Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pete100355 tough to handle project
The cartridge is easy to install! But the old cartridge was very challenging to remove. The silicone grease helped the job and made it easier to install the cartridge!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heesme It works... eventually.
I'm guessing if you need this, it's because you're replacing a worn out part which may not necessarily come out easily. I recommend buying the whole assembly instead of trying to rebuild either the hot or cold side since I obliterated the old one trying to take it out. You know, the whole hard water and corrosion build up thing? Anyway, it was a pain trying to get the old one out so I could put this one in. Then I had to carefully pound to get it to fit completely. I was a little scared I might bash a hole through my wall or destroy my pipes and then actually have to call a plumber, but no, my unskilled DIY hands were able to take care of the job. Don't worry too much. You can do, Home Depot can help. ;)

Excellent stainless steel polish. No build-up and great shine.

Easy for the DIYer with elementary plumbing skills. If you know how to cut the water off to your house and can turn a wrench, you can do this in 30 minutes if you take your time.
I STRONGLY recommend you buy one of these before starting; it will make your job a lot easier as the circular ring nut that holds the cartridge in place has NO flats for a regular wrench. I originally tried using a pair of ChannelLocks and it didn't work.
One piece of advice: I found the "default" setting for the hot water limit was too darn cold. The "max hot" setting was barely hot enough. Depending on how hot your water is, you may need to adjust this setting. Be careful and set it intelligently so nobody gets scalded. Good thing is, the newer version of this cartridge allows you to set the hot water limit without removing the cartridge, so you can install it and then tweak it as much as you want without cutting off the water again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bart Cartridge designed for Delta brand
This product does exactly what it was designed to do. If your bathtub faucet (DELTA brand) leaks, this product is the answer for that leakage. It stopped mine!

I was glad to get the exact replacement cartridge for the faucet rather than a generic.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hpglow Not genuine
This is the second time in a month I have gone to a HD to find the product at a $10 price premium over their listed online price. Not only that 12 were listed in stock on the web and when I got there one was on the shelf, and it had been opened. Sorry but the last time I bought a open cartridge someone had taken all the springs and seals out of it and I got a leaky replacement. For the listed price here the cartridge would be a savings but in the store you may as well pay a little more to completely rebuild the faucet with GENUINE Delta parts. Plus genuine Delta parts come with extra springs and rings for the next time the cartridge needs a rebuilding.
Next time I'm just ordering from Amazon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geri Easy as 1,2,3 to install
I saved over $125.00 by purchasing this part at Home Depot & installing it myself which was as easy to do as 1,2,3.
PS I am a woman too, hear me roar!!!!!
