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
get a quote first

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 instslled new delta single shower faucet ,the water is running for 5 to 10 sec even if the shower handle is in off position


Sounds like someone did not remove the plastic valve assembly before soldering the valve body to the copper piping.
That or the valve body needs cleaned out. It is common for debris to get knocked lose when doing installations on old plumbing.

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.

I have an old home with a one hand Temptrol shower diverter which no longer regulates H2O temp properly. I purchased a Delta Carlisle 174939-SS-I and need to know how best to install this unit. I am a 60...


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

Replace old vinyl/plastic type stand up shower - I want to convert over using tile. What do i use as a bottom pan i can tyle over?


You could make a base that would be framed up 2x4's and covered with a waterproofing membrane. lay concrete floor, sloped to drain (2piece) and tile. Or use a fibergass base that fits to studs. And then tile walls.

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.
