Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by The "no drip" after shutoff feature is very nice! I was a bit skeptical by the light weight of this kitchen sink faucet and was planning to rebuild my old solid brass body faucet and use the Delta in the interim. But, the Delta has performed well and does not drip after being shut off, so I"ll probably forgo the rebuilding of the old faucet and give the new Delta faucet a longer look. The only feature I am not sure I like about it is that it restricts the water flow more than my old one. It is nice to save water when washing hands or rinsing dishes, but it does take almost twice as long to fill my coffee pot or plant watering jug. I guess it's a fair trade off. The installation was easy as well. 1jim May 10, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product is beautiful but a bit weak The two handled faucet that we bought is beautiful, however the goose neck faucet is so thin and unsteady that I am afraid that if I put pressure on it, it will just break. We don't have any young children in the house but when my grandchildren come, I hope that the faucet will not be broken off by the time they go home. Children are not the most careful people around. I bought this because I was always extremely satisfied with Delta's faucets. I may be pleasantly surprised and what I call shakiness could turn out to be a good thing. As I only have the faucet for a few weeks it is still too early to tell. It would be better if the faucet were thicker and the handles were not so fine. It does make for a more beautiful look but in a busy kitchen practicality and usefulness is just as important March 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Faucet First, I only installed this faucet a few months ago. But, key for me was design, performance, durability, ease of installation, warranty, and then price. Installation -- Installation was quick and easy, with no problems. Design -- the high arch of the faucet head gives you plenty of handling room to facilitate the washing and rinsing of the "taller" pots and pans. Performance -- It works as it should, with no drips or weeps. Price -- Considering the looks, quality, and workmanship of this faucet, I think the price is more than reasonable. Warranty -- Delta promises to send you (free of charge) the proper parts, and instructions (based on the location of the leak) for fixing any leaks that might occur. Links to repair kit videos are available. I don't know what could be fairer than that. As I have only had this faucet installed a few months, I cannot yet speak for it durability. But I can say, I am very happy with the purchase of this faucet. October 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks good and doesn't drip Purchased this faucet to replace an old one that out lived it's usefulness. Had some minor difficulties removing old faucet but installing this one was a breeze. Looks better, functions better than old faucet and reasonably priced. I would recommend this product. December 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by this is a great looking faucet and we love the higher spout. I am no plumber so for me to install this faucet in thirty min was great. Its easy to get large pots under the higher spout.only time will tell how it will hold up . So far so good. July 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy installation Delta was recommended by my plumber....has a wonderful garantee............so from now on I'm a Delta consumer!! hansen May 6, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by replacement for older Delta faucet the building handyman installed it in a snap and it has been working fine since then.. May 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great faucets Delta is a great brand they will help you with anything they can keep up the good work May 12, 2016

I have a Kenmore portable dishwasher. Is there a recommended dishwasher adapter? My old Delta faucet took a male thread adapter but the new faucet has inside female threads.

Answer: 
Hello Jim,

Thanks for your question! Unfortunately, we do not make an adapter that would work with this particular faucet. The threads on this aerator are 55/64"-27 Female. You may be able to find an adapter that will connect this faucet to a portable dishwasher.

I hope this helps!

Answers

Answer: 
Hi Stargirl83, Thank you for your questions!
Brilliance® finishes, designed to not corrode, tarnish or discolor for a “like-new” look for life, are developed by embedding molecules deep into the faucet’s surface, creating a bond that is virtually indestructible. This process is known as Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD). Delta was the first manufacturer to offer this patented process that creates a bond that's virtually indestructible with an incredibly reflective shine. Brilliance resists abrasions and discoloration better than traditional special finishes and, in many cases, better than chrome.

In independent tests using the harshest drain cleaners, the Delta Brilliance drain retained its appearance, while its competitors did not come close. Tested with over 100 household cleaners, the abrasion resistance of the Brilliance finish can even withstand repeated scouring with steel wool. A Brilliance finish is guaranteed not to corrode, tarnish or discolor for as long as you own your home. It can even withstand prolonged exposure to harsh coastal environments.

Also, we do manufacture an adapter RP51505 that converts 21.5X 1-6 g metric thread to 55/64”-27 standard thread or vice versa. The aerator RP74130 that comes with your faucet has a thread size of 55/64-27".

Best regards,
Brandis

Answer: 
Hi woodlady,

Thank you for your question. The length of riser hoses needed will depend on the distance of the supply shut off valves from the faucet. The hoses will be threaded onto the faucet's 1/2" supply shanks.

Jon
