Question about Delta Model 172: Waterfall Single Handle Kitchen Faucet - Chrome

1 Answer

Delta single handle model 172 is leaking at the base and tip of the spout. There is an occasional leak at the base of the handle as well. Is there a Q&A on what is needed to fix each problem and what the part numbers are (plus Glacier Bay parts, if that is available). The local plumber thought I could get a set of replacement parts from you for free. What are my options?

Vegetable Sprayer leaks when faucet is turned on....is there a repair kit for it??


there should be, probably a diverter problem inside the spout assembly. It is stuck between settings letting water travel through the hose and out the sprayer. It is not returning fully to resting position.

The main faucet is leaking-when I use the sep. handle the faucet still leaks. Is a problem with a seal in the faucet or could it be a problem with the handle to shut it off?


if it leaking around the base of the spout...it would be spout o-rings....if it is dripping from the aerator then it is the seat and springs in the handle.

Leakes around spout


You remove the handle after turning the water off the to faucet. Remove the retaining nut which is apart of the trim. The ball assymbly will pull right out and you will find the two little washers and springs below the ball. You can buy a rebuild kit with the new ball if you like but it is not necessary. When you do replace the washers, it might be necessary to tighen the tension ring that is on the retaining nut. Tighten it unit it doesn't leak around the ball stem.

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.
