Hi Bob, Thank you for your question!
You have our Delta 1600 series tub/shower. The 1600 series is discontinued but we still manufacture some parts. You will need the RP1991 valve cartridge and RP4993 seats and springs to resolve your leak.

I lost the white plastic cap that covers the brass tip that allows the handle to move the temperature selector? Where can I get that part.

Hi David, Thank you for your question!
The disc does not have a separate part number. The entire RP74236 will have to be ordered.

The online information says 1300 & 1400 series. However these series trim kits do not appear to provide the temperature control that is needed with this cartridge.

Hi Mike, Thank you for that question!
The rp74236 is the ceramic version of the rp46074 13/14 series cartridge. Any T13 or T14 series trim would work with the rp74236 cartridge.

i am hoping to use the T14251 outdoors

want to use in an outdoor shower on an exterior wall of a heated space. Shower is covered and surrounded so minimum sun and rain/snow exposure. But it is obviously exposed to temp extremes. Can you use the T14251. Is Ceramic cartridge preferred. I will winterize the entire shower but could also pull the cartridge if that helps.

Answer: 
Hi Seve,

Thank you for your question. The T14251 could be installed outside if fully winterized. The ceramic RP74236 is designed to be longer lasting in applications with harder water or more debris. However, the pressure balance and temperature control aspects are the same as the included RP46074 cartridge.

Thanks,
Jon

Answer: 
Hi Fix it chick, Thank you for your question. You may or may not need the spacer depending on how you think the handle and trim sleeve match up to one another. The spacer helps set up this distance between the 2 parts.

Answer: 
Hi Milton, Thank you for your question. It sounds if some debris may have gotten into the cartridge during the installation. We recommend removing the cartridge and flushing the faucet to clear the lines. Make sure the valve body and cartridge itself are clean and free from debris. You can separate the upper and lower portions of the cartridge to access the seats and springs and insure that they are debris free as well.
Thanks,
Dave

Do you need to turn off the house water supply prior to changing this cartridge?

We have had great difficulty keeping the knob on this assembly. After reinstalling and tightening the set screw every few weeks, the brass tip on the cartridge stem has broke off. I assume that I need to replace the cartridge?

Hi Wade, Thank you for your question. Unless the rough in valve is equipped with screwdriver stops that allow you to shut off the water supplies to the faucet you will have to turn off the water to the house to change the cartridge.

Answer: 
Hi Joe, Thank you for your question. If you have a single handle faucet that controls only the water temperature and turns on by moving the handle counter-clockwise you will have either a 1300/1400 series or a 13/14 series faucet depending on the age. If the faucet is older than February 2006 it should be a 1300/1400 series that uses the RP19804 cartridge. The top half of the cartridge will be white in color. If the faucet is newer than February 2006 it should be a 13/14 series faucet and uses the RP46074 cartridge which has a gray top.
Thanks,
Dave

Do you have to use the ceramic cartridge is this the only option for this cartridge?

If valve leaking do we replace valve and cartridge. Also what other parts do we need to order if valve leaking? Can we do this without cutting through backside of wall to fix if valve leaking?

Answer: 
Hi Lori, Thank you for your question. Replacing the cartridge should stop the leak in a 13/14 series faucet. The non ceramic equivalent to the RP74236 cartridge is the RP46074. The cartridge can be replaced through the front of the faucet. There is no need to cut into the wall to access the valve body. Here is a link to the How to Replace a Delta Tub or Shower Cartridge video:
