Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can’t take shower. Less than a year old and water spews everywhere when we try to pull the pull down diverted to take a shower.

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.
Date published: 2017-05-06
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.
Date published: 2016-05-05
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.

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.

How do you deliming tub spout for pull-down diverter? Lime keeps getting built up in spring, is there away to remove and put back spring foe cleaning?
Asked by: epagames
Dear Epagames, Thank you for your question. We do not recommend disassembling the Delta tub spouts. To dissolve any sediment that may collect in the diverter or face, just soak the face of the tub spout in a 50/50 or stronger mixture of white vinegar and tap water for 10 to 15 minutes.

Delta Tub Spout Pull Down Diverter, replace it?

The water is not diverting to the shower. I think I have to replace the entire unit. Is there somewhere local to me, within 50 miles of 27248 zip code, where I can find the tub spout? Also does this tub spout come in Brushed Nickel?
Asked by: Hamp
Hi Hamp, Thank you for your question. You should be able to order the RP17453SS from your local Lowes or Home Depot. The RP17453 is not available in the bushed nickel finish. Our (SS) brilliance stainless finish is comparable to other brands brushed nickel. Thanks, Dave

Does this replace an old 600 series pull down faucet without altering the copper plumbing?

"W e are replacing our tub fixtures to nickel or stainless (Delta 600 series). Our current pull down diverter faucet is 6" long, and looks like the drawing. When the spout is removed, the copper pipe comes out 3" with an o ring on the end. The screw fixture is about 1" from the wall. Will this spout fit directly on the current copper pipe as described, i.e. is this a direct oem replacement for the old spout or will it require changeing the copper pipe.
Asked by: Mike
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP17453NN can be used on your current pipe. You should be able to remove the adapter from your new tub spout and screw it onto where the old one was placed.

Pull down diverter tub spout Stainless Steel

I am remodeling a bath in my house. I really like the pull down diverter. I am interested in SS finish and a Metal product. How ever while researching the SS only seems to be available in part RP17453 which is non-metallic(plastic), Do you have available a RP17454 is metal in the SS finish? Really not looking for plastic spout. Thanks

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

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: 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?

Replacement diverter for 4" threaded pipe

What Delta replacement tub diverter spout do I need to fit onto a 1/2 (inside diameter) copper pipe that protrudes exactly 4" from the wall? At the end of the pipe is a soldered threaded fitting on which the diverter screws directly. The combined distance from the wall of the pipe and the fitting is 4" exactly. The outside diameter of the threaded fitting looks to be about 3/4 inch. The original diverter that must be replaced is chrome metal (not plastic) and has a pull up knob on it. I don't want to cut the pipe or resolder a threaded fitting to a shorter length. thanks in advance.
