    Delta makes a nice Roman Tub. The R2707 rough works with several trims. Below is the Delta Lahara T2738 trim in chrome. I like that you can tighten or snug up the faucet from above once the handles are pulled. It just takes a screwdriver on two screws that are visible from the top of the tub.

    This faucet had 1/2" copper running to it, and I used short lengths of 1/2" PEX for the final connect. The old faucet needed replacement, as the hot side was no longer working, and it took a long time to fill when it had been working. I think the Delta Lahara was a good style choice too.

    Thank goodness for access. I was able to get my shoulders below the tub on this one.

    Oh, and what did the old stuff look like?

    Maybe a little dated.

    Tiny little tubing for a Roman Tub Faucet here. And lav supplies. All of this was removed for the replacement above.
