    Default Delta RP17453 Single spout tub diverter

    I was having an issue with my apartment shower diverter. Its a tub spout diverter. Upon removal I find that the spout is connected to the water supply via a 1" diameter fitting that is about 2" long. The fitting (or water line come from the wall) has about a 1/4 inch threaded section closest to the wall then at the end that is inserted into the diverter has a rubber gasket. This fitting is inserted into a plastic (nylon?) insert within the diverter itself. Upon searching for a replacement i can only find 1/2" diameter to 3/4" diameter kits. I cannot find any diverters with the 1" threaded connector. Any insight on where to find a replacement would be appreciated.

    Thanks from a home tinkerer.

    It sounds like a Delta tub spout with diverter.
    They don't sell those at the big box as replacements, but it's what I like to use.

    If it is a Delta diverter call 1-800-345-DELT and they will replace it.

    Thanks guys. I will snap a picture of it but there were no markings from what I could see. The spout was poorly made with the inner section which blocks the water when the lever is pulled up was made of plastic not all metal. This portion was what was first bent out of shape allowing the water to flow out and then ultimately broke off when I tried to pry it back in place. I will check again for markings.

    we would like to see a picture, but based on your description.. it IS a DELTA. NO OTHER product even close to that. It is the best diverter spout available, also the easiest to replace. Diverter spouts go bad, and I prefer a diverter on the valve body, but there are very few options anymore for that. Just replace the spout when needed.
