Hi Penny,

Thank you for your question! This stem will work on both the hot and cold side valve. You will simply need to orient the stem the same way that the original was installed.

Question

Which stem for a 20 year old delex roman tub faucet?

I saw this briefly on a service call, and I thought the stems looked bigger than standard delex stems. I didn't pull one out.
Does this take a RP25513 or something different?

I may have bee looking at the top of stem extensions, hence my confusion.

Hi plumberjeff,

Thank you for your question! Delex faucets can use the RP25513 stem units, however the RP1740 stem is preferred for models with knob handles and/or that have a screw going into the top of the stem.

Hi Aarcool, Thank you for your question. You are correct that you will want to change out the stem assemblies, seats, and springs to stop a dripping faucet. The model 3530-LHP uses the RP25513 stem assembly and RP4993 seats and springs. Here is a link to the parts break down for the model 3530 to help with your repair.

Question

Bathroom sink, lever style, Leaking Faucet, still leaking after replacing RP24096 (hot or cold),

My bathroom sink with the lever style handles has a steady stream leak. I replaced the same cartridge in both hot and cold sides since this part is designed for both sides. After replacing both hot and cold cartridges the leak continues.

Did I do something wrong?

Hi Jim, Thank you for your question. We recommend replacing the RP4993 seats and springs in addition to the RP24096 stem assembly to stop a leak. The seats and springs are located directly underneath the stem assemblies in the valve body and help create the seal to shut off the water.

Hi Hoy, The RP24096 and the RP25513 are the same stem unit assembly accept that the RP25513 has 1/4 stop included that the RP24096 does not. This stop restricts the handle movement to 90 degrees on lever style handles. The other similar stem unit assembly is the RP1740 that is used with knob style handles that screw into the top of the stem.

Hi Lee, Thank you for your question. The spring should be inserted with the larger side down and the smaller/tapered side facing out. The rubber seat will cover the tapered end of the spring. If you put the seat and spring together on the end of an allen wrench you can position them in the opening in the valve body, slide them off, and push them into place. They should stay far enough in the valve body for you to install the stem assembly. Make sure to always use genuine Delta parts in your faucet as failing to do so will void the product warranty.

Question

Do all of your lever handles use the set screw that uses a 3/32" hex bit?

I am not sure which model faucet I have, but it is about 11 years old and it appears to be like the 3583 series with lever handles that have the polished brass ends. I need to replace the cartridges, but want to be sure that I have the right tool so that I don't round off the hex set screw with the wrong size allen wrench.

Hi Jack, Thank you for your question. The entire end valve assembly is moving. You will need to tighten the nut that is underneath the sink on the threaded shank of the valve. Tightening this nut should hold the faucet to the countertop. Make sure to align the valve correctly before you tighten the nut.

Hi Pat, Installing the RP24096 is done above the sink. You will need to shut off the water supply to the faucet first. The stem unit assembly is accessed by removing the handle and the bonnet nut holding the stem in place.

Hi Spifi, Thank you for your question. The RP1740 stem assembly has a plastic stem and body and is used with faucets that generally have knob style handles that attach with a screw down through the handle and stem assembly. The RP24096 has a plastic body and a metal stem. This stem assembly is usually used on faucets with lever style handles that attach with a set screw from the side. The RP25513 is the same as the RP24096 except it also comes with 1/4 stops that limit the handle motion to 90 degrees.
The model 3544 should use the RP25513.

Hi lmnewcomb, Thank you for your question. The hot and cold sides of your faucet use the same cartridge. The 1/4 stop portion of the cartridge is placed to the back on the cold stem and to the front on the hot stem. Please use the attached parts breakdown to verify that your stem assemblies and 1/4 stops are positioned correctly. The cartridge position will be the same on a 4" center set or a widespread 2 handle faucet.

Dave
