I am trying to convert my Delta bath faucet to a quick-change hand held shower by removing the aerator and then screwing in a snap-on type coupling with built-in aerator for quick release to allow the bath to be run when wanted, or a shower hose to be connected with a ball bearing or other quick release system. I found the exact product I needed made by PlumbShop (item PS2706), but it is for a smaller sink faucet tap. Do you sell or know of such a fitting I could purchase for my Delta faucet? If not, is there some other system of accomplishing what I’m trying to do? Any help would be much appreciated.
Hi Randy what you want to do is ILLEGAL in most plumbing codes.
Lets think about this.
Suppose you have a tub full of soapy dirty water with this hose hanging down and for some reason you get a loss in pressure like a water main break.
What we now have is a classic example of back flow TSK,TSK,TSK what to do?
Now lets try to do it legally and use the existing shower arm (1/2″ threads) and get a chrome plated diverter with a shower hose just long enough to be about 4″ above the tubs flood level rim NOT over flow BUT flood level.
Now we have the following LEGAL connections
1- you have the bath tub spout
2- You can use the existing shower head
3- You have the option to use the hand held so you do not have to wet your hair when showering and this is a permanent hook up.
Now isnt this a great idea to have legal options and not using a quick disconnect all the time?
Good thing I went to school that day huh?
Get a decent quality stainless steel hose not the cheap imported stuff.
