Shower trim kit for Delta 1500/1700
We are finishing a remodel our guest bathroom. The house was constructed in 1996 and the bathtub has a Delta Monitor single handle faucet with separate volume and temperature controls. The finish is shot and we want to replace it and in a stainless steel or brushed nickel finish. The cartridge needs replacing as well since it leaks a little from the faucet. The problem is we can't find anything even at our local plumbing supply. They tell me it is a model 1500 with a 1700 trim. Lowes has a kit from Danco, but it looks crummy and cheap and is not the correct handle. The cartridge has a hexagonal lug where the handle engages and all the new Delta stuff uses splines instead of the hexagonal lug. Does anyone have any idea where we can get just a trim kit to fulfill our wishes? Certainly that would be cheaper than getting a plumber to do this (I think there is enough room to pull and replace the valve through the tile hole behind the big trim plate without cutting a hole in the hallway wall to access from behind)???
1500 to 1700 conversion kit
it should be pretty easy to get the conversion
kit for the 1500 faucet....
if you just wanted the trim for a delta 1500 faucet
I still have those laying around....in chrome ..
your only problem is wanting to change it to brushed
SS or Nickle... that could be a big problem...
if you stuck with the common chrome its easy as pie..
