The Shower Valve is regulated to give only 2.2 gallons a minute. If you have the shower head off test how many seconds to get an approximiate gallon running in the middle hot/cold position. If longer than 30 seconds either the stem in the valve is clogged or the water lines to the valve are too small or kinked.

M delta 174939-ss-i shower has no pressure just a trickle of water comes out. I have full pressure at tub and sink in bathroom, just not in shower which a stand alone shower.


Hello Mark
is the water still coming out the bottom when you pull up the lever to make the shower come on ? if it is then the tub valve is bad . if little or no water come out of the bottom then the head is going to be clogged and you have have buildup inside the filter /screen which could be located in the end of the hose at the head or inside the head unit itself. .

Can't get both hot water running at the same time. Delta Shower faucet


  • The spool and sleeve, the part of the Scald-Guard pressure balance valve that blends the hot and cold water, is not working properly. This can is caused by mineral deposits that build up over time resulting from hard water. To fix this, follow the steps below based on your model.
  1. Shut off water supply.
  2. There are two types of valves. Choose one or the other below depending on your series.
  • 1300-1400 Series: Remove handle.
  • 1700-1800 Series: Remove temperature knob, cover and handle.
  1. Twist and pull sleeve to remove it.
  2. Unscrew brass bonnet nut.
  3. Remove cartridge.
  4. Soak cartridge in a 50/50 vinegar and water solution for 24 hours to remove any mineral deposits.
  • **NOTE** Unless both hot and cold water supplies are turned on, the pressure balance valve will allow only a dribble of water to flow through the valve.
  • I have put up a picture to make disassembling it just that much easier for you.

Low water pressure from shower head with the shower head removed


If you have good pressure at the water faucet close to the shower and low at the shower then the shower valve needs rebuilt. If you have low pressure at all then start going down the line toward the water service coming into the house looking for where the low pressure starts in the distribution system and you should be able to isolate the problem.

Low shower head flow from Delta R1824 shower


Try exchanging the Delta head with one of the other shower heads you are happy with if you haven't already done so. No change in the flow means it's not in the head, and change means it is.

If it is in the head, since you are on a well and not a municiple water supply, you might consider removing the factory install flow controll device located just below the threaded area that mounts to the shower arm. These inserts can be a real bugger on some heads and each one is a little different than the last. The trusty nail often works well.

Your body sprays, I believe, are factory fixed at something like 2.2 gpm and non adjustable.

Also consider for a moment a garden hose with trigger spray head on it. When you squeeze the trigger the water will shoot out a certain maximum distance. If you were to take an ice pick and poke a hole in the hose, that maximum distance will be slightly reduced. The more holes in the hose the less the maximim distance. Correspondingly, the more holes you poke the less distance each hole will squirt because you have the same pressure and volume of water but more exit points.

A monitor has a flow rate of about 6 gpm at 85 psi which is pretty average for shower valves. If your other showers have only one exit point(i.e. one head) and the R1824 has 3 with the same pressure and volume, the garden hose illustration can also explain the volume change as well.

How do you remove cartridge from 1400 series delta shower valve


Take off the handle and the cover piece. There is a large nut holding the cartridge in. Be careful taking it off so you do not twist the cartridge socket off the rest of the valve.

Delta Series 1400 shower faucet, no or very little water out of the cold side of the faucet. Plenty of hot water. What can I do to fix this?


Remove the handle by opening the little red/blue cap. Use a hex key to remove the handle. Remove the tope ring holding in the cartridge in. Take out the cartridge and you will most likely see particles blocking it. make sure you use a little valve lube or vasline on the seals before you put it back in so you will have smooth operation. If that doesnt cure it just replace the cartridge at lowes or home depot and bring the old one.
