Question about Delta 989-SSSD Allora Kitchen Pull Down Faucet with Soap Dispenser Brillian...

1 Answer

Delta 989-SSSD soap dispenser loose.

How do I tighten my soap dispenser to my granite countertop?

I can reach up behind the sink and turn the soap reservoir, and feel a ring with nubs extending from the ring. I can't seem to find the two parts that need to be screwed tight.

Thanks for your help.

Tom

Hi tsquared_030,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: How do you tighten your soap dispenser to your granite countertop?
You can reach up behind the sink and turn the soap reservoir, and feel a ring with nubs extending from the ring. you can't seem to find the two parts that need to be screwed tight.

You will need a little help. First remove the top dispencer, it just pulls out. Time to go below. Carefully unscrew the soap bottle to get it out of the way. Have your helper hold the escuchen (the part on top) while you tighten that nubby ring underneath. I find it easy to do this with a basin wrench. If you can't lay your hands on one you'll have to make do with your hand but you won't be able to fully tighten and you may have to repeat in future. Have fun.

Why is my grohe alira kitchen faucet loose on a granite counter


Probably a loose fixture nut under the counter behind the sink.
Yeah ya gotta pull out everything and crawl up into the cabinet on your back and see if the nut (right up at the granite, above the hot and cold inlet pipes) is loose. If it is THEN you'll need to tighten it. Wrench, slip-joint pliers or a basin wrench. (probably basin wrench which is a specialized tool made for reaching up into tight places)

When installing do you silicone each piece for example the faucet , the soap dispenser ,the sprayer , and the tap


Hi seawitch678,

If you have a granite or stone countertop/sink, use silicone as plumber's putty will stain the stone. Plumber's putty is petroleum based so it will not adhere to stone. Normally you should use what the manufacturer recommends and where they recommend. When installing a faucet, put either around the base of any piece that goes through the countertop.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

bobj50-

The white washer goes underneath the counter (with the nut) and the rubber gasket on top of the counter under the dispenser head. You may find it easier to tighten the assembly with this configuration. As for filling the bottle, unfortunately it must be unscrewed from under the counter in order to refill it.

Hope this helps.

I installed a black granite sink, but the BASKET STRAINER is leaking. Do I need to buy a specific Basket Strainer for the Granite sink and take model # of the sink.Or can i just buy any basket...


Hello.
You shouldn't need a special strainer.
Where the strainer meets the sink surface, ( the lip of the strainer ), should have plumber's putty.
Take a chunk of plumbers putty and roll it out like a snake and then stick it under the lip of the srainer all the way around. Set the strainer in the hole and then on the bottom side add the rubber seal, then the cardboard, or metal glide ring and then the nut.
As you tighten the nut it will squeeze out the excess putty and allow you to remove it.
1. Sometimes people try to use the rubber seal on the top side of the sink, but it goes on under the sink.
2. The cardboard/metal glide ring prevents the nut from tearing up the rubber seal so you can really tighten it.

I hope this helps you!
Thanks, Donnie

If you can, look up under sink for hose attached to faucet. There should be a weight on the hose, to assist in retracting it. Usually just a bolted on round lead weight that wraps around the metal sleeve of the hose. Perhaps he forgot it, or it needs to be moved/adjusted by loosening off the bolts that hold it together and sliding it up or down the hose. He may have even routed hose wrong. Have someone pull it out and slide back in while you watch it.
