Delta T4797-SSFL-LHP faucet does not get as hot as the lavatory faucet? They vary by more than 30 degrees?
Both faucets are connect to the same instant water heater line. The tub has personnel hand shower and the temperature is also lower than the lavatory faucet. The water temperature at the lavatory is approximately 125 where the tub faucet and handheld shower is only 95. My instant water heater is set at 130. My plumber has stated there is a mixing valve which limits temperature on the tub faucet? I was then told to turn the instant water heater down to 125? There is a shower and a second lavatory in the same bathroom which both of these faucets temperature is 125 degree. All faucets are delta.
Thank you for your inquiry! To get hotter water from your Delta Traditional Floor Mount Tub Filler T4797-RBFL-LHP, you would need to adjust the rotational limit stop on the top of the cartridge assembly, under the handle. Please see pages 7 and 8 module 3 of the below Maintenance/Installation document link. Your hotter water heater should also be no higher than 120 degrees.

As I turn the tub filler on, the water comes on hot, and the more I turn, gets cooler. This is opposite all my other tubs. DOes this need correcting?
Were the water lines reversed and do they need to be corrected? Is this easy to do? ALso, after use, the tub filler spurts water out, in the off position. Why does this happen? I was in the tub, relaxing, and then water suddenly spurt from the faucet even though it was not on.
Thank you for your question! Based on your description, this can be resolved by removing the cartridge and flipping it around. A small amount of water may drain out of the spout as pressure is relieved from the hose after the sprayer is used.

Can I change the spout to a waterfall type?
I like the cassidy style of open or waterfall lav faucets and would like to match that style with a tub filler.
Thank you for your question. The Delta Cassidy Floor Mount Roman Tub T4797-FL-LHP faucet collection is not designed with an open channel spout. The open channel spout model we make is the Delta Ara T4768-FL, the spout are not interchangeable with these faucets.
