Delta Foundations Roman Tub Trim, Model- BT2796

The Roman drainage system was probably the most important invention that has shaped the future of our societies. Of course, they knew what they were doing. They also had the best bathtub faucets, hence the name – Delta Foundations Roman Tub Trim.

Also, it is important to remember that the Romans were stylish, without cutting any corners when it came down to efficiency. This tells you all you need to know about the Roman Tub Trim. But let’s expand on that for a moment.


About the Delta Foundations Roman Tub Trim

We know mainly 3 things:

  • There is no excuse for cutting on quality, no matter the reason
  • The design is what transforms the trivial into a marvel
  • Innovation is the key to everything

This brings us to this outstanding piece and here is what makes it so great:

The  Breathtaking Design

Despite the fact of delivering an apparently rudimentary design, the truth is far from that. This is virtually a piece of art.

The traditional-looking design fits within any setting, whether it is classic or more modern, with the chrome finishing doing all the work, along with the smooth and sexy outline.

Incomparable Effectiveness

First of all, the BT2796 Roman Tub Trim has a7 11/16-Inch long, 7 5/16-Inch high spout, which is, in and of itself, a major plus.

Low spouts are mainly avoided, because of the short water arch and the fact that it impends the user’s movements. But that is not what I mean by “incomparable effectiveness”.

What that refers to is the overflow capacity, which goes between 1.5 gallons / minute and 3 gallons / minute, in a water system allowing for values of 45 PSI. This is more than anything you can experience with your regular every day faucet.

The Rich Finish

BT2796 Roman Tub Trim is enriched with the DIAMOND Seal Technology, featuring a texture that really catches the eye. This makes for a classy look that satisfies even the most pretentious tastes.


The Pros and Cons

In all senses, this should be a lifetime purchase, no questions about it. But before we draw the line and see what is the definitive conclusion, let’s focus on the users’s thought about it.


The high arch of the spout
