Question about Delta & Single Handle Shower Faucet
If your showre head has an external adjustment (usually on the face of the head) make sure that it is opened. Shower saver type valves have a push button on the pipe from the wall to the showerhead, usually close to or are a part of the showerhead. Make sure that it is opened, if you have one. Once done, remove the shower head and turn the water on. If you get water, look into the shower head. Most come with a water restrictor and it can come out of position and block the passage of water. The restrictors can vary in appearance, but usually they consist of a rubber washer and plastic disc, and are in the back of the showerhead where it unscrews from the piping from the wall. If you can get water without the shower head on, but no water through the showerhead, you can take it apart and look for restrictions or just replace it. If you cannot get water after all that, the problem is in your faucet or piping. Most Delta single handled faucets that I'm familiar with have a spring and cup washer valving arrangement. Those equipped with scald gard are somewhat more difficult to work on. Parts are available from H/Depot, Lowe's and similar. Hopefully the problem is in the showerhead proper, and not in the valve.
Best 'o luck, --W/D--
