Delta 134900 handle Water coming out faucet and shower both

We replaced our shower/tub control with a new Delta 134900. When we turn it on water is coming out both the shower head and the faucet at a pretty good rate. The shower head is probably 3 feet up from the valve, so it shouldn't be too close I would think. The old shower control never did this. Did we miss something in the installation? I have searched the internet for clues but haven't found anything I think applies. I would appreciate any input someone could give me.

When i hooked up a delta faucet for a handicap tub i had to put it on the right side of the wall so that the older guy could reach the handle to turn the water on and he wanted the shower head closer


Not usually, but there should be an inverter or other unit to activate the shower. Often it is in the tub outlet and blocks the tub outlet to force water up the shower pipes. If there is no such or if it is just not working you may need to run the piping up to a sufficient height and then back down to the shower head to create enough pressure resistance if it is as you say, requiring a specific height of pipe to get a specific back pressure. But there also needs to be a mechanism to force the water up the shower pipe. Look up Delta on the web and get a phone number as there will be someone at Delta that can fully advise you about this.

We have Delta brand tub/shower fixtures, the one handle kind. The problem is that water comes out of both the tub faucet and the shower head, even though the shower is not turned on. This happens every...


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 !

Shower diverter push handle is squirting water out


If you are handy, the best solution is to call delta and have them send you a new diverter. They will need the model of your faucet. The new diverter will come with instructions on the install process. As far as fixing it without the new diverter, I don't believe you will be able to.

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...

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!

Water sprays out the diverter


Remove hot/cold button in handle, remove screw/pull off handle. Remove the two screws in the wall plate/remove plate. Use a wrench to remove the diverter assembly. Get new diverter assy and reinstall eveything. You don't need to turn off the water.
