Customer Question
I have a Delta...

I have a Delta Ashton faucet set, purchased from Lowe's in Waynesville, N.C. on 05/15/2014. The water will only shut off with concentrated effort, and then, only in one exact location of the handle. A Lowe's employee suggested that I contact Delta about getting a replacement cartridge. The cartridge appears to be part number RP50587, in the installation guide. I'd like to purchase a replacement cartridge. Can you help me?

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

It's been coming on for about a little over a year, and has finally gotten so that we almost can't shut the water off. It drips constantly, and with a concerted effort, we can work the handle around and eventually get the water to shut off.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No, I planned on calling my plumber to effect the repair, but wanted to have the cartridge on hand when I do.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Can't think of anything. I believe that's it.
