Calling all plumbers, two Delta questions
I'm a bit rusty in my plumbing skills--I just installed a Delta 2522 in one of my apartments. Looks like a cheese ball with those dumb cheapo handles. I call the local vendor to ask for better lever handles (glad to pay) and he says 'can't do the better handles like in the past'. I'm having a hard time fathoming that. I can't get the lever style handles anymore?
Secondly, in another unit, I had a good old fashioned night mare with a Delta 1300 series t/s valve, about 8 or so years old. I reinstalled a 40 gal wh and somehow the t/s valve objected--the water volume was about 1/2, maybe less. I figure it's the cartridge. Stupid cartridge won't come out, I've never seen this. It took me 45 minute to excavate the cartridge out--- in pieces. i put a new one in and same thing. I call Delta and they say something got into the valve body or pipe that leads to the spout. Bad day i guess. Anyone had stuck cartridge issues? Anyone seen the half-flow issues? I need to go back and 'back flush' the spout pipe.
Thanks, Gary, at least the card in my wallet says i'm a master plumber
