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.

Redoing a shower and plan to install R10000-UNBXHF or -UNWSHF valve.  I believe that I will need RP46074 to go with it.  For the trim we have RP54870SS.  Will this trim work with the valve and cartridge or do you recommend something else? Thanks.

Asked by: Doug
Thank you for your question, Doug! The RP54870SS Renovation kit is meant for an older 600 series which uses a ball valve rather than a cartridge. The RP46074 cartridge will only work with a current Multichoice valve and 13/14 trim kit. Below is a link to our current 13/14 shower trims. Please note, these kits will include the RP46074 cartridge. https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/showering/tub-and-shower-faucets?categories=Delta_Bathroom_Showering_Tub+and+Shower+Faucets_Shower+Valve&ValveType=Single-function+pressure+balance+cartridge Best regards, Edward

The plumber has told me that my shower handle replacement should have a diamond shape connector hole inside. Does this kit have that? I am replacing a crystal handle that has a ball in it, it rolls up or down for on/off, and then left/right for hot/cold

I currently have a ball valve that lifts with the shield shaped piece to determine hot and cold.  If I get a new kit with the just the vertical shaped hole piece and a plastic ball, will that work?  do you still lift this one or does this style turn?  

Asked by: Zippy
Hello Zippy, Thank you for your question. The Delta Renovation Kit RP54870 is designed for our Delta 600 series faucets. The handle of this unit pushes up to start the water running and you rotate it right and left to control the hot and cold water temperature. This kit comes with all of the handle trim and internal parts for an updated/upgraded look. Best regards, Tanya

Our original Delta shower faucet installed in 2001is model N1424-74.  We are doing some upgrades and need to know if Delta conversion kit RP5487ORB is compatible 

Asked by: DJFRED4
Hello DJFRED4, Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta Renovation Kit RP54870RB is designed for a 600 series ball valve unit. However, any of our trim kits that start with a T13 or a T14 will interchange for your older Classic N1424-74 model, without replacing the valve, in the wall. Best regards, Tanya

To whom it may concern How will I know if this is the right kit replacement for me? I don't see any model number on my old leaky shower valve, all it say is, delta and it's the Crystal ball one, any help will greatly appreciated, thank you

Asked by: denz
Thank you for your question, denz! The 600 series that this renovation kit is designed to replace, operates by moving the handle up to turn on the water and then left or right for hot and cold water. This is the only series that operates in this way. The 600 series also uses a ball valve rather than a shower cartridge. Best regards, Edward

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?

Hello. I have an old RP90 shower lever: https://www.deltafaucet.com/own/RP90 Will this renovation fit as a replacement for this model?

Asked by: Fawn
Hi, Fawn! Thank you for your question. The RP54870 Renovation kit will work with the shower unit that uses the RP90 handle assembly. Best Regards, Rosanna
