Single Handle Kitchen Faucet with Side Spray, Escutcheon, and Diamond Seal Technology from the Collins Collection
They don't make them like they used to...
What a difference twenty years make. That old chrome plated Delta single handle kitchen faucet we had installed in the mid nineties was built like a battleship and meant to last. Constructed of cast iron and copper, it weighed a ton, looked fantastic, and was totally trouble free. By contrast, its replacement, Delta 440-DST, is of flimsy construction, weighing next to nothing. To be fair, the faucet seems to function fairly well after a month's use, but here's my main complaint: the hard plastic gasket provided by Delta that fits between the escutcheon and the stainless sink top does not create a watertight seal. As the faucet escutcheon flexes ever so slightly when the faucet is turned on and off, water on the sink top wicks its way under the gasket where it eventually drips down onto the base of the kitchen cabinet. That means we have to keep a dish below the faucet to catch the drip. Now that's what I call a modern convenience.

Less than 2 year old 440. Developed a hole in neck underside ,spraying water allover. Can not be repaired. Have Delta's every where thats why we bought Delta..WE are very disapointed in this purchase.

Don't waste your money...
Delta used to mean good quality across all lines, but not any more. I know this model isn't exactly a 400 dollar flagship model, but for something that still cost over a hundred - it leaks like mad after just two years of use. Two years! I'm sorry but that's unacceptable, even for a cheap knock-off, much less Delta. Our original plan was to use this faucet for about 4 years until we remodeled our kitchen and bought a really nice faucet. Delta just lost that sale.

Broke in 4 weeks
Our faucet was wonderful....and then for no reason the sprayer started clunking and both started dripping water. It is maybe just a bad one...I don't know!

Nice faucet that looks nice and works well. The faucet was received in good condition, with all parts. No complaints.

Great quality and easy installation
Was looking for a faucet to replace my leaking P-F kitchen faucet that would no longer respond to fixes. I couldn't find parts to replace the worn-out ones, either, so decided to buy a new fixture. For the amount I was willing to spend, this was a great choice! The instructions are clear and the high-quality faucet was easy to install, even with my limited plumbing skills.
