Thank you for your question. It is possible that there are mineral deposits built up around your sleeve. We recommend soaking a towel in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water and then wrapping it around the sleeve. Let is soak overnight to remove the deposits. The cartridge should come out easily then.

Question

1700 Series Shower only, New House Mid 2008

Shower when I turn handle to far left for hot water from cold, the water pressure drops and not much hot water comes out. If I move handle back to the right pressure goes high but it is only cold water. I took off both hadles & unscrewed the screw & removed grey plastic lever and & the black round plastic part. The cartridge is grey and says #46463, Type P. There is a Brass fitting holding the cartridge in. Is there adjustments that can be done with either the grey plastic lever or the black round plastic part because both have grooves on outer edges? How does Cartridge come out? Brass won't turn. Please assess.

Thank you for your question. It sounds like your rotational limit stop may need adjusting. Included here are the instructions on how to do this. This will allow more hot water to come through your valve. The instructions are on page 9.

Question

For this cartridge, is there a maximum PSI within the house until the adapter blows?

I was informed that if the water pressure in the house is too great, the pressure could cause the springs in the adapter to blow out? Is there a rating for this cartridge assembly? My house water pressure is at 100 right now (from the street)

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # RP46463 is normally suggested to have 80 psi when using it. However, we have tested it to higher psi and 100 should be fine. You might consider getting a power reducer if the pressure is too strong for you in the shower.

Question

Assembly

I tried to install RP46463 into cartridge holder after I replace new springs and seats for water leaking.
There are two triangle projections on top of metal holder but cartridge has only one hollow to joint.
Therefore, I could not tight cartridge to holder perfectly.
Is there any way to hold tight?
Please let me know.

Hi Kiyo, Thank you for your question. It sounds like you have a cartridge with 1 square tab on the side to go with your brass valve body in the wall with 2 triangular notches. If this is correct then you have cartridge RP32104 which will not work. You would need RP46463 to match the valve in the wall. If the brass valve body in the wall has 1 square notch then you will need the RP32104 cartridge to make the repair.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Bill, Thank you for your question. The 17 series is equipped with a rotational limit stop which is where you set the high water temperature of the faucet to a level that will not scald. I have attached a link to walk you through the process of adjusting the rotational limit stop. Click on How to adjust the rotational limit stop.

Hi Anne, If your original shower is from 2006 or after the RP46463 would be the dual function cartridge that you would use. If your faucet is older than 2006 and was not dual function to begin with you will not be able to have the dual function capability. You would want to purchase a T13/14 series trim to replace what you had.

Hi JR, Thank you for your question. If your 14 Series shower is newer than February 2006 which came with the R10000 universal rough in all you will need to purchase is the T1729*-I trim. The trim will come with the new cartridge and adapters. If you faucet is older than February 2006 you will not be able to convert your existing faucet, you will have to change the rough in valve as well.

Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. The flowrate on the RP46463 cartridge is dependant on the valve choice and household water pressure. The RP46463 using the R10000-UN valve at 60 PSI will give you 6.3 gpm to the tub spout and 6.04 gpm to the showerhead.

I have an RP46463 that is leaking out of shower head constantly. No one seems to carry the RP46463 but the RP32104 is readily available. The box says compatible with 1700 series. The cartidge looks similar without the hot and cold seals part.

Hi Zac, Thank you for your question. The RP46463 and the RP32104 are not interchangeable. The RP32104 was used in our 1700 series faucets until February 2006. Our multichoice universal rough in was introduced in February 2006 and the 17 series faucets since that time have used the RP46463. You can order this cartridge from your local retailer or wholesaler that sells Delta products. You can also order online at deltafaucet.com. Here is the link.

Question

Needing new faucet

I am wanting to upgrade our shower faucets in the house. They all currently have the RP32104 cartridge installed. I am needing to know if I can replace that cartridge with any other models in order to update our shower fixtures. Was wondering if I can just install the RP46463 and buy new faucet?

Hi J.R., Thank you for your question. The RP32104 cartridge was/is used on our 1700 series faucets. That is the only cartridge that will fit your existing rough in valve. You can order one of our new 17 series trims to work with your existing rough. The new trim will ship with a RP46463 cartridge. This cartridge will not fit your existing rough, you will continue to use the existing cartridge or order a new RP32104.

Hi Fari, Thank you for your question. The rough in valve used on your 1700 series faucet is no longer available. The replacement rough that can be used with your existing trim would be the R10000. You will also need to order the RP46463 cartridge to work in the new rough in.

Question

Temperature control knob will not move independently

I have a polished nickel multi choice shower Cassidy series MultiChoice® 17 Series Tub and Shower Trim - T17497-PN

Read more: http://www.deltafaucet.com/bath/details/t17497-pn.html#ixzz3AOOdmXXx

since it was installed I have never been able to control the outer knob independently from the on off knob, they only move together and the only way to control the temperature is with the scalding rotational limit stop set to one setting and I'm stuck with this temperature. I do notice that the shower gets hotter as the pressure increases so I'm stuck with one temperature and one setting of pressure. I called the company a few times and realize it's not the rotational limit stop or how tight the outer screw is. I've taken it apart and reassembled many times.
Delta thinks I could have gotten a defective cartridge but I want to make sure that that is the problem and understand how the cartridge makes the outside temperature knob move separate from the on off knob. It is not easy to get underneath my house to turn off the water so I can't do this easily just to troubleshoot. I do have a replacement part if need be. Disappointed I spent so much money on this and it doesn't work properly but happy customer service trying to help. I don't want to hire a plumber again.

Hi ny deltacustomer, Thank you for your question. Both the volume control and temperature control knobs connect directly to the RP46463 cartridge. The volume control causes the entire cartridge to rotate to adust the water flow. The temperature knob moves only the stem of the faucet on the inside of the cartridge controlling the mix of the hot and cold water. The new cartridge and the proper installation of the handle assembly should resolve your issue.

Hi Linda, Thank you for your question. You may have the older version (pre April 2014) of the adapter that has a small screw that holds the adapter into the valve body. Once the screw is removed you should be able to pry/pull the adapter out. You will not need to reinstall the screw with the new adapter.
