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!!

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

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.

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
