SOURCE: 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:

Yes, It can be fixed but it isn't a washer. There is a replacement stem for the faucet . They are readily available at most big box stores and possibly the local hardware store. Bring your faucet model number with you.

The little wrench tightens the tension ring that fits on the inside of the retaining nut right under the handle. You fit the little "arms" in the notches.

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.

Why is my delta kitchen faucet hot cold backwards


The supplies are probably hooked up backwards. Hot to cold side and cold to hot side.

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...

Hot water side slower pressure than cold side on one handle kitchen faucet


If problem is isolated to one faucet, then clog is located near that faucet.
I have same problem on one faucet when sediment and dirt collects at shut-off valve for some reason.

Problem can be at shut off or at supply tube or at faucet ... or all 3.

Repairs get things kind of wet so get out bucket and towels.
Take apart center mixing valve on faucet and turn water on to see if problem flushes out.
Disconnect hot side supply tube at faucet. Turn water on and see if that flushes problem out.
Remove shut off valve and turn water on to see if that flushes problem.
Replace shut-off valve.
Next place to look is elbow inside wall.

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.

Pressure surging thru Delta single handle faucet. The water flow starts and stops suddenly when the faucet is more than half way on. Same for hot and cold.


I don't know if this is your problem or not, But I had a new faucet and it did the same thing. I found little tiny pieces of polishing media stuck in side the faucet. Every time you turn on the water it comes out fast , then trickles, drove me nuts, I took it back and got another, no problem, hope this helps.

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.

Valve in Delta faucet closes as water warms up


Yes, you are on the right track, but Deltas use a fancier kit inside them. It is quite a bit pricier than an O ring, but will solve the problem. It is not hard to install at all.

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.
