    Will reducing drop from wall valve to tub spout be an issue?

    The printed instructions from Delta says 8-18" between a faucet valve and the tub spout when using a shower head and spout diverter. Can I shrink this distance to my liking since I've capped off the shower port on my faucet valve? (i.e. tub only, no shower). I've mocked things up so that my...

    Delta Shower Cartridge Help

    Hi guys, any idea what shower cartridge I need for this Delta valve? I don’t know the model and the only thing on it is a patent number. It’s a shower only, no tub. I’d rather not take it apart until I have the cartridge to replace. Are you able to tell just by the picture? Thanks!

    Delta RP5834 tub spout installation with pictures
