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.

Flip over bathroom plug in bath stuck & bath full :/


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  1. Remove the shower head from the pipe.
  2. Clean the arm threads and wrap them with plumbers' joint tape.
  3. Screw the head back on and hand-tighten it. Remove any excess compound or tape.
  4. Test and retighten as needed.
Repair a shower head that leaks at the swivel:
  1. Unscrew the shower-head body from the swivel-ball ring.
  2. Find the O-ring or a similar seal inside. Replace it and screw the shower head back into place.
  3. Turn off the water supply and open the faucet handle to relieve water pressure.
  4. Carefully loosen the coupling nuts at the shutoff valves and at the base of the faucet.
  5. Carefully remove the supply tubes.
  6. Remove the locknuts that hold the faucet to the sink and lift the faucet out.
  7. Clean the area where the old faucet sat.
  8. As needed, install the new spray hose and supply tubes, if any, through their holes in the sink.
  9. Set the rubber gasket that came with the faucet on the sink where it will be mounted. If no gasket is supplied, apply plumber's putty.
  10. Set the faucet into position and center it.
  11. From under the sink, attach the faucet locknuts to hold it to the sink.
  12. Reinstall the supply lines, then turn them on and test the faucet. Turn it on carefully because the line and faucet have air in them.

All hooked up dobble cked but water only trickles so ample supply


Make sure the hot water is turned back on. Pressure balancing valves won't work if both cold and hot water is not on. Pull shower head off and test to see how it flows out of the shower arm. If good, clear out shower head. Whenever water is turned off for a time, and then turned back on, restricting shower heads and aerators usually get clogged. In the future, always open up a tub spout before turning water back on. This releases the air and other debris most effectively before testing other fixtures in the house.

Just installed shower and faucet in bath tub when you turn the water on the water comes out of the faucet and shower head. When you pull the lever for just the shower the water cuts off at faucet and comes...


Verify the height from the shower valve to the Shower head, the instructions specify the correct distance if it is too short the pressure could be getting up to the shower head.

Perhaps the water pressure it too high at the valve not allowing all the water down the faucet outlet, there are set screws on the sides of the shower valve to adjust the water allowed in the mixing chamber.

Something is restricting the water flow to the faucet, creating enough pressure to send some of the ater supply up to the shower.

I hope some of these ideas help
