Rosanna, the model I have is a 470-AR-DST signature single handle pull out kitchen faucet. Does this model have the adjustment on the top in the cartridge that I can turn right for colder water as currently it's either really hot and moving it slightly it
Hi, Curious Consumer.
Thank you for your question. There is an adjustment on the cartridge to make the temperature of the faucet hotter, but if the faucet is either all hot or all cold, and no warm mix, we do recommend to replace the valve cartridge assembly, RP50587.

Hello. Does the df470 pull out kitchen faucet have a scald guard, if not how do I adjust as plumber installed the faucet but the water is really hot and when I try to move it slightly it goes to cold, can't get a warm setting, the setting is so sensitive
Hi, Curious Consumer!
Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your Delta faucet. There is not a scald guard adjustment for your faucet. We would recommend to replace the seats and springs, RP4993, the cam and packing, RP61 and the ball assembly, RP70, to fix the temperature issue.

Wand Hose Replacement
I ordered a wand/hose replacement kit for my 470 model faucet. The new hose is different than the original and has a different connector that attaches to the faucet under the sink. My original was like what I see in Part#RP44647 (and attached "Old Hose" image, but the new is the attached "New Hose" image. The connector goes on fine and fits snug, but without a proper clip to hold it, the hose will pop off as pressure is increased. I did try to see if I could make the old clip work, but without the open areas to insert it in the lifter connector of the old hose, it doesn't hold it.
Thank you for your question! The hose that is included with the wand assembly will only work with Diamond Seal Technology (DST) faucets. If you have a previous version, please remove the black adapter from the back of the wand assembly and use the original hose.

How do I tighten up my faucet so it does not slide around at the base?
It is a 14 year old Signature (Saxony?) single handle, one hole, pullout kitchen faucet. The mounting bracket no longer is snug against the underside of the granite, but I cannot seem to see/find any nut to tighten. Nor do I see how I can get a wrench up there to tighten any such nut if there is one. Is there a nut and a special wrench? And, if so, where is the nut and what does the wrench look like and where can I find one? Thanks.
Hi Ray, Thank you for your question. The Saxony model 473 faucet uses a mounting bracket, a nut, and wrench to secure the faucet to the counter top. The RP11722 nut and wrench is available as a separate item. You can order the part online at deltafaucet.com or from your local retailer or wholesaler that sells Delta products. Here is a link to the product.

I ordered a replacement hose for my faucet and it does not fit the faucet.
I waited over a month to get the hose because the wrong zip code was put on the first package. Now I get ready to install the hose and it is a different coupling. This is SO FRUSTRATING. Any suggestions?
Hi Hazelnut, We are sorry that you are experiencing a problem with your faucet. From the pictures it appears that a portion of the old hose is still connected to your wand. Once that piece is removed from the wand the new hose should screw into place.

My kitchen faucet model # 470 is leaking from under the handle, this developed after replacing the hose, I believe I have to replace the ball and cam
Assembly along with the seats and springs. I am unable to locate these items at a hardware store.
Hi Scott, Thank you for your question. The RP3614 single handle repair kit should solve your leak issue. The kit includes the cam and packing, o-rings, seats and springs, and tool. In most cases cleaning the RP70 ball assembly is all that is necessary. The RP3614 is available to order on deltafaucet.com.
