Faucet & Shower Handles
Single-handle lavatory and tub/shower models can be converted from a clear or smoked knob handle to a lever handle. However, the "action" of a lever handle differs from a knob handle so you also need a different ball valve (RP20111) in your faucet for the lever handle to operate properly.
A single-handle faucet converted from knob handle to lever handle will operate slightly differently from an "original equipped" lever model.
Yes. Delta® two-handle kitchen, lavatory and tub/shower models can be fitted with a wide variety of handle styles to suit your tastes. Changing handles is simple and takes less than five minutes.
If you are changing from lever handles to knob or porcelain cross handles, you will need to re-orient the right (cold) handle stem stop so the stem stop faces inward.
If you are changing from knob or porcelain cross handles to lever handles, you will need to re-orient the right (cold) handle stem stop so the stem stop faces outward (both left and right handle stem stops should orient to the right).
Delta faucets are designed to accommodate the majority of Delta handles. In most cases handle styles are available in different sizes depending on the application of the faucet. For example, tub/shower handles tend to be larger than lavatory handles.
