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.

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.

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,

Handie Andie

How do I tighten a Delta kitchen faucet that has become loose?

If it is faucet body on sink loose under sink there should be screws and a plate or washers holding it sink. Tighten them up.

Some have a bolt or nut in the middle requiring a socket to tighten.

If the spout is loose remove handle and it has a plastic ring on top to tighten spout up.

Good morning my plummer put in my new 980t sd -dst touch 20 works so far....however my pull down hose i have to some what push it back up for it to go in......on the video it looks like it...

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.

Faucet was self installed (Loews purchase) last year. Returned to hone after 6 month departure and only cool to warm water will run from faucet. DO I need to clean or replace cartridge? Less than 1 yr old....

Likely rust clogging valve, but remove arator first and clean. Rust accumulates in any metal pipes (coper, or galvinized) when not used for extended period of times.

Delta 473 faucet very loose where it meets the granite

This is a view from the underside of our sink. Is this what you were talking about? The steel plate is W-shaped (upside down in this case) and has a single nut larger than 3/4". It's almost impossible to fit a wrench up there to tighten it.
