SOURCE: leakes around spout

You remove the handle after turning the water off the to faucet. Remove the retaining nut which is apart of the trim. The ball assymbly will pull right out and you will find the two little washers and springs below the ball. You can buy a rebuild kit with the new ball if you like but it is not necessary. When you do replace the washers, it might be necessary to tighen the tension ring that is on the retaining nut. Tighten it unit it doesn't leak around the ball stem.

The little wrench tightens the tension ring that fits on the inside of the retaining nut right under the handle. You fit the little "arms" in the notches.

SOURCE: I do not know how to remove the spout from a Delta

You shouldn't have to remove the ball to take the spout off. It simply slides onto the post. Simply rotate it back and forth while raising it up, it should slide off directly towards the ceiling.

Normally you just turn that ring, counter clockwise. If too hard to turn, I usually put a rag over it, to avoid scratching, and use a pair of channel lock pliers, and squeeze just hard enough not to slip.

If you are talking about the aerator at the end of the spout,take a pair of pliers and a rag put the rag on the aerator and turn counter clockwise(take care to make sure rag is covering all the area and that should help you get it off.If you plan on replaceing aerator which is about $6 just take the pliers and take it off.

Hard to turn spout side to side


Remove the spout and apply a thin coating of plumber's waterproof silicone lubricant to the O-rings on the spouts mounting post. If the spout is still difficult to turn, replace the O-rings. Here is the link to the delta waterfall parts breakdown.

Any tricks to lifting the spout off the base? I slid the collar up and removed the plastic retainer, but don't seem to be able to life the spout.


Run the hot water for a few minutes this will expand the spout and help loosen the seals. You may have to pull hard but it will come off. Use alittle silicone grease on the o-ring when reinstalling.
