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.

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

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

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?
Asked by: Series 1500 owner
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. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP32104 Best regards, Jon

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
Asked by: Sandra
Hi Sandra, 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). Best regards, Jon

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? TIA patrick.
Asked by: Patrick
Hi Patrick, 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. Best regards, Jon

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?
Asked by: Bob
Hi Bob, 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. Best regards, Jon

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?
Asked by: StormeHawke
Hi StormeHawke, 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. http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp32104.html http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp22734.html Best regards, Jon

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. Thanks
Asked by: Stepwi4
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). Best regards, Brandis
