Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Repair Kit This is a full repair/conversion kit for my 1500 series shower valve and very easy to install. Just follow the directions and exploded view. A couple things to know the O-ring fits over the valve body behind the bonnet to align the sleeve and escutcheon to the valve body. Also, having installed an older kit which needed a new handle ordered separately, this kit came with a one piece handle assembly as well as a new showerhead and shower arm.

Escutcheon screws at 5 & 7 o'clock?

Is there a conversion kit available for my Monitor 1500 with cover screws at approx 5 & 7 o'clock? It also has a diverter button at 6 o'clock.
Asked by: jscm3
Thank you for your question. We do not manufacture replacement trim for your 1500 series faucet with the screw holes at 5 & 7. You will need to replace the valve to get a different faucet. We recommend the R10000-UNBX universal multi-choice valve to use any 1300/1400 or 1700 series trim.

Trying to Convert 1500 to 1700 Series

I have 1997 1500 series Brass (See Photo) with Push Button Diverter and temp control. Want to convert to Oil Rubbed Bronze or Venetian Bronze. Can't seem to find a reno kit with Push Button diverter and temp control. I could try to paint my Escutcheon but not sure it will work with the newer trim parts. Is there a way I can bypass the diverter (take it off) and go with the more traditional tub spout with pull up diverter? Appreciate your feedback on best options available. Vr
Asked by: beckerdon
Hi Don, Thank you for your question! The diverter can be capped using the RP2865 plug. The RP32104 cartridge will then allow you to use any current T17 (not T17T) series trim kit! http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp2865.html http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp32104.html http://www.deltafaucet.com/bath/tubshower/filter.html Thanks, Jon

I have a 1500 Monitor unit installed in 1993. It has the holes in 1 and 7 position. You sell a cartridge (RP32104) that is the same part number shown for the 1993 unit. Will this cartridge work in the 1993 unit? If not do I use conversion kit rp29405?

Asked by: JimM
Hi, JimM! Thank you for your question. The Delta RP32104 valve cartridge assembly will work with your Delta Monitor 1500 series unit. The RP29405 will also work. Best Regards, Rosanna

Delta monitor valve

I think I have a 1500 monitor valve. The screws are at 5 and 7 o'clock and the house was built in 1993. I want to change the chrome finish to a nickel one. What is the easiest and cheapest way to do this. Does delta make a trim kit in nickel for this or what parts are needed to upgrade it Thanks William
Asked by: Wattard
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model 1500 series with the screw holes at 5 and 7 cannot be replaced without replacing the valve too. Our current trim will not fit your valve. We recommend purchasing our Multi-choice valve which is model R10000-UNBX. This valve can be used with any 1300/1400 or 1700 series trims and can easily be upgraded to different trims without going behind the wall.

I need a 1500 to 1700 conversion kit in stainless or brushed/satin nickel (screws at 5 and 7 o'clock. Is this finish available?

Asked by: Mark Horton
Hi, Mark! Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we no longer have trim kits with escutcheon plates with screw holes at 5 & 7 o'clock positions. We recommend to replace the whole valve body to our Delta R10000 MultiChoice Rough Valve to change the trim to a Stainless Steel finish. I do apologize for this inconvenience. Best Regards, Rosanna

Monitor 1500 Escutcheon holes 5 & 7 o'clock - will RP32104 or RP29405 parts work

I will need to replace my cartridge eventually. Not leaking, i am losing water temperature. Appears to be RP16207 replaced by RP32104. I attempted to replace this before but the overall length of the RP32104 with adapters seemed longer than the RP16207 that came out. I lost water temperature in the RP32014 after less than two years. Also volume and temperature turning effort seemed very high. Can the RP32014 be used with my valve? Can i purchase the RP29405, re-use my existing face plate and solve the fitting and turning effort problems? BTW i soaked my RP16207 in vinegar to got my temperature back. But the cartridge is 20 years old and won't last forever. I need to plan my next step. Thank you
Asked by: Jim
Thank you for your question. The replacement cartridge for your faucet would be the RP32104.

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?
Asked by: BF
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. Best regards, Brandis

Looking for help in identifying the correct conversion kits and place of purchase for delta bathroom fixtures.

We have recently purchased a vacation home and in process of remodeling. The two bathrooms have gold fixtures and we would like to replace with satin nickel finish. Need assistance in identifying the correct conversion kit for each. I have attached several pictures to assist with identifying the correct replacement. Pardon the condition, we took these upon purchase and they need a good cleaning. Please advise and thank you for your help.
Asked by: Jack
Hi Jack, Thank you for your question. The pictured tub/shower faucet is a 1300/1400 series faucet. You can use our current T13/T14 series trims with your existing rough in valve. The new trims will ship with a new cartridge that will not fit the existing rough. You will have to continue to use the existing cartridge or replace it with a new RP19804. The roman tub faucet is a Victorian collection model 2755. You can use any of the current roman tub trims with your existing rough in valve. Thanks, Dave
