Need more detail instruction for copper sweat installation of the spout
The installation instruction for copper sweat installation of the tub spout is not detailed enough.
For example, how long does the copper pipe should be from the wall? And how far should the adapter be away from the wall if it shouldn't be against the wall?
Can you please clarify?
Thank you for your question. When sweating on Delta Faucet model # RP61269, you will cut the tubing 2"-4" from the finished wall. After brazing, the adapter will be 1/4"-1/2" from the finished wall.
When brazing on the adapter, remove the external o-ring first and cool the brass down prior to re-installing the o-ring. If desired, tubing may be cut off just beyond or flush with the end of the adapter.

Will the T14492 model shower handle work with our existing RP19804 cartridge?
Thank you for your inquiry! As long as the screw holes on your large round escutcheon plate are at the 1 and 7 o'clock positions and you do not have a push button shower diverter directly below the off and on handle, then the Delta Addison T14492-SS and any of our trim kits that start with a T13 or a T14 will interchange for you.This trim will attach/work with your older RP19804 cartridge too.
