Cleaning inside of shower head
Can this shower head be taken apart for further cleaning? I can get the shroud/bonnet part off, but the rest appears to permanently attached. I wanted to try and clean the calcium buildup from the inside of the shower head but cannot get it apart. I have done the vinegar soak but there still seems to be some blockage that I cannot remove or get to.
Thank you for your question. The showerhead will have a debris screen in the back of the head, which you can remove to clean. However, the showerhead cannot be disassembled further. Soaking the head in a half and half white vinegar and water solution should help dissolve any mineral buildup.

How do I operate the tub drain?
This faucet was installed as a tub faucet without a shower head.
Hi Dale, Thank you for your question. The model 1748-74 includes only the faucet. The tub drain would have been purchased as a separate item. I am unable to tell you how to operate the drain.

Where is the diverter on tub spout RP5833
I need to replace the tub and shower trim but the diverter is not on the tub spout, it's under the control handle.
Hi Judith, Thank you for your question. The RP5833 is a non diverter tub spout, there is no diverter on the spout. You have a push button diverter on your existing faucet. You can order a RP2865 plug for your existing diverter and then get a new trim with a tub spout diverter. This will give you more finish options to choose from.

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 1748-74 has a temperature handle that can be removed by squeezing the sides together slightly and then pulling the cap off at the top of the triangle.

For the series 1700 shower faucet, how do you turn on the shower?
I just moved into a coop, and can't figure out how to switch on the shower. I have the Delta 1700 series faucet.
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 1748-74 has the diverter to the shower on the tub spout. To operate it, just pull down on the end of the spout. It will divert the water to showerhead.
