Is there a similar spout that is metal and not plastic. I need the rubbed oil bronze color.
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not have similar Traditional-Style tub spout assemblies in the Oil Rubbed Bronze finish that are metallic. We do have the RP81273OB, RP61357OB, and RP64721OB tub spouts that are Oil Rubbed Bronze.

My shower/bath diverter has become ineffective. RP34357
can I just install a spout with the pull up diverter by screwing off the old broken spout and screwing the new one onto the existing threaded copper pipe. Or is some actual plumbing skill needed.
When the diverter is pulled up, only about 25% of the flow is diverted to the shower.
Hi Bruce, Thank you for your question. The RP34357 tub spout threads directly onto a 1/2" threaded pipe or fitting at the back of the spout. You should be able to unscrew the spout and replace.

Can I get installation instructions for this tub spout, please
I have this spout, and during a remodel the outer (chrome) part of the spout was taken off, leaving the plastic inner spout connected, coming through the tub wall. Now, I cannot figure how to reconnect the outer spout. I lost the installation instructions during the remodel, can you provide them?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP34357 can either be sweat onto a copper pipe or threaded onto an iron pipe. Included here is a link to the instructions for installing your tub spout. The instructions are on page 12 of the booklet.

Does this spout have a flow restrictor in it? Customer is complaining about flow rate at tub spout is slow
Thank you for your question. At 60 PSI, the RP34357 Victorian tub faucet will run at 5.6 gallons per minute. This spout does not have a flow restrictor in it. We would advised flushing the unit, if your getting a low or slow flow.

From reading previous questions and answers. How do you sweat onto a half inch pipe? Are there instructions with the replacement piece on sweating? The installer left about 2" of copper pipe in front of the 1" adapter.
Thank you for your question, Dean! This tub spout does install either by sweating onto 1/2" C.W.T. or threading onto 1/2" IPS. The adapter itself will not come with instructions on sweating or soldering as we recommend a professional for this type of installation. Tubing should be cut with a tubing cutter 2-4" from the finished wall. When brazing on the adapter, you will need to remove the external o-ring first and let the brass cool down prior to restoring this ring. If you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us directly.
Best regards, Edward
