Question about Delta Plumbing
I have Delta faucets in my shower - two separate ones for hot and cold that were installed in the mid 1980s. My shower is dripping now and I suspect I need new innards for the faucets, but don't know what part number to look for or even if its still available. In teh photo, they are the two clear roundish handles - the single lever handle is not connected to the water any longer. http://i228.photobucket.com/albums/ee57/debodun/shower_zpsb80bd2d3.jpg
If you can remove the cartridges, might be able to tell you if the parts for the cartridges are still available, take a picture of that and post it.

Testimonial: "All fixed. I called a plumber and he assessed the hardware. He had to go to a specialty plumbing supply that carries older hardware, but was able to get the parts. Took him a half an hour to get the handles off, but everything okay now. Thanks for your response, though."
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.
Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

You can try to rotate the first plastic ring to the left of center a few teeth, this will let the handle advance alittle more to the hot side.

Try draining the system and apply air pressure (min 30psi) to each faucet. Open other hot water faucets to allow pressure to vent. Next try draining and cleaning the hot water tank.
