Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by TOTAL JUNK !!!!! I paid $229 thinking this would last 20 years. Well it has been less than 2 years it drips all the time (so much for the Diamond technology) Now I can't get any hot water out of the darn thing. Only cold and the water pressure is low now on the cold side. Great pressure at the shut off valve hot and cold. I wish I would never bought it. Menards had a Delta rep in the store that day I bought it talked me in to buying it. January 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing faucet We have been using for about 6 months and love it. Magnetic docking is great, keeps pull down in place. This pull down does NOT feel cheap as with other pull downs. I have chrome and it cleans easily. My 4 year old grandaughter can use & replace pull down with ease and loves the faucet. Asked her mother to buy one for their house. That makes it all worth while. July 21, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by This product is not worth the money. 1: The mounting mechanism is not very good. 2: The cartridge wears out frequently. February 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The faucet works great no problems! Was easy to install works greats with no problems little had to read instructions about were the gaskets go. June 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Meets Expecations For the price the faucet is fine. It looks nice and is functioning well. December 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by I really like the design and performance of this faucet. Overall, this is a great product. Two issues with the product. The water temperature is difficult to adjust--either too hot or too cold. Need to adjust the handle ever so gently to get the temperature correct. Also, the soap dispenser is difficult to fill. When starting to refill the soap spills all over the sink if I am not careful. Also, it is very difficult to tell how much soap to add to refill the dispenser without if overflowing. Overall these are things I will get used to the more I use it, but a little annoying none the less. August 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great faucet I've been using the Delta Kate for a little over a month and so far love it! I was concerned about the magnetic attachment of the sprayer, but it locks in tight without issue. I expect that to continue and for that reason, give the faucet the highest marks. Installation was very easy. The ability to place the handle separately from the spout is a nice feature PLUS, the soap dispenser makes for a complete set. My only wish now is for Delta to have a beverage faucet that matches for my filtered water spout. March 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very very nice faucet I love this faucet. Couple of things. We have a very deep sink, actually a set of 2. This faucet works best with a deep sink, as you can pull down the sprayer/spout and it won’t splatter all over the counter. You can work deep in the sink. I like the high arc, as you can fit most anything under it. I like the magnetic pull back in place, as this tidies up the area. I wanted and had actually first bought the Touch one, but it did not have the lifetime warranty, so I returned it for this one. I do like it and I like the finish. I would say the only thing I find just a tad bit wrong is if the item I want to fill won’t fit in the sink under it, the spout pull out is difficult to get at a higher angle. So, you first have to pull out the hose, put it in the thing you want to fill, then hang on to it, then turn on the water. Overall, I would buy this again and really love it. June 16, 2012

How deep does the sink need to be to work with this faucet?

My sink is a high low unit with the deeper sink being 9 1/2" deep. Will it work with a sink this shallow?

how far does it pull down?

Does
"pull-down spray wand features a 59″ hose providing a 20″ reach"
mean that the sprayer pulls down/out of the fixture by 20"?

Can I get an escutcheon plate for this faucet

I purchased this faucet to use in the laundry room. The tub has a 4" center, 3 hole. An escutcheon plate would solve the problem. Do you sell any plates that would work with this faucet

Hi Phaye, Thank you for your question. The model 16970-SD-DST does not have any escutcheon plate compatible with it. The components are made to fit 3 individual holes on a typical 8" center installation Thanks,
