 Delta Monitor 1400
Author: joeco316 (PA)

Hi All,

Followup to my below post about dripping shower. I'm correct that these usually wouldn't have integral shut off valves right? I'm trying to avoid shutting off the water to the whole house in case something were to go wrong with my cartridge replacement. There is an access panel to the bathroom that I'm having trouble getting off, so I may find a bathroom shutoff in there once I get it off, but just wondering if I might luck into some valves behind the plate for just the shower.

No, that faucet doesn't have stops. You might get lucky and find valves behind the access panel, you might get even luckier and they actually work.
I would just the water off to the house, it's about a 5 minute job to replace the cartridge.

ANYTHING is "possible" but you will not know until you open the access panel.
