Some important Question and Answers for your help:
|Question:||What would cause low water pressure?|
|Answer:||Not the faucet. You have a 1/4 turn shutoff in line that would be a pain for someone to partially close. I’ve noticed water pressure differences in my subdivision based on what I believe is the other resident’s water demand for lawn and garden sprinkling.|
|Question:||My Delta faucet is flashing a red light and will not turn on. ?|
|Answer:||It’s time to change the batteries! They’re in that black plastic case with wires coming out of it that’s under the sink. Easy peasy.|
|Question:||What is the spout length?|
|Answer:||Thank you for your question. The spout is 10 5/8″ in length.|
|Question:||Does the water pressure need to be adjusted each time or does it remember where it was the last time it was used when touched on and off?|
|Answer:||It knows no adjustments needed just touch it|
|Question:||What size batteries does this faucet take and how many?|
|Answer:||Without getting under the sink and looking I believe it was three or four double a. I have had this for over a year and have never change the batteries. The only bad thing about this faucet is how much of a jack ass you look like tapping other people’s faucets just to realize that not how all faucets work!|
