SOURCE: Trouble removing the faucet from a Delta Waterfall 174

I wouldn't worry about messing up the threads as it is an old unit that you wish to discard. Do what is necessary to hold the threads still with the vise-grips and loosen the nut until you reach the damaged threads. Then pull the faucet up from the top until the nut hits the bottom of the sink and cut the threaded nipple from the faucet with a hack-saw blade. Lay down cardboard to protect the finish of the sink and surrounding counter top.

I have had to do this many times and it usually saves you the headache of bloody knuckles.

SOURCE: How do I remove delta 470 kitchen faucet? It won't swivel

If the 470 is typical, there should be two large nylon nuts on the bottom of the faucet tubes that hold the faucet to the sink. First, turn the water off, then open the faucet to drain any pressure. Next, disconnect the feed lines (hot and cold) that connect to the faucet from under the sink (be prepared for some water back flow, so paper towels would be a good idea). After the feed lines are disconnected, you should be able to reach up (usually behind the back of the sink basin) and access the two large nylon nuts (one on the cold and one on the hot). These nuts typically have raised portions so that you can get a grip on them. If you are lucky, you will be able to turn them (lefty loosey, righty tighty) by hand. If not you may have to work for some time with various pliers or other tools getting them to turn. Once you have them off, the faucet will simply lift up from the sink. Installation of another faucet should simply be the reverse procedure.
Good luck.

SOURCE: my delta faucet 172-sswf waterfall single handle kitchen faucet is leaking at the handle or lever how do I repair it?

i forget what the piece is called exactly but if you go to home depot or lowes or where ever and give them the type style and brand of your faucet and tell them what it's doing they will set you up with the new part. it's sort of a core type piece with rubber o-rings on it

I have an american standard two handle kitchen faucet. it started leaking at the center and now under the counter off the center bolt. No connection to tighten there. Do I need a new faucet, this one is 5...


there is a chance that one of the internal seals has worn possible do to a build up of calcium from water. what type of connection do you have, is it just push together? likely one of the seals in the centre spout where the faucet breaks between the top and bottom of the sink unit. it may prove easier to replace the faucet but i would have a look to see if i could get to the seals, don't forget to isolate the water supply first though (experience there). hope this helps in some way.

My Delta 174--WF has a constant drip from the faucet. I'm not sure how to take it apart to fix it, or what parts to replace. Can you help?


Turn off water supply and use allen wrench to remove handle then remove bonnet nut then remove internal parts replacement kits available at most lowe's and other home improvement or hardware store or plumbing supply stores take care to document how everything is removed so you can reinstall exactly how it came out.

Re Delta faucet 172-WHWF The spray assembly has a long delay in getting water to it. Would a new diverter valve fix that problem? If so, what is the part number for the diverter valve for this...


Before you start replacing parts look under the sink and make sure the hose leading to the remote spray is not kinked or starting to kink when pulled out.

How do i remove the spout to replace o rings on 174 spout?


1. you can pull the spout while turining it. If this still does not work, then spray wd40 at the base and try again. Last resort, deep the spout and base unit in 50/50 solution of white vinegar for a day and then try to take it apart.

The base and spout are snugged fit so you will need to apply some pressure to move it.

My Delta Model 174 sputters air when turned on and leaks from the base of the spout. What causes this?


Air is getting into your water line, though I can't imagine how since it's a closed system. The only time this might occur is if the water main was shut off and all the water was drained from the lines. This is only necessary if your doing some plumbing work.
