Faucet Good, But Watch Out for the Sprayer Connection
It's a decent faucet, but with one problem that you're likely not seeing on here.
We bought this model without the sprayer since we already had a sprayer. Unfortunately, Delta does not accommodate universal fittings with this particular model (even though other Delta models have in the past.) The only fix here is to buy their complete spray nozzle and hose package for $40. It's bad enough that they won't sell you only the parts you need, but I've seen enough bad reviews of their sprayer to figure that we were doing pretty well with the one we've already got.
Nowhere on the packaging and in the promotions did I read anything about this faucet using non-standard connections. Granted, they never said it *wasn't* non-standard, but I got lazy and assumed the best. Now I've got two choices: either do without a sprayer or spend $110 on what I thought was going to be a $70 faucet (while also doing away with the perfectly good sprayer we've already got.)
But it is a decent faucet, I'll give them that.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Delta 101-DST Faucet. We do appreciate your feedback. Feedback like yours helps us to become a better company and help us to make updates and modifications to our faucets in the future.I am sorry for any confusion the faucet description may have caused. We do recommend the Delta 175-DST Faucet that does include the sprayer assembly. Here is a link to the faucet:

This is the perfect faucet for my kitchen sink, however, it came with the sprayer hook-up line, of which, was not in the description of this product. I don't have a sprayer, and no need for the hookup lines for a sprayer, especially since I need all the room I can get to get the hot and cold line in the hole. I MADE sure the faucet I selected did not have a mount base nor a sprayer as I can't use a mount base.
Home Depot had no problem with the return except for the fact that they told me the box is missing the mount base. The woman pulls out the description(s) of the faucet showing the mount base, and I told her look at the box, there is no mount piece. This faucet came with a ring around the faucet instead of the mount base. Also there are maybe 6 diagrams of faucets in the manual and you just can't point any model in the manual description. I offered to show her my kitchen sink and faucet to show her I made sure I had no mount base, but she declined (with an attitude) and refunded my money.
I will go to Home Depot to get the correct faucet without the sprayer hook-up lines, and take a picture of the inside of the box JUST in case I have to return it.

Nice faucet and we're happy with it. When I installed it, I had to cut the pex lines. The instructions can guide you about how to work with the pex lines. I hooked up the pex lines to the existing old water valves and didn't have any leaks. It was pretty straight forward. The only thing I didn't like too much about the faucet was the mounting bracket that clamps the faucet to the sink from underneath. It's hard to explain unless you've ever done one before, but it's like a half crescent circle that tightens up underneath the sink. They've had that design for many years, but I think it could be improved upon. Sometimes, if you don't get that clamp situated just right then it might not tighten down properly, and your faucet could wobble. Also, that clamp can work great on one type of sink, but maybe not so great on different type of sink. Overall I think it's a great faucet. I just wish the mounting clamp was a bit more secure.
I purchased this faucet on line to be picked up at the store. Got there in 2 days. Great. It looks good.
There are couple of issues that merit awareness.
The install is very straight forward,"but".... (1) The base spacer and gasket must be glued with water proof adhesive, simply because it wont stay still while you are screwing the faucet to the counter top. (2) The water tubes are extremely long and not flexible. They are permanently installed on the faucet end, so it was a challenge, to say the least to install them to the water source. That is it . It looks great and works flawlessly (3) I feel that for eighty bucks, they could instal a flex line tube or at least make it so one could replace it with different type and size.
