Installation Information


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Coordinated with New Faucet I had chrome and replaced with this to match new faucet. Not a perfect match but very close. I had to replace the previous base with the one Delta provided. A very simple task, taking less than 10mins.

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 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.

Is the air gap necessary when installing an RO unit?

How do I clean my Delta air gap? Water seeps out of the hole onto the counter. I can't figure out what to remove to run a bottle brush down the tube to clear it. Thanks.

What does an air gap do and when is it needed?

Asked by: xhotcapp
Hi xhotcapp, Thank you for your question. The model 72020 Air Gap is installed to prevent backflow or back siphonage 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. You may need to check your local building codes to see if one is required in your area. Thanks, Dave
