Paul Allen: Thanks for sharing. My home is nearly 50 years old and I wasn't sure how
old the faucet was but a healthy dose of WD-40 finally got the cartridge
nut to come loose. After a trip to two different stores I found out that
mine was a 1500 series and needed a 1700 series with an adapter.
jorge guadian: Good Video. Can you explain how to set the temperature control limit on the
Zahid Khan: great video! ill give it a try once the part comes in from Delta this
Tamara Widrick: Very helpful! Thanks !!!

Myr381: Thanks for getting back to me but i have think it is 1700. i was able to
get allen screw out from the handle but the handIe won't come off to get to
the cartridge. Help!!!!!!!
luvlydymepiece: helpful and simple...but now the water will not turn off when i turn it to
off position. any suggestions?
Xanthe Emerick: You tutorial is excellent. I got as far as removing the excussion and the
trim plate. It looks like the cartridge is within the next piece...doesn't
appear to have a nut to unscrew. I'm unsure what to do next? I also can't
seem to find the model number anywhere to get the new cartridge from Delta.
Can you help?
Darrell Pacheco: just installed this but when i turned on the water the valve would not turn
off. when working with the catridge it seperted in two it did go back
together but i wonder if i ddnt put it back together right
Chris Ongoing: Hi. I have no hot water on the shower but there's hot water in the sink. If
i change this would that fix the problem?
lhlopez1114: Thank you for posting. I followed your instructions and with the exception
of the lower cartridge being stuck in ( I used two screwdrivers to get it
out) all went flawlessly.
isolabella: Thanks to your video, I was able to do this myself in under five minutes.
No more trickling water. Yay!

Bob Solberg: Mr.Trueplumbinator - Just a quick note of thanks for the instructive video
and even more importantly your response to my question. I was quite franlky
surprised to get a response. And yes - you were spot on with your follow-up
advice. The problem is solved and with your video and advice I saved a few
bucks. Thank you again for your help!
XDarkDioX: Your review was good. However, in the end you stated that if leaks
persisted to remove the unit and flush the hard water deposits out. Well, I
did that but what the real problem was the unit I installed was defective.
I returned the no name brand back for a Delta brand (same cost) and it
worked without a hitch. Also, I had TERRIBLE hard water deposits inside the
water value which was EXTREMELY difficult to remove the unit. I had to soak
the hell out of it with WD40 inside of the unit-almost quit
trueplumbinator: Thanks Jeff for your comment.yeah their is a difference between the blue
and gray cartridge, glad I could help
trueplumbinator: Lori did u change out cartridge itself ? It sounds like u changed springs
and rubber seals that go in valve behind cartridge. But u gotta change
cartridge also. Also sometimes dabre and hard water deposit could be in
valve also so u could try pulling cartridge and flush valve let water run
through valve for a bit. It sounds though u just changed springs and not
Scott Bird: Great video. Exactly what I needed. Changed the cartridge and shower no
longer leaks! Thanks so much for posting.

Myr381: Thank you for posting this but can these directions be applied to a single
handle shower cartridge?
Jeff Schreibman: Thanks for the video helped me a lot! Also learned pre 2006 uses blur
cartridge and post 2006 uses grey cartridge or ur pipes will shake after
allentbanas: It raised the shower head up to the point where I didn't have to crouch
down to get my hair wet. That's what I was looking for. here is the link to
it in case anyone is interested: amzn.to\18LRPOX
Michael Evans: I got all the way to where the o-ring was. it would not budge. As I turned
it the entire housing was turning and I didn't want to break the copper
pipes that attach to the back of the housing. What to do? I called a
plumber for tomorrow. I don't want to make a bad leak worse.
trueplumbinator: thank you for watching my videos,let me know if i can help with anything
lhlopez1114: Thank you!
trueplumbinator: @isolabella I'm glad u were able to use my video in ease let me know if I
can help with anything else, thanks again
trueplumbinator: thanks for watching my video im glad i was able to help you,just let me
know if you need anything else
trueplumbinator: it sounds like its the right cartridge if you got it in and it worked.the
problem seems to be the limiter,their is a limiter on the front of the
cartridge that allows you to adjust the temperature for scolding
purposes.it sounds like its not adjusted right.youl see little grooves that
limiter slides into and thats how you adjust the temp hotter or colder.it
should be a gray piece that can move around,the brass piece that handle
goes on then the limiter goes around that.i hope ths wrks,let me no
Debbie Yarbrough: you saved me 523.00 dollars! Price quoted by a plumber. I did it myself for
37.00. Thank You!!!!!!!!!!
stungbyray: Hey trueplumbinator thank u for the Video I was able to do it myself after
Watching this keep up good work Hey can u make a video on how to Flush my
50 gallon wh? It's a state Select tank, thanx
scca2k: Thanks for the help......I'm new to all of this stuff...quick and simple
instructions ...Thanks again!
TIQUI78: Thank you very much , the video was very helpfull
caveirao101: There are three holes inside the valve where the cartridge goes in. Two for
the hot water and one on top of them what is that one for?
trueplumbinator: can you send a picture to me usually what i would do is take a picture of
it and take it to plumbing supply or home depot and show them guys.usually
their is no model number on faucet or valve,their has to be a nut to be
able to get cartridge out.if you could send me a picture of it i could
probably help you with it.
trueplumbinator: @jlane64 ,well i want to thank you first for checking out my video.also it
would be nice to be able to control hot or cold seperatley.in order to do
so first thing would be you would need to get into the wall where the valve
is and cut out the single handle valve.then you would adapt the new three
handle or two handle with diverter spout to your water lines,the one issue
you would face with replacing a single to a two or three handle is covering
holes or adding holes in front wall
Josephine KELIIPIO: wow, thank-you from Hawaii. My shower valve needs replacement and I think I
can now do it on my own.
ccrio123: Hi and thank you so much for your videos! I just replaced my leaking Delta
shower valve today and couldn't have done it without your video. I have a
question, though. Everything went well except that the new cartridge did
not fit back into the grooves. I never could get them to go back in as
easily as you did on your video. The faucet is not new and is probably as
old as the house is, which was built in 1995. I ended up just putting the
ring back on and hoping that would work. Is that ok?
Peg B.: Are the Delta cartridges easy to find? I have seen in the past that Home
Depot/Lowes are not a good source of supplies for this particular brand.
With what I see you doing (best and easiest instructions by far) I honestly
think I could do it myself. I am not able to afford a plumber and have put
off getting this problem resolved for way too long.
yobentley: thanks man. Doing it tonight. Wish me luck!
