We bought a house with this installed, installed behind Marble tiles and we do not have any extras to open the wall. So we would like to keep the mechanism in the wall and replace the outer/visible parts with a faucet with venetian bronze finish, can this be done and please provide me with info on models that would accommodate. We just do not want to have to break the marble tiled wall to replace. Thank you,
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # T17130-CB can be replaced with any 1700 series faucet but you will need to keep your old cartridge. The new trim you purchase will include a cartridge that works in a multi-choice valve, and you probably do not have one of those in the wall. The new trim will fit as long as you use the same cartridge as you have in the wall now. If that needs replaced, then you will need to order an RP32104.
