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.

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.

The inside of the tub faucet I am replacing has a piece of plastic that slips onto the pipe. I need to match the current faucet that is 20+ years. How can I see the inside or figure out if this faucet will work?

Asked by: Blonde Hockey Fan
Hi, Blonde Hockey Fan! Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have a photograph of the inside of the Delta RP17453SS tub spout assembly. However, the tub spout sweats onto a 1/2" C.W.T or threads onto 1/2" IPS nipple. The RP12307 adapter assembly is included for installation. Best Regards, Rosanna

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?
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. Best regards, Tanya

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

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
Asked by: LCW
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. Best regards, Brandis

Want to replace similar 25 year old gold product with stainless. RP17453SS advertised as stainless keep reading of plastic, is the spout actually ss or plastic?

Asked by: GT71
Thank you for your question, GT71! RP17453SS is non-metallic with a Stainless Steel painted finish. We offer the same type of spout in metal as part number RP17454. This is the only other pull down metallic spout however, and it is only offered in Chrome, Polished Brass or White. We do have other options for metal tub spouts but please know that all Delta products will meet the same exacting standard and will come with a Lifetime Limited Warranty. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP17454 Best regards, Edward

What is the construction of the RP17453SS tub spout?  Is it plastic, plastic with a metal shell, or zinc (ZAMAK) casting?  I presume it mounts using the RP12307 adapter.

Asked by: BenB
Thank you for your question, BenB! This tub spout is non-metallic and does use the RP12307 brass adapter. Best regards, Jon

Is this faucet only for shower purposes or can I also take a bath? If so how to I stop the tub? 

Asked by: Kayy
Thank you for question, Kayy! This diverting tub spout can be used in a tub and shower installation. The diverter on the tub spout pulls down to direct the water to the shower head. You will need to refer to the manufacture of your tub however the drain is typically a standard size and should work with our bath waste assembly RP393. https://www.deltafaucet.com/bathroom/product/RP393 Best regards, Edward

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?
Asked by: Dan
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. Best regards, Brandis
