Installation Information


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stops The Drip More often than not, it's the seats and not the stem that needs replacing when the faucet has a drip. Make sure to use genuine Delta seats, I have never had luck with the generic ones. Let me give you a little tip for the seat replacement, take a wood pencil and insert the pointed end into the seat, give it a half turn or so and it will stick to the pencil so you can easily remove it. Install the new one again using the pencil.

Do you recommend using faucet grease on seats when replacing par RP4993?

Asked by: CUrsell
Thank you for your question, CUrsell! The seats will come pre-lubricated from the factory. We do not recommend using any further lubrication as many products can actually damage these parts. Best regards, Edward

How do you install seats and springs (part RP4993) in a Delta model 2530 two handle faucet?

Asked by: rbruha44
Hello Rbruha44, Thank you for your question. Here are the instructions for installing a new set of seats and springs in your faucet: First shut off the water supply to the faucet. Next remove the faucet handles. A Phillips head screw located below the plastic cap on top of the handle holds on knob handles. Pry off the plastic cap with a butter knife or a small screwdriver to gain access to the Phillips head screw. For lever handles, you should find either an exposed Phillips head screw on the top of the handle or, on newer faucets, a set screw on the side of the handle below the lever. The set screw can be loosened with a 3/32" Allen wrench. Unscrew the bonnet nut. You will then be able to pull the stem unit assembly out of the valve body. The seat and spring will also just lift out of the valve body. You may also need to flush out the valve body. Place a pitcher or bucket upside down over the open valve and turn the water back on full strength for 5 to 10 seconds. Do this on both the hot and cold sides. After the allotted time, turn the water off. The wide part of the new spring goes down into the hole first. The larger opened side of the new seat then fits down over the narrow part of the spring and also goes down into the hole. Reinstall the stem units, bonnet nuts and handles in the reverse order. Best regards, Tanya

how do I replace the seats & springs in 13/14 series? Seat & spring part # is RP4993. Thank You!

Asked by: johnny K1
Thank you for your question, johnny K1! Before you begin this repair, please make sure that the water supply is shut off to the unit, room or home. You can then remove the handle by popping off the cover and removing the screw with an allen wrench, either 3/32" or 1/8". Next, unscrew the bonnet and pull out the stem unit. You can then use a pencil or Allen wrench to scoop out the seats and springs. Reassemble in the reverse order, making sure the spring goes into the valve with the wider end first and the seat on the smaller end. https://www.deltafaucet.com/video-gallery/video-page-1?videoId=O-pCJdvD4oc Best regards, Edward

does the small end of the spring in the RP4993 go in the opening first, or does the larger end go in first.

Asked by: morgan
Hi, morgan! Thank you for your question. The spring goes into the valve bigger bottom first, like a pyramid shape. The seat gets seated on the top of the smaller end. Best Regards, Rosanna

What shape is the bottom side of these seats? I have a 600 series old, and having issue finding exact match. My old ones look a bit concave.

Asked by: Dee m
Dear Dee m, Thank you for your question. The RP4993 should be installed with the (open) cupped end of the black rubber seat resting on the smaller narrow end of the spring. Best regards, Tanya

Will these work with the bronze Venetian 2-handle faucet?

Asked by: TR
Thank you for your question, TR. If your model has seats and springs, these will work. However, they are not used with DST models or model 35955LF. Best regards, Jon
