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.

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

I have an old Delta Tub spout that screwed on using this fitting will it fit on this?

Here is a photo of the old "stub" that is sweated on to a copper pipe. This is a 25 year old Delta 600 series tub set. I would like to fit a stainless steel tub spout on this without removing and replacing. Open to other spout models in stainless.
Asked by: PaulR
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP17453SS can either be sweat onto a 1/2" copper pipe or threaded onto a 1/2" iron pipe. It does include an adapter assembly.

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

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

Is there a oil bronze replacement spout for the RP17453 with the RP12307 adapter?

Asked by: Calvin Evanoff
Hi Calvin, Unfortunately we do not have a replacement spout in the oil rubbed bronze finish with an RP12307 adapter. We do have an alternate tub spout in Venetian Bronze which is similar that works with the RP12307 adapter. The model number is RP34357RB. http://www.deltafaucet.com/bath/details/rp34357rb.html?showPhotoGallery=false Best Regards, Rosanna

Can I use RP17453 to replace a spout?

I have a 3-3/4" threaded iron nipple. Will I be able to install this RP17453 without cutting the pipe? If not what other Delta spout can I use instead? Thanks.
Asked by: Art
Hi Art, Thank you for your question. The adapter used on the RP17453 tub spout requires that the pipe nipple extend beyond the finished wall between 5/8" to 1-5/8". Our tub spouts like the model RP63157 that the nipple threads into the nose of the spout require 3-7/8" to 4" of pipe from the finished wall. Thanks, Dave

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

Can I replace the spout by itself or do i have to replace the entire set?

I laid the toilet brush across my tub spout to dry out and it has tarnished the finish (see photos). My landlord says the spout, handle and shower head all have to be replaced and a plumber has to do it. I think the spout should be relatively simple to replace. Can I just purchase a replacement spout and install it without having to go into the entire shower set-up? Or, is there a product I can purchase that will clean the tarnish/discoloration and return it to "normal"? As you can see from the photos, the water is hard and the fixtures are already spotted with mineral deposits. Help! Please?!!! Thank you sooo much!
Asked by: Amanda
Thank you for your questions. We would recommend replacing just the tub spout. Delta Faucet part #RP17453 can be purchased and installed (instructions are included with the packaging).

Hi, is the Delta RP17454 interchangeable with the RP17453 and what are the benefits of each? Thanks

Asked by: Rob
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet part # RP17454 and Delta Faucet part # RP17453 are interchangeable. The difference between the two is that RP17454 is metal and RP17453 is non-metallic. It is a personal preference for the consumer to pick one.

I have a 1" threaded female adapter that is sodered onto the normal 1/2" threaded copper pipe coming from the wall. I am looking for an easy fix...

From my research I have found that the delta 17453 may work with the included adapter. It sounds like the adapter that comes with this is like the one that is sodered onto my existing pipe. Does this adapter easily come off of the 17453 spout so I can just thread in the 17453 onto my existing 1" adapter?
Asked by: Chris
Hi Chris, Thank you for your question! This tub spout comes with the RP12307 adapter. If you already have this adapter installed, simply unscrew the included adapter and screw on the spout. Best regards, Jon

I have a rp12307 adaptor sticking out of the wall from when the first delta was put in. Alot of the spouts I have looked at only have thread out at the end of the spout about 4" further out.
Asked by: Jeff
Hi Jeff, Thank you for your question! A majority of our tub spouts will fit the RP12307 adapter. The basic ones are the RP17453 and RP5834. Below is a link to browse our tub spouts.

I purchased the rp17454, from Home Depot hrough Mail order. The previous tub spout was attached by set screw.

The existing copper pipe is 1/2 ", a length from the wall to the end of the pipe is 2 5/8". 1) will I have to cut the pipe to a set length? 2) I have never sweated copper pipe, is this my only option to install this tub spout?
Asked by: D&D
Hi D&D, Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet models RP17453 and RP17454 attach to the walls in the same way. They can either be sweat onto a 1/2" copper pipe or threaded onto a 1/2" iron pipe. They both include the RP12307 adapter assembly. The only difference between the two models is the RP17453 is non-metallic and RP17454 is metal. Thanks. Jody

Will your RP17453 tub spout with pull-down diverter screw onto my threaded 1/2" copper pipe protruding 4 1/4" from the tub sidewall?

Asked by: Ken
Hi Ken, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the pipe would be too long to install this tub spout. Some tub spout models will list "Thread into nose of spout" in the product features, such as the RP61357. However, the pipe should be 3 7/8 - 4" for these models. http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp61357.html Best regards, Jon

What diverter stub out options are available?

I want to buy a Pull Down Diverter, but I have not been able to find if a 3/4" stub out will fit., or what model will fit. I am fairly adept at plumbing but would like to forgo sizing down to a smaller fitting within the wall cavity. Does Delta offer the Pull Down Diverter tub spout with a 3/4" NPT adapter within the unit?
Asked by: C N
Hi Craig, Thank you for your question. None of our pull down tub spout diverters will fit a 3/4" stub out. We offer the U1075-PK and U1011-PK which are pull up style of diverters that will thread onto a 3/4" IPS nipple. Thanks, Dave

How to remove delta tub spout - pull down diverter

It seems ro have a set screw hole in the bottom however there is no set screw to be found. I took a picture of the bottom screw hole and see nothing in there. The spout It isnt s rewing off either. Please help.
Asked by: Mrs. Fix it
Hi Mrs. Fix it, Thank you for reaching out. The hole on the bottom of the spout is a weep hole and does not contain a set screw. This tub spout threads onto an adapter, which connects to 1/2" IPS or sweats onto 1/2" copper. If it seems stuck, there may be sealant between the wall and spout that is preventing it from turning.

Pull down diverter spout

I have a pull down diverter spout similar to delta models RP17453 and RP17454. Its lendth is 6 1/8". The threads are at the base of spout (the end that goes against the wall) and the thread opening is 1 1/4". The iron pipe pertudes 2 3/16" from the wall. The threads are at the base of the pipe.

Asked by: George
Thank you for your question. The only difference between Delta Faucet model # RP17453 and RP17454 is that RP17453 is non-metallic and RP17454 is metal. You will need a 1/2 inch pipe for installation of either one of these models.
