Depends on which model faucet you have...

some handles are removed by removing a screw in the top of the handle hidden under a small decoritive cap
some handles are removed be removing a set screw using an allen wrench in the side of the handle usually under a small rubber plug

Can't get both hot water running at the same time. Delta Shower faucet


  • The spool and sleeve, the part of the Scald-Guard pressure balance valve that blends the hot and cold water, is not working properly. This can is caused by mineral deposits that build up over time resulting from hard water. To fix this, follow the steps below based on your model.
  1. Shut off water supply.
  2. There are two types of valves. Choose one or the other below depending on your series.
  • 1300-1400 Series: Remove handle.
  • 1700-1800 Series: Remove temperature knob, cover and handle.
  1. Twist and pull sleeve to remove it.
  2. Unscrew brass bonnet nut.
  3. Remove cartridge.
  4. Soak cartridge in a 50/50 vinegar and water solution for 24 hours to remove any mineral deposits.
  • **NOTE** Unless both hot and cold water supplies are turned on, the pressure balance valve will allow only a dribble of water to flow through the valve.
  • I have put up a picture to make disassembling it just that much easier for you.

I cannot figure out why my hot water no longer gets hot. I unplugged my timer 3 years ago and never had a problem. Now, no hot water unless timer is on and circulating.


Best solution is to remove the circulation-system crossover located under sink and see if problem is solved.
After removing crossover piece, try hot water tap.
Another way to check if this is the problem: Turn off cold water shut-off located above water heater. No need to turn off power or gas to water heater. Now, no water should flow when you turn on hot water tap because hot is turned off.
Open hot water side of double handled faucet. If water still comes out the hot side, then crossover is the problem.

After removing Taco crossover, you can still have the problem if a single handled faucet has the same type of crossover issue.
Repeat test to see if water comes out of hot side when water to water heater is shut off.
If water still comes out of hot side, then put ear against each single handled faucet and see which one has sound of moving water. That will narrow down the suspects.

I have Danze, single handle shower faucets that were professionally installed in 2005. One shower faucet has not hot water, just cold and when the handle is turned on all the way to hot, there is an itty...


Replace valve canister- no construction- just remove after taking time to shut off water- a few screws and the job takes 15 minutes. I take for granted you have good water hot/cold to the fixture. This fix will cure most temperature balance problems.
The single lever system is a EZ care system. Note the canister can malfunction faster when exposed to untreated hard water.

When turning on the shower faucet there is no hot water.


Can you remove handle , behind handle there should be a dial to move to increase hot or cold supply.

Remember where you start and remove it and replace a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise, just put handle on try it and see if it changes and adjust accordingly.

Our shower knob will turn all the way to hot, but the water won't get hot. The rest of the house has hot water. Think something inside the knob is not turning over to hot. How would I fix this??

Not enough hot water, has to do with a shower valve


Hello, first if any water supply hot or cold is turned off, you will experience trickling as you mention. You must have both cold and hot in order to adjust the temperature on your valve. if you had a plumber intall this unit you should ask him to adjust it. Otherwise here is how:
Rotate the handle counterclockwise to stop and let water run till cold water is purged, check
temperature. Rotate handle to off, remove handle parts (see Disassembly in your manual) and temperature limit stop, rotate clockwise to decrease and counterclockwise to increase maximum hot water temperature, reinstall temperature limit stop and handle (TIP: Do not screw handle in until desired maximum temperature is achieved) Repeat steps until desired maximum
temperature is achieved

My kitchen faucet pulses


this could be something as simple as debris n your aerator

To see if this is the problem remove the silver collar(nut) at the end of your faucet spout by turning counterclockwis (plug the drain holes so nothing oges down the drain) If it is hard to turn put a soft cloth around it and grip with chanel lock pliars or vice grip be areful not to clamp too hard

once you remove the aerator you will see a plastic type of gear and a screen carefully remove thes and rinse with water (look for grains of sand or any obstructions)

before you re install the aerator turn the water on full blast and alternate from cold to hot then together

if this does not work you will need to se if the problem is in the mixing valve which requires removing the cartridge to remove the cartridge:

turn water off under sink(hot and cold)
look for an erasure side cap or cover located at the base of the fauet handle and remove with a sharp screwdriver

take a hex rench (you may need a fashlight) and remove the hex screw then take the handle off
take a channellok wrench and turn the cap nut (large washer type of nut) this will allow you to remove the cartridge
Remove the cartridge and inspet for debris
go under sink and trn water on slowly to flush any debris then turn water off
reinstall cartridge( it is usually keyed )
be sure to snug the nut down but not extremely tight

Reinstall handle and check faucet before you put the set screw in .

This should stop the pulsating if not replae the cartridge

GOOD LUCK!
