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
Cheap, entry level product Not too happy with my contractor. Paid a lot of money for remod and he cut corners. This valve isn't adjustable, and only gets very warm, never hot. Buy better! December 2, 2014

Replace cartridge from B112900 with RP46074 cartridge?

I need to replace the cartridge in my B112900, dated 10/17/13. The 'correct' replacement cartridge is shown to be RP70538. However, I did not get good performance (difficult to control water temperature, leaking) from this cartridge and would much rather replace it with the RP46074 from the 13/14 series. Is the RP46074 cartridge compatible with the valve that is included with the B112900? I've seen contradictory information about the B112900 valve; is it, or is in not a R10000 universal valve? Lastly, I assume that if I can substitute the RP46074 cartridge, I will also be able to continue using the B112900 Foundations Single Handle trim.

Answer: 
Hi SD, Thank you for your question. The RP46074 cartridge is not compatible with the B112900 faucet. The valve in the B112900 is not the R10000 multichoice universal rough. The only cartridge option is the RP70538.
Thanks,
Dave

no water flows. on the back of the bracket it was stamped "up" which I have confirmed I installed this way. I did notice, by removing the valve cartridge, that where your diagram shows the check valve assembly "left to right" mine is "top to bottom", which aligns with the valve body as installed.
Please advise

Answer: 
Hi JD, We are sorry that you are experiencing a problem with your model B112900 faucet. Unfortunately based on your photograph the valve is not oriented correctly. The two larger holes should be lined up horizontally, not vertically. The smaller hole will be down towards the tub spout. Reorienting the valve body should resolve your issue.
Thanks,
Dave

Don't understand the purpose of the black "plaster guard"

Reading through the questions, you state a 6" hole is needed, obviously for the plaster guard, however, your instructions do not mention anything about this. What is its purpose? Is it required? What are problems if it is not used?

Answer: 
Hi John C, Thank you for your question. In many cases the rough in valve to the faucet is installed prior to the wall being finished and the trim installed. The plasterguard sets the spacing and helps protect the rough in during this time period when tile may be installed. The plasterguard is not needed for installation, just make sure that you plumb the rough in to the correct depth per the installation manual.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Josey, Thank you for your question. Your model B112900 faucet is equipped with a rotational limit stop that allows you to set the max hot water temperature on the faucet. Step 7 on page 7 of the attached manual will show you how to adjust the rotational limit stop on the end of the cartridge to increase the water temperature.
http://www.deltafaucet.com/customer...
You may also want to remove the cartridge and flush the faucet if you feel that there is a blockage in the hot water supply.

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.

Answer: 
Hi ScottLand, Thank you for your question. The model B112900 is installed with the hole large enough to accomodate the round plaster guard at approximately a 6" diameter. The escutcheon plate has a 7" diameter to cover the hole. The valve should be mounted to a stringer on the stud wall for support. The round cylinder shaped portion of the plaster guard will be removed prior to the final install. The rest is used in the install. I have attached a drawing from the install manual below to show you how the valve looks prior to the trim being installed.
You will have to consult with the manufacturer of the fittings to see if they are suitable for an in wall installation. You can use pex tubing in the shower only installation.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Just installed new shower stall. DO NOT DRILL A 6" HOLE. You only need a 2 1/2 " hole. If your off a little bit you can always enlarge it. If you drill it 6" you will have to buy a new end piece.

Sharkbite are great but I always solder. If you solder make sure you take the cartridge out first.

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.

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?

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.
