Question about Delta Model 473: Saxony Kitchen Pull-Down/Out Faucet - Venetian® Bronze

1 Answer

After a recent water main break, our Delta Model 473 kitchen faucet now has very low water pressure. It also continues to flow for a few seconds after turning it off. I tried unscrewing the screen and cleaning it but it did not help. All other faucets have good pressure.

Check the screen at the hose connection under the sink. Check the hoses for any large debris in them. Verify that the water pressure coming from the water outlets under the sink is good. There is obviously a restriction somewhere...you just need to locate it.

I have a Delta kitchen faucet model #467-SSSD-DST. The cold water flow and/or pressure is not adequate. The flow and pressure from the hot water side is fine. What may I do to fix my cold water problem?


Hi,
Take the handle off (set screw underneath)
Then turn the top off under the handle....make sure water is off...
then you will find a ball with the handle stem on it....note the position of it and pull it out...
under there are two wets of springs and rubber seats...
pull the right side out and check the hole for a blockage...(dirt or rust)
if none is visible, you may have to unhook the cold water supply hose
and then blow compressed air back through the hole to remove the blockage...
then reassemble...

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.

DELTA MODEL 470-WH LOW WATER FLOW AT KITCHEN FAUCET


This could be a couple of things.

  1. First remove the aerator from the wand and make sure you have plenty of flow with it off.
  2. If there is flow clean or replace the aerator.
  3. Remove the wand and look between the hose connection and the wand there should be a screen between them. Remove the screen and clean or replace.
  4. Make sure hose is kinking under the sink.
If you need a diagram of the faucet with part numbers here is the link:

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.
