and when installed on the tub the handles open a full 180 degrees, is this correct? I thought they should only open 90 degrees?
Please let me know.
Thank you for your question. The Delta R2707-S valve stem unit assembly does not include a 1/4 turn stop that stops the handle at 90 degrees. Because of this, the handle will turn 180 degrees.

Will this also work with Delta T2738 Lahara Roman Tub Trim? Does my G.C. need anything else to install (this is a new build). Thanks.
Thank you for your inquiry, Poochie! Yes, the Rough-In Valve R2707-S can be used with the Delta Lahara Roman Tub T2738 trim kit for a complete install.

can the flex supply line on R2707-S be replaced?
Thank you for your question. The supply lines of the Delta Roman Tub Rough-In Valve R2707-S are not replaceable, you would need to purchase a whole new valve.
