Question about Delta Plumbing

1 Answer

Need to know part number

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."

SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

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.

SOURCE: No hot water pressure on kohler bath / shower faucet

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.

I dont know if you really want to hear this but the faucet will have to be replumbed. The way this works is on the faucet you have 2 inputs (hot and cold) if they are not in there proper feed ports they will have to be removed and installed correctly. if they are installed using flex lines you can probably do it yourself but if its hard plumed (copper pipe) it will be more difficult as the pipes will have to be cut and moved.

Connecting shower faucet to water line. what are al lines for . This is a Delta faucet


You should only have two lines, one HOT and ONE cold, if your already using a delta, then that means whatever is already WELDED to inside the unit is DELTA as well. JUST KEEP IN MIND that if you intend to use something other than DELTA parts, you will NEED TO do welding work!! Just changed mine out and ran into the same issue as you.

Single-handle Glacier Bay shower faucet, hot/cold reversed


Hello. It sounds like your plumbing was installed wrong, with the hot and the cold supply lines reversed. If that is the case, those supply lines will have to be replumbed to make your faucet work properly. Often, if those lines are accessable, it is only a 20 minute job. Joe

Hi Shannon:

The problem is most likely the seats and springs. You should purchase Delta Part # RP4993. I found some for mine at Lowe's for around $4.00. O-rings are available there too for about $2.00, and you probably should go ahead and replace them as well, especially if they feel dry and brittle.

You have to remove the handle, then unscrew the brass ring (or bonnet) with a pipe wrench, then just pull the cartridge straight out. Separate the lower cartridge from the upper by twisting a quarter turn to the left. Once separated, remove the black rubber seats and springs and install the new.
