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 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.

I purchased the rp17454, from Home Depot hrough Mail order. The previous tub spout was attached by set screw.

The existing copper pipe is 1/2 ", a length from the wall to the end of the pipe is 2 5/8". 1) will I have to cut the pipe to a set length? 2) I have never sweated copper pipe, is this my only option to install this tub spout?
Asked by: D&D
Hi D&D, Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet models RP17453 and RP17454 attach to the walls in the same way. They can either be sweat onto a 1/2" copper pipe or threaded onto a 1/2" iron pipe. They both include the RP12307 adapter assembly. The only difference between the two models is the RP17453 is non-metallic and RP17454 is metal. Thanks. Jody

Direction Stickers

We have Delta tub spout RP17453 in our property and some of the stickers that give directions on how to use have been removed or need replacing. Can I order just the stickers?
Asked by: Mspringer
Hi Mspringer, Thank you for your question. The RP17829 and RP17472 are the stickers that inform others of how to use the RP17463. Thanks, Alexis

What replacement part will work for my tub? It has a 1inch connection as shown in the photos.

Asked by: Dave
Hi Dave, Thank you for your question. The RP12307 tub spout adapter that comes in the RP17453 tub spout is a brass fitting. Although similar we cannot verify that the pictured plastic adapter is the same size. Thanks, Dave

Will your RP17453 tub spout with pull-down diverter screw onto my threaded 1/2" copper pipe protruding 4 1/4" from the tub sidewall?

Asked by: Ken
Hi Ken, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, the pipe would be too long to install this tub spout. Some tub spout models will list "Thread into nose of spout" in the product features, such as the RP61357. However, the pipe should be 3 7/8 - 4" for these models. http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp61357.html Best regards, Jon

What diverter stub out options are available?

I want to buy a Pull Down Diverter, but I have not been able to find if a 3/4" stub out will fit., or what model will fit. I am fairly adept at plumbing but would like to forgo sizing down to a smaller fitting within the wall cavity. Does Delta offer the Pull Down Diverter tub spout with a 3/4" NPT adapter within the unit?
Asked by: C N
Hi Craig, Thank you for your question. None of our pull down tub spout diverters will fit a 3/4" stub out. We offer the U1075-PK and U1011-PK which are pull up style of diverters that will thread onto a 3/4" IPS nipple. Thanks, Dave

Will this fit 1 inch

The pipe my prior diverter came off of has a 1 inch nipple, will this model fit?
Asked by: Tony
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP17453 is sweat onto 1/2″ C.W.T. or thread onto 1/2″ IPS. You will need to get an adapter to use this tub spout.

How to remove delta tub spout - pull down diverter

It seems ro have a set screw hole in the bottom however there is no set screw to be found. I took a picture of the bottom screw hole and see nothing in there. The spout It isnt s rewing off either. Please help.
Asked by: Mrs. Fix it
Hi Mrs. Fix it, Thank you for reaching out. The hole on the bottom of the spout is a weep hole and does not contain a set screw. This tub spout threads onto an adapter, which connects to 1/2" IPS or sweats onto 1/2" copper. If it seems stuck, there may be sealant between the wall and spout that is preventing it from turning. Best regards, Jon

4" copper pipe. Will this work?

Hi, The measurement of the copper pipe from the finished wall to end of the nipple is exactly 4". Will this spout fit? I'm assuming my setup is standard and many people have the same setup. If this spout won't fit, what are my options for a"pull down diverter" style tub spout? Thanks!
Asked by: Allen
Dear Allen, Thank you for your inquiry! This Delta Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout RP17453 is designed to 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. https://www.deltafaucet.com/files/live/sites/delta/files/customer-service/FAQs/Tub%20spout%20install.pdf Best regards, Tanya

I need to replace just the diverter valve chrome piece

Does that piece have a threaded hole about 1-1/4 inches in diameter so I can install it in the existing copper part?
Asked by: Fred
Hi Fred, Thank you for your question. The RP17453 tub spout will come with a new RP12307 adapter included, but you should be able to thread the spout onto your existing piece if you are replacing the same item. Thanks, Dave

The divergent on my spout RP17453 gets stuck in both positions and doesn’t pop back up when water is off - can it be fixed or does it need to be replaced - the diverted can forceably be pulled or pushed into both positions 

Asked by: Matt
Hi, Matt. Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your Delta diverter tub spout assembly. If the diverter is stuck, we would recommend to replace the whole tub spout assembly. Best Regards, Rosanna

I have a Delta #RP17463 chrome tub spout with diverter on my tub now. It is 20!years old but rarely used. I want to change it to stainless. There is no need for a diverter since there is no shower. What non-diverter tub spout would you recommend?

Asked by: Rodwil
Thank you for your question, Rodwil! The RP17453 tub spout is a sweat onto 1/2" C.W.T. or thread onto 1/2" IPS installation, however, I will include a link below to all of our non-diverting tub spouts for reference. https://www.deltafaucet.com/search-results?searchTerm=non-diverter Best regards, Edward

Delta RP17454 Nipple Length?

The instructions say the pipe should extend from 1/2 to 1 1/4 from the finished wall. My pipe is about 1 5/8 from the wall. It appears to work fine and I can see no leaks. There was plenty of length inside the spout for the o-ring to still seat. Is this acceptable or could there be issues that I am not seeing? Thanks

Pull down diverter spout

I have a pull down diverter spout similar to delta models RP17453 and RP17454. Its lendth is 6 1/8". The threads are at the base of spout (the end that goes against the wall) and the thread opening is 1 1/4". The iron pipe pertudes 2 3/16" from the wall. The threads are at the base of the pipe. Are these the right models for my needs? Thanks. George
Asked by: George
Thank you for your question. The only difference between Delta Faucet model # RP17453 and RP17454 is that RP17453 is non-metallic and RP17454 is metal. You will need a 1/2 inch pipe for installation of either one of these models.

I already have the threaded adapter on my pipe. I assume it has been sweated on as it will not turn. Will this fit with the adapter that is threaded at the back with an o ring in the front?

Asked by: Jeff
Hello Jeff, Thank you for your question! This tub spout comes with the RP12307 adapter. If you already have this adapter installed, simply unscrew the included adapter and screw on the spout. https://www.deltafaucet.com/parts-product-detail?modelNumber=RP12307 Best regards, Tanya
