Will the T2705-SS install on my existing RP18227 Roman tub rough-in kit that was installed about 18 years ago?
Hi Ken, Thank you for your question!
The T2705-SS should fit onto your existing RP18227 rough in valve.

I would like to replace an old Delta roman tub faucet (model 2770) with new model (T2792). Can I replace trim only?
I would like to not have to replace the valve system underneath, as it is sweated on to water supply. Removed handles and spout, but the trim rings are attached to base, not sure how to remove without removing nuts from underneath.
Hi Dave, 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 for you. Some examples are T2710 and T2792.
If your current spout does not have a set screw on the back side of the spout, then you would need to install a R2707 rough in valve below your tub decking to be able to use the new trim kits. Also, you will have to unthread the handle base to remove it.

Are there rubber inserts for the holes on the hot and cold turn knobs?
Hi Christina, Thank you for your question!
There are not buttons to cover the set screw holes on the handles of the T2705-SS roman tub.
Best regards, Brandis

Which trim to use
I have a T2705 with Crystal Knobs and a RP14979 with a crystal know. What would be the best replacement in A nickel finish?
Thank you for your question! Please check to make sure the spout has a set screw on the back. If so, any current T27_ trim kit should work with the existing valve. However, you will need access below the deck to change the transfer valve trim (RP14979) if the unit was installed prior to 2006. Our Stainless Steel finish is similar to a brushed nickel.

Switching Trim on Roman Tub
I have a roman tub with a Delta faucet that I'd like to switch out. I have no access under the tub to touch the pipes/rough-in set up/valves. I have H616 lever hot and cold handles in brushed nickel and brass (two-tone). I also have roman tub faucet T5722-SS installed right now with H616 handles. I want to remove them and replace with the Cassidy T2795-LHP faucet and H695 cross handles in polished chrome. Can the trim be easily switched out using the same valves and set up?
Hi Gen P,
Thank you for your question! If you have the T5722-SS trim kit or any model that has a set screw on the back of the spout, you should be able to use the T2795-LHP with the existing valve.

Switch from T2710 to T2738?
We just bought a house with a gold T2710 on the tub, and there is no access to the rough-in. The spout has a set screw on the back, so reading this page made me think I could swap to the T2738. But http://answers.deltafaucet.com/answers/7551-en_us/product/faq_finish/delta-finish-questions-answers/questions.htm says "Delta Faucet model # T2710 can only be changed out to another T2710 because there is an anti-swivel pin in place underneath the spout." Can I switch from the T2710 to T2738 without accessing the rough-in? Can I change the stem assembly (to avoid the faucet's set-screw puncturing the plastic stem I currently have)? Finally, we have "brushed nickel" for everything else in our bathroom. Is the closest thing from Delta the "stainless steel"?
Hi Jackie, Thank you for your questions. The T2738 trim will fit on the rough that the T2710 uses. The spout that comes in the T2738 trim is not large enough to cover the additional hole left by the anti-swivel pin used with the T2710 spout. The hole will have to be repaired.
When switching from knob style to lever style handles you will want to switch out the existing stem assemblies to RP25513 that has the metal stem and will allow the lever handles to function properly.
Our (SS) brilliance stainless finish is a brushed finish comparable to other brands brushed nickel.

replacing the trim to my roman tub
I think I currently have the T2710 trim kit installed in my tub (just bought the house) and I think it was installed in 1994. The set screw is on the back of the faucet. There is no access to swap out the rough-in, and I was hoping to update away from the brass fixture currently installed. Are there any trim kits I can use? I was hoping to swap to the T2705 or something similar.
Hi The Basian, Thank you for your question. In most cases where the roman tub spout is attached with a set screw in the back of the spout the current trims will fit on the existing rough in valve. To verify if the new trims will work please compare the spout connection on your current faucet to the connection of the R2707 rough. If the connections are the same the new trims will work

Can I use T2705 with my 25year old Delta gold garden tub set?
Sorry I don't know model number. Spout has set screw in back but valves are old style with washers. I am trying to refresh without pulling tub. TIA
Hi Alpharettark, Thank you for your question. As a rule of thumb if the set screw is located on the back of the roman tub spout the new trims will work with your existing rough in valves. To verify please remove your existing tub spout and see if your rough in spout connection is the same as the attached picture of the current R2707.
