Hi Robert,

I have searched for your model and there are many - including many, many more that are now discontinued. The sort answer is if the manufacturer specifies that the valve no be located more than 18" higher than the tub spout, going 40" would be too far. There is a reason for this limitation, but it's not plainly available with the info you've provided - that is not to say there isn't a very good reason for this limit however. Your best bet is to contact Delta directly via choices provided in the linked page below. Good luck!

I believe they are saying valves no more than 18" apart or valve to tub spout. But not the Shower head outlet, since the shower is part of the tub spout system? But you can verify at the store you purchased from, or the MFG customer service. It would help MFG understand their instructions are a bit ambiguous.

Why is there Rust from tub spout and shower head


When you turn off faucets other than your tub or shower you will note that the water stops fairly abruptly. Not so with a shower head or tub spout. Some water always dribbles out even after you have turned it off. This small amount of water then evaporates leaving behind the iron that was dissolved in your water. This also happens if any faucet has a slow drip. There are products that will easily remove the rust stains. CLR, Iron Out, or Iron Ike are all good products that will remove the stain. Available at hardware stores, plumbing supply houses, and, ugh, Home Depot or Lowes. Please support your local business owners by purchasing there.

I just installed a series 13/14 single valve tub/shower faucet. When I try to turn on just the tub spout, the shower comes on as well. What could be causing this?


most likely problem is to much pressure in water lines if u have shut off valves on to feed lines turn them down a little will decrease pressure to the valve other problem the spout {tub} diverted is partially engaged, loose,debris or defective if u can reremove the spout and observe the valve for proper function

    Price Pfister Shower--No water to shower


    Does the tub spout water flow stop when the shower knob is pulled?

    Was the systems pipping flushed before the shower head was installed?

    It may be clogged, remove the shower head and then attempt to operate. If it is clogged you will see debris trapped in the screen at its connection point. The shower head can be disassembled - cleaned - reassembled

    Is the shower head an adjustable type, that may be in the off position?

    Good luck

    Shower/spout


    The valve is installed upside down and needs to be reversed. There is a diverter in the valve that gives the spout priority. When the valve is upside down it gives the shower head priority. Thats why it runs without the diverter being activated. You will need to get in the wall from one side or the other. Cut the valve out and either flip the faucet Or change the direction of the diverter depending on the style of valve.

    Good Luck, Phil
