Delta 473 faucet very loose where it meets the granite

My delta 473 faucet is very loose where the faucet meets the granite. I've looked underneath and do not something that looks like it could be tightened other than a rectangular plate that is notched for the pullout hose and H and C water.

do I disasemble the faucet to get down to a ring that needs tightening?

This is a view from the underside of our sink. Is this what you were talking about? The steel plate is W-shaped (upside down in this case) and has a single nut larger than 3/4". It's almost impossible to fit a wrench up there to tighten it.

There should be a brass nut where the pull out connects to if you tighten that it should tighten it down to your granite nice

How do i remove the caprp50 to a delta faucet 473-sssd that appears to be cross threaded?


IF CROSS THREADED YOU MAY HAVE TO USE TWO PIPE WRENCHES ONE TO HOLD FAUCET IN PLACE THE OTHER TO TRY TO UNSCREW IT MAYBE YOU COULD USE SOME WD40 OR SOME RUST REMOVEL SPAY TO GET IT LOOSE IF IT IS SO TIGHT THAT IT JUST WILL NOT BUDGE YOU MAY HAVE TO CUT IT AND BUY A WHOLE NEW FAUCET.

After a recent water main break, our Delta Model 473 kitchen faucet now has very low water pressure. It also continues to flow for a few seconds after turning it off. I tried unscrewing the screen and...


Check the screen at the hose connection under the sink. Check the hoses for any large debris in them. Verify that the water pressure coming from the water outlets under the sink is good. There is obviously a restriction somewhere...you just need to locate it.

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!
