Hey thanks for resurrecting this thread (pun?, haha)!!!

So after painting, updating all cabinet hardware, vanity lighting, faucets, and bathroom accessories (towel bar, toilet tissue holder, etc...) I am stumped on the tub shower faucet!

I spoke with Delta and they informed me that we could use in 13/14 series. So we purchased a porter series from plumbingdepot and i got the shower head/pipe on, valve cover and handle. Then I pull off the old faucet to have the same adapter as above!

I e-mailed I picture to Delta and they replied back "I apologize for the inconvenience you are having. However, we do have many different tubs spouts that are Venetian bronze and will fit this adapter. The tub spouts can be viewed on our website at Once you are there, in the top right hand corner in the search bar, you will type "tub spouts". When the next page comes up, there will be multiple tabs at the top. You will click on the repair parts tab. From there you can view the numerous different tub spouts that are available. To view whether the tub spouts fit onto your existing adapter, under product features and benefits it will say "Sweat onto 1/2? C.W.T. or thread onto 1/2? IPS"."

My question is then will all delta faucets have that plastic piece in the back?! The Porter series did not! I have never sweated or soldered....

Yeah Delta just confirmed that pretty much any 14 series faucet comes with the faucet and the adapter! We purchased the PORTER series from delta which delta confessed that was the ONLY ONE that didn't use the adapter....weird.

So hopefully within the next week I'll go to local store and just open one up in store and look at it.

after visiting home depot, reno depot, and any other depot I can think of and try to explain the problem to clueless plumb "assistance people" at these stores I came across this chatroom! Now I know I need to buy a new one and remove the brass adapter from the new spout (I still need to figure that part out) and then attach the new spout to the old soldered brass that is sticking out of the copper pipe... anyhow I found a temporary solution... to get the water pressure again of the shower head and to stop the lick and the annoying noise coming of the diverter when not working properly.
Got a cork from a bottle of wine left over from the night before, cut a 1-2 mm slice and push it against the diverter at the end of the spout! problem solved!
no more noise, water pressure back! cannot get easier than that
