Rated 1 out of 5 by diyer Not impressed
This was a diy project that included a new sink, faucet Model 9178, disposal and undercounter water filtration system. The Delta faucet was easy to install and the finish on the faucet is beautiful (oil rubbed bronze). It operates very smoothly with just the slightest pressure. I am disappointed in the flow rate of the faucet in that it is very very difficult to get a warm slow flow. Slow flow at hot and cold are easy, but the faucet literally turns off to zero flow when put between hot and cold to obtain warm. The handle has to be pushed out to a faster flow to get warm water. Not impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mflixx quick connect hose FAIL
I've had this installed for about 4 weeks, all was good until...This hair-brained connection (the flex hose has cheap plastic connection and retainer clip) is a disaster - then you're on the hook for a proprietary connection if it fails. Who can wait (how many days) for delta to ship you replacement parts while your sink sits idle? Stay away

Rated 5 out of 5 by KimV 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Scottie Can't select the right temperature on 19939 or 9178
A good Engineer tests their design to ensure it works before going to production. These guys didn't. When fully on, the throw from hot to cold is about 2". You would think that would be adequate, but it isn't enough to get the temperature you want. It is either too hot or too cold. If you try for lower flow, say 1/2 throttle, and then go forward or back to get less flow, it actually shuts almost off at the middle of the setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Prickles 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Golfallen Magnetic catch...genius
Everything about this product is superior to any other brands I inspected at Home Depot... The finish and operation is superb and the magnetic pull down head coupling is the best idea since sliced bread. I am so pleased with this product I sent a similar message to the company from the "contact us" portion of the company web site

Rated 5 out of 5 by John605 Superb Faucet!
I just installed this myself today. It was probably one of the easiest faucet installs I have ever done! The directions were simple and I appreciated that tools came with it! The BIGGEST headache with any plumbing job is making the final connections. There is nothing more frustrating that LEAKS! All the connections on this faucet were quick and simple.
I noticed in another comment that someone had a problem with the flex hose connection coming apart. The directions are VERY specific as to how this is to be made - even showing 3 ways NOT to do it. All I can say is, "Your on your own pal for if you don't follow the instructions!"
In closing, the is the first job where my use of "plumbers language" was at an all time low! ;-)
GREAT PRODUCT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnSaNair Meets our needs
Satisfied with this faucet. The water flow is smooth in both spray and the flow position. The MagnaTite could have been more stronger, one needs to retract the pull-out very near to the faucet mouth ( around 1/3 of an inch) before the magnetism pulls it in position. Overall a very good buy.
