I have an older style "ball" type tub faucet handle which is clear in color and we want to upgrade to a bronze type single handle. We do not want to replace the entire manifold, is there a way to fit a single handle bronze handle on a mixing type manifold?
Thank you for your question. We need to determine what style your old faucet is before we can determine if the new faucet will work. When you turn on your faucet, if you push up and turn it to the left or right, then you have a 600 series faucet. If that is the case, the 1700 series will not work.
If you turn your faucet on by just turning to the right or left, then you have a 1300 series and if you have a valve that is older than 2006, then the 1700 series will not work. You can however upgrade to a lever handle like th H79RB.
If you have two handles stacked on top of each other, one ofr volume and one for temperature, then you have a 1700 series and this faucet will work very well.
