    Here is another pic of it open.
    I am wondering if a really good plumber would be able to change the entire fixture from the front? If some of you guys think so,......I may just take the opportunity...

    Here is a quick pic. It must be leaking around the handle stem, and shooting into the hollow of the handle and dripping back out when being used. It does not leak anywhere when off.

    I will take a pic this weekend to clarify the model. I also understand what you mean about that ring.

    I have good water, but it is an old fixture.
  11. This should be an easy Delta question for you guys!

    My house was built in 1992.
    I have a large shower only in the second bath that uses one of the old Delta single handle controls. I think it is a 600 series from some of the pics I have looked at,...

    Thanks guys,......that's what I figured.
    Checked the specs on my RO, and it is rated at 90 to 95% minimum on TDS removal.
