  1. Looking to upgrade shower to thermostatic control

    Plumbing
    Hi gang. I have an old Delta shower control (see pic) and was wondering if there was a relatively easy way to convert it to a thermostatic temperature control. Anyone know if there is any type of drop-in faucet available? I don't want to have to remodel the bathroom just to make this change...
  2. Kohler Hydrorail and Delta

    Plumbing
    I thought I would bring this over to plumbing from the kitchen and bath thread. I would like to replace a wall mounted shower head with a raincan and a handheld shower. I do not want to tear out the tiles and wall. I have a delta valve, so I am stuck with that. I discovered Kohler hydrorail...
  3. Shower Cartridge

    Plumbing
    Hi, I have a shower that needs a Cartridge replacement. The shower was installed by the previous owner and therefore I have no information on the model type and there seems to be no other indicator on the shower itself that could guide me. I have attached pictures of both the shower and...
  4. Shower leak, now pressure issues (Delta monitor)

    Plumbing
    For the past month now, my shower head has been leaking. (I know it is not the actual shower head leaking, but the system itself). So after reading forums and going to home depot, they all recommended replacing the springs and seatings on the cartridge. I turned off the water, unscrewed the...
  5. Replacing old Delta Roman Tub Faucet

    Plumbing
    Howdy! I'm trying to replace a 1989-vintage Delta roman tub faucet -- the gold spout with the plastic crystal handles. We had no trouble getting the faucet and handles off, and ordered a new Delta faucet trim kit (faucet and two handles). While the handles fit, the faucet cover is too...
  6. NOISY laminate floor with SuperSeal

    Flooring
    Hi! I'm new here (and new to DIY home improvements) and I'm having an issue with my basement flooring that I desperately need help with! After doing a lot of research we decided to put in SuperSeal in our basement before putting laminate flooring on top. Superseal is like Platon or Delta and...
  7. Delta kitchen faucet is leaking under the sink

    Plumbing
    I have a Delta pull out kitchen faucet that had been dripping for several weeks. Today I bought the Single Handle repair kit from Home Depot to replace the internal parts (i.e., rubber seats, springs, cam assembly). After replacing the parts, the faucet now leaks under the sink. I thought I...

    Building & Construction
    Hello, This is my first post to DIY Chatroom. I am looking forward to hearing some informed opinions on my questions. I have a split-level 1979 raised bungalow home in cold Quebec that I am doing a lot of energy-efficiency retrofits to. One problem area was the ground level entry room that led...
  9. No flow from Delta Monitor 1400 faucet after reinstallation

    Plumbing
    Hey, I've been struggling with my tub/shower faucet for a couple weeks now and was hoping someone could solve this frustrating problem. I took apart my Delta Monitor 1400 faucet because we've been losing water pressure in just the tub of our upstairs bathroom; there has been no change with the...
  10. Rough in kit?

    Plumbing
    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum, and need some help. I want to get a trim kit to replace the delta fixtures I currently have in my tub/shower. I noticed that most all the kits I've looked at say "rough in valve required" my question is, if I have delta brand in there already, do I need to buy...
  11. Shower not getting hot enough

    Plumbing
    Thanks for taking the time to view my questions. I have a shower in my master bathroom that just isn't getting hot enough. The water in the sink is hot enough so I don't think it's the water heater. It's a shower only unit and the fixtures are Delta. The handle starts off at about 6 O'clock...
