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

HOW CAN YOU CHANGE HANDLE ORIENTATION
PURCHASED THE CLASSIC ROMAN TUB TRUM T-2705 TO REPLACE A OLDER CROME DELTA ROMAN TUB FAUCET WITH KNOB HANDLES. THE ROUGH CAN NOT BE CHANGED AS THERE IS NO ACCESS . THE LEVER HANDLES GO ON BUT ONLY ORIENT TO THE INSIDE POSITION WHEN OFF. THE STEM IS THE ONE THAT WAS UNDER THE OTHER HANDLES AND CAN ONLY GO IN ONE POSITION. THE NEW HANDLES FIT ON BUT POINT TO INSIDE. IS THERE ANOTHER STEM UNIT THAT i CAN USE TO CORRECT THIS?
Thank you for your question. Make sure the raised portion of the stem assembly faces to the right on both sides, hot and cold. This should orient your handles properly. If the portion of the stem that you screw the handle into is plastic you will want to change the stem units to RP24096 which have that portion in brass so the handle set screw doesn't puncture the side.

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.

Can T2705 be used with a 600 series rough in valve?
Renovating our bathroom and purchased the trim kit. A lot of water leaks from the spout. Handles fit the valves fine.
Thank you for your question. I will need clarification of your model numbers, please. The 600 series rough is a single handle tub and shower rough in valve. The T2705 is a roman tub trim. The two are not compatible at all.

What cartridge model is used with the T2705 Roman 3 hole model?
It is leaking and I wish to change the cartridges
Hi Cam, Thank you for your question. Your model T2705 faucet uses the RP24096 stem assembly and the RP4993 seats and springs to control the water flow. Replacing these parts should stop your leak.

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.

Can the Delta Roman Tub Trim, model # T2705-SS be used with the Delta Roman Tub roughin kit from model T2710?
Thank you for your question! The rough used with Delta Faucet model #T2705-SS also corresponds with model #T2710.

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
