Re: water pooling at base of delta waterfall faucet spout
Yes, it sounds like new rings. They are readily available at the supply center/big box stores. Also buy a little tube of O-ring lube for Plumbing. It is a little spendy but it will more than double the life of the rings. Generally this job can be done with an allen wrench bundle, 10" crescent wrench and the new parts. Turn the water off before you start!!

usually there are 2 O rings under the swivel head turn water off then take the top off the swivel I use strap wrenches and replace the O rings use some plumbers lube on them . so it goes together easier and turns freely . Good Luck
I've had problems with the O-rings at the head leaking, feeding back inside the corrugated hose covering, and pooling under the sink. Might be your problem as well. Verify by holding the head downward, and look for water beading out further up the hose.
Remove the rubber O ring (turn off Water supply at meter first), then take your O ring to the hardware store to obtain a new one. You may have to stretch the new ring under hot wster before installation, If you do not feel comfortsble doing this yourself, call an expert.
Ok the water not running out of the faucet. that is the screen on the end of the spout, just un screw it clean it and your good to go.The leak on the spray, pull the spray out and run it and look at the connection right there on the handle.
if there is no leak, get an other person to run the sprayer and you take a flash light and look up at the bottom of the faucet.and see if you can see the leak from there. The hose should attach to a brass section coming out of the bottom of the facucet, It may be it just got loose and you need to re tighen it. Now yo will need a basin wrench to do that . If yo dont have you you can buy a cheap on ( which is all you need) from a hardware store,
Also if you take your hand and feel around the the bottom of the sink where all the pipe come down it might be the fauect itself.
Yep, you have a bad cartridge and a diverter, the handle leaks all come from the cartridge
just remove the handle expose the U clip that keeps the cartridge in place. This is were yo will need a handle puller to extract the old cartridge. When you get it out make sure you clean out the inside befrore you place the replacement unit it. If not the junk will mess up the work you just did.
Make sure you use a food base lube to make surre the new one going in with out cutting O rings.
While you have to spout removed youo will see the diverter and pop that iut and put in a new one and the water to the spray unit will work like new.
Hope this helped you out, Be safe and take care
please take a second to rate us for its the only way if we know what kind of a job we did for you.:)
you have to locate the water shut off valves before you attempt removing the water lines, hopefully they will be located on the lines under your sink, if not you will have to shut the water main off coming into the house. After you have shut the water off and disconnected the lines, look under your sink at the back were your faucet comes through the sink and you will find the fasteners, unscrew these counter clockwise and the faucet will lift out .
There is a bracket that slides between the threaded shaft and the bottom of the sink. There is usually a nut which is tightened up against this bracket. When this nut is loosened, the bracket will slide out. Of course, you first have to unfasten the two water supply lines. Once the bracket is removed, the two water lines which are made into the faucet are gently bent and the whole thing is removed from the top of the sink. Hope this helps.
