Replaceable with series 17?
Is this replaceable with a series 17 trim and valve kit without replacing the piping unit?
Thank you for your question, Ljh08. The model B114900-SS does not use our multi-choice universal rough. You cannot switch to a 17 series trim using your existing rough. The entire faucet, trim and rough would have to be replaced.

I cannot get hot water. Only lukewarm water when I turn to 'H' Hot.
I've uploaded a picture of my delta shower valve. Can I do something to adjust this so I can get Hot water??
Thank you for your inquiry, Kelly Mya! The Delta Foundations Tub and Shower B114900 faucet has a Rotational Limit Stop, which you can adjust to allow for more hot water. For help adjusting the RLS, please see page 7 of the Installation Instructions:

Why is PEX not recommended for the tub spout?
Thank you for your question John.
The the entire tub spout drop must be 1/2" copper or iron pipe and extend 8-18" from the valve. Other piping, including PEX, will have a different internal diameter. Anything outside of these specifications can create back pressure, resulting in water being forced up to the shower head when using the tub spout.
Best regards, Edward

problem with new install
I recently installed a new tub and shower combination. When I turn the water on at the handle it comes out of the tub spout as it should, however it also comes out of the showerhead at about half stream, without me pulling the knob.
Thank you for your inquiry! What you are experiencing with your Delta Foundations Tub and Shower B114900 faucet, is called shower-rise. Someone has made an installation error in your wall. Here are the four things to check.
1. The distance between the center of the valve body to the center of the tub spout must be between 8 and 18 inches.
2. You must use straight ½” copper or ½” iron piping for the piping down to the tub spout. No PVC piping, PEX piping, drop ear elbows or shark fittings are allowed for the piping going to the tub spout.
3. You can only use one 90 degree elbow with the piping going to the tub spout.
4. The main valve body must be installed right side up.

Low Pressure from Showerhead
Water from tub spout is strong, but the showerhead seems to have restricted flow. How do I get more water through the showerhead?
Thank you for your inquiry! The shower head that comes with the Delta Foundations Single Handle Tub and Shower B114900 has a designed flow rate of 2 GPM @ 80 PSI. There is no way of increasing or decreasing the flow rate of this unit.

How can I adjust temperature?
The handle stops with water lukewarm. I need to make water hotter.
Thank you for your question. There is a way to adjust the rotational limit stop on this cartridge inside of the valve body for this faucet. Here is a how to video in our Video Gallery on how to adjust the rotational limit stop.
