maryaq3: I'm a 57 yr. old woman, and I'm canceling my plumbers appt., this was a
great video, easy to follow. Thanks!!
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

changed out. Let me know if I Could help you with anything else.
Alex Figueroa: Looks easy enough but lets see if its that easy for me. Thanks for your
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.
trueplumbinator: Thanks zahid I appreciate your comment. I appreciate you watching my
video,let me know if I can be of help in any other way
John Darrell: Thank You , Your video was real informative for me.
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.
sarah mceleney: do you have to shut off the water to do this
John White: Working on my honey-do list. This video from the "Truepluminator" on
YouTube was pretty helpful for replacing a shower value cartridge.
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.
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.
jorge guadian: Good Video. Can you explain how to set the temperature control limit on the

simple...no more dripping faucet
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

out) all went flawlessly.

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

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

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
Luis lopez: 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
