Signature Pullout Spray Kitchen Faucet with Diamond Seal and Touch Clean Technologies
Delta 470 Promo
worst experienece with this faucet.
1. 2 yrs ago. water leaked through the pull out pipe. damaged entire basement sealing. had to spend 1000 in fixing basement and 160 + (80 installation) for a new delta faucet. Biggest mistake I made in purchasing the same model.
2. 1 year ago had problem with clogged tube and delta promptly sent me replacement for free.
3. today 10/15/2010 we just realized that the pipe is leaking again and to my shock basement sealing is wet again.
I will never buy a delta in my life again. I am writing this review while fixing the faucet. Just imaging my frustration.
Thanks for reading !

My second purchase of this item. The first one bought a couple of years ago started leaking. Bought the repair valve insert but it does not work in my older unit. Also bought a whole new faucet presumed to be identical to my old one but that is only in what you see above the sink. Old one had nice flexible metal braided hoses, easy to install. The new one has stiff plastic hose and I haven't worked up the wherewithall to attempt the installation. Might have to just call in a plumber or jury rig the installation if the plastic tubing kinks. I guess like every other manufacturer. cost saving changes are never ending.

Sticky Black Goop
We have had to replace the hose on this model once already. Now sticky black goop is coming out of the faucet into our drinking water. When I took off the hand sprayer it was filled with sticky black goop the consistency of wood glue, The agent at Delta told us that the hose lining in this model has a history of breaking down and clogging up the hand sprayer. Her solution offered no apology. However, she gave us the tip to soak the hand sprayer in vinegar and water. I have no idea how long we have been filling up our ice trays and drinking glasses with the lining of the hose,

This is an elegant and very functional kitchen faucet. It has a modern look to it (which is what I wanted). The range of motion is excellent -- covers both sink bowls nicely. It can be switched easily between spray and stream. The end is easily removed for use as a hand unit. Important point: the shaft which extends through the counter has sufficient length to accomodate the thickness of the counter top (in our case, granite). My plumber had warned me that this is not always the case. Very good value for the money.

We actually purchased two of these (Delta 470-DST) at different times; both were black: one for our kitchen and one for our laundry room. We have had several complements on the faucets. We also purchased two matching soap dispensers (Kohler K-9619).
My wife has commented several times that she enjoys the utility of the pressure of both settings, regular stream and spray in the kitchen and laundry room sinks. They work better than our previous faucets.

Great looking faucet
We have only had the Delta 470 DST installed for a month but so far it is working great (the water output is wonderful) and looks great. I have a white solid surface sink and had a Moen white faucet before. I was never happy with the output of water and the finish turned yellow over time so I decided I would go with a Delta chrome faucet this time. I was a little apprehensive about how chrome would look with my white sink --but I am very happy with it. With care in keeping the water wiped off of it after use, it seems like it will stay nice and shiny. We did pay a very good reputable plumber to install it for us which I feel is important. I am trusting Delta that it will be a faucet we will be enjoying for a long time to come.

I replaced my faucet with the same identical faucet. It came in a timely manner and is the exact same faucet. I would definately make purchases again from this company.
One improvement that could be made is to let the customer know that Delta guarantees their product for life and I did not realize that until I received my new faucet. However, I sent the old faucet to Delta and they are reimbursing me for the purchase of my new faucet.

So far so good
It's hard to give a review that states the product is great until it's been in service for a couple of years. I had a similar product by another manufacturer and was really disappointed, so I thought I'd try this faucett.
Nice features, easy to install. The only thing I dislike is that it came with non-detachable hoses that are not very pliable. I'm afraid that they could become brittle and break sometime in the future. I would have prefered to install braided hoses that attach separately.
I've had it installed for a month and no problems.

I like this faucet a lot but have 2 minor complaints:
1. The style lever/valve that Delta faucets have makes it very difficult to get the right temperature. It is either too hot or not hot enough. You have to give it a slight "tap" to get it right where you want -way too touchy.
2. In certain positions, the faucet makes a high pitched singing noise. Not loud but it annoys my wife.

I really can't overstate how pleased I am with this faucet. Its beauty is apparent, but in a plumbing fixture, I am of course most concerned with quality, durability, and functionality. Upon inspection and installation of this faucet, its quality, design, and construction seem exceptional. And it functions better than any other kitchen faucet I have owned (I'm approaching 70).
I'll have get back about durability, but the description of Delta's "diamond seal" technology--claimed to make the valve function ten times longer than the industry standard--may not be exaggerated based on how effortlessly and well the valve operates. I'm sorry if this review sounds too good to be true, but I'm really impressed with the quality and design of this faucet and would like to get the word out.
