Model 1700, not model 700.

It's most likely releasing pressure from the pressure balancing spool. I assume this is coming out of a shower head not tub spout.

Ok, what is the pressure balancing spool?
Expert:  WCohn replied 1 year ago.
Its what keeps equal hot and cold pressure in the shower just in case someone flushes a toilet or open a faucet. Prevents scalding

When it comes on It will stay on until I open it all the way and then turn it off again.
Expert:  WCohn replied 1 year ago.
I think you need a new pressure balancing spool and cartridge. I can look up part numbers if you like
Expert:  WCohn replied 1 year ago.
Here's the part. I bet you can find it locally much cheaper. http://www.deltafaucet.com/repairparts/details/rp32104.html
