I also have two of these faucets and one of the two has a plugged wand which occurred when the water is turned on after seasonal shutoff.
Is there some way to remove the wand and back flow water through it to flush out debris?
Thank you for your question, Tom. The wand assembly can be unscrewed from the hose for cleaning. We recommend to soak it in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water for about 15 minutes, and then flush backwards through the wand. Please be careful that the hose does not retract into the faucet when the wand is removed.

RP51478 Delta Wand Assembly
Everytime my condo shuts the water, On start up I get small hard granules that plug inside this unit. I remove the hose and the spray from each end and I can clear the larger granules and confirm that the pressure is fine in the hose, but am unable to get to the inside the wand assembly where some seem to get to. Are there instructions to dissemble? I can't be buying a new unit each and every time.
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not recommend taking apart Delta Faucet model # RP51478. We recommend that if you know your water has been turned off, flushing the lines with the wand off to avoid getting the debris inside the wand.
If the debris is made up of hard water or calcium deposits, you may be able to dissolve them with a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and cold water and soaking the head overnight.

I'm not sure of my model#,but what is the defference between part RP60735SS & RP51478SS the part I'm looking for looks like both of them.
These wand ends look Identical except for the cost. Not much in the description.
Hi Blue, Thank you for your question. The wand appearance is the same the flow rate is the major difference. The RP51478SS has a 1.8 gpm flow rate and comes with the faucet. The RP60735SS has a flow rate of 1.5 gpm and is offered as a water saving alternative.
