Question about Delta Plumbing
After replacing the cartridge the unit is leaking behind it like maybe the copper pipe what should I do?
If the copper pipe is indeed leaking, you'll probably need to open the wall to fix it. Sometimes you can open the wall in back of the tile, in the adjoining room. Make sure this is the issue before you start this process.

If you are using copper tubing, use a cutting tool and cut the tubing so it will be cut straight. Install a new compression nut, then the "O" ring. Tighten the nut securely. You should not have a leak.
If you are using copper pipe, you must clean the ends of each piece to be connected with fine sandpaper. (Approx. 1") If you are using a connection sleeve, sand inside it. Apply solder flux to pipe and sleeve. Use a torch and heat all around joint, then hold your torch on opposite side and touch your solder next to the joint. It will suck the solder in. If you use 1/2 inch of solder, that's enough. No need to over solder.
