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.

600 series shower faucet leaks under handle ONLY when water is on ?

only leaks when water is running / on. will the renovation kit fix this ? I have the front bonnet nut losose but have not removed it yet.
Asked by: Bob
Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. You can try tightening the adjusting ring that is part of the cap under the handle to stop the leak. If this does not help, you will want to replace the cam assembly. The part number for the cam assembly is RP61 if your faucet has a lever style handle, and RP188 if you have the acrylic knob handle. The RP54870 renovation kit would supply all new internal parts. Thanks, Dave

Are stops built in to the Delta 600 series?

The hot and cold feed into the valve each have a screw driver slotted, threaded bolt in the center of a nut on each side of the valve. Are these stops or some kind of adjusters? Do I back off the nut to turn the screw? Problem is low hot water flow. Cold water O.K. I suspect a blockage on hot water side of ball valve. Thanks in advance
Asked by: Herb
Hi Herb, Thank you for your question. Some 600 series models have screw driver stops on the hot and cold supplies. Please make sure the stop on the hot side is fully opened. Best regards, Jon

Can I replace my existing tub/shower valve with a current model.

I have a 20 year old shower and tub valve, the kind with a crystal ball handle that moves up and down to turn the water on and off, and turns to adjust the temperature. The valve still works fine, but it is in shiny brass and we would like to convert to stainless or brushed nickel. I am looking for a replacement valve that can use the existing valve body so the conversion can be made from the front without tearing out drywall to access the interior plumbing. Most of the current valves use a lever handle, and I would like to know if I can install one of these in the existing valve body. Volume control is desirable but not essential. I don't have any identifying information on the existing valve, but it would have been contractor grade from 1992.
Asked by: wre288
Thank you for your question. Based on the information you have provided, it sounds like you have a 600 series faucet. We do have a renovation kit for that series. Delta Faucet model # RP54870 is available in Chrome, Venetian Bronze, and Stainless Steel. It will include everything but your tub spout, shower arm and flange, and your showerhead.

crystal ball set screw

I have a fifteen year old Delta shower body with push button diverter / its a bath tub installation. The crystal ball has broken. I am seeking a new crystal ball handle. I ordered two replacement knobs for the shower body, each supplier sent me a crystal ball with a straight set screw. The ball i seek to replace had a grey nylon insert which seated into the crystal ball. The set screw slid thru the ball ( and nylon) into the valve. The handles i ordered were different model balls and contained no nylon insert. Also the orientation of the handle wasn't quite the same as what i seek to replace. Can anyone tell me where i can get this old handle, screw and nylon? The

Hi Larry, Thank you for your question. If you must lift up on your knob to turn the faucet on, you will have a 600 series faucet. The acrylic knob handle for this model is the RP17451. This knob is available to order on Thanks, Dave

I am also searching for a showerhead to use along with this "converter." How does Brilliance Stainless match up with the regular Stainless finish?

Asked by: Pete
Hi Pete, Thank you for your question! Products marked Stainless Steel or Brilliance Stainless will have the same finish. This should also closely match brushed nickel finishes. Best regards, Jon

Renovation Kit - 600 series shower with "ball" handle

I'm wondering if there is a similar 600 series renovation kit that has the clear plastic ball handle,like this one (Knob - RP17451) rather than a chrome lever as is shown in this kit? Ideally if it came in Stainless/Brushed Stainless rather than chrome, that would be great! My valve is definitely a 600 series, but it's a standalone, walk-in shower; home was built in approx 1986.
Asked by: Dave
Hi Dave, Thank you for your question! The RP54870 600 series renovation kit only includes the lever handle. You would have to order the RP17451 knob handle and RP212 ball assembly separate. Best regards, Brandis

Do these kits come in brushed nickel Renovation Kit - 600 Series Tub & Shower

Asked by: RFSoup
Hi, RFSoup! Thank you for your question. The finish for the Delta RP54870SS renovation kit is in our Brilliance Stainless Steel. This will be the closest to the 'Brushed Nickel' that you are looking for as the Brilliance Stainless Steel is 'Brushed'. Best Regards, Rosanna
