So it was that time again to replace the washers and springs in one of
my Delta shower faucets. I noticed that the left side shut-off valve
(the one turned with a screw driver to shut the water so the mixing
valve can be disassembled) had a very slow leak and now that I've
turned it its gotten a little worse.
OK - so it appears that it is just another valve. The problem I have
is I have no idea what part(s) to obtain to repair it. And, of
course, the repair needs to be through the 6" hold 'cause its a
one-piece fiberglas shower.
I did look through the Delta Faucets site for parts but my model is 30
years old and I want to be sure its the right part/washer.
So, anyone who is familiar with this PLEASE provide some guidance to
which part/washer and size and any specifics on changing? I'm
assuming I'll need to shut off the house water and remove the washer
cap with a socket, replace the washer and packing then reinstall.
Am I on the right track? Thanks all and Merry Xmas (or what ever
persuasion you may be)
