Question about Delta & Single Handle Shower Faucet

1 Answer

I have a delta tub shower faucet with a pull-out diverter. The model is "Delex" by Delta as stamped on the cover plates. I have not had any luck finding a replacement diverter. Neither Delta U.S nor Delta Canada represetives are familiar with this type. The faucet has two handles spaced 8" apart with the diverter in the middle. Also, it appears the diverter is frozen into the rough-in and nothing for a socket to "grab" onto so removal of the diverter has been a problem. Removal of the hot and cold valves went well and they were easily replaced by the Delta RP1740 valve assemblies. Any advice on identifying a replacement part for the pull-out diverter and how to remove the old one would be most welcome.

Take the details to a plumber supply shop ( where the tradies get their parts ) and discuss the problem with them
it is very possible that there are other makes that will fit in the holes to replace the delta unit

Did you solder the valve in? If so you may have got it to hot. Or debris could have gotten in the valve. Turn the water off, remove the handle and cartridge. Check cartridge for damage or debris

SOURCE: replace delta single handle shower cylinder

Yes, I believe this unit uses a cartridge right? They do fit a little tight due to the small washers on the back side of the cartridge. If this is the one I'm thinking of, there are two leg like appendenges that come off the back and fit into small holes at the back of the manifold or what some call mixing valve housing.

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 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

Shower diverter push handle is squirting water out


If you are handy, the best solution is to call delta and have them send you a new diverter. They will need the model of your faucet. The new diverter will come with instructions on the install process. As far as fixing it without the new diverter, I don't believe you will be able to.

Delta T13090 faucet shower head working at the same time.


The only possible explaination is that the water is finding it easier to go up than down. Water is lazy, just like me. ;)

Use an allen key to remove the tub spout. It's underneath and awkward. Once the allen key is loose, the spout just slides off. Try running the water. This may solve your problem and all you'll need is a new tub spout. If not.....

Turn the water off to the house.

Use an allen key to remove the handle.

Use a phillips to remove the trim plate (2 screws). Cut the silicone around the trim if it's there (which, in a proper installation it shouldn't be, but...)

Unscrew the nut (usually chrome) holding the cartridge into the brass body of the valve. The cartridge pulls straight out. Check for restriction in the ports of the cartridge itself. Check for restriction in the line going down to the tub spout. If you can't find anything, replace the cartridge.

Reassemble & Enjoy!

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.
