How To Remove A Delta Shower Handle


Removing a Delta shower handle can seem intimidating, but it is actually quite simple. With the right tools and a few steps, you can easily remove your Delta shower handle in no time. Here’s how to do it.

First, you’ll need to gather the right tools. You will need a Phillips head screwdriver and a flat-head screwdriver. You may also need a wrench or a pair of pliers, depending on the model of your Delta shower handle.

Next, turn off the water supply to the shower. This can be done by turning the shut-off valves located near the base of the handle. Once the water is off, open the shower to relieve any pressure in the pipes.

Now, remove the handle. You should be able to see the screws underneath the handle. Use your Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws, then lift the handle off. If the handle won’t come off, use your flat-head screwdriver to gently pry it off.

Once the handle is off, you will need to remove the trim plate. This is the plate that covers the valve stem and is usually held in place by two screws. Use your Phillips head screwdriver to remove the screws, then gently pull the trim plate off.

Now, you will need to remove the valve stem. This is the part that the handle attaches to. Use your wrench or pliers to unscrew the valve stem from the wall. Once the valve stem is removed, you can lift the handle off the wall.

Finally, you will need to install the new handle. Place the new handle onto the valve stem, then use your wrench or pliers to tighten it. Once the handle is secure, reattach the trim plate and screws, then turn the water back on. Your new Delta shower handle is now installed!

Removing a Delta shower handle doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With the right tools and a few steps, you can easily remove your Delta shower handle in no time. Good luck!
