Question about Delta & Single Handle Shower Faucet

1 Answer

Delta shower faucet loses pressure when turned all the way on (hot water). What could cause this? When it first happened yesterday, a few tiny pieces of black plastic/rubber fell out of the bathtub spout. It happened when I pulled the knob up on the spout to divert the water to the shower.

Turn off the water to the home. You need tthe stem beneath the handle. Remove the handle after locating the set screw, remove the cylindrical beauty cover, and unthread the retaining nut to access the valve stem. Take it to a plumbing supply house or home store to make certain of the match.

After changing my Delta shower cartridge i hear a whining noise when i run hot water in the shower. If I also turn on hot water in the bathroom sink (at same time) I get a banging noise from the pipes. ...


the banging noise is called water hammer and there are devices that can be added to your water lines to absorb the shock.

As for the noise, when you had the old cart out, did you flush out the faucet by turning in the water for a few seconds after removing the old one? This is a four hand job, one to control the water gushing out of the faucet and the other to conrol the shutoffs.
check seat and spring for correct assembly, the whine is caused by water pressure and flow obstruction.

It is more that likely the valve in the stem of your fixture, I'm assuming this is a single handle faucet. If you can replace the valve, you will cure your problem. I am giving you a link to how to adjust the hot water temp.

Check the water supply lines to the shower at the faucet handles. If the fitting for the hot water line connected to the handle is loose, it can twist and kink off the water supply further down the line when you turn the faucet handle. I'm not exactly sure how this could be relevant otherwise, but under normal design circumstances this type of scenario with your shower wouldn't matter for other faucets.

We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had our hot water heater replaced. Now it takes longer for hot water to get to the faucet. Could debris (calcium build up, etc.) from the replacement get in...


Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

Pulsating water and poor hot water pressure


Based on your description it sounds like the pressure balancing valve could be gunked up with particulate from your well or just worn out. If your water is not filtered to that shower I would lean more towards particulate. Try to remove the cartridge and take it to a plumbing parts store for a match-up since Delta makes several cartridges and you want to get it right the first time.

Water is not very hot.


First try adjusting the pressure balancing gear located right behind the handle. If you still do not have hot water I suggest to replace the cartridge.
