The rod that turns my tub sprayer on has pulled out all the way, it does not work at all. Do I need a new rod or a new diverter? It's 3 years old.
Roman tub set up with sprayer
Hello Monroe, Thank you for your question!
In a situation such as yours either the lift rod, diverter or both has stripped out. I would suggest replacing both items.

Is the delta diverter value assembly - R4700 the same for all roman tubs?
I pulled my out and it looks like the R4700 but I am not sure of the model of my 10 year old delta facet.. I am hoping delta only mady 1 type that looks like this.. possibly length may be a difference?
Thank you for your question! The RP40668 will fit on any R4700 or R4707 deck mount Roman Tub Rough-In Valve.

How to remove this product?
I have a replacement valve and can't access the assembly. I have removed the actual faucet and see the old valve coming out of a brass tube, but it seems stuck. I look under the tub and see the assembly down there, but it is all wired together and doesn't look like it can move either direction. Is there a trick to removing THIS PIECE SPECIFICALLY?
Hi Jon, Thank you for your question. Once the roman tub spout and lift rod have been removed there is nothing mechanical holding the diverter valve assembly in place. The diverter will slide out of the valve. Mineral build up may cause the diverter to stick in place. Pour a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water around the diverter into the valve body and allow the solution time to break up the mineral deposits. This process should allow you to more easily pull the diverter from the valve assembly.

We have an 8 yr old Danze D215000BT Roman Tub faucet. The handheld sprayer no longer will flow?
I have removed the middle valve assembly and checked for plugging, but there is none. It appears that there is no water entering into the sprayer hose. Would this diverter valve be the cause?
Hi Dennis, Thank you for your question. Danze is a competitor's product. We do not recommend using Delta parts in other brands.
