Where can I find a new set of springs for the rubber seats?
The new cartridge comes with new rubber seats, but no springs.
Hi Zeb, Thank you for your question. The spring is available as a single piece as RP3427. You get 2 seats and 2 springs in RP4993. Most hardware stores or home centers should stock the RP4993 but would have to order the RP3427.

What bonnet and sleeve can be paired with this stem?
I believe I will reuse the escutcheon I have (although it is not preferred). I am also wondering what handle - prefer a knob rather than a lever-type handle.
Thank you for your question. The bonnet nut for the 1600 series is RP6079 and the sleeve is RP6081. The knob handle that will work with your model is H71. The escutcheon plate is RP7577 (no diverter hole) or RP7578 (with push-button diverter hole).

Is there a trim kit on the market compatible with this unit?
I have an old Delta Scald Guard trim kit that I need to replace and this is the unit RP1991 in the wall (not the plastic cartridge) that is compatible with the trim kits I have found on market (primarily using your site, Home Depot and Lowes). Please point me in the right direction! I have uploaded images of the fully assembled trim kit that was on their, the
Jamie, thank you for your question. We have available the cartridge (Delta part #RP1991), however, the square escutcheon plate is not available. Our round escutcheon plate (Delta part #RP6083) is available to use, but the hole size in the wall would need to be smaller than the square.
We recommend replacing both the rough-in valve as well as the trim.

Will Delta part #RP6083 fit my
Please see picture.
I have this cartridge RP1991 installed. The crystal knob is very close to the wall, and the hole on the wall is very small. Will plate #RP6083 fit? If it does, do you have a bronze one?
if RP6083 won't fit, what do you recommend?
Thank you very much!
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model RP1991 is for a 1600 series faucet and model RP6083 is for a 600 series faucet. We do have an escutcheon plate that will fit your 1600 series faucet with model RP7577, but it only available in Chrome finish.

I just discovered that the hot and cold operation is reversed on my RP1991. Can this be corrected by reversing the cartridge or do I need a plumber to switch the pipes in the wall?
Thank you for your question, Bikeracer161! The RP1991 cartridge is found on the 1600 series and moving the handle from the right to the left, starting cold then moving to hot. The raised stop on the cartridge should be placed on the left of the valve as this is usually where the hot water is coming in from, however this cartridge can be reversed for back-to-back installations or situations where the supplies are reversed.
Best regards, Edward
