Repair kit with seats and springs no longer available for brand I have. These look same. So would appreciate if you could provide diameter (outside rim to rim) and height of rubber seat.

Seat Hole is small and the bottom of the valve. So you cannot even get two fingers in to squeeze the seat and insert it in the hole. Very frustrating and you may even damage the seat sealing surface in the process. I have an idea for a tool but not sure if already have one.

Answer: 
Hi A, Thank you for you question. We do not offer a tool for installing the seats and springs. If you place the seats and springs on the end of allen wrench often used to remove the handles you can use that as a guide to place the seats and springs in the hole and then use your finger to seat them properly.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Here are the instructions on changing out your Delta Faucet model # RP4993. Two Handle Models and Single Handle Tub/Shower Mixing Valves*: Shut off water supply; cover drain opening.1.) Remove handle. (2.) Unscrew & remove bonnet. (3.) Pull stem unit straight out to remove. (4.) Lift rubber seat and spring out of body (two seats and springs on Monitor®, Scald-Guard® and Delta® Mix*). Before replacing the seats and springs, the ports they go into should be wiped out with a soft, damp cloth to remove any mineral deposits. (5.) Insert replacement spring into small hole in valve body (two holes in Monitor®, Scald-Guard® and Delta® Mix) by inserting large end first. Place new seat down over spring top. Reassemble as above. Important: On Monitor®, Scald-Guard® and Delta® Mix models, after reassembly, turn on water. Cold must flow first. If hot flows first, then shut off the water supply. If there are two notches in body, remove stem unit, rotate it 180° and reassemble.
Single Handle Ball Valve Models: Shut off water supply; cover drain opening.1.) Remove handle. (2.) Partially unscrew adjusting ring, remove cap assembly. (3.) Pull up on ball stem to remove cam and ball assemblies. (4.) Lift rubber seats and springs out of body. (5.) Look at holes from which seats and springs have been removed. If these holes nearly touch each other, replace the springs with those in this kit. Insert large end of spring first. If there is about 1/8" between these holes, reuse springs just removed. Before replacing the seats and springs, the ports they go into should be wiped out with a soft, damp cloth to remove any mineral deposits. (6.) Place new seats down over springs. (7.) Reinstall ball assembly with cam and packing. (8.) Install cap assembly hand tight, then tighten adjusting ring†. (9.) Replace handle. (10.) Remove aerator (if kitchen or lavatory faucet). Turn faucet on to mixed position and then open water supplies. Tighten adjusting ring (if supplied with your model) until no water will leak around ball when faucet is ‘on’ and pressure is exerted downward on the handle. Allow water to flow for one minute to flush any debris from lines. Check for leaks. Replace aerator.
Service Note: To stop a leak under the handle tighten cap assembly hand tight, tighten adjusting ring†. Always loosen adjusting ring† before attempting to remo

Answer: 
Hello everyone, for those of you that need a little more explanation than the confusing directions.. here you go.

TURN OFF THE WATER!! Take off the handle, remove big nut that is around the white plastic piece that also has a brass stem. You will need to remove this too. When you look at the empty hole, you will see the little hole where the spring and rubber washer goes. Really watch how the plastic piece is in there, if you put it in backwards, your handle will move the opposite way than before.
I didn't know I could load pics, sorry... If you read this, please take pics for everyone else.

Thank you for your question. Seats and springs are used to prevent leaks. If the seats or springs are cracked, split, dried-out or missing, they will need to be replaced.

I have a Delta Shower faucet that was installed in 1987. It is the type where you push up to open and turn left or right for hot or cold. There is an indicator on the plastic knob indicating left (red) and right (Blue). From the catalog, it appears to be a Classic Monitor 13 Series. The faucet is now leaking. Should I replace the seats and springs or the entire cartridge? What are the replacement part numbers?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Based on the description of your faucet, you have a 600 series faucet. There should be a ball assembly inside your valve. We recommend replacing the seats and springs which are Delta Faucet model # RP4993 and replacing the ball assembly which is Delta Faucet model RP70. You can purchase these from your local wholesaler or retailer.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. If the springs were to be set on a table, the wide part should be at the bottom with the more narrow part at the top. The seats are then set on top of the springs.
