Cicero Single Handle Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet with Soap Dispenser 3.4 5 34 34
Connector broke when trying to clean aerator I tried to remove the wand from the hose assembly in order to try to clean the aerator and the tiny tab that connects the wand to the hose broke off and now my faucet is pretty much unusable. The fact that a tiny piece of plastic (probably 1/8" wide by 1/16" thick) is all that is holding these two main parts together is ridiculous. What's even crazier is that the only way to buy a replacement for this little piece of plastic is to buy a whole new wand assembly, which costs over $100. The tiny piece of plastic isn't even a part of the wand (again, it connects the wand to the hose). August 14, 2013
Easy to install and use I love my new Delta faucet. I had a moen previously and it was awful to try to fix when I had a leak. The parts were not easily accessable. That's why I purchased a Delta. I got reviews from people that have Delta faucets and they were happy. My plumber also said Delta was a good faucet and parts were easy to get. He said "it's idiot proof to install and repair." I can't say enough how happy I am with this faucet. May 24, 2012
A couple problems... We bought this faucet a few years ago when we remodeled our kitchen. Overall we like it, however there are a couple issues. First, there are black specs showing up in the water. This has been happening almost from the beginning. I understand from reading here that it is not an issue with the hose coming off the handle. This has been concerning for us and have not been using the faucet at all to gather water for drinking/cooking from it. The second issue is.. I can not seem to replace the aerator. The water pressure is dropping and I believe it to be because of the aerator assembly. I bought the wrench from Delta, however it does not fit and I can not get it to budge manually. So I am not sure if this is a defect, or if it is just not replaceable. February 20, 2015
Stay Away. This aerator can not be removed and cleaned We have had this for a little over a year and have had constant problems with it clogging up. We previously had a Moen and thought we would try Delta. We were concerned from day one when our plumber installed it. He told us to call to get a plumbers "key / tool" to remove the water flow restrictor (He even spoke to Delta for us) and were told it didn't have one! We were also told you couldn't remove the aerator to clean if needed. Great time to find this out. We just paid the plumber to install and weren't going to pay him twice so we kept it. Bad decision! We just had to replace our hot water heater and unfortunately, sediment has clogged the faucet and we can't clean it. This is unacceptable for a $250.00 plus faucet! February 24, 2013
Love it but need to fix leaking The faucet is great all around, but it has developed a leak when handle is fully down in the off position. You have to lift the faucet and 'search' for a position where the flow fully stops. Any advice on this problem would be appreciated. April 28, 2013
black particles in water I bought this faucet several years ago and recently have noticed when filling a cup with water that there are black particles floating in the cup. I took the wand off and found that the problem worsened (obviously, the aeraetor in the wand is doing it's job, even though it cannot be cleaned#. I then took the hose assembly apart and ran water that was collected without passing through the 52" stainless line and VOILA, no particles. Additionally #not to pile on...) the soap dispenser broke within 2 years. The plastic neck on the soap container snapped. I tried several glues / adhesives without any luck. I have lived with this issue, but the black particles are where I draw the line. I can't recommend a product like this that I paid good money for and now is contaminating my water supply. Clearly an inferior material was used in the adaptor or hose that is breaking down after use. August 9, 2014
A good product but needs some tweaks This product was easy to install and it looks good. But The spray unit drips after you use it for a few minutes and when you rotate the faucet it squeaks. January 21, 2013
Perfect item for location I wanted something with a little height but not the big curved arm. This one fit the bill perfectly and with the choice of spray or stream and removable arm, this item just is perfect in this location. The non-spotting surface always looks good and the additional setup for the soap dispenser keeps one more bottle from sitting around on the counter top. We love it and know we made a wise choice after searching quite a few options. Thank you for a great product. April 30, 2014

I have the Delta Cicero 468 faucet which is great - except... how do you clean the aerator?

I have been to Home Depot - no tool, no replacements.
I have been on Delta's site - no tool, no replacements.

My great faucet will become formerly great if I can't clean the aerator and restore flow... how do you clean the aerator?

Hi Bob, Thank you for your question. The RP52217 aerator wrench will remove the aerator from the wand assembly that comes with the model 468-SSSD-DST faucet. The aerator replacement and wrench is available to order as RP76076.
You can soak the aerator in a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water to help break up any mineral build up and clean the aerator.
Thanks,
Dave

Hi Joe, Thank you for your question. The model 468-SD-DST faucet can be installed in a single hole without the 3 hole escutcheon plate. You would have to have another hole to mount the separate soap/lotion dispenser that comes with the faucet.

Can the aerator be removed on Delta cICEROFaucet Mod. 468-SD-DST

The aerator is obviously now becoming obstructed with mineral deposits. Other Delta kitchen faucets now come with a plastic tool to remove the center portion but that does not work on this model. Can the aerator be removed for cleaning?

Do you have to hold the button down to use the spray function?

Can you just click it and use the spray nozzle, or do you have to hold the button down all the time for spraying?

Answer: 
Hi Ray. No there isn't, and what is more it that you can't service the aerator. That means that your water flow will reduce over time as sediment collects in the aerator. If you like your tap water flavored with sediment this is your faucet. I hope that helps!

What is the difference between the Cicero (468-SD-DST) and Palo (467-) models?

The Cicero model is sold by Home Depot, the Palo by Lowe's and Amazon. I couldn't compare the models on the Delta website because in the summary the website showed only the Palo model. I saw Cicero at Home Depot, and a Google search lead me to this model also here on the Delta website. Does the Palo allow to control the water flow? That seems to be an issue raised in the Q&As for the Cicero. What is the difference between these two models and which would you recommend? Thank you.

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model numbers 468-SD-DST and 467-DST differ in a couple of ways. The handles and the wands are slightly different. Also the 468-SD-DST has a soap dispenser included with it, and the 467-DST does not. It is a personal preference as to which one is better, they will perform the same way.

Cicero Model 468-SSSD

I just replaced an older Delta pull out model with the Cicero 468-SSSD. I am very disappointed with the water pressure. Is there a flow restrictor I can remove?
I am reading reviews online from others having the same problem. The pressure was fine in my old faucet, so I doubt the problem is in my supply lines.
I have trusted Delta for years, I am very disappointed.
I am going to return it to Home Depot if you don't have a solution for me.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model 468-SSSD has a 1.5 gallons per minute (GPM) flow. This is the industry standard now. We do not know what your old faucet's GPM was but it may have been more. There also may be debris in the line. We recommend taking off the aerator and flushing the lines to remove any debris. You may also soak your aerator in a 50/50 solution of white vineager and cold water overnight.

468 SSSD - incorrect replacement valve assembly?

Our 468 SSSD single handle valve set is several years old but continues to work very well. Recently it has begun to drip intermittently with the valve handle 'off', so I researched and bought what I thought was the correct valve replacement (p/n RP50587) to fix this occasional drip. But when I disassembled the valve (according to the directions in the replacement valve packaging), this new replacement valve does not resemble the original 'bad' valve in any manner. The 'old' valve seems to be just a short lever with a polished perforated ball that is sealed against three 'o-rings' in the bottom of the valve seat/receptacle, while the new one resembles a 'cartridge' made of plastic/nylon that seemingly does not seem to fit this existing valve body. Was there an 'earlier model' valve for some 468 SSSD valve sets that might not be illustrated in the parts list? Or did I simply not disassemble the valve sufficiently to the point where it is possible to install this new valve?
