Do all versions have plastic tubes?
I recently bought this from Lowes. The faucet itself seems decent but it mounts to the sink top with plastic tubes and washers. I'm wondering if other models of this faucet, bought at a showroom instead of a box store, will have metal legs to mount it or if they are all plastic.
Thank you for your question. The mounting shanks on your Delta Faucet model 400-SS-DST-L are a very durable plastic. They are there for a lighter weight faucet but will hold up as well as or better than metal shanks. We still use metal shanks on some of our faucet but if it has the exact same model number as your faucet, it will have the plastic shanks, no matter where it is sold.

Connecting an appliance
Can I attach a small single hose inlet portable clothes washer to this faucet?
Thank you for your question. A hose can be attached to the faucet, but an appropriately sized adapter will need to be used.

Delta Kitchen Faucet Model 400
I must have an old model because those two copper tubes at the bottom have a flat end. Are they required to be soldered?
Or, is there a way to connect them to the cold/hot water lines without soldering? Thanks a lot.
You might need to upgrade the valves which the tubes attach to. A plumber can surely assist.
