Question

Can I use the transitional beverage faucet with an instant hot dispenser?

I already have a Waterstone Instant Hot water dispenser that I would like to use but I am considering changing my faucet to the Ashton faucet. The faucet I currently have on the instant hot does not go with the new kitchen faucet so I am considering getting the transitional beverage faucet but I am not sure if it will be okay to connect to an instant hot water dispenser. Thanks

Question

Water temperature of Leland sink

Hello. I recently purchased a Leland sink from Home Depot. I had a professional plumber install it. The sink handle is set in position 1 for the full range of motion. However, it is very difficult to create warm water. It is either cold or hot, but very challenging to find the area where the water is warm. Is there somethin that can be done to adjus te mid-point of the hanlde so that it offers more warm water opportunity? We have young children and they and when they use it, they do not have the patience to find the 2 degreess of the arc of the handle where it is warm versus the 40 degree of hot or 40 degrees of cold. I would appreciate your feedback.

Thank you for your question. When using your Leland faucet, you might try moving the limit stop to the number 2 position. This may produce the warm water that you are looking for. We also suggest checking the setting for your water heater and turning it down. We recommend having your water heater set at no hotter than 120 and it will give you a much larger range on your faucet.

easiest way I've found out is to go all the way hot....then adjust...if it's taking too long for the hot water to reach, consider having a plumber install a water heater recirculating pump

Thank you for your question. Without knowing what type of faucet you have installed in your shower, it is difficult to say which way your faucet handles should face. If you have a two handle faucet, then the handles would point out for off and point down for on.

Question

Go from 1500/1700 to 1300/1400

I see a lot of information online about how to convert from a 1300/1400 cartridge (for single control) to a 1500/1700 cartridge (for dual temperature and water pressure control). However, I do not see any information for the reverse scenario. Is there a way to convert the valve that has been used for the 1500 series cartridge to one that uses the 1400 series cartridge?

Thank you for your question. Because the valve assembly is the same size for the 1500 and 1700, it is an easy transfer to the 1700. However the valve size is different for the 1400 and cannot be used to convert a 1500 faucet to a 1400. The valve will also need to be replaced. We recommend Delta Faucet model R10000-UNBX. This can be used with the 1300/1400 series, the 1700 series, or the 17T series.

Hi Joe,

Without knowing the model number, I can only provide basic information.

Most showerheads should put out around 2.5 GPM if the incoming water pressure to the home is between 60 and 80 PSI. If you have lower water pressure, the output of the showerhead will be less.

If you have 60-80 PSI and are not getting 2.5 GPM, you may need to flush the valve.

To do this, please turn the water off to the faucet and remove the handle and internal parts under the handle. Close the shower curtain or shower door and turn the water back on. Let the water run for 30-45 seconds, turn the water off and reassemble the faucet.

Thank you for your question. Based on your first description, you have a 1300/1400 series faucet. If you have an R10000 multi-choice rough-in valve in the wall, you can upgrade to the 1700 series by ordering whichever trim you would like to choose. If you do not have the multi-choice valve in the wall, then you cannot upgrade to the 1700 series faucet without replacing the valve.

Question

Why does Shower temperature varies with water volume?

I have a series 1700 shower with the RP46463 valve. With the temp setting max and the water volume max, the shower is hot. Changing only the volume of water also changes the temp so that the water is too cold for comfort.

Why does the volume change the temperature? This is the second valve with the same result in the past 8 months. (New at that time.)

Thanks.

Thank you for your question. When moving your volume to a lower setting, if you go below 1 gpm at 80 psi, your temperature will get colder. You can lower the volume slightly and the temperature will not change as long as you don't go below 1 gallon per minute.

Hi Michael,
Thank you for your question. To have the tub valve work properly there has to be water pressure from the hot and cold connections. If your hot water is not connected to the waterheater yet that is probably the problem.

Thanks for your question. Delta Faucet model T17430 does have a rotational limit stop that may need adjusting to allow more hot water to flow through the valve. To remove the temperature knob to begin the adjustment, squeeze the sides of the knob and then with your other hand, pop it off underneath the small end.

Included here are the instructions for adjusting the rotational limit stop. The directions are on page 9.

why do both bathroom hotwater faucets leak?

We have been in our current home for about ten years and have experienced dripping faucets on the hot faucet side only several times. The water temperature is hot enough to make it uncomfortable on the hands. Just wondering if a too high temp setting also could be the cause of the leaks?

Water temp max is 125 deg.
