My 1500 has screw holes in the 5 and 7 position. Why have you not made a conversion kit for this combination?
Also, I read I should consider buying RP 32106, RP28595 and A74. If I buy these parts what escutcheon do I buy to fit my 5 and 7 position or is this for 1 and 7 escutcheon screw positions.
I really do not want to change rough in the wall. Other options please?
Can you tell me what the model number for my valve cartridge?
Hi Series 1500 owner,
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not make an escutcheon plate for models with screws at 5 and 7 o'clock. The cartridge for your unit is the RP32104.

How does the changing to a 1700 series change the temperature control when my 1500 has a turn on lever and a separate temperature lever
wanting to change to the oil rubbed bronze color and we have a 1500 series now. I called Delta and they gave me the RP22734 (bonnent nut) part and the RP32104 (cartridge) part and she said this would convert. Does this make it a single lever for temperature and turning on the water? Its a shower only--no tub
Thank you for your question. Both the 1500 and 1700 series have a volume handle with a temperature knob on the front. This kit will include everything you need to convert the shower. However, the 1500 series can only be converted if the screws on the escutcheon plate are at the 1 and 7 o'clock position (not 5 and 7).

Want to upgrade this...
Hello. First off, I'm not sure what series Monitor I have. I have attached a picture. It has screws at 1 and 7 (picture is sideways). Second, it works just fine, but as you can see, the trim kit is old and worn. I would like to replace the parts you see with something more up to date.
Would this conversion kit work for me? Or could I just upgrade the cartridge and bonnet ring, then choose a 1700 series trim kit in a different finish?
Thank you for your question. This conversion kit would work for your shower. However, you can also replace the cartridge and bonnet nut (RP32104, RP22734), and use any 17 series Monitor trim kit that we currently make.

RP29405 conversion kit sleeve (RP50880) does not fit.
I believe I have a newer model 1500 (see Photo) shower faucet. I purchased an RP29405 conversion kit. Everything appears okay except the sleeve (RP50880) is slightly too narrow to fit over the valve body. Any suggestions?
Thank you for your question. Please be sure to use the bonnet nut that comes with the trim kit rather than the original. The sleeve should fit over the new bonnet.

Oil Rubbed/Venetian Bronze?
WIll this conversion kit work to attach a 1700 series trim kit in venetian or oil rubbed bronze over it, or is it strictly going to work with the chrome finish?
Thank you for your question. If you have a 1500 series with the screw holes at 1 and 7 o'clock and you would like to change to the 1700 series in another style or finish, you can use any Monitor 17 series trim kit (not TempAssure 17T) without purchasing this conversion kit. However, you will need to purchase the RP32104 cartridge to use in place of the cartridge that comes with the trim kit, along with the RP22734 bonnet nut.

I have the old style and I threw away the sleeve, handle and temperature control parts before I knew they were out of manufacture.
Is there anything I can replace them with? I have attached pictures.
Hi Stepwi4, Thank you for your question!
You have the old 1500 series. None of our current trims will fit due to the fact your screw holes are at the 5 O'clock and 7" O'clock position. However, you can convert the handles over to the 1700 series by ordering the RP32106 kit ( shown on the website) which includes the volume control, rotational limit stop, spindle and 1700 series RP32104 valve cartridge. Along with the RP28595 temperatue dial and cover and either the A74 or A72 accent ( shown on the website).

What series tub/shower valve do i have?
I am remodeling my tub/shower and need replacement trim for this.
Hi Jake, Thank you for your question!
I have determined you have our 600 series tub/shower. It is a discontinued unit and none of the current trims we offer will fit onto the existing valve body. However, we do manufacture a renovation kit part number RP54870. The kit comes with the escutcheon(face plate), screws, sleeve, dome shaped cap assembly, lever handle and internal parts. You will have to order your choice of showerhead, shower arm, shower flange and tub spout separate. The kit is available in Chrome, Venetian bronze and Stainless Steel finish. The kit can be viewed on our website.

Do I have to upgrade to 17 Series to fix a leaky 1500 Series shower?
I believe the monitor I have is a 1500 Series (from the mid-90s). The screws are located at 1 and 7. The monitor has the separate temperature control at the end of the handle.
The shower has started to leak through the shower head and I had a few repair questions:
Is there a replacement cartridge that does not require me to convert the trim to a 17 Series?
Are there seats, springs, and quad rings that could be used on the 1500 Series to fix the leak (and not replace the cartridge)?
Or, do I have to use this conversion kit to upgrade my 1500 Series to the 17 Series?
Hi BF, Thank you for your question!
You will not have to change your trim to a 17 series to repair your leak. If you have a slight drip you can order the RP28603 seats, springs and quad seals. If the leak still occurs after replacing the washers you will need the RP32104 valve cartridge to resolve the issue.
