Answer: 
Hi Clyde,
Thank you for your question. The bonnet, which is the piece directly under where the faucet is leaking will unscrew allowing you to pull the spout off and access the o-rings. I have attached a link to the parts breakdown for the model 155-WF below to help with your repair.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Jerry, Thank you for your question. To access the RP50587 cartridge you will need to first shut off the water supply to the faucet. You will then remove the handle by loosening the set screw under the red/blue button. Next unscrew and remove the cap and the bonnet. This will allow you to remove and replace the RP50587. I have attached a link to the manual for the model 16927-SD-DST below which includes the parts breakdown to help you with your repair.
Thanks,
Dave

I recently made an attempt to replace the stem unit in my delta faucet handle because it was leaking from under the handle. When I tried to remove the allen set screw it was stuck and eventually stripped. What can I do this point? Drill it out?

Answer: 
Hi Craig, Thank you for your question. Drilling the stripped set screw out is most likely the solution to your issue. If you don't damage the threads you can just replace the screw. If you do, the handle can be replaced.
Thanks,
Dave

Leaking drain pipe

I installed a new B2596LF-SS faucet and drain pipe on an American Standard porcelain sink. It is leaking between the rubber gasket and sink. I have used silicone grease on the rubber donut seal so it doesn't bind when tightening. There is a slight surface irregularity on the mating surface of the sink. should I sand it? Use Silicone adhesive on the sink? on the threads? Thanks in advance for your help. Raymond

Hi Ray, Thank you for your question. We would recommend using the silicone on the sink to help create the seal with the gasket.

How do I take this apart for repair?

This faucet was probably installed in year 2000. We do not have a product sheet or manual and have not been able to find one on your web site. Nor do we have a product number.
The handle started to leak and we cannot figure out how to disassemble it in order to replace the necessary parts.

Any help you can give would be very much appreciated.

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for your question. To make your repair you will need to first remove the handle. Place the palm on your hand on top of the handle , push down and turn counter-clockwise. This should remove the top portion of the handle. Once this cover is off you will see a screw, remove this screw and the handle will come off. Underneath the handle is the bonnet nut that holds in the stem assembly and a seat and spring in place. Once the bonnet nut is removed you can replace the RP1740 stem assembly and RP4993 seats and springs to stop the leak. I have attached a parts breakdown of a similar faucet model below to help you with the repair.
Thanks,
Dave

RP25513 vs RP24096 for rough in kit R2707 (installed 2001)

I have a leak under both current 'knob' style faucets. I believe valves are RP 24096 - 1/2 turn. #Hot water on left side turns 1/2 turn 'counter-clockwise' to full on - Cold water on right side turns clock-wise#. Will be replacing 'knob' handles with Roman style levers. Can I use the RP25513 valves? Are they interchangeable, except for 1/4 turn #RP25513# vs 1/2 turn #RP24096#

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Steve, Thank you for your question. You will want to continue to use the RP24096 stem assemblies. The only difference between the RP24096 and the RP25513 is the 1/4 turn stop. You do not want to use the 1/4 turn stops on your roman tub faucet as this will limit your water flow rate.
Make sure to replace the RP4993 seats and springs when you change the handles and stem assemblies to complete your repair.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi T, Thank you for your question. It sounds like there may be some debris in the lines causing the noise. You will want to flush the lines of the faucet. I have attached a link below for a how to flush the lines on your kitchen faucet video. The video will show the process on both 1 and 2 handle faucets.
Thanks,
Dave

My Delta faucet sounds like it is running all the time, why?

I have a BT2710 Model Roman Tub Trim Faucet. I understand that it uses R2707 valves. The bathtub faucet is not leaking and there is no indication of water anywhere around the tub. However, it sounds as though the water is running all of the time. We turned the water off to the house and relieved the water pressure and, sure enough, the sound went away. The water was turned back on and the sound came back. I have definitely isolated it to the bathtub unit but I am baffled as to what is causing the issue. This does not appear to be a mixing valve that could leak through from cold to hot. I need your thoughts.

Answer: 
Hi Stuart, Thank you for your question. Even though you do not see any indication of water we recommend checking under the tub/deck to visually verify that you have no leaks. You are correct that the faucet has 2 separate valves and cross flow is unlikely.
Thanks,
Dave

Lahara roman trim with 4707 rough-in

Hi. I would like full flow rate at 1/4 turn. If 1/4 stops are inserted it reduces the flow rate. Is there a different cartridge available that will fit in the 4707 to allow full flow at 1/4 turn. (Like the Lahara 2-handle lav set)?

Hi John, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately there is not a way to get full flow out of our roman tub valves with only a 1/4 turn.

Answer: 
Hi Robin, Thank you for your question. A 1/8" allen wrench is the most common size used to remove the set screws on our single handle faucets. A 3/32" allen wrench would be most commonly used on 2 handle models.
Thanks,
