David B: The video does a great job of explaining. After watching it, I was able to replace mine in less than 15 minutes.
Elizabeth perez: thank you so much I just fix my shower that it was driving me crazy thank you again..
J Nieto: Thank you very much. I just installed a new Delta Classic.
E: Thanks, very helpful!
gary b: For some reason I couldn't get the new cartridge all the way in. I was using a delta 10347 replacement and had to use the old flat o rings instead of rounded. Then it went in. Great video.
Dawn W.: Not sure if you have a video on this already or not, but here's my other unlrelated plumbing question.... I replaced my garbage disposal 2 or 3 years ago and I swear the directions never said anything about using putty or tape, but I consistently have an occasional leak... nothing major unless I'm standing there using the sink for quite a while, but I can see mineral deposits up around the top of the outside of the disposal, so guessing that's where I need to clean and use one of those things... Gonna try and do my plumbing fixes this weekend.
Dawn W.: Better video than Delta's... loved the close up things pointed out. Trying this over the weekend. My one question on this, which I think has been answered, was did I need to add plumbers putty or tape anywhere, but it doesn't look like it at all.
Narrator007: Thanks for the very helpful video. I'm sure it will work wonders for me as soon as I can get my shower handle's screw to turn. For some reason it completely locked in place.
I have heard others recommend either heat, vinegar or WD/40 to loosen the screw, but I don't own a hair dryer or have either of those two substances on hand. Before I go out to buy some, is there any other method you would recommend, or additional advice?
Dreambigbeats: i did everything and put it back the same way but when i turn the water back on, the water is still runing like its not off and when i try to turn it, it turns it on more.
scaronscar: So I replaced my cartridge and it still is dripping do I need to replace the valve...?? Iv tried cleaning it and running the water we also have a new water heater so I shouldn't be getting a lot of debris
David Garbrick: Thanks Pluminator for taking the time to do these videos sharing your knowledge. It has helped me and I'm sure many others. God Bless.
maryaq3: I'm a 57 yr. old woman, and I'm canceling my plumbers appt., this was a great video, easy to follow. Thanks!!
James McClure: Hi Plumbinator, after replacing the cartridge, I am getting no flow from the shower head. I removed the cartridge and verified that water is coming through the pipes when there is no cartridge. However when I have the cartridge installed I get no flow. When I turn the water off and attempt to remove the nut again, there is a large amount of air/water pressure ... to the point that the cartridge shoots out once I get the nut loose enough. The cartridge actually split into two... the blue part and the gray part, so now I have no idea which variant is the correct way to put them back together. I've tried all 4 combinations... and still nothing's working. Any ideas? Wish it was as simple as your video and the other's make it look. I called Delta, and they are shipping a new cartridge to me; however I'm wondering if something else is now the issue. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.
mardz84: We replaced cartridge but the faucet runs like if we have it on. We thought it was because we needed to get the handle so we went out and bought one. Still the water won't turn off if when we turn the handle up or down. My brother said we have the wrong cartridge. According to him we got the cartridge that only regulates the temperature not the one that does both (shuts the bath faucet off and regulates temperature) but the guy at the plumbing store sold us this part. Our Delta is 1400 series and it was installed in 2005 or before so we had to go to a plumbing store to get it. Any ideas why we can't turn off the faucet. It's so frustrating
Alex Figueroa: Looks easy enough but lets see if its that easy for me. Thanks for your video!! :-)
Delstar: Do i have to close main water valve or i can change cartridge when main is on ? I know its gonna be pressure and wet but i don't care if its possible. The thing is i don't have easy access to main shot off valve and easier is change it without close valve.
John Darrell: Thank You , Your video was real informative for me.
Mars Bars: My Father hired some bum jack of all trades. (Hes a know it all douche) He installed the cartridge reversed. He was going to charge for an error he did. I shut the water off, removed the handle, removed the cartridge, reassemble and increased hot water temperature. Confronted the douche and hes in denial. THANK YOU @trueplumbinator for making this useful video. I know nothing of the plumbing trade. All it takes is common sense and a positive attitude to fix something this simple. Much Props to you sir. CHEERS
sarah mceleney: do you have to shut off the water to do this
Josue Breton: Thanks. Spent 30 minutes at Lowes and another 35 at Home Depot waiting on someone to explain this to me. I left when I saw this video.
