SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: The unit has a croosbar connecting the hot and cold water. How do you remove the crossbar to replace the faucet

Do we want to remove the faucet from the top of the sink?

First shut-off the water via the two valves under the sink. Then un-thread the hoses from the bottom of the sink. Sometimes it is possible to do with ordinary house tools but more than likely you will need to purchase a basin wrench for about $10. This wrench will allow you easy access to the bottom of the faucet.

Then, using the same wrench, un-thread the nut that is threaded on the same threads as the hose. This nut if probably pretty tight and will take some effort.

Replacing is the exact opposite except when replacing be sure to use plumbers putty on the bottom of the faucet as a means to keep water from running under the faucet base and ruining your cabinet.

SOURCE: Delta Kitchen Single Faucet 470 suddenly would not give water

Debris in the valve is a fairly common cause for stopping water flow in single lever valves. You can first check the aereator and remove any debris that may be there at the faucet itself. Then you can try to remove the ball at the control lever. You have to be careful and make sure that you do not drop any parts. Especially if this is a recent installation, you may find a large piece of something there.

SOURCE: We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had

Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

We have no hot water coming out of our bathtub faucet. We took it all apart and water is only coming our of the cold side of the pipe

there is probably a shutoff on the rough-in valve in the wall. Sometimes the seal in that comes apart and blocks the water. Get new stem for valve. Unscrew the nut, replace stem, tighten nut. Clean inside valve before u put new one in.

Having trouble finding replacement cartridge for three handle showe/tub faucet

I tried without luck finding a replacement cartridge for a dripping1990-vintage Delta bathroom 90 degree turn vanity faucet with ceramic seals.

So I disassembled it in hopes that it could be repaired - quite simple after pulling the spring clip on the stem and pushing the stem thru the bushing.

It was apparent that the poor seal was caused by carbonate (hard water) deposits on the parts. So I put a few inches of white vinegar in a juice glass and put all the parts in for about 3 hours. Bingo! The hard water deposits brushed off with a light brush. Applied some plumber's grease to the moving parts and reassembled. It's been leak-free for over 6 months now :-).

Note that the cartridge can be reassembled for either CW or CCW opening by picking which of 2 crossed slots in the plastic coupling that the web on the end of stem fits into; so the same cartridge parts can be used for either hot or cold sides.

Note: Don't soak the metal parts too long, lest some of the brass goes into solution; this happened when I let one cartridge soak for 12 hours.

Sure is cheaper & easier than replacing the whole fixture!

Cna you remove water line feeding hot side to make sure it has correct flow. It could have something blocking inside of water line. And check hot inlet side on faucet to make sure it is open and not blocked.

Remove line you can run water in a bucket to ensure that hot side water line has no blockage in it and have someone help you with turning water off and on for you.

Go to delta website, take a picture of faucet with your cell phone and send. They should be able to identify and send you the parts. Meanwhile you'll have to turn water on and off from the emergency shut off valve under the sink. If it looks like the picture, it's probably the rubber seat and spring. If you don't want to wait go to your local "hardware" store. There may be someone there to help you. Bring the stem or cartridge, along with the rubber seat and spring. Don't use cold water while stem is removed. Turn cold off as well to prevent a mishap.

Faucet and shower head leaking, it`s a delta product. It drops when turned off. It`s a delta faucet product.

Is it a single handle faucet set? If so it sounds like you need to replace the stem in the faucet itself. You can get to this with a screw driver and a pair of pliers. Turn off the water to the faucet (hot and cold) and remove the handle. Once you do this you will see a clip that hols the stem in place.Remove this clip and pull the stem out with the pliers and you can find a replacement at your local Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. Pay attention to the directions when reinstalling. there is a tab that determines the top side of the stem.

Low flow hot water in Delta Shower

If your water heater is old or has been recently replaced, it will slough off debris that will get caught in the hot water supply side of the faucet. You have to disassimble the faucet and use a dental pic to remove the debris from it. This is a real common occurance. You can also try to flush out that side by removing the parts and then slowly turning on the water without the parts inside. Be careful not to flood your bathroom when you do this. But usually you have to dig it out. I have spent as high as 3 hours digging the liner from the dip tube of a water heater out of a faucet.

Kitchen faucet won't turn all the way off

You need to replace the washer on the stem. It's a Delta so it's possible that you have the type where the washer is actually in the very bottom of the manifold instead of on the stem.
