Is there more than one type of ball used in Delta single handle kitchen faucets? I have 400 with sprayer, installed in 1990's. Most recently put in kit with #70 ball, now won't quite shut off all the way. Old ball had extra hole not in #70.
Thank you for your inquiry! Yes, the ball assembly RP70 was the only ball manufactured for our older Delta single handle kitchen faucets. If your faucet is leaking, you would need to replace the RP4993 seats/springs.

I have a single handle kitchen faucet model A112 18 1M. Please advise as to which ball assembly is required for repair. RP70, RP212, or something else? Many thanks.
Thank you for your question. If your kitchen faucet has a metal lever handle, you will want to use an RP70 ball assembly. If your faucet has a plastic knob (ball-type) handle, we recommend to use RP212 ball assembly.

Replacement acrylic knob
I have a shower with this ball assembly, but the knob broke and I need a replacement. The knob is pushed down to turn off, up to turn on and left/right for hot/cold. Where can I replace it...or if it's not available, what do I need to do?
Thank you for your question. Based on your description you have a 600 series model, which would take the RP17451 knob handle. The knob handle will fit onto an RP212 ball assembly.

Are there replacement lever handles for the RP70 ball assembly style shower valve?
If so, can you tell me a replacement part number that would work?
Hi Absco, Thank you for your feedback!
The 600 series you described has been discontinued. Currently we carry just the RP17443 lever for the 600 series.

My delta shower single handle faucet is dripping, what causes this?
Not sure of model # but has a part # 70 ball stem
I was able to use the original ball. In the rebuild kit, AT FIRST I tried the short springs, and Short washers.
This Is What happened to me, drip drip drip.
I used the short springs from the kit. And the TALL WASHERS. !
Problem solved, it has been 2 weeks and NO leaks.

I have the single handle shower faucet with ball control. Can I change this system to the one that use cartrige?
Hi Pam, Thank you for your question!
By your description it sounds like you have a 600 series. We only manufacture a renovation kit RP54870 for your unit. The kit come in Chrome, Brilliance Stainless Steel or Venetian Bronze. There is no cartridge or cartridge trim kit that would fit into your valve body. You would have to replace the valve and plumbing in your wall to switch.
Best regards, Brandis

Entire cartridge or just the ball valve?
The instructions that came with the Cicero kitchen faucet (Model 468-SD-DST) indicate that to fix a leak from the faucet I need to replace the valve cartridge (part # 3 in the diagram). This site says to replace only the ball valve. Which is correct?
Thank you for your question! The 468-SD-DST (manufactured after September 2008) will take the RP50587 cartridge assembly.
The 468-SD (non-DST) uses an RP70 ball. However, the RP4993 seats and springs and the RP61 cam assembly will resolve most leaks.
