Installation Information


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect replacement I read the information on my faucet and the leaking and it told me to order two parts which I found on your website. They fit perfectly and fixed the problem without the plumber.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Parts for Delta Faucet This plus the RP4993 seals fixed the leaking problem. Seals from the local big box home improvement store did not. Evidently it pays to get actual parts from the manufacturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great part Through no fault of Delta, the hard water here was stuck to the old ball assembly & also tore up the original valve seats

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't help Leaky faucet, changed the RP70 ball and the RP4993 springs/seats, and it still leaks just as bad. There's nothing else to change!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wrong Item! This was the second of two attempts to find a replacement part for a Delta faucet, specifically the ball assembly. Unfortunately the Delta folks have modified their parts on the Delta faucet but haven't changed the number of the faucet. The 2005 version of the faucet I purchased is not the same interior parts of the current model. It would have been so much easier for Delta to change the number of the faucet - even with some added letters after the 203 or whatever. So I gave up!

I have a Delta shower faucet which came with the house ( built in 1991-92). (Apparently Delta series 600). It does not control the water temp very well. What needs to be replaced to get it working normally. ? Is there a cartridge or ?, Part # ?

Asked by: Gopal
Hi Gopal, Thank you for your inquiry! The Delta 600 series faucets are not designed with cartridge assembly, it has a ball assembly. The internal parts are seats and springs, ball assembly and cam and packing. None of these parts controls the temperature. Best regards, Tanya

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.

Asked by: Dennis49
Hello Dennis, 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. https://media.deltafaucet.com/PartsDiagram/100_400_70701__Rev_B.pdf Best regards, Tanya

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. 

Asked by: Richard
Hi, Richard! 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. Best Regards, Rosanna

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?
Asked by: Colleen
Hi Colleen, 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. http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp17451.html Best regards, Jon

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?
Asked by: Absco
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. Best regards, Brandis

My delta shower single handle faucet is dripping, what causes this?

Not sure of model # but has a part # 70 ball stem
Asked by: Darrell
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. SO 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?

Asked by: pam
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
