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...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water Saver I would definitely recommend this tub spout. I'm not wasting water anymore when I take a shower. It draws all the water up and out of the shower head --no more spraying out of the spout and just running down the drain. I'm loving it! Thank 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.
