Delta showerer dripping / leaks
I have several delta monitors in my home. It was built in 2005. Which Cartridge will fit my valve body?
Hi Larry, Thank you for your question. The cartridge used in a 1300/1400 series faucet in 2005 would be the RP19804. The cartridge has a white or gray top and a blue bottom.

Is the Ceramic Cartridge compatible with all the 13/14 trims
I have Talbott 14290 for example, when the time comes to replace the cartridge can I used the ceramic one instead? Also is there an equivalent ceramic cartridge for the 17 series trims?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP74236 is only for the 1300/1400 series. It can be switched out in any 1300/1400 series faucet. We do not manufacture a ceramic cartridge for the 1700 series.

Do you have to use the ceramic cartridge is this the only option for this cartridge?
If valve leaking do we replace valve and cartridge. Also what other parts do we need to order if valve leaking? Can we do this without cutting through backside of wall to fix if valve leaking?
Hi Lori, Thank you for your question. Replacing the cartridge should stop the leak in a 13/14 series faucet. The non ceramic equivalent to the RP74236 cartridge is the RP46074. The cartridge can be replaced through the front of the faucet. There is no need to cut into the wall to access the valve body. Here is a link to the How to Replace a Delta Tub or Shower Cartridge video:

On the 13/14 series valve can the hot and cold be reversed without changing the piping?
Bought a house with new shower with Delta MultiChoice 13/14 series and the hot and cold are reversed. Is there a way to reverse this in the valve without changing the piping?
Thank you for your question. To reverse the hot and cold, remove the cartridge, flip it over and reinstall. The hot and cold supplies will then be reversed.

I have a leaking shower valve
My delta shower valve is leaking, but I can't not replace the cartridge. My shower valve is 1400 series installed before 2000, however, the part I found in stores were all for 1300/1400 series after 2005, which is longer and does not fit in the switch body. Can someone help me to locate the part?
Hi Northern, We are sorry that you are experiencing a problem with your faucet. Your 1400 series shower should take the RP19804 cartridge. You can order this cartridge from your local retailer or wholesaler that sells Delta products. The cartridge is also available online at deltafaucet.com.

Shower lever stops
I had a new shower installed about 5 years ago and the box I was left with says it is in the Monitor 1400 series so I believe it would take this cartridge (RP74236). My problem is that the handle has (suddenly) stopped turning all the way over to the "cold end" and now has a hard stop at about 1/3 of the way (a bit hot). Do I need to replace the whole cartridge or is this likely to be something else? If so, what part number?
Thank you for your question. It sounds like the Rotational Limit Stop needs to be adjusted on your cartridge. I have included the link to our how-to video on adjusting this.

Which components are ceramic?
The RP4993 of other valves are rubber. Is this part ceramic in this valve?
Thank you for your question. The plate and seats are ceramic. The RP46074 has a metal plate and rubber seats (RP4993).

i am hoping to use the T14251 outdoors
want to use in an outdoor shower on an exterior wall of a heated space. Shower is covered and surrounded so minimum sun and rain/snow exposure. But it is obviously exposed to temp extremes. Can you use the T14251. Is Ceramic cartridge preferred. I will winterize the entire shower but could also pull the cartridge if that helps.
Thank you for your question. The T14251 could be installed outside if fully winterized. The ceramic RP74236 is designed to be longer lasting in applications with harder water or more debris. However, the pressure balance and temperature control aspects are the same as the included RP46074 cartridge.
