I dont know for sure. I think it is 1/8", but mine is slipping.
Better yet, they can be fixed. First turn off the shut off valve below, then take off the handle and the nut below it and then uscrew the shaft and you'll see the washer or wh…at remains of it. Take it to the store and choose another washer. re-build it the opposite way.
delta faucets have just your standard hot and cold lines and you first turn off water and then open faucet and they you will see to tubes on back side of sink and under sink a…nd most are made to remove with just your hands and they there are two plastic nuts that hold the delta faucet on and spin them off and then lift faucet off and install new one or you can install any replacement parts while in there just follow the tubes and they will tell you where to un screw and remove. The delta.com website is wonderful to navigate and they have detailed diagrams and directions, as well as email chat. I've used them several times with great results.

Pioneer Industries is a second generation family owned and operated faucet manufacturer based in Commerce, California. Pioneer operates its own manufacturing facility in Taiwa…n. In 2006 Pioneer Industries acquired Central Brass, a U.S. faucet manufacturer that has been in business since 1895. Pioneer's Builder and Deco lines are patterned after Delta and many of the parts interchange. On January 1, 2010 California's AB 1953 goes into effect. This legislation, which eliminates lead from plumbing materials, has caused both Pioneer and Delta to make substantial changes in the construction of their faucets.
All faucets remove in the same way. First close the valves at floor level (or so). Now take off the pipes at the faucet level and then remove the nuts that hold the faucet to …the countertop. (you will need a plumber's wrench for this. They are in almost every hardware store and Home Depot and cost $7-10. ) When these nuts are removed, you just pull the faucet out the top, and replace it exactly the opposite way. -If your pipes to the shutoff are old grey plastic, or even older metal ones, then I'd advise getting the new style braided SS ones. They are much easier to to fit and totally problem free. Well worth the $6-8 for both.
I just spoke with a representative from Delta Faucet. I am a Kitchen Designer & I had a customer who wanted a faucet made in USA. The very professional Customer Service rep fr…om Delta Faucet told me that some faucets were made in USA & others weren't. I gave her two model numbers to check if they were made in the USA. After being placed on hold for about 5 minutes and receiving a warm apology after the rep came back on the line, I was told that she couldn't give me that information, She informed me that the manufacturing origin stamp is on the box. I just needed to look on the box where I was purchasing the faucet to see where it was made. Apparently, the information is only on the box & Customer Service doesn't have the information. This kind of throws a wrench into purchasing a special order item, so I'm off to call the warehouse & find out if the faucets I chose are indeed made in the USA.
Replacing any kitchen faucet can be easy or extremely difficult depending on how old your old faucet is and what kind of K sink you have. If you look under your k sink and see… chrome supply lines to your faucet then you are better off replacing those as well, and in many cases I usually replace the supply lines just to be sure they wont leak with stainless braided supply lines. Turn off the water stops and once you have the supply lines disconnected then you can (which sometimes its very hard) disconnect the faucet nuts which hold the faucet to the sink using a basin wrench. A lot of new faucets come with install instructions and I would just follow those instructions installing the new faucet and if you don't have the instructions then just download them from the faucet brands site. If you can not get the faucet holding nuts off from under the sink because of corroded its almost impossible then I would remove the K sink and cut the faucet nuts off with a hacksaw or sawzil with a fine tooth blade from underneath the sink flange or if your sink seems to be unmovable then cut the faucet off flush with the top of the sink. .
Assuming this is a pressure balancing Delta such as a 13 or 14 series, under the handle, once taken off, you will see a brass faucet stem that has a round disc underneath it. …To adjust the temperature of the water coming out of the valve, pull the disc back to a position where it is possible to remove the Rotational Limit Stop which is a small lever located behind the disc and readjust the teeth engagement position to the desired temperature. Clockwise will decrease the outlet temperature, counterclockwise will increase the outlet temperature. Temperature change per tooth (notch) could be 4Â° - 16Â°F based on inlet water conditions. Repeat as necessary. Push disc until fully seated. Failure to re-install Disc after setting Rotational Limit Stop could result in scald injury. After reassembling the faucet, make sure the cold water flows from the valve first. Make sure water flowing from the valve does not exceed 120Â°F or the maximum allowed by your local plumbing code.
Delta Faucet Co. isa company owned by Masco Corporation out of Detroit, MI. In 1971 Masco introduced the Peerless Faucet for the DIY market. The design of the Peerless Faucet …line is almost identical to the Delta Faucets and the internal parts are the same. I do believe that Peerless Faucets are still owned by Masco Corporation.
Yes, Delta faucets are made in US. -For now anyway.
While Kohler faucets are generally a little higher priced than Delta, they are typically a higher quality item. Each company offers a variety of faucet options, and Kohler doe…s provide a lower-end option that is less pricey, the Kohler Simplice. Customers will need to decide what kind of features they are looking for, and if price is the most important aspect of the purchase.
Delta faucet parts are available directly from Delta or from Home Depot, E Replacement Parts, Amazon, eFaucets, Lowe's, Hardware World, and Faucet Depot.
One can purchase a Delta bathroom faucet from many different stores and retailers. Some examples that sell these faucets include eFaucets, Home Depot, and Plumbing Depot.
