Can I replace this Lahara Roman Tub with the old Delta that I have
I have attached a photo of the existing tub trims, please let me know if I can replace that with Lahara Roman Tub 3 hole trim?
Thank you for your question. Based on your picture, you should be able to replace your current roman tub with any Delta Faucet roman tub trim.

Dimensions of the Lahara faucet
The technical specifications say that the faucet is 9 1/4" long, but the diagram says the length is either 8 1/2" or 11", depending on where it's measured from. How is the 9 1/4" dimension measured?
Also, I have a 20-year old faucet similar to the one in the picture in Sudhi's question. The answer suggests that any Delta faucet will work. However, this old one has a rod next to the main plumbing hole that looks like it's meant for additional stabilization. Does the newer faucet have that? Also, is it likely my existing rough-in will work?
Thank you for your questions. Delta Faucet model # T2738 has a length of 8 3/4" from the middle of spout to the middle of the aerator. Thank you for bringing the incorrect spec to our attention. We will get it fixed as soon as possible.
Regarding your current faucet, it sounds like you have an anti-swivel pin in your faucet now. The was used for stabilization and if it is there, then you can only replace your faucet with Delta Faucet model # T2710 without changing your existing valve. This faucet is only available in Chrome.

Does the Lahara Roman Tub trim come without the drain pin?
For applications where the drain lever is located on the tub drain assembly.
Hi Ditt, Thank you for your question. The T2738 does not come with a drain pin, it is just a decorative finial.

Do I have right valve for Lahara Roman Tub Trim set
I am looking to replace the old Delta trim set (circa 1996, photos attached) on my Roman tub set. How can i tell if the existing valve can be used for Lahara? It will be very difficult to change out the valve. If this valve does not work with Lahara, please recommend a currently available handle set that will work.
Thank you for your question. You're existing roman tub can be changed out to the Lahara trim without changing out the valve body inside of the deck. The way to tell is on your spout, there is a set screw either on the front or the back of the spout. Your set screw is in the back of your spout as all of our current roman tub units have. The handles for the Lahara will fit the valve bodies, as well.

Increase hot water temperature?
I have this unit installed in my new home and cannot figure out how to increase hot water temperature please advise.
Thank you for your question. When turning only the hot handle on, the temperature will be the same as the hot water supply. You may need to adjust your water heater.

Is it an anti-scald faucet.
MN plumbing code require tub faucets to have a temperature limiting device that meets ASSE standard 1030. Is it built into the faucet or is it needed to have a separate device installed?
Hi Jeffnels, Thank you for your question. The model T2738 roman tub trim is not anti-scald. You would need to install an additional mixing valve to the faucet hot water supply like our R2570-MIXLF.

What is the turn radius of the faucet valve/handles from off to full on?
I have Model T2738 with the R2707 kit. The existing Delta Roman tub faucet has turn knobs - not handles. I’m constrained by the backsplash and will not be able to have the “off“ position of the new faucet handles at 90 degrees to the position of the spout. I assume I can install the faucet valve at a slight angle, to have the faucet handles clear the backsplash, or in the alternative, can I just install the faucet handles on the faucet valves at an offset angle? If the full turn-on radius of the of the faucet is more than 90 degrees, it maybe hindered/blocked by the spout to achieve “full” on.
Hi Larry, Thank you for your question. It would be possible to install the valve at an angle so that the handles don't hit the backsplash in the off position. The handles range of motion is 180 degrees with full flow at approximately 135 degrees. They will hit the spout when on.

Why is there a diverter in the lahara roman tub faucet Model#: T2738 when the hand shower isn't included?
Thank you for your question. The Delta T2738 roman tub does not have a diverter. The 'lift rod' on the back of the spout is purely cosmetic for a 'finished' look.
