Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sould've have gone with metal faucet Bought this online from trusted Canadian retailer and thought the price was great and come to find out the faucet was plastic with chrome finish. Within 2 weeks of installing, and yes it was installed correctly, the water started to spew between the seams of the faucet. I cannot exchange with retailer as it has been installed. I will only exchange if Delta will exchange with the metal model RP15474. I do NOT want another plastic model. The pull-down diverter is the feature I want, but not if it's gonna break within two weeks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from User likes features except for diverter DELTA 1700 Trim Kit Installation just completed today. On surface all features are quite attractive EXCEPT for the 'tub faucet downward pull shower diverter'. Quite difficult for my wife to manage. We may adapt to it; but on-the-other-hand we may need to convert to the conventional 'pull-up diverter'. Any other recommendations would be appreciated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lasted Too Short Of A Time I am now on my 3rd diverter spout. I too have issues with the cheaply made inside assembly. The plastic is apparently too thin to handle the water pressure and bursts thru the side.The only reason I get another is because I have a white faucet assembly throughout the bathroom and can swap out the guts to maintain the match with everything else.The only reason I am giving it a 2 star rating is because I can switch the white housing.

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.

we have a RP17453 in our bathroom.Guests at times can't figure out how to turn on the shower. When installed this came with a sticker to be installed on the spout where water flows into the tub. Can we get a replacement sticker from you?

Asked by: Michele
Hello Michele, Thank you for your question. The RP17829 and RP17472 are the stickers that inform others of how to use the RP17453. These stickers can be purchae from any local or online dealer that sells Delta products. Best regards, Tanya

The item RP17453 is fit for pipe protruding 3.5" from the wall?

Asked by: Raymond
Thank you for your question, Raymond! This tub spout will sweat onto a smooth copper pipe extending 2 - 4" from the finished wall, or thread onto a 1/2" IPS nipple extending 5/8 - 1 5/8" from the finished wall. Best regards, Jon

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

Does this the 17453 faucet have a matching escutcheon? I have a 1/4" gap between the base of the faucet and the tub that I am trying to cover.

Asked by: Dale
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP17453 does not have a matching escutcheon. However, we do manufacture tub spouts that contain escutcheons that might work for your application. Both Delta Faucet models RP52148 and RP53419 have escutcheons.

How long of a 1/2" pipe stub is needed for the adapter?

The distance from the wall to the end of the 1/2" copper pipe on my bathtub is 1 1/4". Is this long enough to use with the brass adapter that comes with this Delta tub spout? If not, what is the recommended way to install the spout? I looked on-line for detailed installation instructions, but could not find any.
Asked by: AW
Hi AW, Thank you for your question. You will need at a minimum 1-1/2" and preferably 1-3/4" of copper to solder on the adapter. The only other option is if you can solder on a 1/2" copper male adapter keeping your overall length to 1-1/4" at the maximum, 1/2" at the minimum and then threading the tub spout adapter on.
