What stainless alloy is used in the stainless steel version of 2408-DST?
What stainless alloy is used in the stainless steel version of this Pilar faucet, 2480-DST? I have been reading about my new stainless steel sink, which is 304 (18/8) stainless steel and I am wondering if this is the same alloy, with its sensitivity to the chloride ion. I installed my faucet a few weeks ago and am quite pleased with it.
Thank you for your inquiry! Our Arctic Stainless finish is similar to a brushed soft satin finish. The faucet is not actually made of Stainless Steel. The spout, handles, and valve assemblies on the model 2480-DST are made of brass.

What is the recommended spacing for the distance in between components of this faucet set? IE, handles to the faucet, to the sprayer.
I have to give the measurements to the granite manufacturer who is also installing the sink. It's described by Delta as "4-hole 6-16" installation". Is 6" the minimum recommended spacing between the trim components, IE, handle to spout to handle to sprayer?
Thank you for your question. The Delta Pilar Kitchen 2480-AR-DST faucet is a 4-hole 6-16" installation. This measures from center of one handle to the center of the other. Please see Technical Specifications document below.

how do I remove the aerator to put in an adapter for a water filter?
Thank you for your inquiry. To remove the aerator from the Delta Pilar Kitchen 2480-RB-DST faucet, you would use the blue plastic wrench RP52217 to unscrew it. The wrench is shown on page 2 of the parts diagram of the below included document.

Is there a model-appropriate plug to fill a hole in my countertop?
I hope to replace a 5-hole system that includes a spigot, two handles, a sprayer and a soap dispenser with the Pilar 4-hole system.
Does Delta make a cover I can place in the fifth hole now drilled in my countertop?
Or does Delta make a soap dispenser that aesthetically resembles the Pilar 2480 in Arctic Stainless?
Hi Mark, Thank you for your question!
We do manufacture a hole cover but not in the Arctic Stainless finish. The closest match would be the Brushed Nickel or Stainless Steel. The part number for the hole covers is RP52397BN and RP52397SS. We also manufacture a few Arctic Stainless soap dispensers. Below is a link to the soap dispensers:
