A couple of thoughts, one being is the GPM flow rate (gallons per minute). The higher the flow rate, the louder the sound of water moving through the diverter valve. Second thought is maybe the supply piping might not be securely fastened. Does the pipe attaching to the head move at all? Also try just using hot water and then cold. If one is loud and the other isn't, you may have found the issue.

How do install delta shower


If you are looking to replace only the shower head, you'll need two plumber's wrenches, a cloth, and Teflon tape.

First and foremost, read the install instructions that come with the new shower head...

After you clearly understand what the instruction's say, shut of the water supply lines for the hot & cold water.

Take one of the wrenches and apply it to the neck of the water supply tube coming out of the shower wall (a.k.a. goose neck or supply nipple, or arm, depending upon the design). It'll have male threads (the threads are on the outside of the fitting). I would place a cloth of some sort around it before placing the wrench on it so you don't mar the finish of the water supply tube.

Place the second wrench on the shower head assembly (which has the internal, female threads). and unscrew it by turning the shower head assembly counter-clock-wise (to the left) while holding the water supply nipple with the other wrench.

You need to do this, so you don't snap or deform the water supply nipple coming out of the shower wall- and/or possibly causing leaky damage to the fittings behind the shower wall.

To replace the shower head, you reverse the removal process- the only difference is, you wrap Teflon tape around the male threads of the water supply nipple before spinning on the new shower head.

Somethings to be careful of, and I can't stress this enough, DO NOT cross thread the new shower head onto the water supply nipple. You should be able to screw it on the new shower head by hand- where it is hand tightened- then using the double-wrench method that you used to take off the shower head, turn the new shower head an additional half to three quarter turns with the wrench, clock-wise; and I mean gently.

Here's a nice short video on the subject, illustrating my instructions: http://youtu.be/fiv4Zq9v4co

What to do if i can't stop the water flowing from the shower spout and there's little water pressure coming from the shower head and a hand held shower?


One rule I live by: more parts, more problems. Sounds to me that the plumbing/valves were not insalled properly. If you hired a profesional plumber, have them fix it. I am a licensed profesional plumber and I offer a 1 year warranty on all my work. If the contractor did the work and does not hold a plumbing license, that person is still responsible and may have to suffer legal consequenses.

There is no water coming out of the shower after insulation


To clarify your question, are saying that you just had a new water heater installed in your house and the shower head in the bathroom can't get water through it? If that's what you meant, the water restrictor in the shower head is plugged with sediment. This often happens during water main shut offs and then turned back on. It shocks the sediment on the inside pipe walls. The first places it affects are shower heads and faucet aerators. Remove the shower head and clear the clog or replace with a new shower head. If this is not what you meant to say, then rewrite your problem.

New shower valve installed but can only get cold water seems to be an issue with a small cartridge inside the control


I have been searching the Internet for solutions to my problem which is that I get no hot water from my LDR Tuscany Brass Anti-scald, Pressure Balance Single Handle Tub and Shower Valve. I've determined that my manual does not match my valve exactly but I've been able to extract the cartridge and look at the insides. This valve was never in active use since installation so there was no mineral build-up. But a couple of years ago, our city mistakenly turned off our water shut-off valve in the street while trying to find a leak. Rust and particulates came rushing through our water supply pipes and contaminated almost every faucet we have so I think something might have happened to this valve at that time. Does anyone know if those screws on each side of the center of the valve are truly just "stop valves" and might be clogged up throwing off the balancing mechanism?

Shower water pressure is dismal at best, girls cannot get soap out of hair, is there a way to adjust amount of water coming out of shower head, we have a delta monitor single valve assembly.


Yes, try changing the shower head and do not get one of those water saver heads...and even if you get a regular one take out the flow restrictor before installing it if it has one....it will be just inside the thread part and wil be a plastic or rubber piece with a small hole in it to slow down the water flow...

Leaking shower head


Check the spout pull knob . Debris can be keeping it from closing completely.

Danze control valves producing loud water hammer


It sounds like your flow diverter isn't closing properly. Try removing the flow restrictors from the shower nozzle and see if that helps.
