    im a novice. I have a single toggle shower control knob. There is a drip coming from the shower head.

    What part needs toe replaced? And what needs to come off in order to replace it?

    Can I get these pieces from Home Depot and if so what do I buy?

    It’s a delta shower head.

    Picture is attached.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Its definitely Delta. If its dripping from the spout or shower head, you need the seat and springs, part number RP4993.
