You need to tighten retaining nut on the underside of sink. You will probably need someone to hold faucet steady while you tighten nut. Yom may be able to use channel lock pliersor adjustable wrench. They can be hard to get to as there is not much room. If you have to you can get a basin wrench at most hardware stores. Usually around $15.00. The head will turn from 90 degrees on one side to 90 degrees on other. To use turn head so that open end of jaws are pointing to your right if you are laying on your back under sink.Open jaws and put around retaing nut and turn counterclockwise. This will tighten jaws around nut and you should be able to tighten nut. If you need to you can apply penetrating fluid on threads and get it to tighten. Hope this helps. Thanks

I have a delta single handle tub fixture the shower diverter pops out all the time

Hi Jeff sorry about your problem. Just wanted to ask about what you mean pops out. When you try to get water to the shower head the spout "pops out" and water just goes back to the tub? If this is the case it sounds like your diverter on the spout has failed. I favor the Delta one that you have to pull the chromed plastic area where the water discharges instead of the one with the knob you have to pull up to get it to divert the water to the shower head.
These both are available at your local plumbing supply store not the big box store always but I have noticed them at the HD in Honolulu. I hope this helps if not a photo goes a long way. Dave.

Faucet leaking at tee where hot and cold connect to spout

The designs of the Kitchen Sink Faucet mainly exhibit differences in its handles and spouts. Differently curved spouts and handles diversify the range of products. Some have long spouts and some are with short ones. The spouting of water may also give different flow patterns with the external fixtures. The handles are mainly in single or double.

We have Delta brand tub/shower fixtures, the one handle kind. The problem is that water comes out of both the tub faucet and the shower head, even though the shower is not turned on. This happens every...

You need to replace the tub diverter/spout. There are two kinds, I hope you have the kind with
an allen head set screw on the bottom side of the spout near the shower wall. These are super
easy to replace ! Loosen the set screw, twist the spout a little and it should slide off. When installing
the new spout, smear some vaseline on the copper pipe sticking out, this will help seal the new O rings in the spout.

The other kind of spout has pipe threads in it. They can be a little more tricky. I got called to a
house one time. The plastic female threads on the spout cracked when the plumber installed it.
The water ran down the inside of the wall and did damage down stairs. The leak could not be seen
until the sheet rock down stairs fell down from being soaked. You need to put some pipe dope on the threads, then tighten the spout on by hand, so as not to scratch it with a pump pliers.

I hope this helps !

these are screwed on. you might need a wrench to remove if it is hard to turn. you will need to turn counter clockwise to remove it.

when installing the new one (same model) do not over tighten! do not use a wrench, using your hands only turn clockwise until it is snug and pointing straight down. a little teflon tape is recomended.

sometimes the old "nipple" will come out with the old spout, just remove it from the old spout and re-use on the new one. use a little silicone around the spout against the wall, on the top and sides only, do not go all the way around it. this will let any moisture that gets behind it to drain out.

I have a garden tub w/o a shower attached. However, the fixture in the tub is the Delta pull down diverter (dont know why they would put that in a tub w/o a shower). Anyway, the diverter was pulled down...

If it was me... I would replace that spout...
the spout either is threaded on or it has a set screw on the bottom at the back that you loosen and then pull the spout off by pulling straight away from the wall...
Check and see if the spout has the hole for the set screw...if not then twist it counter clockwise and it will turn off...
then repalce the spout with a new one with out the diverter...

I recently move into a condo that has a Delta single lever Series 1400 single lever bathtub fixture. The bathtub has a shower nozzle that looks like it has been used. I cannot find where there is a button,...

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.
