Simple Install Unit works well, as described, installed easily, and looks good. Could not ask for mor3e July 12, 2014
Really like my new faucet. I would buy another Delta product. When I was looking for a new kitchen faucet our plumber suggested looking at Delta because of the quality you get for the price. As I began looking at faucets I preferred Deltas faucet designs and was impressed with the features on the faucets. The chrome finish is beautiful and easy to care for. There are several features I enjoy having on my new faucet. I love the pull down spray feature, the hose is nice and long, the two spray settings are wonderful ,and the swivel spout adds extra convienience. June 12, 2012
I love this faucet! I looked at many different models before purchasing this Delta faucet. The faucet works great and still looks like new 3 years later. The only complaint that I have is that the cartridge had to be replaced early on. I felt like it should have lasted a bit longer. Delta sent me a new cartridge, a benefit that I really like.

Drippy faucet after a few years The faucet is beautiful! After a few years of use, it is a drippy faucet requiring constant monitoring to make sure we aren't leaving the house or going to bed with a drippy faucet wasting water. October 29, 2012

Answer: 
Hi jasimek, Thank you for your question. It sounds like either the set screw is not tight enough, or the screw is not in contact with the stem portion of the dst cartridge. Make sure the cartridge is seated properly, and that the bonnet and sleeve assembly are tightened correctly. The handle set screw should attach to the cartridge stem on the flat portion of the stem preventing the handle from spinning. I have attached a link to the parts breakdown for the model 978-DST to help you with your repair.
Thanks,
Dave

Difference in finishes

What is the difference between your arctic stainless finish and your stainless finish? Does one match stainless steel appliances better than the other?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet Artic Stainless finish has a bluish tint to it and does more closely resemble the stainless steel appliances that are out in the market today.

Delta Faucet Stainless Steel finish has a more gold finish to it and is used in the bathroom to match the gold toned finishes there.

Is it possible to increase GPM?

model: Leland 978-RB-DST

I saw a response about increasing the GPM from 1.8 to 2.2 but the model # in the response could not be found when I searched for it.

The response was RP514780RB, but is it really RP51480RB?

Is replacing that part all that is needed? Is there a need to replace the O ring as well? I want to order a new faucet and will have it professionally installed, so want to be sure i order all the necessary parts.

Thank you!

Thank you for your question. The model number for the 2.2 gpm wand is RP51480RB. You will not need any extra orings to replace this wand. The wands will just need to be switched.

Thank you for your question. Delta Faucet model # 978-RB-DST has a flow rate of 1.8 gpm at 60 psi. We do offer a wand assembly that includes an aerator which will increase the flow rate to 2.2 gpm at 60 psi. That model number is RP514780RB.
