I'm really not happy with the Touch feature and the faucet seems to be getting lower and lower flow rates even though I've cleaned the screen/aerator. I think maybe disconnecting the whole Touch assembly will fix my problem.
Hi, Racer X!
I am happy to help you, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing low flow. The faucet can be used manually by removing the solenoid entirely from the two hoses and connecting the two hoses together with one of the blue clips.
For the low flow, we do recommend to flush the lines and clean the debris screen from the solenoid. To do this, turn your handle to the off position. Get a bucket ready. Disconnect the top hose from your solenoid assembly and point it into a bucket. Turn on the water from your handle and let the water flow through the open hose into the bucket. Does it have adequate flow? Since the hose is disconnected, this is a good time to take the debris screen out of the solenoid. The debris screen is located in the opening of the solenoid where the hose was connected into. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and pull the small debris screen out. Clean the debris screen by rinsing it in running water at another faucet in your home since your kitchen faucet will be disconnected. Install it back into the solenoid and connect everything back up. Try the faucet. Does it still have low flow? If so, turn the handle in the off position. Disconnect the hose from the bottom of the solenoid. Point the whole solenoid into the bucket. Turn the handle in the 'on' position. Flush the solenoid through. This should give you full force at the faucet now. If not, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358.
