I have a delta touch20 kitchen faucet. The water trickles most of the time, and it makes a loud vibrating sound that can be heard through out the house. How can this be fixed.

SOURCE: low pressure and flow on hot water side of single handle faucet

It could be one of two problems, one simple, one serious.

  • Easy fix
  1. Turn off hot water angle stop under sink to faucet.
  2. Remove supply line from hot angle stop.
  3. Place end of supply line in a small bucket to catch some water.
  4. Turn on cold water for a couple of seconds and backflush debris from faucet.
  5. Reconnect supply line.
  6. Turn on angle stop and test
  • Complex fix
If you have steel pipes you may be experiencing reduced flow due to corrosion in your pipes. Reduced hot water pressure in the kitchen faucet is usually the first sign since this is the faucet that is most used in the home.

Repiping is a job for a professional. Another symptom you may need a repipe is orange colored or rusty water.

SOURCE: DELTA MODEL 470-WH LOW WATER FLOW AT KITCHEN FAUCET

This could be a couple of things.

  1. First remove the aerator from the wand and make sure you have plenty of flow with it off.
  2. If there is flow clean or replace the aerator.
  3. Remove the wand and look between the hose connection and the wand there should be a screen between them. Remove the screen and clean or replace.
  4. Make sure hose is kinking under the sink.
If you need a diagram of the faucet with part numbers here is the link:

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: delta kitchen faucet mixed spray...diverter problem???

No a pull out sprayer problem is different.

First try this. Pull out the sprayer and remove from hose by turning nut that connects sprayer to hose. If you can get someone to help you it would be nice since the hose can go down into the faucet and might be trouble to retrieve. Look in the connection on the sprayer where the hose connects and look at the screen. If the screen is plugged or dirty clean and reinsert. If you can't clean it replace it. If this isn't working go to the next suggestion below.

In the spray head of the faucet there is a build up of deposits from use and or water hardness. Here is the link to the Delta site.

Delta Faucets

If you find you faucet model order a new spray head. Once these go bad they usually need replacing.

Hope this helps and please rate this!

SOURCE: How do I remove delta 470 kitchen faucet? It won't swivel

If the 470 is typical, there should be two large nylon nuts on the bottom of the faucet tubes that hold the faucet to the sink. First, turn the water off, then open the faucet to drain any pressure. Next, disconnect the feed lines (hot and cold) that connect to the faucet from under the sink (be prepared for some water back flow, so paper towels would be a good idea). After the feed lines are disconnected, you should be able to reach up (usually behind the back of the sink basin) and access the two large nylon nuts (one on the cold and one on the hot). These nuts typically have raised portions so that you can get a grip on them. If you are lucky, you will be able to turn them (lefty loosey, righty tighty) by hand. If not you may have to work for some time with various pliers or other tools getting them to turn. Once you have them off, the faucet will simply lift up from the sink. Installation of another faucet should simply be the reverse procedure.
Good luck.

Just installed a Delta Touch20 kitchen faucet. When using the touch feature the faucet turns down to a trickle but does not completely shut off, even after several minutes. Any suggestions?


Check installation manual if there is some indication about some kind of advice for this case. If there is no indication for the user, most probably your Delta Touch20 kitchen faucet is defective. Check your warranty terms about how you can return it to be changed or send it for service, so probably you'll have to uninstall it.

There could be a clog anywhere between the diverter and the sprayer. Sometimes the line collapses from age and has to be replaced. Look under the sink to check for leaks.

Delta comes with a limited lifetime warranty. call them to get free parts. I believe you will need to check several things. Remove the spray head from the sprayer hose, point the hose into the sink drain and turn the faucet on. If it no longer makes the banging noise, replace the spray head. You need to look for a leaking spray hose under the sink also. If the faucet is making noise, replace the ball and cam assembly under the faucet handle. One other thing that I have run into is that the shut-off valves under the sink can also go bad and cause banging and vibration.

Pressure surging thru Delta single handle faucet. The water flow starts and stops suddenly when the faucet is more than half way on. Same for hot and cold.


I don't know if this is your problem or not, But I had a new faucet and it did the same thing. I found little tiny pieces of polishing media stuck in side the faucet. Every time you turn on the water it comes out fast , then trickles, drove me nuts, I took it back and got another, no problem, hope this helps.

The kitchen sink makes a loud popping noise


Try removing the aerator on the faucet. If that resolves the popping sound, try replacing it with one that allows for a higher flow of water. (Also the existing aerator may be clogged).

Our delta kitchen faucet with the sprayer and faucet all in one started losing pressure 48hours ago and it is down to a trickle now. We have taken it all apart and can't find a blockage. Any ideas?


Point your water line into a bucket and turn the water on at the wall. If you get a good flow, we'll go back to the faucet. No kinks in the supply lines, right? The reason I ask is this was reminiscent of a recent problem where my friend could get hot water to the faucet, and it would slowly go down to a trickle. The problem was that the supply hose had a bit of a kink in it, and got choked off when the line got hot.
OK, good flow into the bucket. Sometimes the supply lines can delaminate, and choke the water off as well. Since you have a sprayer faucet combo, make sure that the flex hose that dispenses the water, and has the weight on it to retract the nozzle back up doesn't have a kink either. Remove the spray nozzle, and try the faucet, holding onto the hose. It's possible that the spray selector could have a problem, so check the spray head and diffuser. With the water on, push the sprayer button, and see if the problem might be there. Remove the aerator on the end of the sprayer, and check the screens for pluggage. My guess is that the issue is in the spray head.
Best regards, --W/D--

Delta Kitchen Single Faucet 470 suddenly would not give water


Debris in the valve is a fairly common cause for stopping water flow in single lever valves. You can first check the aereator and remove any debris that may be there at the faucet itself. Then you can try to remove the ball at the control lever. You have to be careful and make sure that you do not drop any parts. Especially if this is a recent installation, you may find a large piece of something there.

Water just trickles out


Some of the new units have stops installed on the valve itself. Make sure they are open.

Valve in Delta faucet closes as water warms up


Yes, you are on the right track, but Deltas use a fancier kit inside them. It is quite a bit pricier than an O ring, but will solve the problem. It is not hard to install at all.
