Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Upgrade Bought this to replace the old gold fixtures in our master bath without a total remodel. This was a beautiful upgrade. We wish we would have done it years ago!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So grateful to Delta for offering this product! Our ranch home, built in the mid-'70's, still had the original 600 Series shower valve & trim. You know the model; the one with the crystal ball that's been around forever. Ours still functioned ok, but looked old and the finish did, too. We were wanting to update our shower & bath fixtures, but our plumbing supply store said we'd have to change the entire valve in order to change to something more modern. Unfortunately, in our case, the layout of our shower did not offer a way to access the valve plumbing from behind (via drywall). Rather, we would have to cut through the front tile. We really didn't want to do this as our tile was perfect. We just wanted a new plate and turn-on handle. The more I thought about this, the more it upset me that there wasn't an easier fix for our situation. Fortunately, a call to Delta's Customer Service solved all our problems. My situation was quickly understood and Delta informed me that this renovation kit was what I needed. The only thing additional we needed to buy was a plug to cap the existing diverter as the new kit doesn't have a diverter button. We then bought a new tub spout with a diverter button to accommodate this change. Plumbers had no problem installing. BUYER PLEASE NOTE: There is a learning curve to overcome with the new on/off lever: the old crystal ball was UP to turn water on, then LEFT (counter-clockwise) for hot water & RIGHT (clockwise) for cold water (as the arrows showed. With the new lever, you lift it up to turn on, then R (clockwise) for hot water & L (counter-clockwise) for cold. Keep in mind that the BOTTOM of the lever goes in the direction of the temperature you're wanting. Sadly, relatives visiting from Europe learned this the hard way and endured several lukewarm showers until they felt they should ask us if our water heater was going out. Several laughs later everyone was brought up to speed. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Delta, for offering this renovation kit for people like us. You saved us a lot of money in plumbing and re-tiling charges which allowed us to put money elsewhere. Only wish you offered the kit in polished nickel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot & Cold not Reversed I just received item, and it took a few minutes figure it out. You have to let the ball on the tip of the handle guide you. Most people look at the top of the lever and let it guide them (this is wrong). If you swing the bottom of the lever to the left it will be hot, to the right it will be cold.

Pull Down Tub Spout Diverter in ORB

I have the RP5487ORB and have purchased the Overflow, Shower Arm and Showerhead. I do not see a Tub Spout Pull Down Diverter in ORB, what can I use in the scenario?

Does the renovation kit work with the 600 series shower faucet that came with a metal handle?

I believe that my shower faucet has the RP70 stainless ball in the valve and not the RP212 that the kit references. Is the RP20111 a replacement or upgrade for the RP70? I am pretty sure the valve body is the same. Thanks
Asked by: Greg
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP54870 will work with the metal handle.

I used this kit to renovate our shower. The lever weighs enough to shut off the water when in the central position. On the old version there was a ring on the cam to adjust the tension on the ball. Is there something similar for the lever cam?

Asked by: meholmes
OK Rossana so what should I do to prevent it turning off from the weight of the handle?

ow to convert from push-in diverter to tub spout diverter?

I have a 600 series faucet with the crystal ball. If I use this renovation kit RP54870, is there anything else I need to do to convert it to a tub spout diverter other than just buying RP19895 and the plug cap RP2865. Any plumbing additions or alterations or just screw on new tub spout?
Asked by: Julie
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP54870 does include everything needed to upgrade the 600 series faucet except the showerhead, shower arm, shower flange and tub spout. If you do have a diverter on your escutcheon plate, you will also need to purchase the RP2865 push button diverter plug and then pick a tub spout that has a diverter included on it.

Need more than the 600 rennov. kit offers

I also will need the shower arm, drain, flanges, tub overflow disk, etc. Do I buy all those separately and does delta have them...or are they generic? Would those also be available at a store like Home Depot or Lowes?
Asked by: Babs
Hi Babs, Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP54870 is the renovation kit for the 600 series faucets. It is everything that you will need at the valve and does not include the tub spout, shower arm, shower flange, or tub drain. You can pair them with any of our showerheads and tub spouts or tub drains by matching the Chrome finish. Check with your local retailer or wholesaler for a wide variety of choices. Thanks. Jody

What part do I need to fill the gap shown in the photograph?

I recently submitted a question to Delta inquiring if the existing acrylic ball on my 1600 series shower faucet could be replaced with an ADA compliant lever. Thank you for your advise and guidance. The lever (RP48717) fits and accommodates my needs very efficiently. However, there is still a problem. In the attached photograph, you can see that there is a part missing between the base of the lever and the hole in the escutcheon. The distance from the hole in the escutcheon to the base of the lever is approximately 1-1/4 inches. What part do I need to fill the gap shown in the photograph?
Asked by: Marjorie
Hi Marjorie, Thank you for your question. The pictured faucet is missing the RP6081 sleeve that will cover the exposed portion of the brass valve body. http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp6081.html Thanks, Dave

Use this kit to upgrade Delta 1600?

Can this reno kit be used on a Delta 1600 faucet that uses what appears to be an RP1991 cartridge? Can you replace the cartridge with the ball? If not what valve(s) are compatible w/ this reno kit, as there does not appear to be a trim upgrade in antique bronze for the 1600 faucet.
Asked by: Bob
Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. Currently there is not a renovation kit available for the 1600 series faucets, the 600 kit will not work. The trim sleeve and escutcheon are still available for the 1600, but only in the chrome finish. Thanks, Dave
