Sounds like you have lost pressure on one side of the valve. ( either hot or cold ) Or the cartridge has gone bad. If you have hard water if probably is the cartridge. There are a couple of different series for your style of faucet.

The reason why you only get a few drops is the cartridge is pressure balancing. It is a safety device which prevents scalding if one side of the supply shuts down.

We have two showers with Delta single lever faucets. Both have given us problems. Both allow little or NO hot water through the shower head. What can we do?


It sounds like there's a blockage in the valve. It needs to be removed to see if water is blocked and confirm you have hot flowing freely.

Shower water pressure is dismal at best, girls cannot get soap out of hair, is there a way to adjust amount of water coming out of shower head, we have a delta monitor single valve assembly.


Yes, try changing the shower head and do not get one of those water saver heads...and even if you get a regular one take out the flow restrictor before installing it if it has one....it will be just inside the thread part and wil be a plastic or rubber piece with a small hole in it to slow down the water flow...
