Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 267 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid, sturdy, works beautifully. I love this faucet! I am very picky about plumbing fixtures, and worried that all the parts weren't in the package since it obviously was a return; the bags were open and parts strewn around. However, the plumber checked carefully and it was complete. This faucet is pretty and works smoothly, with easy-on and off, it has super water pressure and is such an improvement over my old, cheap faucet. My handyman said I could have installed it myself, but I found the instructions to be poorly-written, dense, and difficult to follow. He did fine with them, however. The poor instructions are my only complaint. A glossary would have been nice for those with limited plumbing vocabulary. June 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Looks great in my kitchen! I've had this faucet in my kitchen for a few years now. (Not sure of the exact date) It's worked fine and looked great... up until now. But it's not that bad. The faucet does not seem to 'snap shut' (closed) when I push the handle. It does shut the water off, but I need to 'hunt' for that certain spot before it shuts off completely. It's not a big deal and I know it's an easy fix with the necessary part available for free from Delta. I'll get to it soon. Still... I do like this faucet very much. November 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to Install! This faucet was easy to install (I did it myself!) and is also easy to use. The magnet works well. I replaced the existing faucet because it would not swivel without putting up a fight, and the delta faucet glides effortless! My only concern is that sometimes I wonder if I actually do need caulk in some areas, because it sometimes seems that water would drip into the tiny crevices between where the faucet hits the escutcheon and where the escutcheon hits the sink. All in all , I am very pleased. July 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my new faucet! I recently purchased the Delta Leland single handle kitchen faucet. I chose the chrome finish to match my older sink. I have been very pleased with it. I love the magnetic docking system. It always clicks tightly after retracting the spray head. It looks beautiful, and doesn't drip. I did not install it myself, as I was not replacing the sink, and removing the old faucet was a bit tricky. But the plumber told me he loved installing Delta faucets. I highly recommend this faucet. June 12, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by great faucet but hard to install I bought this faucet to replace an aging one in a house I had just purchased. The overall quality and performance are excellent but the installation was difficult. I hired a plumber to install and he had a very difficult time installing the nut to secure the faucet to the sink. Given that this was a professional plumber and he had a very difficult time installing the faucet, I hope that the engineers @ delta look into making the installation easier. June 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Too Early for a Thorough Review But.... I hired a professional plumber to install the faucet just last month, so it is too early to submit a thorough review at this time. My 5-star rating is based on the following: it's attractive and looks classy, it fits fine even though the ledge of my kitchen window juts out, and it's a good height for washing pots and other large/deep items. I purchased it on Amazon after calling Delta (first) to ensure Delta has a contract with Amazon and that it is the real deal. June 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It! My old faucet had developed some issues after 12 years of use. When I called Delta for replacement parts we found that my faucet model had been discontinued. Since Delta offers a lifetime warranty and stands behind their product, the representative was able to replace my faucet with a new, similar model. The new faucet was very easy to install, is very pretty and looks perfect in my kitchen. I am VERY happy with it. I especially love the magnetic return on the wand. Very simple and easy to use. Thank you, Delta, for meaning what you say when you say lifetime warranty! I cannot say enough about the excellent customer service! I will always buy Delta. March 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wish these 2 things were different Excellent quality, feels/looks expensive. Like the magnet, adjustable spray and pull out nozzle. Takes a few uses to learn how to get close to the temperature you want. To fine tune the amount of water needs 2 hands; when using 1 hand you will typically over or under shoot the water stream pressure; however this is fairly common with most 1 handle faucets (I think).

Hi Kneeley, Thank you for your question!
The button on the spray wand for the model 9178-DST will stay diverted to the mode it was set at by the customer. It will not switch to a default when turned off.

Reversibility

Customer avatar
by
JC
Minneapolis, MN, USA
The staff’s answer to the question of installing the Delta 9178 SS DST backwards so the handle is on the left says the logo will be facing the back. There is no logo showing on the Delta website photo of the faucet. Also, do I assume correctly that this reversibility to the Delta 9178 AR DST as well since the "AR" refers to the finish?

Hi JC, Thank you for your question!
The 9178-AR-DST ( Arctic Stainless Steel finish) has the Delta name engraved on the bottom of the spout where it swivels. The faucet can be installed with the handle facing the left hand side. Please keep in mind that will change the operation of the handle.

Hi Bill,

Thank you for your question. Our Diamond Seal Technology (DST) faucets have PEX supply lines. These eliminate the need for additional riser hoses and provide for easier installation and fewer leak points.

Answers

Answer: 
Hello Sophie,

Thanks for your question!

It's always a good idea to take the cabinet hardware and other accessories to a Delta Faucet showroom to see if your chosen hardware will match the faucet and vice versa. The color of the hardware will ultimately depend on the manufacturer, so we couldn't say if it would definitely match. However, Venetian Bronze would probably match an oil rubbed bronze finish, but whether or not it looks good together is ultimately up to you.

I hope this helps!
