The video on Delta,com showed exactly how to remove the old and install the new cartridge. The order process at Home Depot was efficient and easy with quick delivery.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ken Works with some modifications
After extensive internet searching, I found what I thought was the correct replacement part for our shower water valve. The Delta site said it was the one for the 1700 series, so I found it on the Home Depot site which told me it was not available in the store, only online. I ordered it and waited and when it arrived, I removed the old one. The new Delta replacement part is keyed to go into the showers plumbing and be oriented with two triangular notches, one on each side. The original used a single square notch for a key. So I filed the square notch to fit plus another one on the opposite side so the valve would seat properly. The new valve came with new seals for the water connection in the rear but they too were not usable because the size and design were incorrect. I used the old rear seals. Delta's recommended replacement is not exactly like the original but I was able to make it work.

Had a little probleb In shutoff area of valve. Was able to correct it with some rework of that area. Valve seems a little overpriced. That said it did work in the end.

It is a great product for the actual cost. The problem is that, it is plastic and if tightened too tight, the threading will easily wear out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Evrgrn66 OK. But not great
I would recommend this part - with reservations. My shower started leaking and I determined that it was the valve. The Delta website was only slightly helpful. I found what looked like my product, but the parts explosion showed and specified a valve the was significantly different from mine. I found what looked like the correct valve in another, similar product. So, since it seems there is only 2 choices for this particular product line, I ordered that valve.
When the valve arrived, upon cursory inspection, It seemed to be the valve I needed. But the devil is in the details. After removing the old valve and comparing it to the new one, I found what appeared the be minor differences - particularly the O ring setup sealing the hot and cold source. But the really irritating difference was the fact that the new valve had 2 'nubs' on the seating ring. The old one only had one. And the shape was different. So I ended up 'modifying' the new one with my knife to make it seat properly. But it works. However, it did confirm my long standing prejudice against Delta.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bigdogs Close, but not an exact match
This cartridge was listed as the replacement for mine. We are DIYer's, so ordered it from Home Depot as they did have the best price on this part. It is "almost" the same, but not exactly. There is a small plastic piece that holds small o rings that is supposed to replace the old one, but, the old one on our unit does not come out, it's a fixed piece. We were able to work around it with a little creativity, and it works fine, but I don't know if someone with no experience would have been able to work it out. I should also state we are not "plumbers". Perhaps there was a secret to the whole thing we didn't know. Overall, it seems to be working fine and we no longer have a leak!!
