Product Technologies:

  • MagnaTite Docking: Delta's patented MagnaTite Docking Technology uses a powerful integrated magnet to securely hold your Delta kitchen faucet's pull-down spray in place when not in use. A light tug releases the wand for total flexibility and a full range of motion. When docking the wand after use, the MagnaTite Docking mechanism will guide the spray securely back into place.
  • Diamond Seal: Delta DIAMOND Seal Technology utilizes a ceramic disc valve with a real diamond coating to produce a faucet that will last up to 5 million uses. That's an amazing 10 times the industry standard, guaranteeing a lifetime of leak-free, trouble-free performance.
  • Eco Friendly: Through a number of technologies and innovations, Delta’s Eco Friendly faucets achieve the impossible: A faucet that feels like more water, while actually conserving water. There are many advantages to this beyond helping protect our nation’s water resources. First, Delta’s Eco Friendly faucets splash less; you won’t have to wipe your counters as much. Second, they use less hot water, preserving your hot water supply and reducing associated water-heating costs. Third, you will feel a little less guilty leaving the water running for longer periods.
  • Touch Clean: Only Delta offers faucets equipped with Touch Clean soft, rubber nubbins (spray holes) that allow you to easily wipe away calcium and lime build-up with the touch of a finger. This is particularly helpful for areas with hard water.

  • Overall Height: 14-1/2" (measured from counter top to highest point of faucet)

Delta 16968-SSSD-DST Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking faucet! This faucet is a great centerpiece to our kitchen's got a great design and is very functional. Great product!
Date published: 2010-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a faucet that works! Fantastic faucet that works as advertised. It was very easy to install as it was a single hole installation. I did not install the soap dispenser and would love to find a counter-top model that matches the faucet. The detachable spray head works perfectly and the magnetic connection fits tightly with no slack. Well worth the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy! My kitchen faucet started leaking and the handyman chose this faucet as a replacement. As he was installing it, a part inside the hoses broke. He returned it to the home improvement store, brought in another one, and it broke, too! I would not buy another faucet from this line. This has also soured me on choosing any other faucets from Delta. Caveat emptor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations In replacing an old kitchen faucet, we did a lot of research. We liked the style of this but were concerned when we read someone had problems with the magnet closure or the stainless finish. We find it very easy to keep clean, the magnet works perfectly unless you twist the pullout to one side. It is not difficult to get into the habit of turning the water off correctly (also mentioned by some as a problem). We love it and would recommend it to anyone. We had it installed using Faucet Direct installation plan. Worked great and excellent price for our area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 4 years later and still love it I bought this faucet 4 years ago from this website. I still love the design and finish. It is a timeless elegant design and I even recommended this to my mother who is considering getting a replacement faucet. My husband like the 'shower' mode, and I like the 'stream' mode and this faucet has both with an easy switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laundry Sink Upgrade I installed this faucet in the laundry sink with two dispensers, one for hand soap and an extra one for hand lotion. Installation was easy and my wife loves this upgrade! It looks great and filled the three holes in the existing SS sink.
