Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted just under two years This spout lasted just under two years before failing. Once I pull down on the diverter, water spews everywhere with no pressure at all to the shower head. Very difficult to shower to say the lest.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Both broke Got 2 of the spouts for my bathrooms. Both of them broke within a week of each other. The inner plastics piece just crack and broke and spews water everywhere. Makes it difficult to shower when the spout breaks suddenly on you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Best I have found on the market No requirement for an access panel behind the shower. Delta can be repaired from the front side , Faucet cartridges or the diverter. Fewer moving parts mean longer lasting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product has failed us twice... Later in 2016 I wanted to take a shower and as I pulled the nozzle down, it started spewing out water.. once we removed it we found a crack inside of the spout and we had just replaced our old one probably in the summer of 2016. We have since replaced it again with the same product and just now (it is now May 6th 2017) it has cracked again. Perhaps it is just bad luck? Or maybe it's just made with extremely cheap materials but then sold for a steep price? I'm not sure but definitely would not recommend and quite disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I like the overall design and ease of use. The hidden quality of the pull down diverter is especially appealing. Very good and well made product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect (Which is what I expected) I ordered this item as a replacement of my existing tub spout. The order was processed and shipped very expeditiously; I received it within 3 business days. It was exactly what I needed (a direct replacement for what I had) and installed easily. Up to this point all was excellent; however when I tested it, it leaked a small amount of water from the spout when in showerhead flow mode. I expected a 100% flow rate for something that was brand new. Several weeks after installation, the leakage issue remains (the same as initially experienced, not better, no worse). My disappointment prevents me from giving your product a 5-star rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diverter Spout Have 63 of these in the building and hard water and rust particles do not seem to affect them. Just make sure your sweat collar depth is correct or it will ruin your day. Usually I set them at 3/8" from the wall using an FRP backing panel. If you intend to set tile in, go with 1/2 to 9/16 from the wall. On the O Ring I put some silicone grease or even a dielectric grease on it to insure no tear or scuffs occur to the O Ring as I thread on the Diverter Spout. As so far, the 63 in my building have not failed on their own, One was damaged in the 5 years they've been installed by human factors. For me, deviating from this product would be dumb...

The divergent on my spout RP17453 gets stuck in both positions and doesn’t pop back up when water is off - can it be fixed or does it need to be replaced - the diverted can forceably be pulled or pushed into both positions 

Asked by: Matt
Hi, Matt. Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your Delta diverter tub spout assembly. If the diverter is stuck, we would recommend to replace the whole tub spout assembly. Best Regards, Rosanna

I'm installing a new RP17453 (plastic) tub spout to replace our 16-year old one that just started leaking. Is it necessary to use teflon tape before screwing the plastic threaded part onto our copper pipe? Instructions don't say, but our old one didn't.

Asked by: lori
Hello Lori, Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta Pull-Down Diverter Tub spout RP17453 does not need any putty or tape with installing it on the brass adapter/pipe. Best regards, Tanya

Which model would you recommend to replace faucet # RP17453, if I do not need a diverter? I have one in my tub that is stuck in the down position, but I do not need a diverter because the shower is a separate stall and has its own water supply.

Asked by: Donna
Hi Donna, Thank you for your inquiry! We do not make a non diverter tub spout that is designed exactly like the RP17453 one. However, we do manufacture several different non-diverter spouts, please the link below. https://www.deltafaucet.com/search-results?searchTerm=non+diverter+spouts Best regards, Tanya

What is the construction of the RP17453SS tub spout?  Is it plastic, plastic with a metal shell, or zinc (ZAMAK) casting?  I presume it mounts using the RP12307 adapter.

Asked by: BenB
Thank you for your question, BenB! This tub spout is non-metallic and does use the RP12307 brass adapter. Best regards, Jon

I have a Delta #RP17463 chrome tub spout with diverter on my tub now. It is 20!years old but rarely used. I want to change it to stainless. There is no need for a diverter since there is no shower. What non-diverter tub spout would you recommend?

Asked by: Rodwil
Thank you for your question, Rodwil! The RP17453 tub spout is a sweat onto 1/2" C.W.T. or thread onto 1/2" IPS installation, however, I will include a link below to all of our non-diverting tub spouts for reference. https://www.deltafaucet.com/search-results?searchTerm=non-diverter Best regards, Edward

Hello,  I am trying to replace the faucet in my tub,  But the brass fitting it screws onto is larger than all of the standard size one's.  When I measure the plastic thread hole in the old one, it measures 1 1/4" (inches)

Asked by: JJWeb
Thank you for your question, JJWeb! RP17453 connects by either sweating onto 1/2" C.W.T. (copper water tube) or threading onto 1/2" IPS (iron pipe size). If your previous tub spout was installed onto another manufacturers adapter, this will need to be removed before using this tub spout. Best regards, Edward

this model faucet has failed for the second time. 6 mo ago it leaked back past the o ring and threads and into the wall, damaging my ceiling. I replaced it with another delta. it just did it again. Is there another one with brass threads internally?

Asked by: Brian Shelton
Hi, Brian. Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing a leak at your Delta tub spout. We do have another tub spout that works with the brass adapter. The part is RP19820. Here is a link to the unit on our website: https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/product/RP19820 Best Regards, Rosanna

will the spout work for my situation explained below?

My 1/2" copper pipe extends exactly 4" from the wall and has threads on the end. threads are 1/2' long. will the spout thread onto the pipe and be tight against the wall and be facing down?
Asked by: Jack
Thank you for your question, Jack. The tub spout will thread onto a 1/2" pipe that extends 5/8" to 1 5/8" from the finished wall or sweat onto a 1/2" copper pipe that is 2" to 4". Best regards, Jon
