why don't I have any water flow?
after installing the new 13/14 series faucet the amount of water comming out of the faucet isn't enought to bath or shower with?
Hi George, Thank you for your question. Please verify that you have both the hot and cold water supplies to the faucet turned on. The pressure balanced cartridge will only let out a trickle of water if both supplies are not on. You can also remove the cartridge and turn on the water supplies to flush the lines and insure that there is no blockage in the lines. Finally inspect the cartridge itself for debris that may restrict the water flow.

Water temperature and water flow
We Just got this unit installed. However when we want a higher water temperature we have to turn the faucet more to allow more water flowing out. Sometimes this is waste of water. Is there a way that we can have a small flow but high water temperature?
Hi Austin, Thank you for your question. I have attached the instructions for how to adjust the rotational limit stop which is how you set the high water temperature of the faucet. The way that the cartridge mixes the water in a single handle valve does not allow for high temperature at low volume.

Have the Series 13/14 body. I am experiencing tub/shower rise. Have installed according to directions and still have lots of water in shower head
1) Have 11 inches from mixer to drop ell (sharkbite on one end with 1/2" copper and 1/2 Inch iron). 2) Have sharkbite on mixer with 1/2" copper. No pex to spout. 3) Only 1 ell installed between mixer and spout.
Should I try to have a solder 1/2 Female adapter instead of sharkbite?
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, sharkbite fittings cannot be used in the tub drop. It needs to be a 1/2" copper or IPS pipe with only one 90 degree elbow with a soldered connection.

I just installed the inside of the shower handle and realized I don’t like the look of the handle itself so I just want to buy a more modern handle but don’t want to have to change the inside part again. What other model can I buy that will fit?
Thank you for your question. Any of our Delta handles that start with "H7" will work with the 132900 shower unit. Here is a link to show the handle options:

changing water direction from spout to showerhead
ive noticed that when turning off the water completely with the valve still in the showerhead position that after about 5 seconds the water pressure builds up and causes the the valve to open to the spout. Should I manually press the plunger down to return water flow through the spout or allow it to do it itself? could either way damage the valves or the spout?
Hi Wujekcity, Thank you for your question. Your tub spout diverter is working correctly. The diverter should release the remaining water through the spout once the water supply is turned off. You do not want to push down on the diverter when the water is on as this can damage the seals in the assembly.

I looked thru the rough in instructions but I can't find how a big a hole I need to make for the valve to come thru.
It is going thru a fiberglass tub surround.
Thank you for your question, kdegen! The plasterguard on the valve itself is also usable as a template allowing for both simple 90 degree cuts as well as helping with the placement of the valve to the finished wall. The distance of the wall should always be flush with the front of the plasterguard unless a thin wall is used, which would require the plasterguard to be installed just behind the wall.
Best regards, Edward

Each time I try to insert the cartridge into the housing I cut the o-rings and then the water will not shut off. I have lubed the rings and still no luck. I can not seem to get the cartridge into the housing, I have the side marked "Hot water" to the left..the valve is mounted with the "top" marking in the up position, the two notches aligned, but it is a bear to push in and locate the two sockets in the back, then it leaks, I pull it out and the o-rings are damaged. Any pointers?
Hi Randy! It looks like you are attempting to put an old cartridge assembly (RP19804) into a new MultiChoice rough valve. The cartridge you should be using is a RP46074 valve cartridge. Thanks for contacting Delta Faucet!

Shower body model # 134900
i just installed a this type of shower body and i am experiencing a problem of not enough hot water. i live in a apartment which i already ruled out the possible washing machine, dishwasher and other possible devices that may cause a problem. i will like if you can email the manual for this shower body model # 134900.
Thank you for your post. Please find attached a link to the Maintenance and Installation guide for Delta Faucet model #134900. To assist with the water temperature, I would recommend review of page 7 (Adjusting the Rotational Limit Stop).
