Is there a way to increase the water pressure?
Thank you for your inquiry, Katie G! The Delta Windemere Shower BT14496-OB faucet is not designed with an increasing/decreasing pressure adjustment. We would advised making sure the stops (if you have them) are fully open and flushing the valve out, if you are getting low pressure.

Do you sell replacement handles only, not the entire kit?
I am in need of a replacement handle for my Delta shower faucet for BT14496-OB.
Thank you for your inquiry! The handle RP44118OB, that comes with the Delta Windemere Tub and Shower BT14496-OB faucet can be ordered separately, from the full faucet.

Repalcing a 20 yera old Moen with the Windermere
I have a Moen positemp that I want to connect the Windermere to. I'd like to not have to replace the Moen positemp valve and only replace the parts that you actually see from the outside. I'm doing this to match my shower to the Windermere faucet that I used with a pedestal sink when I remodeled my bath and didn't see the need to replace the existing shower/tub. Do you make a unit that does?
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not make any Trim kits that will work with other faucet company valves or parts. To install the Delta Windemere Tub and Shower BT14496-OB you would need to install the Delta MultiChoice Rough-In Valve R10000-UNBX.

Why does'nt more hot water flow through valve.
Purchased Windemere Monitor 14 series tub and shower trim BT14496-OB plus universal tub and shower MultiChoice rough-in R10000-UNBX. Installed following instructions but little hot water flows through valve.
Hi Mr. Bee,
Thank you for your question! Please try adjusting the Rotational Limit Stop to allow more hot water into the mix. Due to variations in water temperature, you may need to adjust the stop from the default setting in a new installation. Below is a link to our How-To Video for adjusting the stop.

Tub Spout Question
I have a couple follow up questions to a previous Q & A you have listed here.
#1 - You mention that the tub spout (RP64721) can either thread onto a 1/2" iron pipe or slip on to a 1/2" copper pipe with set screw...But, there's no hole for a set screw.
#2 - You state that the copper pipe should be 1 1/2" - 2 3/4" from finished wall. That's a big difference and I want the tub spout to mount flush (and tight) against the finished wall. It doesn't seem like there's a full 1 1/4" of wiggle room to ensure the tub spout is tight and flush against the finished wall. What's the exact recommended copper pipe length?
Thank you for your questions. The tub spout (RP64721) that comes with the Delta Windemere Tub/Shower BT14496-OB model can be either thread onto a 1/2" iron pipe or slipped on to a 1/2" copper pipe with the adapter and set screw, that comes with it. The set screw would be located on the underside of the adapter, that slips on the pipe. The adapter with set screw is not used in the threaded connection/installation, only the slip on connection/installation. The tub spout pipe/tube is recommended to extend 1 1/2" - 2 3/4" from the finished wall.

slip on tub spout
I purchased a bt14496 to replace a replace a Delta single lever shower only unit. I am installing a tub / shower to replace just a shower.Apparently the tub spout is a slip on type. I have a few questions.
1- Is this a shark bite type fitting in the spout that is self sealing?
2-can cpvc pipe be used for the spout or only copper?
3-instructions do not say how far out of the wall the pipe needs to be. How far does pipe need to fit in the spout?
4-can the pipe be dry fitted and removed without fear of leaking
5-lastly, will this bt14496 unit fit in the valve body that my 1323 single lever shower only is in?
Thank you for your questions. The tub spout has a removable adapter that can thread onto 1/2" iron pipe or can slip onto 1/2" copper piping. To slip install this you would just push it back on the copper piping and thread the set screw on the underside in. The copper piping should be cut 1 1/2 - 2 3/4" from the finished wall. BT14496 trim will fit over your existing valve and cartridge.
