SOURCE: Installed a new 88976 handle but still have a leak

replacing just the handle cannot fix the leak and common sense should tell you that.... try turning off the water to the diverter (thru access panel on opposit wall or main water valve for the home) and then replacing the stem or cartridge inside the diverter -- this is what controls water temp, pressure, and is responsible for any leaks you may have...

You might have to replace the tub spout, because the divirter is not closing all the way. A new one will stop water from getting by it.

SOURCE: how do i install a new cartdridge for a delta

Remove the shower control handle. If the cartridge is threaded there will be a nut on the top. Remove with a crescent wrench. If there is no nut then there will be a retaining clip and the cartridge will then pull straight out. Installation is the reverse procedure.

I installed your single lever Delta shower ( talbott 144960-ss ) and the tub spout only shut off maybe half of the water to the tub, when you pull the top up. I have look to find there is no way to take...


hiya:) unfortunately they are not repairable, not really, but fortunately they are relatively inexpensive.($10-$20 U.S.) and it sounds like this diverter is brand new so maybe you can bring it back (just the spout) and they will give you another. either way the problem will go away w/a different spout. the only other thing i can recommend is to remove the tub spout and carefully inspect it to make sure there isn't an obstruction (like plastic or some other form of packing material) which can be easily removed. i say this because it is pretty rare for a tub spout to be defective. usually the problem you described occurs over time due to calcium(hard water) build up or foreign matter. hope this helps but if you have any more questions just ask:)

There should be a dirverter on the tub spout. It will be either a knob to pull up or a ring to pull down on and hold untill the water comes out the shower head.

If there is no dirverter go buy a new tub spout with one.. The prior owners may have installed the wrong spout.

Water comes out both spout and showe head when temperqture control is adjusted


Something is blocking the flow thru the tub spout. Make sure the dirverter moves properly. It mat be stuck partialy closed.
If that does not work take the tub spout off and see if you still have the problem. If that fixes it get a new tub spout.

I have a Delta Tub/Spout Pull Down Diverter that has a pretty persistent drip. The HOT and COLD handles are turned off and seem to be as tight as they can be. After doing some research online I believe...


If your Delta RP17453 Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout stops dripping after 5 minutes, your ok. If it never stops dripping, you need to replace delta faucet cartridge(s) behind the handle(s). This is were the water turns on and off and stops the water flow to the tub spout.

Delta faucets are some of the easiest to repair, and parts are usually available at any hardware store or home center. If you have a two handle faucet, replace both delta seats and springs and stems. If you have a single handle Delta faucet, replace the entire cartridge.

You will have water coming out of the shower head when you have really good water pressure. There might be more water volume coming out through the valve then what the tub spout can handle and in turn sends the water up to your shower head. When you fill your tub try turning the water only half way on not at full pressure, does this keep the water from coming out of the shower head? Most likely your valve has a 3/4" supply line while your shower head and tub have only a 1/2" supply line. Sounds like you have more volume to the valve than what the tub spout can handle. You might consider one of two things: 1) you can put a water regulator on the main supply line going into the house to lower your pressure, or 2) change out the supply line to the tub spout, increasing it from 1/2" to 3/4". Let me know whats going on.

You need to replace the tub diverter/spout. There are two kinds, I hope you have the kind with
an allen head set screw on the bottom side of the spout near the shower wall. These are super
easy to replace ! Loosen the set screw, twist the spout a little and it should slide off. When installing
the new spout, smear some vaseline on the copper pipe sticking out, this will help seal the new O rings in the spout.

The other kind of spout has pipe threads in it. They can be a little more tricky. I got called to a
house one time. The plastic female threads on the spout cracked when the plumber installed it.
The water ran down the inside of the wall and did damage down stairs. The leak could not be seen
until the sheet rock down stairs fell down from being soaked. You need to put some pipe dope on the threads, then tighten the spout on by hand, so as not to scratch it with a pump pliers.

I hope this helps !

Delta T13090 faucet shower head working at the same time.


The only possible explaination is that the water is finding it easier to go up than down. Water is lazy, just like me. ;)

Use an allen key to remove the tub spout. It's underneath and awkward. Once the allen key is loose, the spout just slides off. Try running the water. This may solve your problem and all you'll need is a new tub spout. If not.....

Turn the water off to the house.

Use an allen key to remove the handle.

Use a phillips to remove the trim plate (2 screws). Cut the silicone around the trim if it's there (which, in a proper installation it shouldn't be, but...)

Unscrew the nut (usually chrome) holding the cartridge into the brass body of the valve. The cartridge pulls straight out. Check for restriction in the ports of the cartridge itself. Check for restriction in the line going down to the tub spout. If you can't find anything, replace the cartridge.

Reassemble & Enjoy!
