Are sink sprayer hoses universal?

I'm being told that my Delta sink sprayer is proprietary and the plumber did not bring "the right" sprayer hose on the truck. Aren't these hoses universal?

SOURCE: New faucet, sprayer hooked up right, no water going into hose?

check the sprayer handle by disconnecting and blowing into it and pressing sprayer handle and/or for possible kink at main body or hose by disconnected sprayer point hose into sink and turn on water. If no water the the diverter in main body is not working properly and needs to be reassembled or replaced

SOURCE: Sulfur smell from the Delta faucet

Your incoming water from the well is contamiated. A delta faucet will combine oxygen with the water and make the sulfer smell come out. It could also be iron bacteria causing the smell. Look in the back of your toilet tank and see if your have reddish or black stringy algae looking stuff growing in there. If you do, you have iron bacteria and it will smell.

Kitchen sink sprayer leaks down the hose to under the sink


sounds like its either just not tightened enough or you need to buy a rubber washer to put in it. Right at the bottom of the sprayer.

I pulled the sprayer out and it will not go back into place. How can I get it back into place?


The flex hose for the sprayer can be seen under the sink. It may be hung up on a pipe or other object. As long as there is nothing broken on the sprayer you should be able to ease it back into place by gently applying a "pulling" pressure on the sprayer hose under the sink.

We have a Delta kitchen faucet with a pullout sprayer everything was fine for over a year then it started making a bang bang rattle sound very loud only when the hot water is on it only does it about ever...


Delta comes with a limited lifetime warranty. call them to get free parts. I believe you will need to check several things. Remove the spray head from the sprayer hose, point the hose into the sink drain and turn the faucet on. If it no longer makes the banging noise, replace the spray head. You need to look for a leaking spray hose under the sink also. If the faucet is making noise, replace the ball and cam assembly under the faucet handle. One other thing that I have run into is that the shut-off valves under the sink can also go bad and cause banging and vibration.

Kitchen faucet Installation


Many new faucets require some assembly before mounting to the sink; if that is the case, follow the manufacturer's directions. With most pullout sprayer faucets, the sprayer needs to be threaded through the faucet body first. Insert the rubber gasket between the base plate of the faucet and the sink top to create a watertight seal. If no gasket is provided, pack the cavity of the faucet with plumber's putty, then insert the faucet body through the holes in the sink top. Thread the mounting nuts provided onto the faucet shafts, then center the threaded shafts in the sink's holes and tighten the nuts firmly. Many manufacturers include a special long socket specifically to aid in tightening the mounting nuts. A hole in the socket accepts the shank of a screwdriver, guiding it as you tighten the nuts. If you're mounting the faucet on an installed sink, use this method. If you're installing a pullout sprayer faucet--or a faucet with a separate sprayer--now is the time to connect the sprayer to the faucet body. Check the manufacturer's directions to see if using pipe-wrap tape for this connection is recommended. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection. Most pullout sprayer faucets and faucets with separate sprayers come with a counterweight that attaches to the sprayer hose. This weight helps retract the hose back in to the sink cabinet after you've used the sprayer. Follow the manufacturer's directions on where to secure the weight, and take care not to crimp the hose as you attach the weight. Hook up the faucet's hot and cold supply lines to the water supply shutoff valves under the sink. If necessary, gently bend the copper tubes coming out of the faucet for better access and connect flexible supply tubes to them. Simply wrap a couple of turns of pipe-wrap tape around the threaded nipples on the valves and connect the tubes. Tighten the nuts with an adjustable wrench.
