Rated 1 out of 5 by from water all over counter I bought the air gap and cover to replace one that the builder had literally left under the sink. I have run the dishwasher 2x's and each time, water bubbles out of the air gap onto my counters.... The plumbers were out today to make sure that no lines were clogged: they weren't. They disconnected and reconnected the lines: tested it again....water all over the counters. There is a flaw in the design of the plastic air gap...have to go to a plumbing store to get a new plastic air gap... (The cover is fine..so far.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Amazon sends unbranded boxes The only place I could find to buy the "SS" color to match the faucet finish we want was amazon. Ordered 2 (we're getting 2 dishwashers!), and received two boxes from them, neither identifies as being a "Delta" product as the description indicated. Not sure where else to find them as none of the authorized dealers carry this finish. Can't order them from here because Delta doesn't personally sell their own products. Disappointed my faucet I was so excited to get back (I had a Touch2O at my last house that I sold) might have to go back for a brand that offers matching code required accessories :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cover was perfect color match for my needs can't comment on the function, bought it only for the polished brass cover to match a new Danze kitchen faucet. The color was nearly identical to the Danze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Air Gap This is a quality air gap from Delta. It's much better than the cheap ones you'd buy at the home improvement stores. The Delta air gap has thicker metal and better looking chrome than the others. The trick to installing this is to set the plastic mounting assembly at the correct height- if it's set too high then the chrome cap won't cover it entirely. When you've got it set just right the chrome cap comes all the way down to sit right on the sink surface.

What exactly is the kitchen air gap, what is it used for and how and where is it installed. Is it something that helps with the water pressure?

Asked by: Doowop47
Hello Doowop47, Thank you for your question regarding the Delta Kitchen Air Gap and I am happy to help you today. An air gap is installed to prevent backflow or backsiphonage of non potable water into potable water systems. It is most often installed for use with dishwashers. The air gap prevents the dirty water leaving the dishwasher from getting back into the dishwasher and are typically installed on the counter nearest to the dishwasher. To install the air gap, you will need to connect the larger leg below the counter to a garbage disposal or sink trap and the smaller leg to the hose from the dishwasher. Only the cover and a few inches of the body will be visible from above the counter as the collar gasket and nut will hold the air gap in place. Please do not hesitate to give us a call on our warranty line at 800-345-3358 if we can assist you with anything going forward. Thank you, Brandy

Is the 2 1/8” measurement not include the collar at the bottom of the cover?

I want to purchase a new Delta pull down faucet in Venetian Bronze and I want to replace my current chrome air gap cover with this one to match. My current cover measures a little more than 2 1.8”. I was wondering if this one will fit.
