Where to Find Delta Faucet Model Number for Showers?

If you have a shower faucet that you don’t like, you are more than likely going to do what most people do and simply change it out for one that you do like.  But what about if you actually like the shower head that you have and it for whatever reason, stops working the way that it should.?  The practical thing to do would be to go out and get another one that is the same model of faucet, or if you are feeling a little bit more adventurous, maybe try to get the part required to fix the shower faucet that has gone bad.  

No matter which of the two different options you decide to go with, you are going to need to be able to locate one thing on the shower heard, especially if it is a Delta shower faucet.  This ‘thing’ is going to be very important if you are going to want to get the same exact faucet again, or the right part for the faucet.  This is, of course, going to be the model number of your Delta shower faucet.  While you may think that it will be easy to find, you may be surprised to find that it may not be as easy as you would think.

Here is what you need to know about finding the model number of your shower faucet.

Why You Need a Model Number

Shower faucets used to all work in the same way with the same internal parts, only the outer appearance and style would be different.  However, that has since changed, as you are going to have many different styles and variances available for you to choose from now a day.  For example, you can find a shower head that has a variance in the stem size, the size of the valves that it uses, and even the splines that are used.  It is going to be because of this that you will need to know how to find the model number of your shower faucet before you are able to fix or replace it with the same one.  

How to Find the Model Number of Your Delta Shower Faucet

The first part of identifying the model number of your shower faucet is going to be to determine what brand it is.  In this case, since you are going to be looking for the model number of your Delta shower faucet, it is going to be safe to say that the brand of your shower faucet will be Delta.  But so you know, most shower faucets are going to have their brand name marked somewhere on them, so you can always just look for that.

As for the model number, that is normally going to be marked somewhere on the faucet as well, meaning that you should be able to get the Delta shower faucet model number right from the actual shower faucet.  This is more than likely going to be the case when it comes to your Delta shower faucet.

However, for whatever reason you are unable to locate the model number on the actual shower faucet, all is not lost.  You can still get the model number; it is just going to take you a few extra steps.

For this method of finding the shower faucet model number, you are going to need to take the shower head off of the shower.  This means you will want to turn off the water supply and undo the shower head from the stem or wall (how to do this will depend upon the type of shower faucet you are using, so be sure to reference the directions when doing this step).  Next, all you need to do is measure the length of the splines, as well as how many of them there are.  As soon as you have this information recorded, you can then do a quick internet search for a cartridge identification chart, which will allow you to compare your shower faucets spline length and number, essentially letting you find the model number of your faucet.

When it comes to repairing your shower faucet, it shouldn’t be very hard to do.  Most of the time, you will have the model numbers of the faucet right there on the actual faucet, making it a pretty easy task for you to complete.  But even if you are unable to find the model number on the faucet, simply follow the steps outlined above and you will be able to find the model number that you are searching for.
