Question about Delta & Single Handle Shower Faucet

2 Answers

No hot water

I have a new Delta shower head that has a fixed shower head and then part of it can be removed and becomes a hand held. I need help because the water only gets lukewarm. I can't get the temp comtrol dial to move to hot. I suspect it didn't get installed correctly, but it's a holiday weekend and I can't reach the plumber... please advise. On faucet in off position it is at 3 o'clock only turns up to 12 o'clock position. I have no water temp control. I have a similar problem just instauled Delta shower head but doesn't become hand held. But water is only lukewarm. I don't know if it is in the shower head or faucet.

You have to take the handle off
there should be an insert that you can adjust by pulling out and turning

Check your shower head and see if it is plugged. Try a new one.

How do install delta shower


If you are looking to replace only the shower head, you'll need two plumber's wrenches, a cloth, and Teflon tape.

First and foremost, read the install instructions that come with the new shower head...

After you clearly understand what the instruction's say, shut of the water supply lines for the hot & cold water.

Take one of the wrenches and apply it to the neck of the water supply tube coming out of the shower wall (a.k.a. goose neck or supply nipple, or arm, depending upon the design). It'll have male threads (the threads are on the outside of the fitting). I would place a cloth of some sort around it before placing the wrench on it so you don't mar the finish of the water supply tube.

Place the second wrench on the shower head assembly (which has the internal, female threads). and unscrew it by turning the shower head assembly counter-clock-wise (to the left) while holding the water supply nipple with the other wrench.

You need to do this, so you don't snap or deform the water supply nipple coming out of the shower wall- and/or possibly causing leaky damage to the fittings behind the shower wall.

To replace the shower head, you reverse the removal process- the only difference is, you wrap Teflon tape around the male threads of the water supply nipple before spinning on the new shower head.

Somethings to be careful of, and I can't stress this enough, DO NOT cross thread the new shower head onto the water supply nipple. You should be able to screw it on the new shower head by hand- where it is hand tightened- then using the double-wrench method that you used to take off the shower head, turn the new shower head an additional half to three quarter turns with the wrench, clock-wise; and I mean gently.

Here's a nice short video on the subject, illustrating my instructions: http://youtu.be/fiv4Zq9v4co

Hi, We have a old 5-port diverter valve (Grohe 29 605) in our shower in which the outlets are connected thus: Hand held shower port connected to hand held shower Fixed head shower port connected to body...


yep replace the unit the plumbing will be ok for a new unit, with a setup lie that whoever installed it hopefully was smart to put shut off valves behind the wall or you will have to turn off h20o supply and replace and solder caps on the rest easier to change out to new

I just installed the valve new. I have a shoewe head and a hand held that feed from the unit. It was intended to 1) serve the shower heas alone, 2) serve the hand held unit alone, 3) put water to both...


Assuming that your two heads are fed from the typical curved wall mounted shower pipe, what you need is a diverter valve. Removed both heads till it's down to just that curved pipe. Get a diverter valve from a plumbing supply store. Tell the sales folks that you want to install a diverter valve so that in one position, the hand held receives water and in the other, it cuts the hand held and puts it to the reg. shower head instead. They should give you a "T" sort of fitting. The female threads of this screws into that curved shower pipe. Then you will find two male thread ends. These connect to both your shower heads. Finally there will be a push/pull knob that is operated to control which head gets the water.

Water trickles out of hand help head


the problem is probably not in the actual head but in the valve body where the diverter is attached. It is easy to google something like "how to change the washers on a faucet" and you will find step-by-step instructions on how to do so.
