The cartridge inside is bad and needs to be replaced or at least cleaned in order to stop the water

Delta T2738 Deck Mount on Jacuzzi Tub. Hot Water side leaking.


With the detailed part number you have, I would just walk into stores like Home Depot or any plumbing store and they will give you the exact parts you need. They are not expensive and a lot of them are standard parts and come in kits.
Good luck.

I have a Delta Tub/Spout Pull Down Diverter that has a pretty persistent drip. The HOT and COLD handles are turned off and seem to be as tight as they can be. After doing some research online I believe...


If your Delta RP17453 Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout stops dripping after 5 minutes, your ok. If it never stops dripping, you need to replace delta faucet cartridge(s) behind the handle(s). This is were the water turns on and off and stops the water flow to the tub spout.

Delta faucets are some of the easiest to repair, and parts are usually available at any hardware store or home center. If you have a two handle faucet, replace both delta seats and springs and stems. If you have a single handle Delta faucet, replace the entire cartridge.

Wateris not hot enough, need to know how to adjust scauldgard on faucetto getmore hot water, and less cold.


Assuming that you have sufficient hot water, you need to adjust the Scald-Guard valve. It's usually quite easy to do. The intent is to limit the amount of hot water that can be fed to to shower head or tub spout. On the 1300/1400 series faucents there is a disk behind the faucet knob/lever called the rotational limit stop. Remove the knob/lever, either by popping the cover off the knob and removing the screw with a Philips head screw driver, or removing the handle with an allen wrench. Next adjust the rotational limit stop disk clockwise to increase the limit on hot water flow. Delta claims each tooth you click past clockwise will increase the maximum water temperature by 6 degrees F.

Delta has a great FAQ on their web site. As of Jan 30, 2011, this link is valid:
http://www.deltafaucet.com/customersupport/faq/Water+Temperature/

If the rotational limit stop disk is already turned to the maximum point (clockwise), then you may have a hot water flow problem (either with the cartridge or to or in the manifold). The cartridges require a little more know-how to replace. You'll need to shut off the main water valve prior to removing the old cartridge. There are a couple of places that detail how to replace and/or service the cartridges, including a short video on youtube. I can post more details on this if you find you need to replace the cartridge.

Just got the tub faucet fixed from leaking now the water will not get hot in the shower how do I fix this problem?


If its a balanced pressure shower then you most likely have installed the cartridge wrong. Remove the trim plates and rotate cartridge 90 degrees clockwise and re-istall trim plates

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.

I have a Delta Series 1400 faucet in the tub/shower. The handle turns left and right for Hot & cold, but I do not know how to adjust total volumne. Is the round know supposed to pull out? It does not...


hi roger,

Sorry Delta 1300 and 1400 series valves do not have a volume control. Kinda odd but that is how they are made.

Please rate this response and Good Luck, Phil
