I have an older classic trim kit and want to update it. The spout came off easily, but I am having trouble taking the crystal ball (chrome circular bases off)?
After I pulled the crystal balls off, what do I do next. Plz explain step by step.
Dear Ali Fl,
Thank you for your question. Once you have removed the handle from your roman tub T2710 faucet, you would simply unscrew the escutcheon bases counterclockwise to remove them.

Is the Delta Rough in propritary with Delta products only?
Will any other manufacturers Roman Tub trim kits work with the Delta Roman Tub Rough Model#: R2707? i am only looking to change out the trim handles and the water spout, not the plumbing.
Thank you for your question. The R2707 rough-in valve is only designed to work with Delta Roman Tub trim kits. It will work with any T27_ trim.
To browse our select, please click the link below and choose "Roman Tub".

What replacement faucets are compatible with dexel?
I would like to replace an old roman tub faucet. Product name is dexel. The screws are located on the underside of the faucet. What faucet designs are compatible?
Thank you for your question. Since the spout is not held in place by a set screw, new trim kits will not work with the existing valve. To use a current trim kit you will need to first replace the rough-in valve with the R2707.

Roman tub faucet removal
I've taken out the back screw,
Now do I pull it straight up, or turn it clockwise to remove it.
Thank you for your question! Once the set screw has been removed, you can pull straight up on the spout to remove it. Some models have an anti-swivel pin that will prevent you from rotating the spout. Otherwise, it may help to swivel it back and forth slightly as you pull up.

Can this be upgraded with new trim pieces?
I have the chrome version - 18 years old. I would like to change the trim only to brushed nickel. Anything available for this? I see a response from 4 years ago for items T2710 with H64 and A64. Is this still an option available?
Hi Linda, 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. If your current tub 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. The T2710 and H64/A64 are still available to order.
Best regards, Brandis

can i replace with new Windemere trim kit
So i have this old style 13 year old home and would like to update to satin nickel or stainless steel look from windemere. Will this work without having to replace all the plumbing can i just use the new trim.
Hi SD, Thank you for your question. As a rule of thumb if the set screw is located on the back of the existing 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.

How to repalce an old tub faucet
I have this (see the image) old Delta Classic Roman Tub Faucet that I am trying to replace with a new chrome version. However, I am not able to remove the old one - I think it is screwed from the bottom of the tub and hence the only option is to break the tiled enclosure around the tub to access the bottom of the tub to unscrew. Does anyone know or can confirm? What is the new model that I would need to buy if I do not want to changed the rough in or anything - all I want is to replace the trim. Any help/insight/suggestions would be highly appreciated.
Hi MMN, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately our new roman tub trims would not be compatible with the pictured faucet rough in valve. The entire faucet above and below deck would have to be replaced.

I bought a new delta oil rubbed brone trim kit.
I was able to replace the handles very easily but i can not get the spout off. I have remove the allen screw on the front bottom of the spout and all of the putty under neat the seat of the spout but I can not get it off. If there is a set screw does that always mean it is a slip off ? Would wd40 help at all or some crw? any Ideas and Thank you.
Hi JR, Thank you for your question. Once the set screw is removed the spout should slide off. Often times mineral build up will make it hard to remove the spout. We recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water and wrapping the towel around the screw opening in the spout. Allow the solution a chance to soak in, the longer the better to help break up the mineral deposits.
If the set screw is located on the front of your current spout, the new trim will not fit. For the new trims to work on an older rough the tub spout set screw should be on the back of the spout. Otherwise the rough will also need to be replaced.
