twitter announced today that it will be removing its implementation of stories dubbed “fleets.” the feature was either loved or hated by twitter users since its initial release last year.

this short-lived feature, which was released in november of last year, will be removed on august 3. twitter acknowledged the controversial nature of the snapchat/instagram clone with the farewell tweet. notably, there was no fleet from the main twitter account announcing the departure of the feature, only a standard tweet.

in the goodbye, the company said it is working on “new stuff.” one can hope that they add the ability to edit tweets, in addition to the new edit audience and monetization features.

in a more detailed blog post, twitter shared that it hoped fleets would make people more comfortable posting onto twitter. as fleets disappear, some of the fleet creation features, like gifs and stickers, will be implemented into the standard tweets composer.

Introduction: How to Change the Cartridge of a Delta Monitor Shower Valve.

The purpose of this Instructable is to illustrate how to change the cartridge of a Delta Monitor shower valve.  The cartridge is the internal working part of the shower valve, if the cartridge is bad, water will continually leak out the spout or you will notice a sudden loss of pressure.   Expensive repair bills may be avoided when you make the repair yourself, also your water bill will decrease, both will save you money. This task can be performed with common household tools.  If you do not own any of the following tools listed, they can be purchased at a local hardware store.  The hardware store should also carry the replacement cartridge for the Monitor shower valve.  To ensure the shower valve is in fact a Delta Monitor, look on the trim plate, there should be the words Delta on the bottom and Monitor on the top (see pictures).  Although these instructions are written so anyone can complete this task, an avid do-it-yourselfer should be able to finish in about 15 minutes.

Step 1: Gather Material Needed

To easily execute this process the following tools are necessary:

     • Allen Wrenches
     • Tongue and Groove Pliers
     • Needle Nose Pliers
     • Faucet Grease
     • New Cartridge

Step 2: Turn Off the Water and Drain the System.

Caution: Treat old valves with care.

1.  Locate the main water shut off for the house or apartment.  It will most likely be located in the basement of a house or duplex.  There will be one of two types of valves ,a ball valve (see picture 1) or another style of valve shown in picture 2. 

2.  Close the ball valve off by gripping the handle and rotate it clockwise.  Move the handle until it has moved a full 90° from the original position. For the other style of valve pictured, grip the round handle and turn it in a clockwise direction until is fully closed.

3. Check to see if the water is shut off by turning on a nearby faucet, the water should slow down and stop running after 30

Tip: If the water does not shut off completely, return to the main shut off, open it back up by turing it in a counter-clockwise direction and the shut it again, this time applying slightly more pressure.  If the water still does not shut off, call a professional to replace the valve.

4. If the water stops completely, leave the faucet open. This will drain the water that is left in the pipes once the shower cartridge is removed.

Step 3: Remove Trim From the Valve

1.  Locate the set screw on the handle.  This will be in a recess somewhere on the handle.  To disassemble the style in picture 1, the lever will need to be removed to access the screw.

2.  Once the lever is removed the screw can be found (see picture 2). Try to evaluate what size allen wrench is going to be needed.  Insert that wrench into the hole.  To make sure the allen wrench is seated into the set screw, wiggle the wrench back and forth.  If the wrench does not move at all you have selected the appropriate size wrench; if the wrench moves without resistance select a different size.  Select the wrench that moves the least.  For the other style of trim, the set screw can be found in the recess under the lever (see picture 4).

3.  Loosen the set screw and remove the handle.

4.   Next remove the chrome collar by gripping it and pulling straight back while twisting (see picture 5).

Step 4: Unscrew the Bonnet

Grip the bonnet with your hand and twist in a counter-clockwise direction, continue until the bonnet is completely removed.  

Tip: To remove the bonnet of an older valve the channel locks may need to be used as shown in the picture. 

(Caution:  Be careful not to apply excessive force when using the wrench, this will deform the bonnet when using the tongue and grove pliers.)

Step 5: Remove the Old Cartridge.

​Grip the old cartridge and pull straight back towards you,  while applying steady pressure slightly wiggle the cartridge up and down. (Shown in picture 1)

Tip:If the cartridge will not come out, the cartridge can be removed with tongue and grove pliers (shown in picture 2), or the needle nose pliers may also be used.

Step 6: Prepare and Install New Cartridge.

1.  â€‹Put a small dab of faucet grease on your finger and apply the grease to the o-rings of the new cartridge. This will help the cartridge to be installed and seat in the valve body (See picture 1).

2.  Locate the H that signifies the hot side of the cartridge.  When inserting the cartridge, be sure that on the H is on the hot side of the valve body, which, while facing the valve, is on the left hand side. (The H is grey and raised on the cartridge, in picture 2 it was made black for viewing purposes.)

3.   Align the notches of the cartridge with the indents of the valve body (See picture 3).

4.  Once aligned, apply steady pressure on the cartridge until there is no gap between the notches (See picture 3).

Step 7: Replace the Bonnet Turn the Water Back on and Check for Leaks.

1.  Once the cartridge is installed, replace the bonnet.  Tighten by hand only, even if it was necessary to loosen the bonnet with pliers, still tighten by hand (see picture 1).

2.  Slowly open the main shut off valve about half way (see picture 2).  Leave the faucet used to relieve the pressure open while the system is filling.  Once all the air is purged and a steady stream is running out of the spout, shut all faucets off and let the system fill completely.  Turn the main water shut off all the way on.

3.  Inspect the shower valve and make sure there are no leaks (see picture 3).  If there is a drip repeat steps 2-7, if the leak persists call a professional.   

Step 8: Replace the Chrome Collar and Handle.

1.  Next replace the chrome collar.

2. Finally replace the handle and tighten the set screw.  
(Caution:  Do Not Over Tighten the Set Screw.)

Once the shower valve is re-assembled and there are no drips you have successfully repaired your shower.

Changing a Delta Shower Cartridge

By Diane Watkins

Change the shower cartridge when leaks first appear to save water.

Delta shower cartridges contain mixing chambers and seals within the cartridge, simplifying repairs. It is the working part of the Delta shower assembly, controlling and mixing hot and cold water. Because all the working parts are assembled together into one cartridge, fixing a leaky faucet is much simpler. Learning to do this simple home repair immediately when leaks develop can save you money and water.

Turn off the water to the shower and turn on the faucet to drain the line. You may need to turn the water off to the house, or you may have a shut-off valve to the bathroom or shower.

Pry off the decorative cap on the faucet with a thin-bladed knife or screwdriver, exposing the screw beneath. Remove the faucet handle by removing the exposed screw with a Phillips screwdriver or an Allen wrench, depending on the shower model. Turn counterclockwise to loosen and remove the screw.

Remove the trim plate on the shower wall. This plate is held in place with either a screw or nut, depending on the model. Once the plate is removed, the shower valve cartridge is exposed.

Use a wrench to loosen and remove the bonnet nut holding the valve cartridge in place. Pull the valve cartridge straight out. You may need to pry it loose with a flathead screwdriver.

Locate the O-ring on the back of the replacement cartridge and coat it with heat-proof plumber's grease. Push the cartridge into the faucet assembly, O-ring first, lining up the small notch on the cartridge and faucet assembly. Replace the bonnet nut and tighten it, turning clockwise.

Reassemble the faucet, replacing the trim plate, faucet handle and decorative cap. Screw each in place, turning clockwise. Turn the water back on and test the faucet. Make sure that the hot and cold water work correctly. If they are reversed, reinstall the cartridge, turning it to line up the notches on the cartridge and faucet assembly.



  • As you remove pieces from the faucet assembly, line them up in the order removed, then reverse the order when replacing the faucet.
