Questions & Answers

What is the difference between models 142984-bn-a and 142984c-bn-a ? (the second has a "c" after the numbers) I only ask because the 142984-bn-a model has really decent reviews while the 142984c-bn-a has terrible reviews (saying that it leaks a lot).

Sorry, I have no idea. Ours had no leaks at all.


Will the shower head work on an existing shower set up, without replacing the valve unit?

Thank you for your question, LoLo! The shower head will work on any standard 1/2" shower arm. Best regards, Jon


Is the 2.0 GPM flow rate controlled strictly by the shower head or does the valve restrict the flow also? I bought this a while back for a project that I have put on hold for other things that came up, Since then I have had a fiasco that opened my eyes to how terribly low flow shower heads are and I don't want to install a new valve in my shower only for it to be terrible and have to rip out tile and redo plumbing because the valve is causing lower flow than I want. If I use a shower head that has a 2.5 GPM flow rate or higher will I still get that or will this new fancy valve slow me down?

There is an adjustment screw in the valve that allows you to set temperature or you can set it at the hottest temperature and adjust it with the actual handle, which is what I did. The shower head only changes the spray pattern. It comes out with a very low pressure all the time. It drove me crazy so I drilled out the little plastic dam in the head that reduces the pressure. Now it's the same pressure as the faucets in the rest of the house. I have very soft water and before it took forever to get the soap off. Now it's back to the way it was with the old shower set. Had I known about this problem before I installed it I would have purchased a different faucet. Good luck!


I have adjusted Rotational Limit Stop as far as it will, but handle still does go all the we to hot. Are there any other adjustments I can make to get the handle to turn all the way left. hot side.

Mine goes a full 180 degrees to fully hot.

I bought 2 sets of these for bathroom remodeling projects. They work okay but spot terribly! The former were chrome and were not a problem. Very disappointed in the spotting, after only 3-4 showers. I expected better quality from Delta.

Hello Sunshine,

I'm very sorry that your Delta faucet shows spots. We appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention. Here is some basic cleaning and care information:

Always blot dry any water from faucet surface. Allowing water to evaporate on the surface can lead to build up of mineral deposits. Cleaning with a damp non-abrasive sponge and buffing it dry with a clean soft cloth should help keep your product looking beautiful. To remove water spots, use warm water and a soft, damp cloth. Hard water stains and calcium build up may be removed using a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Make certain that you rinse thoroughly with water afterward. Also take care to protect surfaces that may be damaged by vinegar. The white vinegar can stain porous stones like granite, limestone and marble. You can also use a cleaner called " bar keepers friend" which works very well with removing water spots.

If additional cleaning is required, all of our finishes may be cleaned with the following household cleaners: 409, Fantastic, or Windex, when used according to the manufacturers' instructions for use. Avoid using the following which can damage your finish:

Avoid industrial cleaners and abrasive cleaners, such as those used for toilet bowls, green Scotch-Brite heavy duty scrub sponges, Scrubbing Bubbles Bathroom Cleaner and Lysol Basin Tub and Tile Cleaner, Lime Away and Soft Scrub.

Best regards,
Brandis DeltaFaucet

I love Delta plumbing products! From kitchen faucets to shower faucets. We bought 3 of these for our remodel and our contractor had no issues. After 2 months, we did have low water pressure when showering with cold water but we contacted Delta who sent us a new cartridge to change out and it helped a lot.

The Porter Single-Handle 3-Spray Shower Faucet in Brushed Nickel was fairly east to install. Shower valve, head, handle & escutcheons went together well & the handle works smoothly & the shower head puts out a good amount of water & pressure. Very sharp looking & gets compliments from the people who have seen it. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a fairly easy install & the cost was reasonable. Have been happily using it for about 3 months now & it looks great with the new shower tile! Would have liked to have the water resistant finish & been willing to pay a little more to get it , but I am very happy with this purchase & meets it all expectations.

I actually used this in two applications. I used the valve in a shower remodel and the shower head with a diverter valve in my second bathroom. The shower head adjusts to it's other settings easily. I like the look.

The valve is a nice brass construction with threaded male ports for attaching the water supply lines. The Bezel and showerhead are nice looking and nice materials- the shower arm and bezel are steel, the showerhead includes a steel cover (both are not metallized plastic). The cartridge has to be installed after the body is mounted to the wall - removing the bonnet nut requires a bit of effort. Once installed, the unit looks great and has a nice quality look and feel. It also functions flawlessly.

I was totally surprised the parts are all metal. The face, escutcheon, and an extremely impressive metal lever. Even the spacer going through the escutcheon is metal. You get the all metal trim kit PLUS the rough-in valve. The face or shower head is also of impressive size, being almost 7"! There are 3 settings on the head, full body, full spray with massage, and massage. Probably the absolute best part of this shower kit is, it is by well known Delta AND guaranteed for LIFE! Do pay close attention to the install instructions. Especially the part about the LIMIT stop on the valve behind the disc. Otherwise your hot water may be too hot or not hot enough. For looks, quality, durability, this product comes highly recommended.

(What's this)
This a beautiful shower faucet. I thought installation was a little more difficult than the average shower/bath faucet. I wasn't impressed the instruction manual. However, after installing one, the second one would be much easier. The function of the shower head is especially nice. I feel like changing the shower setting on most shower heads is very challenging. This one is easier to change than most.( I have included a picture below with my thumb pointing to the shower selection "knob") Also, the shower head itself is quite large about 5"-6" wide.I have included a picture below. Again this is bigger than most and It gives off a very nice spray
