Cannot get the cap off the shower handle of a Danze fixture

How to you get the cap off the shower handle? It is a push in cap. There has to be a way to remove the cap in order to remove the rest of the fixture.

Did anyone have to drill the cap off and replace it with another one? Drilling it out seems to me the only way

Hot water pressure is weak. Shower head isn't clogged. Cold water pressure is good. How do I increase the hot water pressure?


Is the hot water pressure good at other fixtures in the house? I'm guessing your newer valves have a scolding adjustment that is set very low. Check the instructions that came with the valve assembly.

I have a single handle Danze shower. I can't turn on the water. The handle just turns all the way around.


sounds like handle is not engaged....pull handle...may need allen wrench...after handle is off see if you can turn water on with pliers...should go from right to left...if that works...install handle and tighten with allen wrench....handle should set from off area...see if handle is stripped out or not on proper...if need new handle...pick up at lowes or plumbing supply...good luck

I have Danze, single handle shower faucets that were professionally installed in 2005. One shower faucet has not hot water, just cold and when the handle is turned on all the way to hot, there is an itty...


Replace valve canister- no construction- just remove after taking time to shut off water- a few screws and the job takes 15 minutes. I take for granted you have good water hot/cold to the fixture. This fix will cure most temperature balance problems.
The single lever system is a EZ care system. Note the canister can malfunction faster when exposed to untreated hard water.

Want to increase water flow rate through Danze shower assembly


There is a flow regulator in the shower head. You have to remove the shower head and inside just down below the pipe threads, you will see the water saver. It can either be a white disk that can be screwed out or a black piece of plastic that just sits down in ther or a very small rubber washer. If it's the small rubber washer, you will need something pointy to remove it. I use a dental pic for them.

Danze shower fixture issue


If it is a single handle there should be an access hole to the under side of the handle that will allow access to a allen style set screw, loosen it and the handle can be removed.

Water leaking from tap when turned off


In order to remove the Danze handle from this particular model grasp the handle of the valve and then the body of the valve and turn the body counter clockwise in order to remove.

Hope this helps.

If you don't have a supply house near you that carries parts for the Danze products you can go to danze.com and order them there.
