How to remove the aerator?
The water flow from the faucet is a spray instead of a flow. I'm thinking the aerator needs to be removed & cleaned. I realize it can't be unscrewed by hand, like my other faucets. Can you tell me how to safely remove the aerator? Thank you so much for your help.
Thank you for your question.
The model 579-DST requires the aerator wrench, part number RP52217 that comes with the faucet. Please check under the sink as the wrench is designed to clip onto the PEX supply tube. If you are unable to locate your wrench, both the aerator and wrench are available for order as part number RP54977. If you need assistance ordering this part please contact the warranty department at 1-800-345-3358.
Best regards, Edward

How to tighten the drain assembly so it's not loose
I am trying to install the drain assembly and can not get the nut and washer to tighen up so the grid flange is not loose in the bottom of the bowl. The nut bottoms out before everything is tight. There is about a half inch gap when the nut bottoms out between the gasket and washer. Should I put so much silicone around the grid flange that it pushes out when pulling it down to tighten the gasket, washer and nut against it? I every flipped the gasket over but it still does tighten the grid flange. Do I add three more washers to get it to work?
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 579-RB-DST has a pop-up drain that needs a sink thickness of 1-5/8 inches to 2-3/8 inches to work properly. It is possible that your sink does not have the over flow holes and the drain assembly in the kit is built for sinks with overflow holes.
