|In response to Re: leaky shower faucet -- PLEASE HEEEEEELP ???|
: : I have a delta single knob shower faucet (goes from off to hotter and gets warmer as you turn it). It has been dripping from the shower head and making me crazy . . .
: : CAN ANYONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO DO TO REPLACE IT???
: : I cannot find a similar shower knob (the single from cold to hot) on any website with instructions.
: One of the really nice things about Delta is that they are easy to work on. Shut the water off,open faucet to relieve pressure, remove the handle, remove the domed cap, remove the ball assembly, remove the springs and cup washers. Pay attention to how everything comes apart. Take the ball assemby, springs and washers to the plumbing supply store and buy EXACT duplicates. Buy only Delta replacement parts. Since the ball assembly is relative inexpensive, I recommend replacing that along with the springs and washers while you have everything dissassembled. Reassemble and turn the water on.
I plan to replace every piece of rubber on the thing, are there any other parts I should consider as well?
I would rather replace it with a different model, but the tratment in my shower doesn't allow me the access to the hot/cold pipes, only the shut off valves.
