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.

Will this work with the 600 series round stem?

I have a Delta Brilliance Polished Brass shower and tub spout with pull down diverter that seems to be a 600 series with what Pfister's Universal Trim Kit says is a "round stem." It's like the one pictured, but instead of the circle piece with the slot in it, there is a circle piece with a triangle. The water turns on by lifting the handle, and adjusts hot or cold by moving the handle side to side. Will this kit work with that? And what kind of tub spout can I use to replace the pull down spout? I'm trying to renovate to a different color.
Asked by: Joby
Hi Joby, Thank you for your question. The RP54870 600 series renovation kit comes in chrome, brilliance stainless, and venetian bronze finishes. The kit will come with the necessary parts to convert from the acrylic knob handle to a lever style handle. We do not recommend using competitors parts with our faucets and doing so will void the product warranty. The pull down diverter tub spout is available as the RP17543 in the chrome and brilliance stainless finishes. Thanks, Dave

Re-tiling over existing tiles on shower wall.

I am putting new tiles over existing tiles and this will bring this trim out approx. 5/16". The bonnet nut still shows with about 1/8" clearance behind it and the screws are long enough. The question is; will any of the trim interfere with the movement of the handle and if it does, is there an extension available? The old plastic handle would still work.
Asked by: Ba
Hi Ba, Thank you for your question! The new tile should not cause any issue with the operation of the handle. Thanks, Jon

I would like to get the renovation kit for the 600 series tub and shower, but what tub spout will fit into the existing piping?

The tub spout I have screws on to a male coupling. Are there any delta tub spouts that will go with the 600 series renovation kit in the bronze color? The piping sticks out about 1.5 inches from the wall.
Asked by: Erin
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP54870RB does not include the showerhead, tub spout or shower arm and flange in the rennovation kit. We offer a few tub spouts in the Venetian Bronze finish that can be threaded onto a pipe. Here is a list of the model numbers: RP43161RB, RP42915RB, RP34357RB, RP51303RB, RP52148RB, RP53419RB, RP61269RB, and RP72565RB.

Renovation Kit

Hi, I have a picture of my tub and shower handles that were original with our home (1995). Will this renovation kit work to replace these? I see that I will need a plug for the diverter opening in the tub faucet. What other parts do I need? Thanks so much for your help!
Asked by: Lisa
Hi Lisa, Thank you for your question! You have a 1500 series tub/shower unit. Unfortunately, we do not have a trim kit for 1500 series units with screw holes at 5 and 7 o'clock. However, we do have some replacement parts available. I have attached the parts diagram. Best regards, Jon
