    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.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I definitely see what you mean Terry except I cant mount underneath as there is a 2x4 underneath the deck. I looked at the instructions and scratched my head a few times until I got to the "thick tile installation" part. If you look at it calls for the rough in to be mounted on top. Considering there is 1 inch of granite I would consider this thick tile. The deck is 3/4 plywood. It's just counter sunk into the deck. I was hoping this would work as only have 1 shot at it I want to be sure. It could be a very expensive redo. Thoughts?
