The pull-down spray wand comes free with a gentle tug and gives you total flexibility. The hose extends and retracts without friction points, fed by gravity. As you raise the wand to dock it, the magnet embedded in the spout pulls the wand precisely into place. So, unlike other pull-downs that tend to droop over time, MagnaTite® keeps your pull-down faucet looking picture-perfect. Delta's exclusive DIAMOND Seal® Technology uses a valve with a tough diamond coating. InnoFlex® PEX waterways keep water inside the faucet out of contact with potential metal contaminants. This powerful combination brings you a faucet built to last up to five million uses. Only Delta faucets are equipped with Touch-Clean® soft, rubber nubbins that allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up with the touch of a finger.
  • MagnaTite docking keeps the kitchen pull-down spray wand firmly in place with a powerful integrated magnet, so it stays docked when not in use
  • DIAMOND Seal Technology features a valve embedded with diamonds to ensure like-new operation for the life of the faucet
  • Includes matching finish soap dispenser
  • Meets standards set by Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Touch-Clean spray holes allow for easy removal of hard water build-up
  • 3-hole 6-16 in. installation

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs stabilization plate, no indication of this Just received this and was excited to install it, but then saw in the instructions that for a stainless steel sink, I need a stabilization plate which is not included nor mentioned anywhere in the description on Delta's website. Really unhappy that this extra requirement wasn't made clear and adds both time and expense to this process as now I have to order that stabilization plate separately.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks better on the website Delta missed the mark on this one. This would not have been my first choice but since the selections for 3 individual hole options are very few and this looked like the one I was replacing, I got it. This is a combination of stainless steel and plastic. The sleeve for the on/off handle is much bigger the sleeve for the pull down. So much that they don't look like they go together. The on/off handle is huge and looks like an old car door handle. The gravity weight for the pull down hose bangs around under your sink which is very annoying. There are a few things I like but more that I don't. Overall I feel like the design is mismatched. Partly sleek and partly chunky. Design was not well executed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Magna tite doesn’t work right Love the look of the faucet but the Magna tite doesn’t seem to be working right. It will stay in place when not in use but we have to push it back into place after using it. It doesn’t snap back into place even when you push it up very close to the top. Is this a faucet flaw or an installation issue? It was professionally installed. It’s terribly annoying to have to force it back into place every time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problem Already Bought this faucet online. Looks great, but at only 6 months, faucet making clicking noise turning on and off. Sounds like its about to go out. Not sure how long Delta's guarantee is for, but I'd still be looking at another plumber installation charge. What a hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks beautiful, very happy Very happy that it fit (in the already drilled holes) in my granite counter top. And it looks so modern & up to date.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Read the midrange reviews first. We've had this for going on 6 months and nothing but trouble with it. We originally had problems with it not seating flush with the new sink...solved that with a thin coat of silicone (not the best solution but worked), now it leaks when I shut the faucet off. So, I have to make sure to pull the handle to the right and then turn it off. Not worth the $$$.

I owned this faucet for 5 years & LOVE it! But would like to know how I can restrict it's motion so it doesn't swing to far towards the back ledge of my sink that it could flood my counter?

Asked by: Zoegirl
Hi Zoegirl, Thank you for your inquiry! The spout of the Delta Kate Kitchen 16970-SD-DST faucet is designed to swivel/rotate 360˚. There is no way of adjusting this designed feature. https://media.deltafaucet.com/SpecSheet/DSP-K-16970-SD-DST%20Rev%20C.pdf Best regards, Tanya

I have a 4 hole sink, can i add a separate hose spray?

Asked by: Ethel
Hi Ethel, Thank you for your question. This model does not have the option of a side sprayer. However, you can use an additional soap dispenser (RP49302) or a hole cover. Best regards, Jon

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
Asked by: Phaye
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, Dave

If i disconnect lines from handle from the supply shutoffs to move the faucet, can i reconnect them later?

Faucet needs to be moved as the soap dispenser and faucet were installed on the wrong sides. If i disconnect the tubes from the supply lines, do i have to do anything to them to make sure they seal correctly when i reattach them? I want to make sure i still get a good seal with the provided fitting ends.
Asked by: MTBAHS#1
MTBAHS#1, Thank you for your question. You may disconnect the water lines and reinstall them. When reinstalling, please follow the installation instructions exactly as before. Best regards, Jon
