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

Have a two handle Sterling shower stall. The shower head is leaking from the cold water inlet. Believe need a replacement stem. Have changed the O ring but has not stopped the leaking. Is there any...


The part # you supplied is for a shower door and has no bearing to your question. There is no relationship. However, I can say there is no adjustment for any two handle shower stem or even single handle stem. Very rarely will just replacing an "O" ring stop a drip unless it it from through the stem itself and comes out under the handle. When in doubt replace the whole stem...shortcuts will only exasperate the problem. There are no shortcuts in plumbing.

Leaky single lever bath tub faucet


Faucet is leaking due to seats bad.

1- Turn water off first and remove handle and remove collar that holds stem and remove it..

2- in valve there are seats that looks like caps they may be in valve body or the end of stem itself.

3- Remove them and the springs and replace them this will take care of the leaking problem.

I changed the stem on hot water because shower leaking- now no hot water from shower head when water turned back on- wont pass stem and some spreay from where stem is?


I am not sure what brand of shower valve you have but it sounds like you lost a peice of rubber or plastic in the valve and it has either lodged in the diverter or somwhere from the valve to the shower head. Is it posible that you got the wrong stem or switched stems or maybe it was put in backwards. Wish i could narrow it down for you,Need better info.

My mixet bathtub faucet only produces hot water


single lever facets do this all the time

flip the facet leverover
ie remove lever and spin the center gut 180 degrees re install the lever and wala you have hot and cold water
if not check your supplu lines dont have a kink in them or they are not pluged
remove hot supply line and open feed valve over a bucket no water ?
turn on the other shut off valve
remove cold line over bucket open valve you have water then you have a bad faucet
return it then install a glacier bay faucet they are cheep and they work well

Bath tube plumbing is making vibrating sound then shutting off


Replace the cartridge even if its new. The vibrating is from the internal workings of the stem. It also effects the volume of water.


good luck, Phil
