Which diverter valve is better?
Is this diverter valve better to use than the U4923-PK? I want to run my showerhead and my hand shower simultaneously.
Thank you for your interest in Delta Faucet Company products. All Delta products are made to the highest quality standards so there is not one that is better than another.
The difference between these two diverters is simply how they operate. Once having a push button and one having a lever.

Specifications for Diverter Valve 4929PK
I recently bought this product and two pieces of information were not available:
- All brass construction. Does this apply to the entire product or just the valve. The handle that switches the flow appears to be chrome-covered plastic. What is the base/structural material of the handle? Is it covered under the lifetime warranty? Is it replaceable by the consumer or must the entire valve be replaced?
- The shower output and handheld output (in my use) both appear to have flow limiting orifices. The handheld output flow limiter appears to be removable by plumbers hex wrench. The shower limiter does not appear removable other than by drilling through brass. What is the GPM output for both shower and handheld? Are my assumptions regarding remove-ability correct? Would a careful drilling of the shower output to approximately the size of the input likely cause valve failure? Would it void the warranty?
Thank you for your questions. Delta Faucet model # 4929PK is a brass constructed model. However, the handle is a non-metallic composite. There is a lifetime warranty to the original owner.
The gpm on the devices that you are running through the diverter differ depending on the device. You will need to check with the specs for the device. We do not recommend drilling of any kind on our valves and it does void the warranty if drilling occurs.

Do all the 3-Way shower arm diverters have flow restrictors? My heads also have restrictors and I don't want it doubled up.
I saw a similar question asked and it was said to refer to the specs for flow levels. I cant find that information in the spec sheet or manual I downloaded.
Hi Chris R, Thank you for your question!
There is no flow restrictor in the 3 ways shower arm diverter model U4929-PK.

Does this diverter allow flow through both outlets at the same time?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet U4929-PK can be used to divert the water from the showerhead to the handheld or you can use them both at the same time.

Is there a delta shower riser that is compatible with this valve so I can use a handheld wand and riser shower on a clawfoot tub?
3-Way Shower Arm Diverter for Hand Shower
Thank you for your question. We do not currently make a shower riser for a clawfoot tub. This diverter is designed for a standard shower arm.

Moved into a house with a Delta three way shower fixture. The diverter isn't working. Will the U4929 fit any models? Sounds like this is a better option than what is on there- pull or push type. Thanks
Thank you for your inquiry, Kathy! The Delta 3-Way Shower Arm Diverter U4929-PK will work with any shower arm, shower head and/or hand shower with standard 1/2"-14 NPSM threads.

What are the diameters of the 3 openings? it looks like the bigger opening is 1/2" but what about the smaller ones?
I would like to purchase this product but I am hesitant because I am not sure if the size will fit the current set up I have
Thank you for your question. All three connections have standard 1/2"-14 NPSM threads.

Will this act like a valve and completely shut off the water flow if the second outlet is capped?
I'd like to install a handheld on a second shower arm and just use this diverter like a valve to turn it on and off
Thank you for your question. The diverter, U4929-SS-PK, will not be a complete shut off. We recommend not to cap the outlet because it can cause pressure behind the diverter.
