Lahara Single Handle Lavatory Faucet with Touch2O.xt™ Technology 3.3 5 9 9
Very nice product. We purchased this faucet as a replacement. The no touch technology is awesome and is really great for the grandkids since they do not need to touch anything when they wash their hands. They can simply waive their hand under the faucet -- it automatically turns off when they are drying their hands. It was a little tricky at first to get the hang of it but now it is second nature. May 21, 2013
This Faucet is Terrible This faucet is terrible. The touch and motion sensors go off randomly and cannot be adjusted! I bought this faucet because we just installed a similar Moen faucet in the kitchen which works flawlessly. Unfortunately Moen doesn't make a bathroom faucet with motion sensors. January 13, 2015
Fanastic faucet when it works. I love this faucet when it works, but it has stopped working twice in the year that I've had it because of defective solenoids. Delta customer service has been excellent in supplying the necessary repair parts in speedy fashion, but it is frustrating to be without a bathroom faucet for a week or two every six months. June 29, 2012
touch faucet design problem First the LED light for the sensor does not work. Delta is sending a replacement but I have to disassemble and install (again). Worse the design of the solenoid valve location interferes with the drain rod - rubs the plastic pipes and valve box. I cannot installed this rod (to the sink drain) because of the potential for a leak. You cannot move the box to either side without putting it in a bind. A touch drain for the sink doesn't work due to the tail piece is metal and interferes with the sensors. I you can live without a sink drain, you can use this faulty product. Also, Delta reps kept saying no manuf defect.---Right! January 15, 2014
Finish is deteriorating and pitting While I am quite happy with the function of the faucet, its exterior finish is pitting like a facial blemish. This is only 4 months after installation. A deciding factor in purchasing the Delta product, besides its technology, was its durability experienced with our kitchen faucet installed four years ago. Now I have go to trouble of contacting the company and paying again for the installation of a replacement January 16, 2015
Lahara Single Handle Touch2Oxt Bathroom Faucet Typical high quality Delta fixture. It was my first Touch installation. No issues at all with install. However, the fixture has cost me extra money. Two days after install, bride declares Kitchen fixtures must now be Touch activated. Sigh. February 6, 2014
Fun to use! This facet is fun to use and conserves water. The elongated spout makes bending over the sink a thing of the past. The facet was installed easily by a professional handyman. Easy to keep clean. April 10, 2012
Touch / motion works great Great looking. Touch turns on / off for about 60 seconds. Motion sensor turns on for about 5 seconds. Both work great. Kohler includes everything needed to hook up in box. March 28, 2013

Battery pack location

Additional information about OceanMist could not be loaded.
The installation manual shows the battery pack on the bottom of the cabinet, 2 inches away from the back, and 2 inches away from the side.

I anticipate this location is going to be problematic for me. I have Container Store boxes that I slide into the cabinet. They will bump into the battery pack and rip it up.

Even if I initially remember not to this, I'm certain someone else will forget.

What problem would be caused by taping the battery pack to the back of the cabinet wood ?

Answer: 
Hi OceanMist, Thank you for your question. The placement of the battery pack on your model 538T-DST faucet is to keep it a way from plumbing lines and electrical lines that maybe be behind the wall and affect the performance of the faucet. You can try a different placement that solves your issue but does not affect the touch functions of the faucet.
Thanks,
Dave

Re-activate Sensor on 538T-SS-DST

How do you re-activate the sensor on the 538T-SS-DST? It appears the sensor was accidentally de-activated, however, I cannot find re-activating instructions. I tried the same de-activating instructions to 'undo' the procedure and the light flashes blue and red but the sensor still does not work. Removed and re-installed the batteries and it does not re-activate the sensor. The batteries are fully functional as displayed by the strong blue light. The faucet works fine when it is physically touched to start and stop the water flow. I have two of these faucets that were professionally installed at the same time and the other faucet is working ok.

Hi LoveDeltaFaucets, Thank you for your question. The process to reactivating the hands free mode is the same as deactivating the hands free mode. a) Tap spout 6 times within 4 seconds b) The LED indicator light will flash red/blue. c) Tap spout an additional 6 times within 4 seconds of the flashing red/blue LED indicator light. d) The LED indicator light will flash red/blue a second time to indicate the hands free mode has beeen de-activated.(re-activated) e) The tapping sequence can be done with the handle in the ON or OFF position.
Thanks,
Dave

Answer: 
Hi Dave,
You may delete the "Re-activate Sensor on 538T-SS-DST" question in its entirety. After several attempts, I was able to re-activate the sensor feature using the same de-activating procedures. I do however recommend the "Quick Tips" instructions which state the procedures for the sensor that came with the faucet be added to your website. I finally found my hard copy of these "Quick Tips" but would have been helpful if the website had them available. Thanks.

Is there a way to adjust the motion sensitivity of this faucet?

I would like to extend the motion sensitivity of the faucet by a couple of inches. The water shuts off when people are soaping their hands and then takes a couple more waves of the hand (sometimes more) to get it flowing again.

If the proximity can't be adjusted, can the motion sense be shut off completely so it becomes a touch faucet?

thanks!

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 538T-SS-DST is equipped with touch free and a hands free mode. The proximity cannot be adjusted and is 3 inches from the spout. If someone soaping their hands removes their hands from the zone, the water will turn off.

If you would like to de-activate the hands-free mode, please follow these instructions:
1) Tap the spout 6 times within 4 seconds.
2) the LED indicator light will flash red/blue.
3) Tap the spout an additional 6 times within 4 seconds of the flashing red/blue LED indicator light.
4) The LED indicator light will flash red/blue a second time to indicate the hands-free mode has been de-activated.
5) The tapping sequence can be done with the handle in the ON or OFF position.

question re: Delta1's answer...
"is equipped with touch free and a hands free mode"

What is the difference between Touch free and Hands free mode?

Did you mean to say that the 2 modes are
- touch
- hands free (via proximity)

Is the spout two piece?

There is a line on the side of the spout or looks like a line. I want to avoid a faucet that can collect toothpaste, etc. in any design.
