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

Just installed a delta model #B114900 in a new shower and the hot water does not get real hot. Before we replaced the old one it worked fine


Support Information

This link gets you to owners manual installation.
It wont let me copy diagram.
Step 7
You need to adjust the Rotational Limit Stop
The 1st position is default and allows the least amount of hot water into the mix. As you move it more clockwise it allows more hot water into the flow. If you move it all the way clockwise you have the greatest amount of hot water and run risk of scald.
Basically you have a faucet to help protect from scald if the handle should accidentally get rotated all the way to hot.

Delta Touch2O problems


YOU HAVE A COLD WATER RESTRICTION SOMEWHERE. THROW A DIFFERENT FAUCET ON THERE, AND SEE HOW THE FLOW IS. MY GUESS: STILL POOR....TRACE COLD LINES BACK UNTIL YOU FIND IT

Good afternoon, We have a 25yr old delta shower faucet and head. both work wonderful but the water is not all that hot- our new hotwater tank is set at 130 degrees. If i need to change the mix do i do it...


You don't change the setting on the faucet or behind the shower wall. You change the mix in the hot water heater itself. New hot water heaters are set at a relatively lower hot-water-setting for liability purposes. To achieve a hotter mix, take the cover plate off the hot water heater. You will see a dial setting that allows you to turn up the heat. Depending on what type of water heater you have, there might be two cover plates (lower and upper). If so, you'll need to adjust both of these.

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.

I installed a new Delta shower valve. When I turn the handle to mix the warm and hot water it vibrates like a jack hammer. Is the water presure to high or is the valve bad.


It is due to the water pressure. You may need to install
a pressure relief valve at your main cold water line, so
you can set the water pressure and prevent your valve from vibrating, that is it it is annoying you,.Otherwise,
just let it be..

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!
