Hi kwoccvc,

It sounds like you have got a bad cartridge. Rare but possible. When you flipped it and got opposite temperatures was the give away. As long as your volume was the same on both hot and cold, then the cartridge is bad>(

Please rate this response and good Luck, Phil

We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had our hot water heater replaced. Now it takes longer for hot water to get to the faucet. Could debris (calcium build up, etc.) from the replacement get in...


Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

Installed new delta leland 978 kitchen faucet. Water pressure from faucet is low. Cleaned screen and there was no change.Could there be a clog some where else in faucet system?


check the angle stop under sink as sometimes the washer gets lodged in the orifice to stop..make sure water is off to house before removing handle to stop...check the hose...then the stem and seat to faucet itself.

Our hot and cold water seem to be mixing. we had scalding hot water for a few days,then hot water tank died. put in a new one and now the water is warm for a minute then turns very cold.


When you filled the water heater did you get all the air out of lines and water flowing before you turned power onto heater. It sound's like the bottom element on the heater is not working. That is if it's the same throughout the house hot then get's cold.
Check the power to the lower element and thermostat.

Delta Kitchen Single Faucet 470 suddenly would not give water


Debris in the valve is a fairly common cause for stopping water flow in single lever valves. You can first check the aereator and remove any debris that may be there at the faucet itself. Then you can try to remove the ball at the control lever. You have to be careful and make sure that you do not drop any parts. Especially if this is a recent installation, you may find a large piece of something there.

Low water pressure ..i installed a western pride shower faucet and it has cartrige on the body assembly iwas wondering if this would stop the water flow


Did you install a new shower head as well? If you did, then there is a water saver device in the new head that restricts water. These can be removed easily. If not, then there could be stops that now days are installed on new faucets. They sit between the supplies and the faucet body. Make sure they are turned all the way on if you have them. Also, some faucets do not move water as feely as others so it depends on what type of faucet you have. It may be something you will have to live with.

Valve in Delta faucet closes as water warms up


Yes, you are on the right track, but Deltas use a fancier kit inside them. It is quite a bit pricier than an O ring, but will solve the problem. It is not hard to install at all.

Delta kitchen faucet mixed spray...diverter problem???


No a pull out sprayer problem is different.

First try this. Pull out the sprayer and remove from hose by turning nut that connects sprayer to hose. If you can get someone to help you it would be nice since the hose can go down into the faucet and might be trouble to retrieve. Look in the connection on the sprayer where the hose connects and look at the screen. If the screen is plugged or dirty clean and reinsert. If you can't clean it replace it. If this isn't working go to the next suggestion below.

In the spray head of the faucet there is a build up of deposits from use and or water hardness. Here is the link to the Delta site.

Delta Faucets

If you find you faucet model order a new spray head. Once these go bad they usually need replacing.

Hope this helps and please rate this!

Faucet/sprayer coordination


If you have a Delta faucet your diverter may need to be replaced. The diveter is located under the spout (see diagram)(this is not your faucet but works the same)

Here are the instructions:

  1. Turn off water to faucet.
  2. Remove handle.
  3. Remove top cap.
  4. Turning spout back and forth gently lift and remove.
  5. Remove and replace diverter.
Hope this helps and please remember to rate this!
