How do you deliming tub spout for pull-down diverter?
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?
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?
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.

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
Hi LCW, Thank you for your question!
We do not manufacture the RP17454 pull down tub spout in the Stainless Steel finish. We do offer pull up diverter models that are metal in the Stainless finish such as the RP48718SS and RP64721SS.

Is there a trim kit for the 1600 series in SS finish
I just purchased the RP17453SS and now I'm looking for the trim kit to go with it. Is there a part number that will work for the 1600 series?
Hi You have our Delta 1600 series tub/shower faucet. Unfortunately, the 1600 series has been discontinued since " 1994" and there are no current trims to fit the unit in the Stainless Steel finish. You will have to replace the entire unit and valve body behind your wall.

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)
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
