Signature Single Handle Pull-Out Kitchen Faucet
Disappointed in quality
I had the prior version of this faucet for 10 years. I had to replace it because there were problems, it had started to leak and just had some general issues. I don't have a problem with that since Delta replaced it for free. This replacement faucet is definitely cheaper quality. The finish seems to stain with water droplets constantly. The construction of the handle is definitely not the quality of the prior one. The prior faucet was definitely of sturdier construction. I only recommend it because I do like the overall design and I do think Delta is a good company.

Excellent quality and performance
I've used this faucet daily for over seven years and love it. The Diamond Seat Technology is superb. It works smoothly an effortlessly, without developing drips or problems of any kind.
The toggle between spray and stream works well and makes a positive transition between modes, unlike those of competing brands.
The article stainless finish looks the same as it did at the time of installation and is simple to wipe clean.
This design is a winner!

Good product but ...
It is difficult to ajust to warm water. The handel rotation goes from cold to very hot.
Also the same handel rotates roughly, that is not smooth enough.
And finally I would have prefered writing this in french, since it is my language (Québec, Canada)

well built faucet
well built faucet. Problem: slow to access hot water. Tricky to blend hot and cold.

My second purchase of this item. The first one bought a couple of years ago started leaking. Bought the repair valve insert but it does not work in my older unit. Also bought a whole new faucet presumed to be identical to my old one but that is only in what you see above the sink. Old one had nice flexible metal braided hoses, easy to install. The new one has stiff plastic hose and I haven't worked up the wherewithall to attempt the installation. Might have to just call in a plumber or jury rig the installation if the plastic tubing kinks. I guess like every other manufacturer. cost saving changes are never ending.

Delta 470 Promo
worst experienece with this faucet.
1. 2 yrs ago. water leaked through the pull out pipe. damaged entire basement sealing. had to spend 1000 in fixing basement and 160 + (80 installation) for a new delta faucet. Biggest mistake I made in purchasing the same model.
2. 1 year ago had problem with clogged tube and delta promptly sent me replacement for free.
3. today 10/15/2010 we just realized that the pipe is leaking again and to my shock basement sealing is wet again.
I will never buy a delta in my life again. I am writing this review while fixing the faucet. Just imaging my frustration.
Thanks for reading !

Sticky Black Goop
We have had to replace the hose on this model once already. Now sticky black goop is coming out of the faucet into our drinking water. When I took off the hand sprayer it was filled with sticky black goop the consistency of wood glue, The agent at Delta told us that the hose lining in this model has a history of breaking down and clogging up the hand sprayer. Her solution offered no apology. However, she gave us the tip to soak the hand sprayer in vinegar and water. I have no idea how long we have been filling up our ice trays and drinking glasses with the lining of the hose,

Great looking faucet
We have only had the Delta 470 DST installed for a month but so far it is working great (the water output is wonderful) and looks great. I have a white solid surface sink and had a Moen white faucet before. I was never happy with the output of water and the finish turned yellow over time so I decided I would go with a Delta chrome faucet this time. I was a little apprehensive about how chrome would look with my white sink --but I am very happy with it. With care in keeping the water wiped off of it after use, it seems like it will stay nice and shiny. We did pay a very good reputable plumber to install it for us which I feel is important. I am trusting Delta that it will be a faucet we will be enjoying for a long time to come.
