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.
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.

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
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.

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.
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?
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 deltafaucet.com.

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

We need the handle only from this kit in brushed nickel - how do we order that? If unavailable, how do we order in SS?
Thank you for your question. The handle assembly RP17443SS is not sold separately from the full Renovation Kit RP54870SS.

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.
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.

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