Question about Delta Faucet Delta RP17453 Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout

1 Answer

I have a Delta shower assembly with a pull-down diverter. When I engage the diverter for the shower, half the water seems to make up to the shower and the other half is forced through the back of the spout.

One of 2 things is happening. Either the o-ring is shot, or you have a hairline fracture of the plastic around the brass adapter. The o-ring is a #18, but if there's a crack in the plastic you'll need to replace the spout.

Is there a button on the tub filler? How about the spout on the tub, does it lift up? If there is not a tub spout then it should be shower only, if it has a tub spout it has to have a lifter of some sort, the foto I found showed the little button lifter. Hope this helps.

Just installed a waterpic shower head, half the water comes out of faucet and half the shower head, any solutions?


If your tub spout has a knob that you lift to divert the water to the waterpic then replace it with a Delta service part #RP17453 pull down spout. It always sends 100% of the water to the shower head and will always snug tight to the wall.

Pull down shower diverted works, but allows bypass into tub


The diverter is supposed to leak a little bit, so it will disengage after you turn off the water. If the water is leaking out a little, that's normal. But if it is really leaking out you may need to replace the entire spout.

Water sprays out the diverter


Remove hot/cold button in handle, remove screw/pull off handle. Remove the two screws in the wall plate/remove plate. Use a wrench to remove the diverter assembly. Get new diverter assy and reinstall eveything. You don't need to turn off the water.

On the bottom of your tub faucet is a ringed part that is about a 1/2 wide. Turn the water on, grasp that firmly in your fingers, and pull it straight down. Your faucet should come on.

Delta diverted spout is stuck! Can't pull it down


You probably have lime deposits built up which won't allow you to pull it down anymore. Try spraying lime away on it and use an onld toothbrush and work it up in there. If this doesn't work, you can replace the spout with a generic one. The spout should just twist off. Sometimes they can be stubborn. Hopefully this helps.
