SOURCE: water pooling at base of delta waterfall faucet spout

I have the same problem. The part that is needed is found with a simple Google search for "Delta Waterfall RP22934 O-Rings"

Simply Slide the collar up at the base of the spout where it swivels.

Gently open the now exposed split plastic retainer so that the tabs near the bottom are pulled from their holes.

Lift the spout off the base to expose the o-rings.

Replace with the new o-rings and apply o-ring grease.

Re-assemble and enjoy a dry sink area.

SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

SOURCE: Delta Kitchen Single Faucet 470 suddenly would not give water

Debris in the valve is a fairly common cause for stopping water flow in single lever valves. You can first check the aereator and remove any debris that may be there at the faucet itself. Then you can try to remove the ball at the control lever. You have to be careful and make sure that you do not drop any parts. Especially if this is a recent installation, you may find a large piece of something there.

easy fix, shut-off water at under-counter angle valves and water meter, pop-out the blue and red insert located on the front of the handle of the faucet, turn faucet on to relieve pressure, loosen allen screw under red and blue insert, pull handle up, remove nut under handle, remove plastic insert gasket and stem under the nut, notice two rubber gaskets.... remove them and the springs behind them and replace, when putting the insides of the faucet back in pay close attention to the notches and grooves,,,, the parts only go back one way....

SOURCE: How do I tighten a Delta kitchen faucet that has

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.

We have a Delta 172 single handle faucet. We had our hot water heater replaced. Now it takes longer for hot water to get to the faucet. Could debris (calcium build up, etc.) from the replacement get in...

Yes, debris from water heater replacements often breaks lose and gets stuck. The problem could potentially be anywhere between water heater and the faucet. The faucets shut off valves or the Delta faucet cartridge itself. Turn the hot and cold water valves off under the sink and disconnect the water supply lines from the faucet. aim the water supply lines into a bucket and turn the valves on one at a time. If there is a significant reduction in the water pressure and volume on the hot water side, you need to replace the shut off valve. If there is no reduction in water pressure, you need to clean and/or replace the Delta faucet cartridge. Contact Delta to receive free replacement parts.

Faucet continually drips in off position

If its leaking when faucet is in off position than seats and springs will need to be replaced. To do this shut off water to faucet both hot and cold. The handle is held on by a allen head set screw on the back side of handle . Loosen set screw and carefully remove handle,this make take alittle persuasion but don't force it. Carefully rock back and forth and tap lightly on base of handle .When you get handle off the round cap assembly will need to be removed,it has serrations at bottom to grip it withchannel lock pliers. You need to be very careful here and not use too much force because if you do you will twist copper fittings inside of faucet and ruin it. If it does not come loose fairly easily by turning counterclockwise you can use a mini hack saw or just hacksaw blade and carefully split cap on back side. Go slow stopping often to make sure you don't go any deeper then absouletly neccesary. If you slightly mark retaining threads it's not terrible. Most of the cut is not to bad because all parts immediatly underneath are easily replaced. When you get almost all the way thru take a large blade screwdriver insert in slot you have cut and twist back and forth to break cap the least of the way. Cap will be easy to remove now,take it off and pull out control ball along withrubber seal. There will be a small round rubber seat on bottom,one for hot and one for cold remove them and springs underneath them.Replace all parts that may have been damaged.needless to say you will need cap and seat and springs at the least.Repair kits are redily available just follow instruction and you should be fine.I know it's a pain but if you take your time you can save a good faucet. Hope this helps. Thanks

I have a model 3555 delta victorian faucet that has a drip, do I need to replace the stem unit assembly

First isolate which side (hot or cold) that the leak is coming from by turning off one or the other valved under the sink. once you know if its the hot or cold faucet, then shut off all water supply to the sink and remove that faucet handle with a very small allen wrench ( there should be a set screw in the side of the handle) inside of the valve (handle) there will be little rubber seals like o-rings that are worn out and need replacing. you can purchase them at home depot or a hardware store

Faucet and shower head leaking, it`s a delta product. It drops when turned off. It`s a delta faucet product.

Is it a single handle faucet set? If so it sounds like you need to replace the stem in the faucet itself. You can get to this with a screw driver and a pair of pliers. Turn off the water to the faucet (hot and cold) and remove the handle. Once you do this you will see a clip that hols the stem in place.Remove this clip and pull the stem out with the pliers and you can find a replacement at your local Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. Pay attention to the directions when reinstalling. there is a tab that determines the top side of the stem.

2-handle faucet handles both rotate "on" counter=clockwise

Here's the solution from Delta:
On a two-handle kitchen or lavatory faucet, if the handles rotate in the wrong direction, simply rotate the right stem stop assembly 180 degrees. This will change the rotation of the handle to the other direction.

Leaking Delta kitchen faucet dual handle

Pry the hot/cold button off the top of the handle. Make sure the water is turned off below the sink.

Under the button should be screws. Remove the screws. Pry the handle off. Remove the stems by lifting then out.

That should give you access to the washers you need to change.

Kitchen faucet won't turn all the way off

You need to replace the washer on the stem. It's a Delta so it's possible that you have the type where the washer is actually in the very bottom of the manifold instead of on the stem.
