Replacement acrylic knob
I have a shower with this ball assembly, but the knob broke and I need a replacement. The knob is pushed down to turn off, up to turn on and left/right for hot/cold. Where can I replace it...or if it's not available, what do I need to do?
Thank you for your question. Based on your description you have a 600 series model, which would take the RP17451 knob handle. The knob handle will fit onto an RP212 ball assembly.

Are there replacement lever handles for the RP70 ball assembly style shower valve?
If so, can you tell me a replacement part number that would work?
Hi Absco, Thank you for your feedback!
The 600 series you described has been discontinued. Currently we carry just the RP17443 lever for the 600 series.

My delta shower single handle faucet is dripping, what causes this?
Not sure of model # but has a part # 70 ball stem
I was able to use the original ball. In the rebuild kit, AT FIRST I tried the short springs, and Short washers.
This Is What happened to me, drip drip drip.
I used the short springs from the kit. And the TALL WASHERS. !
Problem solved, it has been 2 weeks and NO leaks.

I have the single handle shower faucet with ball control. Can I change this system to the one that use cartrige?
Hi Pam, Thank you for your question!
By your description it sounds like you have a 600 series. We only manufacture a renovation kit RP54870 for your unit. The kit come in Chrome, Brilliance Stainless Steel or Venetian Bronze. There is no cartridge or cartridge trim kit that would fit into your valve body. You would have to replace the valve and plumbing in your wall to switch.
Best regards, Brandis

Entire cartridge or just the ball valve?
The instructions that came with the Cicero kitchen faucet (Model 468-SD-DST) indicate that to fix a leak from the faucet I need to replace the valve cartridge (part # 3 in the diagram). This site says to replace only the ball valve. Which is correct?
Thank you for your question! The 468-SD-DST (manufactured after September 2008) will take the RP50587 cartridge assembly.
The 468-SD (non-DST) uses an RP70 ball. However, the RP4993 seats and springs and the RP61 cam assembly will resolve most leaks.

Hello, I have question about delta tub faucets
We here at the hotel have delta 600 series tub faucets I believe installed around 1990. They have a acrylic crystal ball. If i want to the change from acrylic handle to a single metal lever handle(RP2393), Would I be able to use the RP70 Ball for the metal lever RP2393 ? The RP70 ball fits in the metal lever. The original ball that is in the acrylic crystal handle has a different type of ball. Can I try using the RP70 ball with the Single Metal lever RP2393 in my current faucet? The conversion ball is very expensive to put in 70 rooms, so I wanted to see if there was a way around this by using RP70 ball.
Hi David, Thank you for your question. You cannot transition from the acrylic knob handle to the lever handle on a 600 series faucet by using the RP70 ball assembly. The RP20111 conversion ball would have to be used.

I have a Saxony Single Handle Pull-out Kitchen Faucet w/soap dispenser Model 473-RBSD.
The handle comes completely off from the ball assembly, was it made that way or is it broken. The faucet also leaks water onto the counter top and drips quite a bit. I read another users answer concerning the leaking and drips, but I want to know if the handle should come completely off the faucet??
Hi Connie, Thank you for your question. The handle on the 473-RBSD is held on by a set screw that should meet the flat portion on the stem of the ball ssembly. When installed correctly the handle should not be coming off. Replacing the RP4993 seats and springs and the RP32520 o-rings on your faucet should help stop the leaks on your faucet. Here is a link to the parts diagram for your model to help with the repair.
