How do I replace a Delta shower faucet with a new one?


should not be necessary to get behind the shower stall as there should be a hole big enough to remove /replace the facet insert
call a plumber in as it may be corroded in place and may require specialist tools for the job

I want to replace an old single handle builders no-name shower, about 15 years old with a gromhix 34436 unit. My shower is tile. What steps should be expected? Is this practical?


Usually a shower stall will boarder a wall where you can access the fixture by cutting a hole in a boaring wall to get at it. If it boarders a closet or someplace thats not conspicuos, there may already be an access hole. Once you have access to the old fixture, you can remove it and, as long as the new fixture is the same size or larger, it shouldn't be that much of a problem. You may have to make the hole in the tile larger but, you should be able to do that with a 90 deg. grinder. Usually most, if not all, shower valve(single) have pretty much the same configuration. If your pies look to be in good condition, you should be able to work with piecing in the new fixture. If you cannot access the fixture from the back sie, well, thats a different story and, alo of work in redoing tile you probably won't be able to match and, a little bit of drywall work but, if you only cut the hole a sbig a you need it,you use some sort of fired decorative tile to cover the repairs spot. It's up to you.

We are staying in a rented home with a spa bath. Attached to the spa bath is a hand held shower. The showerhead rests above the bath but the pipe coils somewhere between the tiles and the bath and can be...


The grout between tiles is just for filling the gaps. The tiles are glued to the wall, usually with "thin-set" mortar. Unless that mortar is in very poor condition it is unlikely that you would be able to remove that single tile without breaking it. The wall behind the tile might be water-resistant drywall (a poor quality situation) or it should be cement-board. I suppose it's possible that there is already a hole in the wall behind the tile, but the hole would be smaller than the tile, and assuming 4 inch (not large) tiles, this is a poor choice to gain access to the pipes. The usual access is through the wall from the other side. During initial construction, a removable access panel is sometimes provided (depending on local building codes and whims of the builder). If there is no access panel, and the other side of the wall is drywall, then cutting a generous hole, and fashioning a plywood panel (with trim around the edge to cover the gap between the drywall and the plywood) is a pretty standard and simple approach (depending on your skills). As an alternative and for more info, here's a link describing how to install a plastic snap-in access panel. Good luck! http://www.diylife.com/2008/06/23/plumbing-access-panel-installation/

For Danze Sheriton/Plymouth tub/shower faucet, I am finishing the wall with ceramic tile and have set plumbing so plastic guard face will be flush with finished tile. One drawing in the instructions shows...


Don't cover area where plastic guard should be. Make it flush. Some trim is designed to recess into the wall before it's flush. Screws, adapters, trim etc. all will need to be installed when tile is set. Make sure you have nipples extending out from shower head and spout area's as well. If you do this and think ahead a little, you will have fewer problems assembling trim.

I bought a maax shower base. i am going to intall a cement board on the wall, water proof it and then tile over it. The shower base has a flange that is 1/4'' thick. do i install the cement board on top of...


There are two ways that I would do it depending on the width of the ledge on top of shower base. If you have enouch room I would shim studs with strips of material thick enough to bring the surface out even with flange on shower base. Then I would put cement board(wonder board) on wall and over shower flange to set on top of shower base. Finish seams on wall board per manufacturers directions,Let seam filler dry then seal with thompsons water seal or equivalent sealer. Let that dry then tile on that grouting and sealing with quality caulk at joint between shower base and tile.
If ledge on shower base is not wide enough then I would place cement board directly to studs then use filler strips on face of shower base flange to bring two surfaces flush. Water seal let dry and tile again coming down over top of shower. Grout and caulk to finish. P.S. I would use a siliconized latex emulsifier to mix in with grout. It gives a better ware proof seal. Hope this helps you. Good luck and thank you.

How do you remove wall tiles


Follow following steps -

1.Decide where to remove the grout
2. Scrape the grout away with a utility knife
3.Try a rotary grinder instead.
4.Remove grout until the spacer lugs are visible.
5.Chisel tiles away from the wall.
6.Break the tile if necessary.


If the tiles are grouted, you will have to clear the grout away first. There are inexpensive tools designed specifically for grout removal. After removing the grout, use a small pry bar or a similar tool to pry the tiles away from the wall. Most likely, though, if the tiles were installed onto drywall, the drywall will be damaged during removal. Fortunately, drywall is relatively easy to replace. Once the drywall surface is ready, new tiles can be attached with tile adhesive or mastic. Regrout and seal the tile around the new tiles. *If the new tiles are natural stone they will be very porous and will need to be sealed and dry BEFORE installation.

How do you remove the handle from a classic delta single handle tub faucet? I don't see a way to take off the handle itself to replace the cartridge.


On most delta models you pop the cap in the center of the handle. Then there is a screw to remove the handle. If it is old the bonnet can be hard to remove. Be careful, as you don't want to damate the complete faucet behind the wall.

Start by turning the water off to the whole house. Open the tiled wall or if there is access behind the old valve open that wall instead. With a tubing cutter cut the hot and cold water lines as well as the shower riser. Remove any clips that are securing the valve to the wooden studs. Mount the new valve in the same area as the old. Make sure that the valve is not upside down arrows on the brass body will indicate flow direction for the tub spout. Connect the water supply lines to the new valve by means of soldering or mechanical joint. Connect the existing shower riser by means of soldering or mecnaical joint. Turn the water on and test for leaks.

I would like remove old vinyl shower wall and install a tile wall. but do i have to remove the drywall also? I'm keeping the shower base.


if the sheetrock is in good shape you should not have any problems. If you are worried about mold and mildew, you might want to change out the drywall with either green coat or yellow coat- these are mold and mildew resistant

How to Remove Shower Head


Once you've purchased your new shower head the first step in replacing the head is to make sure your shower faucets are firmly turned off and then remove the old shower head. If you look at the existing shower head, you'll notice flat spots on what's called a pipe nipple at the base of the shower head where the head screws into the goose-neck pipe that sticks out of the wall. * Take an adjustable wrench and tighten the wrench onto the base of the shower head flat spots. * Turning counter-clockwise, loosen and remove the old shower head. * Clean the threads on the goose-neck of any debris such as old pipe compound or Teflon tape.
