Faucet funtions effortlessly, easy to install, with simple directions Easy installation process. Directions were self explanatory for most part, had to go online to get clear understanding of how to increase water temperature, directions didn't explain sliding the o ring to be able to move adjustment. Once that was figured out system runs smoothly and efficiently. May 30, 2013

New fiberglass one piece shower install in new construction using B112900

I'm installing a one piece fiberglass shower stall in a new construction with the the B112900 unit. There will be no tiling on the shower unit. I will have access to the back of the shower through the stud wall.
I saw a previous question about the size of hole needed to be drilled for the valve and handle portion through the thin fiberglass wall. A Delta expert answered the question by replying that a 6" diameter hole needed to be drilled for it.
Do you have a link to a video or a picture of what the unit looks like installed (without the Escutcheon on it) in a scenario like this? I am concerned that I am not understanding this installation advice correctly and that this "6 inch diameter hole is too big.
Is the WHOLE black plastic circular piece that came with the unit just packaging\a guide to protect the valve and should be discarded after installation? Or is it somehow used for permanent mounting?

One more question:
Are SharkBite fittings (for Pex use) allowed to be attached from the valve body?

Thank you in advance.

I need an extension for the shower handle, the valve is located too far back in the wall. Thick tiles were installed.

thick tiles are preventing the parts from mounting right. the plate and neck stick out farther than the nut the handle grips on to. is there an extender? i could only find the RP25592 Stem Extender, but i dont think that is right. PLEASE HELP ME!

How do I increase the water temperature & Flow Rate of the new B112900 shower set I just had installed?

I can not find step by step instructions on how to adjust the handle stop, amount of hot water mixed into flow and how to increase the flow rate as the shower head will not even reach the wall 3 feet away. There is no problem with water flow rate on the sink or 2nd bathroom fixtures.

Answer: 
Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. To increase the water temperature on your model B112900 shower faucet you will want to adjust the rotational limit stop on the cartridge. Step 7 on page 7 of the attached manual will show you how to make this adjustment.
http://www.deltafaucet.com/customer...
The model B112900 comes with a Watersense labeled showerhead rated at 2.0 gallons per minute. Check to make sure that no debris is blocking the showerhead or cartridge that may have come loose during installation.

Water from both shower and tub faucet

Just had the shower and faucet kit installed in bath remodel by a plumber. Now water is coming out from tub faucet and shower head when water is turned on. When tub stop is pulled then it works correctly with water coming only from shower head. What could be wrong? Also, the handle to turn water on was installed so a clockwise direction turns water on but I have a 2nd bathroom with same Delta faucet where the handle is turned counter-clockwise. Seems something was installed backwards, what needs to be changed?

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Laly003, Thank you for your question. Most likely, you are experiencing "shower-rise" where the water can’t get out of the spout as fast as it flows through the valve. This causes the water to back up and come out the shower head. There can be one of several reasons for this:

The valve could be upside down
The length from the valve to the tub spout is outside of the 8" to 18" rule
There is more than one 90-degree angle
Something other than copper or galvanized pipe was used going to the spout
The most common reason is that there is something restricting the water flow to the spout, e.g. solder or something lodged in the pipe. Something is impeding the flow of water to the spout and causing it to back up and go out the shower head. If this is the cause of shower-rise it is possible to remove the blockage by removing the tub spout; then, feeding a plumber’s snake or a speedometer cable up through the tub drop. The act of feeding it causes it to twirl and loosen the blockage. Be sure to flush the valve before reinstalling the tub spout. Be sure to check the tub spout itself for blockage.
If none of these help, you may need to call a plumber. After the shower has been installed and the wall has been closed, there is little that can be done to remedy this situation yourself.

The handle on the model B112900 should turn on by moving the handle in a counter-clockwise direction. The cartridge on your faucet is most likely installed upside down. You will want to remove the cartridge rotate it 180 degrees and reinstall.
Thanks,
Dave

how to remove the cartridge for winter

I have installed this is a cottage that is not heated in the winter. I understand I have to remove the cartridge so it won't freeze but the instructions do not tell or show how to remove the cartridge. They say a replacement cartridge has the instructions on the back of the package but I just want to remove the already installed cartridge.

Answer: 
Hi Pete, Thank you for your question. To remove the cartridge from the model B112900 you will need to first remove the handle by loosening the set screw on the side of the handle. Next pull off the trim sleeve. Remove the 2 screws holding on the round escutcheon and remove the piece. Unscrew the bonnet nut and the cartridge will be able to be removed. I have attached a link to the parts breakdown for the model B112900 to help with your repair.

Brand new installation of Delta shower faucet B112900

My contractor broke through the tiles, replaced the shower valve, etc. added new wall board and tiled the wall again. When I went to use the shower, the hot and cold are now backward...and they never were in the past. Is there a way to fix this without breaking into wall again? Contractor does not claim responsibility for this issue and blames the Delta valve...which I purchased from HomeDepot brand new and the box was not opened until contractor opened it. HELP!!!

Answer: 
Hi Becky, Thank you for your question. It sounds like the cartridge was installed upside down. To get the hot and cold temperatures working properly in your model B112900 you will want to remove the catridge from the valve, rotate it 180 degrees and reinstall. The raised portion of the cartridge that stops the motion of the handle should be on the hot water side. I have attached a link to the manual below that covers the cartridge installation..
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Robin, Thank you for your question. The only alternative to the trim for the model B112900 that fits your existing rough in valve is the B114900-SS. The B112900 does not use our multi-choice universal rough that would allow you to switch out your current trim to the rest of the Delta tub/shower faucet trims.

I have installed a B112900 and the hot water comes out luke warm.

I read the answer to Kendra's question in your Q&A and printed off the manual. The rotational limit stop on my unit has two arms on it so it only rotates 90 degrees. The picture of this item on page six of your manual has only one arm. How do I get the correct part?

Answer: 
Hi Don, Thank you for your question. Based on your description you do have the proper valve cartridge RP70538 that goes with your model B112900. The picture in the manual only shows the one arm that is needed for the adjustment. The top arm of the two is the one moved to make the adjustment, it will only travel approximately 90 degrees.

Adjust rotational temperature stop *after* installation.

Hello Delta!

First, I know that the "instructions" for this adjustment are on page 6. The problem is, those directions are not very helpful, especially after the faucet has been installed.

I had a contractor install my Delta faucet, and now I need to adjust the temperature limit. With the handle installed, I can't tell if I can remove the cover by simply sliding it off, or if I need to remove the entire plate. I also can't tell if I can remove the nut at the end that the handle affixes to so that I can actually remove the o-ring and then adjust the temperature limit. I have read through all the directions and these procedures are still not clear.

In the attached photo, you can see the installed handle, with the lever removed. I am wondering how to remove the sleeve (1) or if I can remove the nut (2) so that I can actually get to the O-ring and the control gear (3 & 4).

Thanks for the help!

Hi Kendra, Thank you for your question. The trim sleeve(1) just slides off, there are no threads. Remove the screw in the end of the handle adapter(2). This will allow you to remove that piece and have access to the o-ring and control gear to make your adjustment.
