Grant Single Handle Pull-out Kitchen Faucet 3.3 5 14 14
not what I would have expected from Delta I got this faucet less than a year ago and have already put 3 kits in it due to leaking, and handle not returning to center to shut off. This time, I have noticed it took all of three days to start leaking again, but it also is flopping around, the piece that tightens it down broke off. I can hardly use the faucet now and am rather frustrated. If I fix it again, it will only do the same thing. Overall, I have always loved Delta products, and tried to have them in my homes. I hope this is just a design flaw, and not overall standard for their products now. I believe they are one of the best in the industry, except this model. July 17, 2014
hard to cut off We are used to single handle faucet but, this one you have to pay attention, if you don't return handle to mid position when you cut off, the water will keep running. several times we have found later that the water didn't cut all the way off. It's taken a lot to get use too. also faucet could be a little longer to reach further towards middle of sink, don't always need to use pull out. January 20, 2014
Looks nice, but poorly designed Looks nice, and was easy to install, but a month later the wand won't sit in the hub properly. There is a rubber o-ring that holds the wand into place when inserted into the hub and it keeps slipping off and falling down the hose. So every time it happens I have to disconnect the hose and look for the rubber o-ring, which is a pain. Other than that, The faucet is great. March 31, 2014
Looking good so far. Time will tell. I'm replacing a 10 year old single valve Delta faucet. I decided to replace rather than rebuild. The new 06953 is certainly a lot more plastic. The old unit was heavy and durable looking. I'm not impressed with the light plastic design but I suppose that's the trend. Time will reveal durability and reliability. I have several other Delta products I'm happy with. August 27, 2013
installation was easy & faucet works well the installation was done easily by following the instructions. The faucet works well. I like the single valve design and am hoping for many years of "no leaks". One of the items I liked most is Delta's web site. I really like how easy it was to create a profile, add the faucet owned to the profile and list every single spare part needed so that if a spare part is ever needed (say 10-15 years from now), I can go to my profile, get the part number and order it quickly. January 8, 2015
Perfect size for me I replaced a cheaper tract house laundry room faucet with this Delta model. I love the shorter handle so I can get a bucket under it and into the sink. It swivels so easily and the pull out handle is a very nice feature. December 29, 2014
Product performs as advertised. I like the features of this faucet. It slides out easily to use as a sprayer but connects back securely to use as ordinary faucet. Also, faucet was easy to install. February 3, 2015
Overall poor qualtiy My faucet was purchase and installed in February of 2014. After approximately 4-months of usage, the o ring that helps seat the removable spout into the faucet finally broke after is slipping off the indented position. I have not been able to find the exact o-ring so I ended up with one that is a but thicker which makes it harder to securely place the spout into the body. After about 6-months, the water did not shut off all the way. I tightened the bonnet nut as described within the instructions. That worked for a while. I have now tightened 2-other times to the point where it cannot be tightened anymore. While it shuts off, it is now leaking under the handle. So now I have to go back to HD to see if they carry a cartridge replacement. I did a bathroom remodel 2-years ago and chose Delta single handle faucets for the sinks and showers. I purchased those through my designer at Henry Plumbing where they apparently carry the higher quality Delta products. My designer told me not to by the cheaper Delta products that HD carries. I thought she was trying to justify the high price of the fixtures that were quoted on the remodel job. Now I know she was telling the truth. For a $138 Delta faucet, I am extremely disappointed in my kitchen faucet. December 30, 2014

Need a quick disconnect connector that will fit this faucet

I want to connect a portable washer to the 16953-DST faucet in my kitchen but the threads on the aerator are non-standard and I am not able to find an adapter. Please advise on the part # for an adapter to change from the aerator thread size to a standard aerator thread size - or - the part # for a quick connect that will fit this aerator thread and attach to 3/4in pipe thread.
Thanks!

Answer: 
Hi Dan, Thank you for your question. We do not recommend hooking up a portable dishwasher to the model 16953-DST faucet. Portable dishwashers should never be connected to Pull-out or Pull-down kitchen faucets due to potential pressure fluctuations during dishwasher operation that may result in rupturing of the hose.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Hugh, Thank you for your question. Your model 16953-DST faucet comes with an aerator that flows at 1.8 gallons per minute. You can switch out your existing aerator with a RP53998 aerator that flows at 2.2 gpm. The RP53998 can be purchased online at deltafaucet.com.

Hi Catartist, Thank you for your question. The model 16953-SS-DST contains both metal and non metallic components. The hub/body and handle are metal, the pull out wand is not.
