Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great and Looks Really Nice My old Delta Bathtub faucet had developed a leak. No matter where I put the handle, there was always a drip. That was disappointing as it was only 35 years old. HAHAHAHAHA :) Anyway: I made an attempt at changing some rubber thingies. The attempt went awry. After 35 years, the old Delta faucet was indeed securely attached to the valve. I managed to twist the valve while trying to get to the little rubber gaskets. Just in case anyone is wondering: If your channel lock pliers slip, and the valve gets twisted, there is probably going to be a lot of water spewing out of the thing when the water is turned back on. :p It was old so I decided to install a new set. I got the "Classic Monitor 13 Series Tub and Shower" set. The geniuses who built the town-home building that I live in put a chimney just a few inches from the back of the shower wall. I had to cut a hole that was only thirteen inches wide (yea - studs - thirteen inches apart - geniuses) to just GET to the wall that was being blocked by the chimney. Then, I had to use a hammer to beat a hole in the wall where the shower hardware was. No, there was not even enough room to get in there with a saw (besides the fact that I had to reach through SIDEWAYS through the thirteen inch hole that I DID cut out with a saw. DISCLOSURE: While making this repair, I used up my store of curse words and invented some new ones to use on the folks who built the place. After I cut through the pipes and removed the old valve, I replaced the pipes with good old plastic. I purchased adapters that had the metal threads for the valve, and the plastic female for the pipes. I also had to buy three of those things (I will not mention a brand name but they allowed me to insert the plastic pipe in one end and the copper pipe in the other. I couldn't just use copper as there was not any room to solder the pipes back together. The plastic and the copper went together very well. With the two different types of adapters, a couple feet of plastic pipe, some plastic connectors, pipe cleaner, and a bit of glue, the bath and shower were back up and running in around a hour. I did this myself after I got a bid for $500 just for the labor from a local plumber (Yes .... That was just the labor cost. It did NOT include the new valve set.). I told my buddies there was no way I would ever pay someone that much money for something that I could do myself. I thought the price I was quoted JUST FOR LABOR was highway robbery. My total cost was around $130 for all the fittings AND the valve set. If I there had been enough room for me to use copper pipe and solder it back together, the total cost would have been around $100.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service My Delta faucet was dripping so I sent an email to Delta describing the problem. I received an email back within a few hours notifying me that a replacement cartridge was ordered. Since my product was registered, the replacement is part of the lifetime warranty and thus free. It arrived in several days and installed in five minutes. The you tube video I found was better than the written instructions. The hot water limit on the new cartridge is much easier to set than on the original. Buy name brand and register your product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has great features that I was looking for. I bought this product to replace my 18 year old ones this model I purchased is chrome and was easily instaled by my plumber and works well. I do like the look of it and the appearance it has on the wall it's a very nice addition to our bathroom.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete dissatisfaction with this product This faucet was installed in an extra bathroom in our home. I decided yesterday to take a hot, soaking bath in the tub, but after waiting a long time, could not get any hot water from the faucet. It was tepid at most. I turned and tried the sink faucet and was able to get good, hot water. I don't know what the problem could be, but after spending between $100 - $150 to buy the faucet and supplies needed to install it and getting a plumber, I am frustrated that the bath in that room is now totally useless!

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?
Asked by: Jim
Hello Jim, 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. Best Regards, Justin

Will the 17 series valve cartridge work in this 13 series body?

I just replaced a 30 plus year old Delta shower faucet with this Delta 134900 13 series unit. Once I tested it I realized this 13 series unit does not have a water volume control. it appears the 17 series models do. Can I replace the valve cartridge that came with this 13 series unit with a 17 series valve cartridge to get both water volume and temperature controls for faucet body? If so what part number do I ask for and where can I purchase this? Thanks Keith Carroll
Asked by: Keith
Hi Keith, Thank you for your question. If you installed the R10000 multichoice universal rough that came with your model 134900 faucet you can upgrade to the 17 series. The cartridge will fit the rough but you will need to upgrade to the 17 series valve only trim, not just the cartridge to have the faucet function properly. The 13 series handle would not allow you to control the dual function cartridge. A trim like our T17094 will work for what you need. Thanks, Dave

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?
Asked by: wujekcity
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. Thanks, Dave

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?
Asked by: george
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. Thanks, Dave

Could you please tell me if this item has volume control? Thanks

Asked by: Jason
Hi Jason, Thank you for your question. The model 134900 tub/shower faucet does not offer volume control, only temperature control. Our 17 series faucets offer temperature and volume control. Thanks, Dave

Is it possible to get a finish other than chrome, like a bronze?

Asked by: Davis
Hi Davis, Thank you for your question. The model 134900 tub/shower faucet is only available in chrome. To step up to our (RB) venetian bronze finish you will want to look at our Linden collection T14494-RB trim and the R10000-UNBX rough. The faucet trim and rough are sold as separate items. Thanks, Dave

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?
Asked by: Austin
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. Thanks, Dave

Cutting o-rings

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?
Asked by: Randy
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!
